drank Catuaba by Infussion
1196 tasting notes

AHHHH I GOT A C IN HEALTH ECONOMICS SO I DON’T NEED TO RETAKE IT. I’m pretty sure I did worse than that but I guess he realized he was terrible so everyone deserves a C. (C- = retake. BLEH)

Anyway I had this last night because I wanted to see if it would make me sleepy. I cannot tell you about the “aphrodisiac uses” but I will tell you about the 1 tbsp in 12 oz of water method of gettin’ sleepy.

It works quickly! It tastes terrible though, at least to me. Very effective, but has the flavor of cedar chips.

I’m not sure if this would taste very good if you tried to sweeten it but ugh, it made me tired but the taste was not worth it. I think I’ll try mixing it with the Schisandra berries I got just to get rid of that bitterness/woodsy flavor. I mean, it is bark so obviously there’s no way to get rid of that.

But it’s definitely a cool herbal tea, especially for falling asleep. And you feel warm and fuzzy first. If chamomile fails you, catuaba is here to back you up.

That is too weird. I just got on steepster to look up the infusion times for the catuaba and since I was only going to use a bit, I was thinking of mixing the Schisandra berries with it! Apparently the catuaba will wake me up with 1-3 grams but will make me sleepy with more of it? That’s odd.

Crazy. I wouldn’t expect the same tea to work as an aphrodisiac and a sleep aide.

This one is weird I’ve been trying it as well.
