26 Tasting Notes
Love this tea! I have been drinking the pure tulsi and also the tulsi with ginger. Love them both! Tulsi is also referred to as “holy basil”, and is revered for its calming properties. After three cups of this, I was super relaxed, almost to the point of being under the influence. Anyway, I really enjoy the taste of the tulsi ginger; a very mild ginger taste to compliment the more savory taste of the tulsi. So glad I picked this box up on a whim!
This is winter in a cup! The bold peppermint is mellowed by the sweet vanilla; all evened out by a great black tea. A great cup to keep you warm while you stroll through the snow… (Also, I tried uploading a picture of the tea, but it wasn’t working. To see a picture, the Perennial Tea Room has a nice website.)
I drank a cup of this on the way to work yesterday. I was expecting a big bang of licorice flavor, but was slightly disappointed. Yes, it has a nice, mild licorice spice mix with a nice sweet after taste, but I can find a stronger licorice taste in the Stash Licorice Spice tea. (I absolutely love licorice, if you couldn’t tell) I think I will use a higher tea to water ratio next time….
Hmmmm. So I found this unopened canister of holiday tea in my cupboard and decided to give it a go. I am not a green tea fan, but I thought that since it is blended with cinnamon and plum what could go wrong? Well, I must say there isn’t much to brag about this tea. The aroma is fairly sweet with the green tea coming through at the end. The taste, however, is quite different. Very weak! No body, whatsoever. I didn’t even use that much water and I left the bag in the entire time. I get a slight hint of bitter plum at the end but that is all! Not sure if I will be finishing this tea….
