What to do with fast-growing basil? Drop the trimmings into tea (hot or cold) and serve. It's amazing and besides infusing your tea with wonderful sweet/spice, adds antioxidants and other good things. I like lemon basil the best in my tea, but experiment with any of our yummy basil (7 varieties available!) and tell us what you think.

I like to brew some peach iced tea (I use an herbal boxed/flavored tea) and then chill it. To sweeten, I stir in basil simple syrup* and garnish with another few sprigs of basil. Occasionally, for a grown-up treat, I will muddle some basil in a glass, pour in a little vodka, and top off with the tea/syrup mix.
*To make basil simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat until the sugar dissolves, and then stir in a good handful of basil; remove from heat. Let it steep for about 30 minutes, strain and store in the fridge.
