Leaf Type: Tulsi
Where to Buy: The Tao of Tea
Tulsi with hints of lemony flavor makes a great combination. We chose 100% organic Australian Lemon Myrtle for the blend because it had the perfect strength to balance the brew. Complemented with the fragrant sweetness of calendula flowers.

Oh, what a pleasant cup. So gentle and relaxing … perfect for later in the evening (which it happens to be right now), it seems to instill a sense of serenity – I can feel the stress of the day melting away as I sip this.
It has a slight medicinal taste, but I don’t find it to be medicinal in an off-putting way. I think a better word to describe it would be herbaceous, although there are those who would say that herbaceous and medicinal are quite similar descriptive words. I don’t think so, though I can see how some might construe them as similar.
The slightly peppery, slightly minty tones of the tulsi meld beautifully with the light citrus-y tones of the lemon myrtle. I don’t usually notice too much flavor from marigold petals, but because the overall character of this tisane is rather subtle the sweet floral tones do present themselves in the flavor here.
A very enjoyable, naturally caffeine-free cup – perfect for those evenings when you want to unwind. This tea will calm your spirit and mind, and even help relieve your tension.
1 thought on “Marigold Lemon Tulsi Blend from The Tao of Tea”
The Tao of Tea makes wonderful teas. I was fortunate to sample several of their tea in 2011 and I enjoyed them fully. I am not as familiar with Tulsi but after viewing this review, it is a tea to consider. I like Chamomile and I am thinking this may be similar and those who like chamomile for its soothing and calming quality would like this tea as well.
Good review and thank you for sharing.
