Suggested dose: 1 bag over 2-4 days. The above dosage is doubled from the original source.
Note: The original dosage of Chai Hu (Bupleuri Radix) in Da Chai Hu Tang (Major Bupleurum Decoction) in the Shang Han Lun is a half a jin. There is debate on how much this really is, but many believe it to be around 24g a day. Therefore the 48g option may be closer to the original.
