Chinese Herbs?

Technically, hops can be considered a herb of some sort.

Is anyone game to give their beers a dose of chinese herbs? Luo Han Guo, Chrysanthemum (or any other flowers), etc etc.

Yes. I have tried a "special type" of Chinese tea. And the brewmaster from Archipelago (Fal Allen) likes it.

I've tried Fenugreek on an IPA once. Dump the whole thing down the toilet bowl. After that, I decided to stick to getting traditional styles right before trying anything else.

It takes a bit of experiementation to get the right amount cos for a good tasting beer or food for that matter, it is all about balance.
