Australians love using homegrown products and when it comes to digestive aids, aniseed myrtle tea is at the top of the list.
With a flavour that ranks as one of the most delicious, aniseed myrtle tea is becoming the popular go-to drink for relief of indigestion and other stomach complaints. And smoother digestion means food passes through faster, preventing it from being stored as fat.
With the Indigenous Australians using it for thousands of years and current research confirming its benefits, aniseed myrtle is destined to be around for decades to come.
The name of this herb gives away its flavour. It has a subtle liquorice-aniseed flavour with undertones of eucalypt that will transport you immediately to a beautiful southern forest. It’s not as sweet as liquorice, but you will taste the mild aniseed flavour that cools the palate.
- Aniseed Myrtle (Syzygium anisatum)
Aniseed myrtle contains a bio-compound called anethole, which gives this herb its aniseed flavour. Anethole is semi-soluble, which means it moves through the digestive tract slowly, making you feel full for longer. It also helps maintain regular bowel motions.
It’s anti-inflammatory properties help prevent cramps, indigestion and acid reflux. And as inflammation has been linked to obesity, by keeping your digestive tract inflammation-free, aniseed myrtle is helping to keep the weight off.
1-3 cups of aniseed myrtle tea a day taken following meals, after your dinner has settled, is ideal.
This tea is just as delicious cold as it is hot, and you can also use it as a flavouring for desserts, sauces, ice cream and cakes.
- You can drink this tea if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

I'd never heard of this tea, or even the herb, before and bought it on a whim. I'm glad I did. It's absolutely delicious. But then again, I'm a big fan of liquorice. Perhaps too big, sometimes. I find it quite a cleansing tea
My husband's grandmother grew up in rural New South Wales and made her own tea out of the crushed leaves of the aniseed myrtle. She swore by it and drank it every day, and lived to 101
I thought I would try this tea for weight loss. Why not, right? I've been on it a month and have lost 1.5 kilos. Not a lot, but better than nothing. And the tea is very tasty
