Taster’s Review:

This Organic Unwind Tulsi Tisane from Spicely Organics has a fairly simple ingredient list – tulsi, cinnamon and rose – but sometimes simplicity works.  It certainly did in the case of this blend; it’s really quite tasty.

Since there is no camellia sinensis or other ingredients that were likely to become bitter if oversteeped, I went ahead and steeped this for 10 minutes in 195°F water.  The result is a flavorful cup that has strong cinnamon overtones but it’s a natural cinnamon flavor:  not that overly sweet-hot red-hot-candies sort of cinnamon-y flavor.  This tastes like the cinnamon you’d sprinkle on your toast or over your bowl of oatmeal in the morning.  It’s warm and zingy yet sweet.

The tulsi gives the cup a somewhat herbaceous note – I taste notes of basil.  Basil and cinnamon are not two flavors that I would normally think to combine but they work nicely together to create a sweet yet savory note with hints of warm, zesty spice.

The rose offers a nice floral undertone.  I like the way the rose and cinnamon work together – this is a flavor combination that I’ve been fond of for a long time and I’m happy to see another company embrace the combination.

A very calming, relaxing blend – just exactly the type of tisane I’d turn to if I wanted to “Unwind”!
