Interestingly there was something almost “bubblegum” like about this tisane at first taste. However, as it cooled I got more of those basil/tulsi notes that I love so much as well as a sweeter orange with a little bit of a pithy undertone. I personally prefer purple tulsi much more over vana/green tulsi but this was still pretty well balanced with the fruity flavours and I liked that it wasn’t lost/hidden in the blend. Weirdly, I did not get much in the way of ginger and that’s usually a flavour I’m more sensitive to.
I kind of want to cold brew this – it feels like those fruity notes and slight herbaceous quality would work really well that way.
