How is the combination of Anise, Pepper, Cinnamon, Cloves and Fennel better known?

I'm not sure how this question is useful and why you would think that a combination of spices has a name. If the question was the other way around (what is in Chinese Five Spice Powder), it would be more logical in my eyes. – Mien Oct 13 '13 at 18:23

That would be better known as Chinese Five Spice Powder. Do I win the steak knives?

Are you asking about Chinese Five Spice, which sometimes has these ingredients, assuming pepper refers to Szchaun Peppercorn?
