What Does Ginkgo Biloba Taste Like?

Though Buddha Teas Ginkgo Biloba Tea’s flavor profile may not absolutely wow you, it does hold its own, offering a slightly bitter, yet extremely nourishing taste.

How to Make Ginkgo Biloba Tea

A good boil is recommended, and a steep of 3-5 minutes. To create a more balanced, flavorful cup of tea, try adding a bag of one of your favorite Buddha Teas. We like our Ginkgo Biloba Tea mixed with Anise Seed Tea, or Blackberry Leaf Tea. Our Chamomile Flower Tea, is another great addition to try.

Precautions

Because there is some controversy regarding side effects related to high doses of ginkgo, if you are pregnant or under a doctor’s care for high blood pressure or a blood disorder, you might want to avoid drinking this tea.
