With its easily recognizable star shape and pungent flavor, Regal whole star anise plays a key role in the slow cooked dishes that characterize eastern Chinese cuisine. Like anise seeds, star anise gets its distinctive licorice taste from a chemical compound called anethol. However, the two are not related botanically, as star anise is a member of the Magnolia family.
Regal whole star anise is great for use in meat and egg dishes, and can also be simmered in black tea. It's one of the spices in five-spice powder, and is featured in several signature Vietnamese dishes, such as Pho Bo soup. It is also the secret ingredient in many Indian stews and curries.
Regal Herbs and Spices are a smart addition to any kitchen. This handy 7 oz. container is easily accessible for your cooking and seasoning needs. Be sure to check out our quantity discounts for even better wholesale savings!

I had never used star anise before. Needed it for a recipe and just couldn't find it at local stores, so I'm glad webstaurant had it. Great price for the amount.

I make a Pho about once a month and one of the secrets to a good soup is the Star Anise the rich aroma of licorice has to be there. These Regal Brands are fresh and aromatic.

Amazingly Strong Licorice aroma and flavor. I use this in making licorice flavored simple syrup for use in sodas and I absolutely love this. Even just opening the container to get a whiff of that gorgeous licorice essence is divine.

Very affordable, high quality spice. This is difficult to find locally without paying a ridiculous price for it. The containers are very convenient and easy to store.

This star anise comes in a spice container and keeps fresh. This wonder smells great and surely makes food tastes great. It is a lot cheaper than elsewhere.

Lately I have been finding it hard to find the Whole Star Anise. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Webstaurant.com has it in their inventory.

Regal Whole Star Anise is an excellent addition to many exotic spice blends. It can be used whole in a bouquet garni to lend flavor to sauces and beverages as they cook or steep. The anise can also be ground to make a powder, suitable for making your own five-spice powder.

Good quality star anise. This is a great price. You get 7oz. for less money then you would pay for 1oz. if you bought is locally.
