Where does star anise come from?
Star anise (Illicium verum) is very similar in flavour to anise (Pimpinella anisum). However, it is not an herb like anise. Star anise seeds are fruit of a tree that originally grows in Vietnam and South-West China, but is nowadays cultivated throughout almost all of Asia. Star anise has a sweet, warm liquorice-like flavour. This is caused by the substance Anethol, which is also found in aniseed and fennel.
