A beautiful star-shaped spice with a strong and distinct flavour that is warm, sweet, and spicy, Gathering Place Star Anise is similar to licorice, fennel seed, clove, and anise seed. It is commonly used as an ingredient in Chinese 5 spice powder and in Vietnamese Pho. Although the flavour of star anise is generally thought of as sweet, it is commonly used in savoury dishes; it pairs well with citrus, onions, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger and should be used in small quantities.

Welcome to Gathering Place Trading,

Where We Direct Source the Best Organic Star Anise Whole

About Our North India Suppliers

Our direct North Indian suppliers work at the farm level with thousands of small scale farmers who grow organic spices and use sustainable farming practices. Our cumin, coriander, fennel, onion, and garlic come from these small scale farms. This grassroots organic movement is spreading like wildfire in Northern India, resulting in not only better care for the environment, but better quality of life for the farmers too. These suppliers have state-of-the-art processing facilities, which are BRC-certified, the top food safety standard in the world. Their spices are gluten free and Kosher certified.

Planet Over Profit

1% of Every Sale of Organic Star Anise Whole Goes to Nurturing the Environment

While some brands only "give back" from their profits (i.e. money earned after expenses and owners' incomes), we at Gathering Place donate one percent of all our sales to important, grassroots initiatives that directly improve the lives of the people who farm these spices, herbs, and tea.
