Anise is a member of the parsley family and is related to caraway, cumin, dill, and fennel. It is known as anise seed or aniseed. Anise seeds possess a sweet, licorice-like aroma while the taste is a bit fruity and warm.
Although they sound like they would be closely related star anise and anise are not. Both do have a similar licorice taste with star anise being a bit stronger. Star anise is also slightly more bitter than regular anise seed.
