The classic Sichuan-style Chinese Five Spice Powder is a careful blend of five primary fragrances (wu xiang 五香), that when combined, form a perfect balance of flavors.
Our Sichuan-style Chinese Five Spice Powder begins with the earthy, spicy, citrusy flavor of Sichuan peppercorns, blended with the refreshingly licorice-like star anise and fennel seeds. But unlike versions commonly found in the US, we slowly add in the star anise and fennel as not to overpower the blend with the aroma of licorice. Then we mix in the rich, warming, sweet flavors of clove and cinnamon until the five fragrances harmonize into one.
Try our Sichuan-style Chinese Five Spice Powder – or our special Penang-style version – on roast meats, crispy spring rolls, pork chops, stir fries, tofu dishes, and even sloppy joes.
