This annual herb, native to the Mediterranean region, is an ancient spice cultivated by the Egyptians and later by the Greeks and Arabs. The early Arabic name for Anise was "anysum" from which the present day name is derived. In the ninth century, Anise was grown on royal British estates and became of such value that its import was taxed.
Today Anise grows around the world in temperate regions. It is commonly used as a liqueur flavouring, a spice, and a great tea with a slight Licorice taste and aroma.
