2 tablespoons Thai basil seed
1/2  lemon , freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons honey
1 quarts water
1/4 cup superfine sugar, to taste
1 teaspoons banana extract ( Opcional : can add cherry extract, rose water, orange blossom water or simply vanilla extract.)
1  cups ice cubes, or more


Wash the Thai basil seeds and place the Thai basil seeds in a pitcher.
 Bring 1 cups of water to a near boil. Pour into the pitcher. Let the seeds gain in volume, about  5 minutes.
In one saucepan, dissolve the sugar with 1/2 cup of water. 
Bring to a near boil and  add the honey. Pour the syrup into the pitcher. 
Add the banana extract, the rest of the cold water and lots of ice cubes.
I served this chilled with some fresh Thai baby basil leaves
