Tulsi Tea Seeds?

When I first lived in India, I made the mistake of confusing this with Mediterranean basil which has a very different taste, but rather similar appearance. The basil called Tulsi is not the same as, but is similar to the basil used in Thai cooking.

The standard dictionary of Hindostani tells us that Tulsi is a word of Sanskrit origin: The shrub holy basil, Ocymum sanctum (said to have been produced from the hair of the goddess Tulasi;, and held in great veneration by Hindus)

Curiously the word basil is also a high status word, meaning something like 'royal'
