Like other roots and barks, it is best prepared as a decoction, steeping the bark for 20 minutes to a half hour to extract the properties of the herb. Since I can't help but try to make everything taste and smell yummy, this version of Fo-Ti Root Tea has the addition of Wild Cherry Bark, as well as Cinnamon and honey for an even more delicious beverage...
