This tea is bitter, but still acceptable because of its medicinal benefits
Good healthy cup of kuding tea.
The first impression was awfully bitter. But it was recommended by my herbalist.
My mom loves chewing this bitter stick, so I guess I would rate 4.5/5
Very bold and some what bitter taste with a smokey overtone. Brew conservatively before testing your tolerance for the taste, but after a few cups it can be quite refreshing. Over infusing can lead to an exceptionally bitter liquor that makes drinking difficult. Ive tried a mixed infusion with Stevia to cut the bitterness and it seems to work well.
I was reading that bitter foods are good to balance the liver..... It apparently removes heat from the liver and that helps with frustration, anger, irritation etc.
It was hard to drink at first but I almost get excited about having a cup now. I do feel a less moody and peaceful too, almost euphofic, after a cup. Im not saying this is the cure all but it did help.
