Organic Heirloom Anise Basil Seeds (1000 SEEDS) High Quality, Untreated. Licorice basil's flavor is due to a chemical called anethole, an aromatic compound that occurs widely in nature in essential oils that are produced within the plant.
Description/Taste Licorice basil, a Western strain of Thai basil, is also known as anise basil as it has distinctive anise flavored qualities and aromatics. It is a lanky plant with pointed green leaves and signature burgundy tinted spiked flowers. Both the leaves and the flowers are edible. Unlike sweet basil, it is far more pungent making it one of the more intensely flavored and perfumed basil varieties.
Applications Licorice basil leaves and flowers that are crushed will burst with intense basil and licorice aromas, making a fragrant and floral-spicy paste and condiment for multiple culinary uses. It is best mixed with other ingredients to tame its powerful one-dimensional notes.
