Honest Tea Heavenly Lemon Tulsi Iced Tea

Have you heard of the herb "Tulsi" before? I confess that I had not until I saw it on the Honest Tea Heavenly Lemon Tulsi Iced Tea label. Turns out, "Tulsi" is also known as "holy basil", a naturally caffeine-free herb. Honest Tea says, we infuse organic tulsi with aromatic lemon peel, lemon myrtle and lemon grass for a soothing blend that transcends ordinary herbal tea.

I received samples of this tea to review recently, and I found there to that there was a strong presence of the herb & tea flavor - a taste I can't quite describe, but it wasn't too overpowering and it was rather pleasant. The tea was also a bit tangy and minty, and lightly sweetened. I think this might take some getting used to, especially if you're used to having more heavily sweetened tea drinks, but what I love about this Lemon Tulsi Tea is that I can taste the ingredients - the tea, the lemon & the basil.

Each 8 ounce serving of Honest Tea Heavenly Lemon Tulsi Iced Tea provides 30 calories and 8 grams of sugars. The ingredients are purified water, organic cane sugar, organic herbal blend (organic green roobios, organic lemongrass, organic tulsi, organic lemon peel, organic lemon myrtle), organic lemon juice concentrate, organic lemon extract.

As I mentioned, I received samples of this for review, but I regularly see this (and other Honest Tea products) at my local grocery store for around $1.70 for a 16 ounce bottle. And I would buy this flavor in the future - it's light and refreshing and ... different. Just remember, it's lightly sweetened!
