I don't often drink herbal teas but tulsi just happens to be one of my favorites. Although it has many purported health benefits, I simply like the way it tastes. I thought that the packaging for this offering from +Spicely Organics was really cute because of the whimsical drawing. The taste was sweet and earthy with grassy notes and a strong hint of pepper. I definitely wouldn't suggest adding milk but a touch of honey might be nice. Most herbals come off as medicinal but tulsi always seems to be the right balance for me. Spicely Organics has an entire line of teas and I am definitely curious to try the others after enjoying this one so much. When I was offered a sample I specifically requested the plain stuff but they also offer several flavored tulsi blends.
