this is what Richo Cech from strictly medicinals says about this variety.
"Perennial tea basil originally from India. An outstanding cultivar for producing the true tropical-type tulsi tea (as opposed to tea of temperate tulsi). Amrita tulsi makes larger plants than the other types, with excellent vigor and yield. The plants are grown at our farm here in the USA, in seclusion, in order to produce the seed offered here. Leaves as shown, green with purple highlights, on a densely-leaved, purple-stemmed bush. Amrita has a wonderful aroma and tests for the eugenol marker compound and also tests very high for the anxiolytic compound rosmarinic acid. “Amrita” is sanskrit for “immortality” and is sometimes translated as “nectar.” Thus “nectar of immortality.” According to ancient folklore, the Tulsi (tulasi) plant is a manifestation of the Divine Mother on Earth, for the benefit of all creation. Tastes good and provides gentle stimulation to body, mind and spirit. Growing tea basils brings many blessings to the household! This is the holy basil my wife and I grow for ourselves to make into tea. We find it very satisfying, with taste and aroma most appealing. Traditional usage (Ayurveda): stress, anxiety, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and dementia. Drinking tulsi tea in the morning is a fantastic way to get started. If you want to be an herbalist and are afraid you might tell somebody to take the wrong thing, then tell them to drink tulsi tea and you will be right every time."
