Tulsi or Holy basil is considered a medicinal plant with different parts of the plant possessing various different medicinal properties. Tulsi is said to be a remedy for digestive problems, acidity and other digestive disorders and help reduce weight as well.
Ingredients: Organic Tulsi, Organic Lemongrass & Organic Ginger.
This Organic Tulsi with Lemongrass & Ginger from Tea of Life is a really tasty tisane. I appreciate the simplicity of this blend and I like that it’s all organic.
The Tulsi adds a slightly herbaceous flavor to the cup but it isn’t too much. It has a light “basil-y” sort of flavor with hints of mint and pepper. The lemongrass adds a pleasing citrus note that is a little lemon-y and a little lime-ish. Not too tart, though and I like the brightness that the citrus note adds to the cup.
The ginger is a soft ginger note. This isn’t a peppery-kick kind of ginger taste, there is a subtle pepper taste that is accented by the tulsi, but I like that the other elements of this herbal tea balance the pepper notes out so that it doesn’t taste too peppery. There is a slight peppery aftertaste – a pleasant peppery aftertaste! – that I find invigorating.
I find this to be a nicely balanced cup. The components meld together in a seamless way. A really tasty tisane.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
