Star Anise

Star anise is the dried, star-shaped fruit of a small Asian evergreen tree. While unrelated to each other, star anise has an even stronger licorice flavor than anise seed and is used in many baking recipes. It is a key ingredient in Chinese savory cooking and is one of the five ingredients in the renowned "Chinese 5-Spice" blend.

Spice Fun Fact: Originating in southern China, star anise is the fruit of an evergreen plant and is the very center of the compass rose in The Spice & Tea Exchange®’s registered logo.
