A tincture/tea made with star anise and hot water separate from the beer is what I would choose to do.  Calibrate/choose the right amount of tea in a fix volume of finish beer and then scale to the whole batch from that.  More work but allows you to not overdo it.

Star of Anise is really really easy to overdue in beer.
