Red Chai Masala - Tulsi Tea
I’m sipping another amazing Tulsi tea by Organic India that Janine sent over to me. The taste is rich and very spicy. The tea was probably at its best after about five minutes of brewing. For some reason, this tea makes me think of pumpkins, maybe it is the pumpkin cake spices, Halloween that is nearing, or the Autumn.

I like to drink this tea with milk but it goes well without as well. It makes me feel sleepy and dreamy. The tea is perfect for cool Autumn evenings when you want just to cuddle in a warm bed and fall asleep, listening to the wind blow and rain hit the roof of the house. It is easy to give this tea full five stars * * * * *

Sweet Rose TulsiYou can’t get Tulsi tea from Finland but Janine has been sending me every now and then various kinds of Tulsi tea bags. The tea is absolutely lovely and I must say I have become addicted. First time I got Tulsi tea bags I was pregnant and needed to find out about it if it is safe for me. Several web sites said that it is actually recommended in India for pregnant women. It has several health benefits and it is referred as Holy Basil tea over there.

As you can’t buy the tea in Finland, I started to think if you could actually grow your own. I grow a wide variety of different basils during the Finnish summer (short but usually quite warm) ranging from the basic one to Thai. I ordered some seeds so let’s see how this will go. We will report back! : )

There are several flavors of the Organic India Tulsi Tea.  My favorite is the Sweet Rose tulsi. The taste is very sweet and smells and tastes beautifully rosy. Another favorite of mine is the Chamomille Honey. This one is the best Chamomille tea I have ever tasted. This tea is very sweet too and there is some interesting side taste that is difficult to identify, it is slightly like licorice. Both of these teas taste good without milk but I prefer to drink them with milk. Definitely no sweeteners needed. I will write later about the other Tulsi teas that I have tasted but these are my favorite ones and I give both of them easily five stars!
