Regular size = 18 grams (0.63 ounces), approximately 24 tsp (½ cup), the size of a standard spice jar.

The essential ingredient in most Asian cuisines, and foundation of Chinese Five Spice, this unique spice is not actually related to European anise, but has a similarly licorice-like aroma and sharp sweet-warm flavor. Used in many stir-fry dishes, but also in pickling, baking, curries and stews, as well as soups and sauces, star anise packs a powerful pleasant pungency unlike any other.
