iHerb Customer Reviews
After trying several different varieties of Tulsi, this one is by far preferred.
As I write this, the product is sold out, and I'm not surprised. This tea has such a wonderful, delicate flavour. I enjoy it in the evening after dinner, or just while relaxing. I don't even take the leaves out, and I've found that it never gets too strong, and is never bitter. Highly recommend this tea. It definitely has that basil flavour to it, but basil is one of my favourite herbs, so it's perfect for me.
