Taiwanese "Imperial Spice"

chocolatSF | Nov 3, 200301:36 PM     2

A friend of mine brought me a packet of "Imperial Spice" from her recent trip to Taiwan. The spice comes in small teabags and is a mixture of (according to the only English information on the packet) anise, cumin, clove, cinnamon. Has anyone used these spices before ? Do you brew a "tea" and then use that like stock for sauces, soups, etc. Or do you put a teabag in with rice or vegetables while they steam ? Any tricks of the trade would be great, otherwise, I'll just have to get creative ! Thanks !
