Its OK"Those of you who like to cook with tea should really get some of this. I was expecting something a little more spicy, but this is not a heavy spice load--in fact I found the spice to be kinda subdued."

teatulia-logo.jpgTeatulia is another company with a great website that if you take a few minutes to peruse, it will make you want to buy their teas and support the community of the tea growers. I find it interesting that Teatulia has a created a cow co-op, whose members receive a cow and payoff their cow in milk and cow dung. Really, if you have a minute head on out to their website and check it out.

This tea is described as Spicy & Exquisite Holy Basil. It is also has organic black tea and tulsi and is ayurvedic per Teatulia. I knew when I requested the sample that it might be something that was a little outside of the scope of what I prefer to drink on a regular basis. However, the day I requested samples, I had this sweet basil salad dressing (Papa Vino's) that was amazing so... Anyway.

Teatulia claims that the sachets that the tea comes are bio-degradable and that the canister is compostable. That does score a brownie point with me. I boiled some water and immersed the sachet for two minutes. This tea smells and tastes quite different than anything I've come across on the market. The herbs used taste like they would be good in cooking some meat or rice--or maybe even in a salad dressing. Those of you who like to cook with tea should really get some of this. I was expecting something a little more spicy, but this is not a heavy spice load--in fact I found the spice to be kinda subdued.

I guess when push comes to shove this is not something that I would likely purchase unless I were into cooking with tea. It reminded me a little more a meat marinade than something that I would drink for pleasure or to quench my thirst. However, I would like to try something a little more traditional from Teatulia.
