Star Anise Tea
If you are a tea lover and adore that aniseed taste then you will love this tea.
In this fabulous tea, I have combined ordinary black tea with star anise. Star anise has some surprising benfits, apart from being a great breath freshener, it also stimulates the appetite and calms the growling tiger in the tummy, so both a stimulant and sedative at the same time.
How to make this tea
- 1 tea bag or your favourite tea leaves
- 1 whole star anise
- sweetener if you fancy
- milk (optional)
Put the tea & star anise in to a cup, pour in freshly boiled water. Make sure that the water has not been a re-boil, it always tastes better this way. Leave the tea in to taste, I literally dunk it. Add sweetener if you wish, I didn’t with this tea. I let the star anise stay in the tea whilst I drink it. I found I could re-use the star anise again.
Please let me know how you found this tea if you decide to try it 🙂
Archie my little black pug puppy has been promoted to official taster tester, however, this time he decided to opt out, but woofed that it smelt absolutely fabulous!
