Anise Tea (Shai Ma Yansoon)

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by chef FIFI

This tea is commonly used in Mid East and Puerto Rico, especially for upset tummies, and it is commonly given to colicky babies. If you like anise try this tea and you will be pleased that it makes a nice light tea.

This is wonderful tea!! It had such a light, sweet and refreshing flavor. I didn't add any sweetener as I found the anise seeds add their own sweetness. I'll be making this often...I first saw you recommend it to Jamilah's kitchen on the Ramadan Tag forum and had to try it. Thanks for sharing chef FIFI. :)
