Excellent Lung tonic. It is also called “monk fruit” and has a delicious sweet flavor. The sweetness is due to a glucoside known as mogroside. May be added to any tea to add a wonderfully sweet, slightly fruity flavor.
Flavor: Ripe fruity sweetness that stretches along the taste buds and settles with a touch of earthy character
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
