What bracha is made on anise seed aroma? Also, what bracha is made on raw mint leaves? If mint or peppermint tea has an aroma, whats the bracha?

Answer:

Anise, mint, and peppermint are all herbs, and the bracha upon smelling them is borei isvei besamim.

Note that one only makes a berachah upon smelling tea with the intention of enjoying its scent. If one takes the tea to drink it, and only smells the scent inadvertently, one would not make a blessing.
