In it, we talk about:

  • How I formulate herbal remedies through taste
  • Distinguishing different tastes that can feel similar in the mouth and are often confused with each other
  • What it means if you're really craving (or have an aversion to) a particular taste
  • And plenty of other nuanced herbal details!
