Anise Blossom is an orange-yellow flower with a mild anise flavour. It combines very well with canapés, desserts and is a wonderful ingredient in cocktails. 
Origin
The plant is native to Mexico and Central America and has been in use since Aztec times, both for religious and medical purposes. It is eaten as an herb and is commonly used as a substitute for tarragon. The leaves have a tarragon-like flavor, with hints of anise.

The dried leaves and flowering tops are steeped in hot water to make tea that is a popular drink in Latin America.
