Aniseed Tea Recipe

I made this aniseed tea as I liked the taste of aniseed. Using one tea bag did end up watering it down so this recipe I have modified to include two, to make sure it stays healthy and sugar-free there is no sugar and sugar is replaced with erythritol.

Aniseed Tea Recipe


  • 2 drawstring teabags (large)
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 tbsp xylitol
  • enough aniseed to fill the two tea bags


1 - Add aniseed to almost fully fill the two tea bags then draw them tightly so that it will not spill out.

2 - Place the tea bags into the pot and the water into the pot then stir until the water is darker.

2 - Add the xylitol and heat until boil (approximately 5 to 10 minutes) and stir. Leave until cooled to let steep.

3 - Strain the liquid into a separate jar then remove the tea bags. Reheat if serving hot.

4 - Serve either hot or cold!
