If you are a herbal tea lover, you must try the Asian (Korean, Chinese, far-eastern Siberia) DIY Ginseng herbal tea. As per the science research, Asian ginseng could prevent inflammation and increase antioxidant capacity in cells which promote skin cell grow. It could also improve brain functions like memory, concentration and improve mood.
Ginseng tea is a delicious drink. The consumption of Korean red ginseng tea can reduce the signs of premature aging. This tea is a rich source of antioxidants that can halt free radical formation caused by overexposure to the sun. Free radicals are responsible for the early signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
Because of the proven health benefits, I have added this Ginseng herbal tea in my diet routine. I like ginseng because of its strong, distinctly bitter flavor. I sweeten the tea by adding honey for my family.
Before you follow the menu below, doctors recommend that short-term oral use (up to 6 months) of Asian ginseng in recommended amounts appears to be safe for most people. Also, there may be side effects to some people including nervousness, and change in blood pressure.
Fresh Korean ginseng (5 g)
Honey (2 teaspoons)
To make one cup of Ginseng Herbal Tea:
- Wash the ginseng to clean all the dirts
- Boil water
- Add ginseng in the hot water and continue to boil for 5 mins
- Add honey to serve.
Tips: I add another cup of water and reboil the ginseng for 2 to 3 times for full taste.
