Ginseng Tea Recipe
The addition of salt is optional. I find that a small pinch of salt draws out the favour of the ginseng.
- 30g American Ginseng “fibers” or “beards” (洋参须)
- 1.5 litres of water
- a pinch of salt
- Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add ginseng and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Season with salt. Sieve the tea using a strainer and serve the drink at room temperature or chilled.
Noob Cook Tip
If you do not want to use a strainer, you can put the ginseng in disposable soup pouches and discard the entire pouch after simmering.
