What is the best way to ingest chinese herbs?

Question by Aryeh: What is the best way to ingest chinese herbs?
I received a bottle of grounded chinese herbs and I am wondering how I’m supposed to ingest them. Just put them in water or heat the water and let them dissolve. I have no clue.

I just mix mine in room-temp, filtered water. And have a glass of plain water handy, because they generally are bitter.

  1. Boil the herbs and water in a non-metal pot for about 20-30 minutes. If you need to strain it, make sure you use a non-metal strainer too. Fair warning, most Chinese herbs taste extremely yucky but it works!
