Lapunei is a type of basil that has a long connection to the tribal populations of northeast India, who thrived on wild forest edibles. Today, its cultivation in kitchen gardens serves as an indicator of agrobiodiversity and knowledge preservation over hundreds of years. This herb, with its slight lemon aroma, can be used to flavor foods or be drunk as a tea that has a sedative affect and soothes stomach problems. A diminishing forest habitat is one of the greatest threats to the future of lapunei as an Indian food tradition.
