The Rama variety of Holy Basil is a short, annual, heavily flowered plant. It is the most common type found in cultivation in the U.S. and is known for its cooling and mellow flavor. The brewed leaves have a slight sandalwood scent, and the liquor carries a clove and licorice flavor with a mild citrus note. While not the most potent of the three varieties, it does have medicinal value and is considered to be the best tasting. Our Rama is from India.
