    Baby Kato's Note:

    This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 - India. This recipe was found on Indian Food Forever . Now this sounds good. I often am left wondering what I'm going to do with all the basil growing in the garden. What a great use for it. Please note: Cooking time is for steeping of the tea.

      I made 1 serving only for me. The basil has a light taste with the tea. Both of them are perfect together. I really enjoyed it with just a little bit of milk. No sugar in my tea. Thanks Baby Kato :) Made for Photo tag game

      Wow, what a surprise. This simple recipe for a simple cup of tea is great! I too, always have way too much basil. But, have to be honest wasn't sure about combining tea and basil. Very refreshing and tasty. I don't use cream in my tea so that is the only ingredient I did not use. Will definitely be making this again. Made for ZWT8 and The Wild Bunch.
