In Indian cuisine, it is added to make flavoured water and herbal teas. It can be used to garnish sauces and soups. Some spices are related to the culinary basil family, though sweet basil can have floral and peppery notes. Some species of the plant have a clove (laung)-like aroma, while others may yield a fresh, lemony flavour.
