I decided to make a post dedicated to supplying a great Star Anise Tea Recipe.  Star Anise Tea is a popular herbal tea that utilizes the fruit of Chinese Star Anise as the primary ingredient.  The tree (Illicium verum) is found in China and Vietnam.  This form of Anise Tea is similar in taste to Anise Seed Tea, but it is totally unrelated.

Before attempting to follow this Star Anise Tea Recipe, I suggest researching this tea in greater detail.  At the very minimum, you should review the best Star Anise to buy.  All of this information can be found in my Star Anise Tea Guide.

Anise Tea Recipe

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.

Anise Seed Tea Recipe

Anise seed tea is following the increasing popularity trend seen in the herbal tea community – probably due to the ease of making it with the correct anise seed tea recipe!  Overseas, it is commonly referred to as “Yansoon.”  Anise tea is created with the flowering plant Pimpinella anisum.  The tea is primarily made with the plant’s seeds, but the leaves are rarely used as well.  

Anise tea is famous because of its mild taste and amazing aroma.  Anise seeds are also used in other ways.  Anise seeds are also used in cooking.  The smell is so desirable, that they are also used to make perfumes and other fragrances.  I hope you enjoy one Anise Seed Tea Recipe.

Anise herbal tea is commonly confused with star anise herbal tea due to their close names and similar flavors.  Star anise is actually derived from an evergreen tree found in Vietnam, Illicium verum.

Nettle Tea Recipe

nettle tea recipe


Nettle tea is taking the world by storm as people are discovering the tea’s health benefits and pleasant flavor profile.  Nettle tea is made with the leaves of the “stinging” nettle plant.  The nettle plant earned this nickname due to the jagged leaves that are used to make the tea.  When these leaves come into contact with humans or animals, they inject compounds that cause a stinging sensation.  This is important to remember if you are planning on trying to collect nettle leaves from the wild; heavy gloves are necessary to avoid getting “stung.”  Once the leaves are dried or boiled, they lose the ability to sting.  It is perfectly healthy to consume the nettle leaves in the form of nettle tea.  I hope you enjoy a Nettle Tea Recipe included below.

Rooibos tea is an extremely healthy herbal tea that has become increasingly popular over the past couple of years. The tea is derived from a South African shrub, Aspalathus linearis.  You can purchase most herbal teas in two forms, loose herbal tea or tea bags.  Rooibos tea also has two varieties, traditional (red) rooibos and green rooibos.  Green rooibos has become the trendier version because it contains a higher level of antioxidants.  I decided to include more than one free rooibos tea recipe.  This post contains 6 free rooibos tea recipes.  These recipes are for red or green rooibos tea, both are delicious!
