I recently purchased some of the Lotus ecstasy tea from Meridian botanicals I tried to make a tea out of it per the directions but could not drink it due to the bitter tertible taste. is there any other way to prepare it like powder and capsule it or make a tincture out of it? Please help I do not want to waste this package.

Hi Tonia,

Lotus Ecstasy is indeed quite bitter, this is due to the nature of Blue lotus itself, an extremely bitter herb.  The tea blend you mention can be made more palatable by #1, increasing the ratio of water to herbs, #2, simmering or steeping instead of boiling, and #3, by the addition of stevia, fruit juice, honey, or sugar.  I find the tea is not too bad when prepared right, but it may take a trial or two to hit the sweet spot.
