Review of Fenchel

6 of 104 of 53 of 567 of 100

Fennel is an herb that tastes loosely similar to star anise, but not as strong; it reminds me of a blend of star anise and linden flowers. Therefore, folks who like the licorice flavor but not as intense (and with a slight floral veneer) will enjoy this product. While I'm not madly over heels in love with the flavor, it's smooth and tolerable, and a nice tea by which to relax for a spell.

One can obtain it in Austria and Germany (as I did), or in some German food markets stateside, such as German Deli in the DFW Metroplex.

I love fennel, I've never used it in tea though. My parents used to grow it in their garden and we'd use the leaves as a fresh herb, as well as the seeds as a dried herb.

I also like it for the same reason, it has a slight licorice flavor but without being as intense or overwhelming, and being balanced with lighter, fresher aromas. I'd be curious to try it as an herbal tea...unfortunately I think it's totally gone from my parent's garden, but I do see it growing around here and there from time to time, and it's one of those herbs that tends to produce more than most people can consume once it gets established.

I also find it interesting what herbs are used in herbal teas in other countries. This herb seems relatively common as an herbal tea in Germany, but I've never seen it for sale as an herbal tea here in the U.S., even though the seeds are available as a spice and people do use the fresh herb in cooking as well.
