I just bought several bottles of Canadian ginseng slices and other than munching on them (sparingly – don’t overdose) as a snack, I also use them to make a herbal cooling tea (” liang teh” or 凉茶) to combat our hot weather. Ginseng is well known for improving mental alertness (提神) and “cooling” properties in TCM. I ate the boiled ginseng slices that comes in the drink so not one bit of it is wasted. If you don’t like ginseng, check out chrysanthemum tea recipe which is another cooling Chinese tea.

  1. So, 花旗蔘 is also called Canadian ginseng? I did not know that.

  2. Oh you’re right about it being more sunny recently! This is such a perfect cuppa for an afternoon :) I love how the chrysanthemums floated in the bowl~ Whimsical and dainty :)

  3. How I wish I had these ingredients handy. I must investigate where in New York I can find a store that provides some of these ingredients/teas/berries

  4. A perfect drink for the super hot days. Nicely chilled and slightly sweetened. Yum :)

  5. This is a perfect drink for the hot weather now. I think I’m going to make this tomorrow for my family. Thanks for reminding.

  6. Looks like a nice tonic drink for our bodies.

  7. I need to drink this nutritious tea now especially the ginseng. Feel so lethargic nowadays. :(

  8. I don’t know that there is a Canadian ginseng. What is the difference?

  9. I like how u remind me that simple drinks can be prepared at home. The weather must be weird all around..because it was 35C earlier in the week, and then 21C now! This tea will be perfect.

    • Actually, I think 花旗参refers to American ginseng. 花旗was how the Chinese refer to US in the past. I would love to try this especially the weather lately has been scorching hot and humid. Love the addition of wolf berries to it!

  10. Very healthy and refreshing! Reminds me of my grandmother who passed away last year and whom I miss.
