Teatulia Tulsi Infusion

Teatulia is one of my favorite companies. I love their values and the peace of mind that comes with knowing that my tea was grown in an environmental and socially responsible way. This selection was comprised of black tea blended with tulsi, also known as holy basil. According to their website the tulsi is grown in the same organic garden as the tea.  The silky pyramid bag had a spicy sweet aroma but was very different from chai or any other tea I have had. I brewed it using boiling water and steeped for about five minutes.

I haven’t tasted anything quite like this tea. The tulsi lends a very unique flavor. It was just the right amount of  spicy without being overbearing. Teatulia’s black teas are some of the best I have had and this one is no exception. I am glad that my sample consisted of several tea bags so that I can enjoy it a few more times. I plan to try it iced and I am sure that it will be just as delicious. I would definitely recommend this tea.
