Fresh basil has an initial subtle peppery flavour. The taste then evolves into a slightly sweet, aromatic flavour. When cooking with basil it should be added at the end of cooking. Basil has a strong, pungent, sweet and somewhat menthol aroma.
The most common use of basil is for cooking, such as in tomato and pesto sauce. Sprinkled over salads and sliced tomatoes, either whole or chopped.
