#2! I am proud to say I recognized it. But I am sad to say I don't have it except in other spice mixes. But I think I will get some now. And what an interesting and in formative post to read! thanks

#2 Finally, I knew immediately. Tea for two soon!

#2 Got this one straight away. It's always in my pantry. Have a good weekend, Lydia!

#2 Love the flavor of this!

#2. I have it. It stars in many Asian recipes

#2, and I have never had this in my pantry, despite loving the flavor.

#2 - such a beautiful flavour and aroma comes from this "pleasure to have in my pantry" ingredient - despite the price of it down here in New Zealand!

I should have guessed it. I do have it in my pantry and I use its name as one of my passwords for a website. I should known it!!! :)

#2, Always have some in my pantry, and thanks for that lovely tea recipe!

Got it! Never have it on hand, but I will have to soon. It's so pretty!

#2, always have it, always use it. Most recently this past Sunday for supper.
