Star anise or Illicium verum in Latin is an exotic aromatic plant from Asia.
The star anise is part of the Illiciaceae family.
Its fruit is called star anise because it has a star shape with an anise scent.
Its flowers are white with a yellow center.
The leaves are thick and resemble those of the frangipani.

It is a spice whose aroma is more powerful than green anise.
This spice is part of the composition of the five-spice powder mixture.
It is used in Europe, particularly in the manufacture of pastis but also in gourmet cooking.

In pastries, it flavors traditional cakes and pancakes from the west of France.

In traditional medicine, it has many therapeutic properties.
