The main complaint from anyone who has ever had Chinese herbal medicine (in broth form) is the evident atrocious taste.  This is especially common among people in the West, where few people have ever experienced Chinese herbal medicine.  People in the Wes have been accustomed o ARTIFICIALLY FLAVORED grape cough syrups, cherry sore throat sprays, bubble gum antibiotics, and so on. The point is, these modern medicines don’t really taste like candy unless flavoring agents make them that way.  When patients receive Chinese herbal medicines no attempt has been made to try to hide behind artificial agents to make the medicines taste better.  If one considers Chinese herbal medicine to be unpalatable, then one should try taking dextreomethorphan (conventional cough syrup), phenol (in sore throat sprays), and amoxicillin (an antibiotic) WITHOUT artificial flavoring agents!
Modern medicines in pill form are Chemical (i.e., toxic) drugs with extremely powerful effects.  That’s why every drug is in a very small pill form.  Just a minute amount is enough to last for hours.  If one also took these chemical drugs in LIQUID form, one may not think Chinese herbal medicines is that bad.
There are a few ways to take the herbal broth.  One way is to inhale a couple times, hold the breath, and try to drink the entire cup of medicine all at once.  Immediately RINSE the mouth out with water and take a teaspoon of honey or orange marmalade.  Another way is to use a straw, the kind that can bend at an angle and place it towards the back of the mouth.  These are only two ways; you can experiment with ways that will work for you.  Medicine that is taken in its pure form without artificial flavors is the most potent.
