If you are looking for a genovise basil this not the one to buy. Because it has a very different flavor and leaf texture. I found though that it makes not to bad tasting sun tea,made with peppermint,spearmint and fresh blueberries.
I took mostly blue spice basil in amount,than Peppermint,than spearmint,until a glass gallon jar was about 1/8 full(for a stronger tea I would use more)than filled it with filtered water about half way. After that I added maybe two Tablesoons of blueberries and sqaushed them with my fingers to open them up to release their juice,than I added them to the jar and let it sit in the sun all day.
I hope this gives you an idea of what can be done with it. Because I really didn't know what to use it for since it wasn't a huge succes in fruit salad for me.
