I absolutely loved this. I put the anise in with the milk so that it would be a stronger anise flavor. I crushed the seeds using a mortar and pestle which left some of it ground up. I strained the mixture through a fine sifter but the ground anise came through and was quite delicious. Oh, I drank it hot :)
