Star Anise Tea
If you’re looking to make a comforting hot beverage, I highly recommend star anise tea. A simple drink with subtle flavors of star anise and cinnamon, perfect for cold winter evenings or holiday gatherings.
Bring the water to a boil, either using an electric kettle, or in a pot on the stove top.
Pour the water into a suitable container, like a tea pot, mixing bowl or measuring cup.
Add the tea bags, cinnamon sticks, star anise and optionally honey to the boiled water.
Stir the tea, and leave it to steep for about 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags, add any extra sweetener if you want, then serve!
- Use black or green tea bags, whichever is your preference.
- The star anise and cinnamon stick should not be substituted with ground spices.
- I like to leave the star anise and cinnamon sticks in the tea pot or cups when I serve them, as they look really nice. You can remove them if you prefer.
- The tea can be stored in a tea pot or other jug. Certain tea pots are better at keeping the beverage warm than others, but most should be able to keep the drink hot for at least a few hours.
