This exotic spice is often underused because the commonly sold form is too harsh. Our Star Anise flowers are sourced from their traditional location in Guangdong, and impart a lovely sweet and liquorice flavour to food. Use one flavour to flavour any liquids, or grind a small amount and use as any dry spice. Star Anise is highly versatile. We've seen it work great in cooking things from Tofu and Chicken, all the way to Desserts and in French Fine Dining. Also known as: Star Aniseed, Indian anise, Chinese anise, Badian anise, Sternanis, Badian, Anis étoilé, Anis de la Chine, Badiane, सौंफ का पौधा, Badayan, chakriphool, lavanga poo, बादियान, 八角.

Industry Knowledge Star Anise is indigenous to South Eastern China, and also produced in Vietnam and India. Within China, Star Anise is grown in four provinces (Fujian, Guangdong, Guanxi and Yunnan). Regency Star Anise come from Guangdong - the province best known for providing natural good coloured and flavoured star anise, free from colourants and preservatives. These star anise have a stronger liquorice taste than their other counterparts and is one of the key ingredients to Chinese Five Spice powder. Star Anise requires specific agro climatic conditions available only in the traditional growing areas, which is why it's vital to get star anise from these regions. It prefers woodlands, sunny edges, and dappled shade, growing well in humus rich, mildly acidic to neutral soils and toleratant of temperatures down to –10 degrees C. Learn more about Star Anise.
