Anise

Anice is the sweet seeds of a flowering herb.  It bears a strong family resemblance to the members of the carrot family, that includes dill, fennel, coriander, cumin and caraway with its fine feathery leaves. Many of these relatives have been described as having a licorice flavour, to some extent, but anise is the true taste of licorice— its oils are distilled into the flavouring for licorice candy (not from the herb licorice, which has a different taste).
Chamomile

Chamomile

Chamomile is known for the medicinal purposes it can provide!  The tea has a somewhat apple flavor. The flowerheads are what is used for medicinal purposes.
Cloves

Cloves

The word ‘clove’ is from the Latin word for ‘nail’. Cloves are the immature unopened flower buds of a tropical tree; they resemble small nails, with a tapered stem. The large end of the clove is the four-pointed flower bud.  It has a warm, pungent, and aromatic bouquet. Its flavour is sweetly pungent, astringent, and strongly aromatic, providing a anesthetic feel to the mouth when bitten on.
