Basil seeds for jelly? Any idea where to find it?

I remember a a Vietnamese classmate who made a jelly drink out of soaked basil seeds. Where can I get these in NYC? Would rather avoid going to a gardening supply and poison myself…

      I've gotten them online and at Kalustyan's. There's a great recipe for making a drink with basil seeds and rose syrup in My Bombay Kitchen.
