Tulsi Original Herbal Tea Review

A Odd Tasting Tea With Loads of Health Benefits

Summary : This tea from Tulsi Teas is a herbal tea that contains very different, all of which are organic, list of ingredients. While this tea is a very healthy tea to drink, I found the flavor of the tea to be rather uninspiring with a rather nasty aroma once brewed.

Review : I'm feeling experimental tonight. And as such, I was in the mood to try something totally different, seeking out a tea flavor that I've never had before. And so I dug around my tea sampler selection and came across a tea from Tulsi Teas that seemed like it might hit the spot.

Tulsi Original Tea

Tulsi teas, produced by Organic India, uses very different ingredients in their teas. Tulsi names their teas after the herb that is used in all of their teas, which is called Tulsi appropriately enough. The Tulsi leaf is then mixed with several other types of organic ingredients for a very unique herbal tea indeed.

Here is how Tulsi describes this tea on their website : "Delicious, fragrant, exquisite - the finest Rama, Krishna and Vana Tulsi leaves and blossoms are expertly blended to create a soothing, uplifting, full-bodied beverage that is inspiringly fresh and flavorful. Tulsi, 'The Queen of Herbs' encourages tranquility, clarity, relief from stress, robust immunity and stamina. It offers respite from colds and flu, helps to balance the metabolism and is rich in antioxidants . With its fresh taste and astonishing array of health benefits, The Original Tulsi Tea is, quite simply... perfect."

This tea is a organic tea and contains the following ingredients : Rama Tulsi, Krishna Tulsi, Vana Tulsi.

The fragrance of the tea before brewing is kind of boring. Nothing special. Nothing awful. But definitely different.

Unfortunately, I found the flavor of this tea to be somewhat lacking. The flavor was quite strong, but tasted so differently that I still can't quite pin down what this tea actually tastes like. Yes...the flavor of the tea is THAT different!

Now, the flavor...at least to me....isn't bad. It just isn't a flavor I would describe as good either, or a tea that I would want to drink daily.

Additionally, the tea did have one unfortunate aspect to it...I found the tea once brewed had kind of a nasty aroma about it. The tea really smelled like it was somewhat burnt...and a burnt smell in a tea is something that is most definitely not for me!

Overall, this is a very unique tea...in both terms of ingredients used and the teas flavor. And due to the ingredients found in the tea, this tea is very healthy to drink too. But the unpleasant aroma of the tea means I definitely won't be drinking this particular tea again.

Recommendation : Maybe. If the fragrance of the tea is more to your liking, you may enjoy this tea more than I did. And while I personally found the flavor of the tea to be lacking, it is most definitely different...and perhaps people with taste buds dissimilar to my own may enjoy this tea more than I did.
