Sorich Organics is an authentic food brand that I came to know in the recent times. There are very few food brands in India that seem to be safe & trustworthy. I was convinced with their positioning and claims and decided to give it a shot. It deals in natural, organic & in-conversion organic products. They ensure that their herbs, spices, nuts, seeds and all other superfoods are grown naturally and processed without any preservative in an ethical and sustainable manner to deliver high quality & long-lasting shelf life. To ensure that they are the best in quality and tastes great, they claim to source the highest quality Indian herbs and spices directly from the most efficient growers and farms. They make sure to maintain the freshness, delicate aromas, flavors, and authenticity that contribute to the goodness of an authentic natural product. I recently got to try a few superfoods including Tulsi herb and moringa green tea from their range. Following is my take on the same.
Packaging: They come in a ziplock brown paper cover. It is a thick one of superior quality and the ziplock stays good for several uses, hence I din have to transfer it to a separate container. Also, special mention to the ecofriendly packaging instead of a plastic cover👍.

Both Moringa Green Tea & Tulsi Pure Herb are dried pieces of leaves. The Moringa looks dark green whereas the Tulsi herb is brownish green.
Moringa Green Tea – It has a grassy scent.
Tulsi Pure Herb – It has a refreshing herbal scent.
Moringa Green Tea – It has a bitter sweet taste of green tea with the hint of spinach like taste of Moringa leaves, along with the a hint of lemongrass.
Tulsi Pure Herb – Tulsi has a clove like refreshing taste combined with the spicy hint.

Efficiency: The Sorich organic Moringa green tea has a light subtle herbal+green tea flavour. If you love the taste of green tea, you may enjoy having having it alone. I’m basically not a fan of green tea taste, so I prefer combining equal amounts of moringa green tea and pure tulsi herb. As instructed I steep one spoon of each or at in boiled water, keeping it in a closed container for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong I require it. However, infusing for more than 5-10 minutes though gives it a stronger flavour, also adds a bit of bitterness, so isn’t adviceable. The tulsi herb neutralises the green tea flavour and gives a refreshing grassy and clove like taste that I liked. It feels energising and relaxing at the same time as green tea has caffeine and the other herbs like Moringa, Tulsi and lemon grass have other properties. I prefer drinking it as such without sweeteners. However, jaggery or honey can be added as per wish. To understand why jaggery is healthier, read my full article on Jaggery Vs Sugar.
Tulsi though has numerous benefits but is adviced to be avoided for daily intake as it is said to cause infertility issues. Also, though caffeine content of green tea is lower than that of its counterparts, in general it is better to avoid caffeine or atleast over dosage to begin with, of the same as it may lead to heart palpitation, convulsions, insomnia, loss of appetite, nervousness, restlessness, irritation and many more. The long term conditioning & consequence is undesirable say naturopathy experts.
- Green tea may be better than high caffeine alternatives
- Moringa & Tulsi have numerous health benefits
- Free of additives
- No added colors & flavours
- No preservatives
- Ecofriendly packaging
- Energising, relaxing & relieving
- Though green tea has lesser caffeine, it is of more harm than good in long term.
Naturoid’s Verdict: Pure herbs are amazing, no doubt but the only thing to be taken care of, when choosing them is, if they are authentic, pure and safe without additives which is a major issue today. Sorich organics seems like one. Wish they turn 100% organic soon.
