June 13, 2020
Warning, this warming tea is perfect for chilly nights, running races and leaping tall buildings. Ginseng is said to have many anti-aging benefits, from improving heart health to increasing endurance, relieving fatigue and enhancing immunity. Ginseng definitely tastes ‘of the earth,’ but with the overtones of ginger and lemon, this elixir has a nice zesty flavour to it PLUS the benefits of ginseng are worth every single last solitary sip!! See you at the race!
- Prep: 15 mins
- Yields: 4 Cups
Simmer ¼ cup of mixture with 4 cups of water in a covered pan for 15 minutes 15 Minutes, but do not boil.
*Important Note: Wild American ginseng is in danger of extinction - unfortunately it is Canada’s ivory or rhino horn. It grows in southern Ontario and western Quebec all the way down to Georgia and Louisiana in the United States. French settlers started exporting it to China 300 years ago, and at one point, it was New France's biggest export after fur. Planted, harvested American Ginseng root is definitely not in any danger, just the wild Ginseng.
