Tulsi or Holy Basil is sometimes called "The Queen of Herbs", the most sacred of herbs in India! In Ayurveda, it is thought to be the elixir of life. It is a member of the mint family and high in antioxidants and other phyto-chemicals. Purple Leaf Tulsi is known for its slightly spicy, peppery flavor with cinnamon under tones.
