Description

If you’re looking to add some bold and aromatic flavors to your favorite Thai dishes, Thai basil is a must-try ingredient. This herb boasts a sweet and slightly spicy taste, with notes of anise and licorice. The leaves are shiny and dark green, and have a slightly tougher texture than regular basil.

In Thai cuisine, Thai basil is commonly used in stir-fries, curries and soups, and pairs well with meats such as chicken, pork, and beef. It’s also a great addition to salads and spring rolls, adding a refreshing and fragrant touch.
