Is there anything more beautiful to look at than these perfectly formed stars of spice? Star Anise is a warming, liquorice-like spice that will add depth to so many dishes. It is essential in a number of Asian-style soups, especially known as the star (get it) ingredient in Vietnamese Pho.
Star Anise is a favoured addition to our 11 Spice Chai, as well as in the Caffeine Free version. It brings warmth to our masala chai blends, and works magically alongside ginger and cardamom! In Ayurveda it is said to have positive effects on digestion and is a good antibacterial.
Star Anise can also be used to add fragrance and a warming taste to sweet desserts such as creme caramel. It goes beautifully with citrus in both sweet and savoury dishes.
