This seed is not to be confused with Star Anise, Aniseed is an entirely different spice found in the Mediterranean and is one of the most popular spices in cooking today because of it's unbeatable sweet and fresh taste. Regency Aniseed from Turkey imparts a beautiful liquorice, cardamom and honey flavour. It's highly aromatic, and very convenient to use, just like any other seed. Many times in industry, it's also diluted with Carom Seeds, a seed which looks very similar, but has an entirely different flavour. Also known as: anise, saunf, sombu, badishop, variyali.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
