Five Spice Powder Technical Notes
Ingredients: Star aniseed flower, Cassia bark, Green Fennel Seeds, Clove buds, Ginger.
Five Spice Powder is as famous a foreign ingredient can get, while remaining a complete mystery. Most people know what it is, but if you ask them the ingredients, you’ll be greeted with many blank stares, or incomplete answers. The reason is simple, there is no fixed recipe. In a way, Five Spice is a lot like what Curry Powder is for Indians. Ask any Indian household what curry powder is, and you’ll be quickly told that there are many kinds of different curry powders to suit individual curries. Recipes also vary from house to house, city to city, and state to state! In this regard, Five Spice is very similar. Recipes vary from household to household and province to province. In some special cases, such as in Sichuan Province, entire ingredients are different (they prefer to substitute Fennel Seeds / Ginger for Sichuan Peppercorns)!
Regency has heavily researched various recipes of Five Spice Powders to find the most popular blend without compromising on the quality of ingredients, and does not substitute any with cheap alternatives. All ingredients are the premium version of the spice (for instance, we use Clove Buds instead of stems.

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.
