Star Anise, also called Chinese Star Anise and Star Aniseed, is a spice obtained from the fruits of an Asian shrub. It is so-named because the seed pods are star-shaped and contain a highly aromatic compound called anethole, which is responsible for the anise-like flavor of the spice.

Star anise is a common seasoning in Indian and Asian foods. Whole star anise is also used in potpourri mixtures and tea blends.
