Thai Basil 'Siam Queen'

Thai basils are stronger than sweet basils, and this variety, 'Siam Queen', has a licorice flavor. A member of the mint family, fragrant basils are often made into teas thought to sooth upset tummies. For extra flavor, steep a tablespoon of grated lemon peel and two teaspoons of black tea leaves in your basil tea.
