Production & Sourcing
Harvesting: Basil leaves are carefully harvested from basil plants that have been grown following organic farming practices. The leaves are usually picked when the plant has matured, but before it starts flowering to ensure the best flavor and aroma.
Cleaning and Sorting: After harvesting, the basil leaves are thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt, debris, or insects. The leaves are then sorted to select the best-quality leaves for drying.
Drying: The selected basil leaves are dried to remove their moisture content while preserving their flavor and aromatic compounds. During the drying process, the leaves are carefully monitored to avoid over-drying or burning, which could affect the final product’s quality.
