Kuding is a herbal tea produced in China’s south-east regions. Its very name suggests that it tastes bitter, but that fact hasn’t stopped millions of people around the world from drinking it on regular basis. Kuding is quite an adventure tastewise. When you take the first sip, bitterness will hit the tip of your tongue and then envelop the rest of your mouth gradually transforming into a much less invasive taste characteristic of some blanched vegetables and nettle. As you swallow the beverage, a subtle mellow taste will kick in, creating a balanced bittersweet harmony that tends to linger in the mouth for a few minutes.
