Star Anise

Star Anise

Chinese star anise is one of the most beautiful and aromatic spices in the world. Star Anise comes by it’s name from perfect 8-12 pointed seed pod stars which are the deeply fragrant fruit of the native Chinese evergreen (Illicium Verum), a member of the Magnolia family.  Star anise boasts  a  much stronger, sweeter and denser licorice flavor and aroma than the more common Spanish anise seeds.

It is also known to promote vitality and vigor in the human system, reduce pain in arthritis, and is a common ingredient in the French liqueur Pernod. This fragrant, licorice-spiced plant is now playing a starring role in one of the most sought-after drugs on the planet: Tamiflu.
