Star Anise is actually the fruit of a tree in the Magnolia family which is native to southern China and Vietnam. Its aroma is much like fennel and anise seed and its taste is pungent and sweet with hints of licorice. Star Anise has assertive warmth that creates a mild numbing effect in the mouth. The aftertaste is fresh and agreeable.

Star anise pairs well with fruit and is often mixed with cinnamon and cloves to poach fruits. Use this beautiful whole star anise when concerned about presentation. We offer star anise whole, broken or ground.
