Given that if may contain some bacteria and fungus and whatnot that's why id prefer to do a reduced tincture and then apply that to the tea leaves even spray it on the tea . There are lots of weird things in it that are not soluble that id want to remove , water just wont cut it in my opinion, im sure there are ways im not familiar with . The resinoid though I have consumed in chocolate and also I put it on a spoon and every time you take a bit you taste your food or tea or desert with the ambergris . Quite lovely with a vanilla sorbet . or a creme brulee .
