Below we've listed the herbs we are working with from most sweet to most bitter. We did a taste test with 1/2 gram of each herb steeped in 8 ounces of boiling water for 3 minutes. Flavor is very subjective and hard to describe, that said, below is how we ranked our herbs. We find herbal bitterness to be more subtle and cleaner than hop bitterness.
