I did with peppermint leaves and stems to make decoction.

Prediction: Taste: Too bitter
Color: Dark brown
Aroma: Evaporate (gone)

Result: Taste: A bit stronger but not bitter at all
Color: Dark yellow green to brown
Aroma: Evaporate (gone)
Others: Menthol feeling like cooling lasts long

I didn’t imagine that I would keep feeling menthol in my mouth for such a long time!
It has been keeping for about 30 minutes in my mouth even I just took a sip.
It proves how powerful the decoction is. Fun experiment!
