Star anise is a spice obtained from the star-shaped, immature fruits of an Asian evergreen tree. As the name suggests, the spice has a flavor that is reminiscent of anise, or licorice. The seed pods are used whole to flavor beverages, including mulled wine, teas and infused vodka or gin. Star anise is widely used in Asian cuisine and is a traditional component of chai, Chinese 5-Spice and garam masala seasoning blends. The aromatic pods or the ground spice are used in dried and simmering potpourri mixtures.

  • Star Anise, also called Chinese Star Anise and Star Aniseed, is a spice obtained from the fruits of an Asian shrub. It is so-named because the seed pods are star-shaped and contain a highly aromatic compound called anethole, which is responsible for the anise-like flavor of the spice.

    As a component of garam masala and Chinese Five-Spice Powder, star anise is a common seasoning in Indian and Asian foods. Whole star anise is also used in potpourri mixtures and tea blends.
