Mint Tulsi Chai

description

Aromatic and flavorsome, nothing gets you refreshed like a cup of this tea. Heady perfume of mint enlivens your senses almost instantly. The taste has top notes of sweet holy basil along with mellow flavor of spearmint that lends some astringency to this tea. Perfect for balmy evenings.

My favorite Chai ever!

Best Served : Morning.

I absolutely love this tea. I am a huge fan of mint in general and this tea artfully blends it together with high-quality black tea. I always rely on this tea to energize me in the morning so it has recently become part of my daily routine. It is the best chai tea I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.

The blend of mint and tulsi with black tea is simultaneously refreshing and soothing. This is the perfect tea to enjoy on a rainy summer afternoon.

Probably the most unique tasting chai that I've ever experienced. The mint and basil combo is superbly aromatic, and very relaxing. A nice way to end the day.

one of my favourite teas for cold days/nights

Smells great. Tulsi scent covers my whole mouth as i sip on it while breathing out at the same time. The taste of mint is just like a garnish, very very slight. Overall, i love it :) Great for rainy days and cold weathers. Imagine sitting at your favourite corner on the balcony looking up the sky full of stars, with a novel on one hand and a cigarette or cigar on the other, while sipping on this relaxing tea that calms the nerves. Splendid. Evening well spent.

Would go great with Indian food

Likes : Great Aroma, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon, Evening.

* Unusual combination of flavors that is compelling. * Ordered a sample originally and then ordered a larger quantity because I enjoyed this tea. * An almost curry-like flavor component that would accompany an East Indian meal wonderfully.v * A go-to late evening treat that is anything but your usual-suspect chai.

A surprising favorite

I adore this tea. I thought I would like it since I enjoy the flavors of mint and tulsi, but it's even better than expect. It has a pleasant herby, green taste and it is the perfect afternoon pick me up. Word of warning, it does go bitter fast so I set a timer to prevent over steeping.
