Basil is one of the most popular herbs around the world, used in Indian, Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean and just about any cuisine under the sun. Basil grows best in hot, dry conditions, which is why Regency's dried basil from Egypt is one of the best varieties in the world. It has a highly savoury taste thanks to highly concentrated volatile oil contents. These give it it's lovely savoury flavour, comparable to oregano, celery, carrots and cilantro. Our most popular use for these is slow cooking in a lasagne, and also sprinkling on top of freshly baked pizzas. To ensure the best natural flavour, Regency Basil is naturally sundried for preservation.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
