Herb Tasting

Herb tasting is an excellent way for practitioners to learn
about the energetics of the herbs by direct experience. And it's fun!

Single herbs over 20 different Western herbs are tasted during the 12-day training, and systematic records are kept of tastes, temperature effects, and direction of energy.

Herb combinations over 12 different herb combinations are tasted and tested, so that practitioners can feel the effectiveness of these combinations in their own bodies.

These photos were taken at the Academie Qing Bai course on Combining Western Herbs and Chinese Medicine with Jeremy Ross in 2005.
