One of Asia's most revered tonic herbs, Panax ginseng has been used for over 3000 years and has, at times, been more prized than gold. Its reputation was so great that it was reserved solely for the use of the Emperor and his house-hold. He would sometimes confer Ginseng upon those who had earned his particular favor. Panax Ginseng is a perennial plant that is also known as Korean Ginseng. Panax derives its name from the Greek word "panacea" meaning all healing. The species name, ginseng, is Chinese for "man plant", in reference to the shape of the root. The roots most resembling the human form are the most in demand. Ginseng is perhaps the most widely recognized plant used in traditional health care.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance the flavor.
Add honey to sweeten.
