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.
