So, what is thai basil?

Thai basil, also known as "holy basil" or "hot basil," is a type of basil native to Southeast Asia. It has a distinctive aroma and flavor, with hints of anise, licorice, and mint, and is often used in Thai, Vietnamese, and other Southeast Asian cuisines. Thai basil leaves are larger and darker than sweet basil leaves, and they have a slightly purple tint. The leaves are typically used fresh and added to soups, curries, stir-fries, and salads for a burst of fresh, aromatic flavor. Thai basil is also commonly used in herbal remedies for its potential health benefits, including reducing inflammation and promoting relaxation.
