Basil Seeds Drink (Creepy)

Thai Basil Seed Drink

Thai Basil Seed Drink

I found it in Kaifan Co. “supermarket”; it is Thai sweet basil drink. These frog spawn looking things are basil seeds when soaked in water.

They say it is healthy (According to Thai tradition, this drink also helps a person lose weight), refreshing and has unusual texture. Traditionally, it is flavored with rose water.

Anyway, I did not dare to try it!

      Don’t know! This is sweet drink, but maybe it’s if you replace honey with lemon.

    This looks like mehyawa, it’s just a seed drink, seeds in water, lots of seeds, like, seedful.

    Seeding the seedage of seedation.

      I passed by Kaifan yesterday! I thought to give it a shot, but still could not do it 😛

    I just tried it, and it tasted like milk with honey!, the bursty seddy stuff kind of amusing, you spend around 10 minutes just to burst them away in your mouth….!!!

    not bad, but not that impressive!

    still don’t know why should I shake it well before drinking if the seed arescatered every where?

    you can drink it in hot mode or cold mode!

    This is a little late to reply for this but I just found out about this website.

    Now, whereas this is a little “modern” and bottled, I have had this drink a LOT.

    only difference is, we used to prepare it at home. its little black puppy seed like which gets a gelous cover once its soaked in water. I am sure you can still buy it in Kuwait.

    Kuwaities call it “braihooh” and iranians call it “tokhma sharbatee” if you ever buy if from the iranian shopkeepers. it is usually mixed with saffron water.

    my first memeory of it is ramadan summers
    in the mid 80s probably. we still have it at home by the way.

    Some sandwich shops in bneid al-gar served this (i saw it a couple of years back). it was either badr al-bdoor or al-ghadeer.

    one last note to exzombie, erm … i dont think you need to burst them away. hahaha.

    trust me, the real thing am sure is nicer than the bottled. just some saffron, water and sugar. serve them cold.

    I forgot to add that you add “may ligga7” with it

      Never too Jamal … Thank you for your great addition. Now, I really want to give it a try; the fresh one not the bottled 🙂
