Basil seeds are small, slightly flattened seeds that have a hard outer shell with a dark black colour. When steeped in boiling water, they take on a gelatinous texture, rather like tiny tadpoles!
How does it taste?
Basil Seeds Tea intrigues the senses with a lovely light-yellow shade and a thick layer of dark, jelly-like seeds at the bottom of your cup.

Then bite into the seeds and be wowed by a textural release of floral notes and a hint of charnushka.
