The mix can vary by both content and proportion--star anise, cinnamon, pepper, cloves, some other stuff like anise or fennel or cassia, There are a lot of pre-mixed ones on the market, so if you're uncertain, you can buy one.

Mine is from Penzey's. Here's the mixture from their website: China cassia cinnamon, star anise, anise seed, ginger and cloves. I don't know the proportions.
