Has anyone brewed mead with basil specifically? If so, how did it taste?

I had a thought of using basil, thyme and anise as a combination for an italian themed flavor profile.

Basil and thyme? Is this for a cooking wine? Anise is a great flavor in a liqueur or wine but I dunno about basil or thyme..

I’ve used basil in a Belgian triple. It was at an admittedly small amount but I thought it played nice. I don’t know about thyme or anise. I don’t think thyme would fit and I don’t like pronounced anise but those are personal preferences.
