Listed in the above book they are creating a decoction made of: Rhizome Polygoni Cuspidati 100g, Radix Aucklandiae 25g, Fructus Aurantii 25g, Radix et Rhizoma Rhei 25 g, Herba Lysimachiae 100 g, Fructus Gardeniae 20 g, Rhizoma Cory dalis 25 g

At first, I tried swallowing all 320 g of herbs, that did not end well.

I ordered them as grounded up. Can I still make a decoction and just filter the herbs through a coffee filter? How much water should I use? Do I just put it in a pot and let it simmer for 15-20mins?

Where did you get this herbal combination, and what is the purpose for it?
It is always not a good idea to take Chinese herbs without professional advice.
You should seek a Chinese herbalist and ask if it is proper for you.
