Rooted in the traditions of ancient Chinese philosophy, our interpretation of Chinese Five-Spice is inspired by the urge to seek a balance between extremes, working to reach a harmonious whole. This blend is built around the sweetness of Anise and Cinnamon, while Fennel and Clove provide a soft bitterness, and Peppercorn incorporates a round earthiness. Mixed together, this blend showcases profound flavor depth, striking a capable balance of sweet, bitter, and earthy tastes. We enjoy this blend best in meat and vegetable dishes, however, it also possesses the ability to deliver delicious results in a variety of baking applications.
Starting with a base of sourced Star Anise pods and Saigon Cinnamon bark, we gently toast these spices. Then we take Fennel seed, Clove buds, and Malaysian White Peppercorns, and freshly grind them together to create a harmonious blend with distinctive sweet notes and a seductive hint of licorice.
INGREDIENTS: Handcrafted from Star Anise, Saigon Cinnamon, Fennel, Malaysian White Peppercorn, and Clove.
