Star Anise has a distinct licorice flavour similar to that of anise or fennel. Star Anise contains anethole, the same ingredient that gives the unrelated anise its flavour.

Organic Star Anise is widely grown for commercial use in China, India, and most other countries in Asia. Star Anise is an ingredient of the traditional five-spice powder of Chinese cooking and is a major ingredient in the making of pho, a Vietnamese noodle soup. Star Anise has been used in a tea as a traditional remedy for rheumatism. The seeds are sometimes chewed after meals to aid digestion.

Star Anise is a versatile spice that can be enjoyed in sweet and savoury dishes. Try adding it to soup, stew, broth, marinade and sauces. Star Anise adds an extra element of flavour to desserts. Use it as a tea.
