9. Yes.

The trick to avoiding bitterness is to understand how to use it in fresh and dried (green) form. Javaman's infusion technique is a good idea. I brew it like an herb tea and use the strained liquid as an extract.

Also, it's important to get a good plant from a reliable source. Mine is from a local Master Gardener who could assure me that it would survive our winter and that the leaves weren't that bitter.

The plant grows very vigorously in one season -- you'll have lots to dry next fall.
