From Tealyra

Our Tulsi Peppermint Mate blend is pure organic bliss; it has not been flavored or roasted. Blended to encourage stress relief, and provide you with the energy you need to thrive! It has a wonderful, satisfying, minty flavor!

Yerba Mate (pronounced “yur-ba mah-tay”) is Brazil’s national beverage! It is made from shade-grown leaves of the Amazonian rain forest holly tree. Its leaf packs a powerful of dose caffeine, yet has the health benefits of tea. It is naturally high in minerals and antioxidants making it an excellent, balanced and healthy brew.

Tulsi is the Sanskrit name of the “Holy Basil” plant grown in India, and is part of the mint family. Widely consumed throughout India (much more than coffee!). It has a unique fresh flavor- like mint.

Our pure blend is perfect for achieving a calm energy; as mate and tulsi work together by giving you a boost of vitamins and amino acids along with caffeine (naturally present in mate). At first sip, you will appreciate the surprisingly light nature of the blend, it has a delightful herbal “green” taste, that is followed by sweetness and a refreshing burst of cool mint!

Try preparing your Calm Force in an authentic Yerba Mate Gourd and Bombilla for a traditional experience!

Samuari TTB Tasting note #1

I thought this was a herbal blend (today is a caffeine free day). The name is misleading, since yerba mate is heavily caffeinated and not what I associate with “calm”. More like “energetic and awake”. I should have checked the ingredients xD I like to come up with tasting notes without knowing the ingredients so that I’m not influenced to taste something that I wouldn’t have picked up on.

Anyway, it has the typical roasty mate flavour (minerals, citrus, coffee grounds) in combination with medicinal herbs. I can’t find a complete ingredient list, but it seems this is unroasted mate(?) I can taste peppermint and citrus. Google says this might have tulsi/holy basil in it, but I’m not sure if it is the mint or the basil that has a slight peppery flavour. It isn’t a bad cup, but offers nothing interesting or unique. I mostly taste plain peppermint and mate.

Another tea box tea. It tastes pretty herbaceous, pretty generic. I can mostly taste the tulsi. It’s not that enjoyable – way too herby for me, and it gets bitter as it sits.

I’ve had this a few times but never wrote a tasting note because the flavor is never how I wish it to be.  First, I love the idea: Yerba mate, various tulsis and peppermint.  It’s perfect for when you’re craving an earthy flavor profile, but this might be too harsh, too earthy.  It sure looks like swampwater!  The peppermint is only noticeable in wispy sips.  The tulsi isn’t as delicious as I wish and might be overpowered by the yerba mate anyway.  I don’t know… I guess I really love purple basil and wish many tulsi teas simply featured purple basil.. but I really only know that flavor from fresh leaves, so I’m not really sure what dried purple basil even tastes like.  At least I have this blend around when I want tulsi or yerba mate. It’s not how I envisioned it though.

Interesting that you mentioned purple basil—we’ve been plant shopping for our backyard container garden and that’s one my husband specifically asked me to look for. (Alas, no luck yet.)

YES I always want a purple basil plant but that must be the one plant our local flower/veggie shop doesn’t sell.

Hubby found seeds last night rather than actual plant sets…we may give it a go.

(Wouldn’t you know it … got everything potted last night and now we have frost warnings!)

Yep, supposed to snow here on the weekend. sigh.
