Thai Holy Basil, also known as Kra Pao or Tulsi, is best enjoyed fresh and added right at the end of your cooking to preserve its flavour and delicate texture. Use Holy Basil to elevate mixed green and grain salads. In addition, garnish almost anything from entrées to desserts and a variety of culinary creations. Specialty Produce notes that this Thai Herb is commonly used to make tea. However, in Thailand, it is a popular culinary ingredient. It is an important ingredient in one of the more famous Thai street dishes, chicken with Holy Basil or ‘Gai Pad Grapow’. In many Asian stir fry dishes, this aromatic herb is used with garlic, fish sauce and chillies to impart flavour into meat or seafood.

Taste: Similarily to Thai Basil, Holy Basil is extremely aromatic. It possesses a distinctive sweet taste and a clove aroma, with mild hints of black pepper, lemon and peppermint. Holy Basil has also been known to have a spicy and peppery bite.
