Fennel Seed History:


The Fennel seed is a spice with a warm, licorice-like flavor similar to anise seed. This makes the perfect addition to any sweet or savory dishes. The fennel seed is a part of the carrot family. Fennel was prized by the ancient Greeks and the romans who used it as medicine, food and insect repellent. Fennel tea was believed to give courage to the warriors before battle.


How to Make Fennel Tea: 


Over medium heat, bring water to a boil. Then, add the fennel seeds and steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain the mixture into a teapot. Afterward, add the honey. Stir to combine and set aside. Put a slice of orange in a glass and then pour the fennel tea over it. Serve warm and enjoy!
