Do you just put the herb in the tea I’ve crushed some is there any other way to prepare it?
Thanks for your question!
Generally you just need to use the crushed or sliced roots of the herb to prepare the tea. Simmer the roots in water for at least 20 minutes to extract more of the active compounds from the tea. And make sure you are using prepared roots as opposed to the raw roots which can have negative effects.
Is there a specific amount of root you would recommend for the tea?
