    Reminiscent of alpine pastures, very unusual for a masala chai

    I have not had the pleasure of trying tulsi and regarding masala chais, this is a very peculiar blend. The taste of the Assam is quite well hidden behind the huge bunch of herbs. In fact, for some reason it reminds me more of the Slovenian Mountain Tea than of a masala chai.

    In the end, the combination is quite pleasant and uplifting.

    What I found fascinating is that it tastes very similar both with milk and sugar, and without any of the two.

    Hi Matija Suklje
    Thank you so much for your encouraging feedback & for being a part of the VAHDAM tea family. Hope to keep serving you with our collection of garden fresh teas.

    curiosity turned staple

    To be honest I was slightly apprehensive about the combination of black tea and basil, of all things, then curiosity got the better of me.

    Yes, it's something completely different (but in a good way), it really is refreshing and somehow cooling, even when drunk hot (which you would expect to be a drawback in winter, but it's not).
    I suspect it would work even better in the summer, probably even cold-brew -- I'm certainly looking forward to experimenting. For now, it's 4 mins, no milk for this one.

    Verdict: I drink one mug almost daily, it's become one of the highlights of my day.

    Tulsi Basil Chai Delight

    We are enjoying the slightly sweet, flavorful Tulsi Basil Chai. This chai is a subtle variation of the Original Chai, which we also love. The additional flavor doesn't seem like basil, but adds a nice note of flavor, differentiating it from the Original Chai. A great discovery!
