I visted the Tea Desire store in Vernon last week and I picked up a bunch of little two-cup samples that they were selling quite cheaply. This one smells like an Italian spice mix – appropriate since tulsi is in the same genus as the sweet basil many of us cook with. It has that same basil flavour but mixed with some peppery notes. I’m not sure the "lemon’ part of the name is entire deserved as it isn’t very noticable, though what’s there meshes well with the basil. Very interesting – it makes me curious about trying other tulsi teas.

So I sent out the SSTTB today to OMGsrsly! Here’s hoping it makes it to you efficiently! I also took out my rent money, and then because Tea Desire is in the same mall as both the post office and bank I went to I made an unscheduled trip there, and of course I bought some stuff.

I’m actually really proud though because I only ended up getting another Adeline infuser mug (they’re just so pretty!) and a latte – I managed to walk away without getting suckered into picking up any loose leaf for at home. Go me! The new mug is a pretty white colour with a golden trim and show pony on adjacent sides with a ‘covering’ in teal and blue. I should take a picture of it once I make something in it…

This isn’t what I got as a latte though; it was the sample of the day and since I’ve never had it before, and because I recently had my first Tulsi tea and am curious to try more stuff with Tulsi in it I took advantage of the sample and had a small “shot glass” worth. I think overall I wasn’t too super impressed; I tasted a little lemon and there was some pepper notes either from the rooibos base or the peppercorns, and then the Tulsi came through more in the mid sip with an offbeat mint flavour alongside what felt like lawn trimmings? Lastly the whole thing ended with a little licorice sweetness.

The whole sample just felt a little busy to me, and I felt like the flavours were not all meshing together to create one whole, smooth feeling. I suppose I can see where some people would maybe enjoy it but while it wasn’t terrible it just wasn’t for me either.
