Measure two to three grams of chopped ginseng root per cup of tea. This equals about five to eight thin slices of ginseng root or about one teaspoon of ginseng powder.

 

Add the ginseng and any other ingredients to a cup. You may wish to add other teas or herbs like ginger or lemon for flavour.

 

Pour hot, but not boiling, water over the ginseng and allow it to steep for five minutes. You may allow it to steep for longer if you want a bolder flavour. Sometime people use a thermos to stew the tea to keep it hot and strong .The ginseng root will get soft and may be eaten if desired.
