Anise is an annual flowering plant in the family Apiaceae whose seeds have a licorice-like flavor and are used to season teas, baked goods, and liquor. Anise was used in traditional European herbalism to treat flatulence. The plant has groupings of small white flowers and can also be grown as an ornamental.
