Anise Tea Recipe

This Anise Tea Recipe is a great way to become familiar with a trendy herbal tea.  Anise tea is a very popular tea that uses anise seeds as the primary ingredient.  Many Asian countries use the word  “Yansoon” to refer to this amaing tea.  The anise seeds are always obtained from the flowering plant, Pimpinella anisum.  In rare instances, the leaves are used to supplement the seeds.  The main claim to fame for Anise Tea is its use to fight bad breath.

Anise tea (aka Aniseed),  is is sometimes confused with Star Anise Tea due to their similar names and taste.  If you’ve ever seen star anise, you would definitely remember it.  Its unique star-shaped pods are very different from the small anise seeds used to make this Anise Tea Recipe.
