Tastes Like Burning
Voacanaga africana
Citation:   Hempeater. "Tastes Like Burning: An Experience with Voacanaga africana (exp70019)". Jan 4, 2009.

5.0 g oral Voacanga africana (tea)
Made tea from 5 grams of voacanga africana root. I let it steep for an hour. Smells like ginseng, tastes fiery, awful.

1:00 - Finished drinking the tea.

2:30 - Mild stimulant effect, similar to caffeine. Not much else as far as I can tell.

5:00 - Still feel the effect. It's not a bad caffeine substitute if not for the flavour.
