About Vana Tulsi
from Upton Tea
Whereas the other varieties of tulsi, Krishna tulsi and Rama tulsi are named after (and associated with) Hindu deities, the word "vana" refers to forest; vana tulsi is the wild variety of tulsi growing in India, across Africa, and in many other regions of the world. However, when sold, it is typically from cultivated plants, not wild-harvested plants.
In aroma and flavor, vana tulsi is similar to, but distinct from all varieties of tulsi from the Ocimum sanctum plant. It is also distinct from the familiar sweet basil, although its aroma tends to resemble sweet basil more than it does the other holy basils. All three species of basil, however, are quite similar.
