Tasting Notes

Koseret has complex and exciting flavours. It has delicious aromas of basil and tomato vines. The taste is mildly sweet and herbaceous, with a light lemon finish. 

Cold infusion brings out a more pronounced tomato vine note and sweetness.

Both hot and cold, it makes an extremely refreshing drink.


For a hot infusion use 1g of leaf per 150ml of water.

For a cold infusion use 1g per litre of water.


For the optimum infusion use 100°C (212°F) water.

For a cold infusion, fill at room temperature and place in the fridge to infuse.


Infuse for 1 - 3 minutes, tasting regularly.

(This is one of the rare herbal leafs that will become bitter with longer infusion, so make sure you try little and often.)

For a cold infusion, infuse for 8 hours or overnight.


You can infuse these herbs at least three times.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.
