If you're interested in learning more about Korean cuisine, you should get acquainted with teas popular in Korea, including ginseng, which you can learn to make with this recipe.
This ginseng tea recipe is zesty, aromatic, and warms you from the inside. If it's cold out, you're not feeling well, or you simply enjoy the sensation of warm liquid in your belly, give ginseng tea a try. Swap out your cup of joe for a cup of the tea and reap the benefits.
"This tea was easy to make, and I had fun using fresh ingredients instead of plopping a tea bag into hot water. Next time I think I'll add more ginseng to get a darker color. A fun idea for any leftovers is making ice cubes and plopping them into iced tea for an added boost." —Carrie Parente
10 slices dried ginseng root, peeled
Honey, to taste
5 cups water
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Coat the ginseng with a generous amount of honey, stir, and let sit for 15 minutes in a glass measuring cup or other large vessel.
In a small pot, heat water over high heat until very hot, but not boiling. Pour very hot (but not boiling) water over the ginseng and honey and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes.
Scoop or strain out the ginseng slices.
- If the taste of ginseng is too overpowering for you, it's common to mix ginseng tea with green tea or ginger tea. Use whatever proportions you like.
