What does the taste of an herb tell us about how it will act in the body? We’ll do a tea tasting meditation to explore this question. We’ll also learn herbal terminology and what herbalists call herbal “actions”. You’ll leave this class able to read herbal texts with greater comprehension and able to learn about herbs by interacting with them directly.
