5 spice powder,legend has it that the chinese were attempting to create a ‘wonder powder’ encompassing the five elements! and a perfect blend of five spices adds an irresistible flavor to this cuisine. This powder is bitter-sweet-pungent-sour and salty all at once. Fennel, cinnamon, star anise, peppercorns and cloves are slow roasted until they release their aroma and grounded into a fine powder. You can store this in an air-tight container.
