Indigenous to China, Illicium verum is a small tree with aromatic, star-shaped fruits. Star anise is often used in culinary applications and is a traditional ingredient in Chinese five spice blends. Star anise pods have a stronger flavor than anise seed and are considered warming. They can be added to infusions, mulled wine, herbal syrups, and liqueurs. Anise star pods are also employed in tincturing and homemade mouthwashes.
