The infusion consisted of a small, wiry, black tea base. Small, muted green pieces of tulsi leaves were mixed throughout and the scent was surprisingly sweet. I used one teaspoon in boiling water with a two-minute steep to prepare my cup. Following the steeping, the leaves still carried the sweet scent and had an almost floral quality. For me, this was quite a surprise. The liquor brewed to a deep, red cup but had little noticeable scent itself.
The first taste surprised me as well. As I finished my sip, I was greeted with a peculiar sensation. It was as though cream had been added to my drink, and the cup presented an amazing amount of body. Directly following this initial sensation, I was met with a bitter aftertaste that dissipated quickly. The overall flavor leans towards the herbaceous, but I’m unable to put my finger on an exact taste or quality that I can readily compare it to. The website describes the tea as “Unlike anything you've ever tasted” and that about sums it up my impression as well. While I did enjoy this tea, I can’t say that it is one I would want on a daily basis. Teatulia’s Tulsi Infusion provides an interesting cup and I am happy to have had the opportunity to give it a try.
