Is Japanese knotweed just as or similarly effective when simmered as a tea? I guess I would use the "cut and sifted" knotweed.

Thanks.

Japanese knotweed has a Chinese name, so I assume it's used in TCM, too. They often simmer things in tea. I wonder if someone with a TCM background or a TCM website would have this info.
