Ginseng Energy Tea

A daily dose of ginseng is 3 to 9 grams, brewed in tea. Divide this recipe into seven and you’ll get 4 grams a day. Keep in mind that ginseng is a long-term tonic, not a quick-acting remedy. Ginseng’s main benefit is as a mind/body energy booster. Ginseng may also suppress pain and improve memory. NOTE: If you have high blood pressure, don’t use Ginseng Energy Tea.

1 ounce whole dried ginseng root
1/3 ounce whole licorice root
1/3 ounce fresh ginger root, cut into quarter-size pieces, plus extra

In a large pot, add ginseng to a half gallon of water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for an hour or more, until reduced by half. Add licorice and ginger; simmer another half hour. Strain; refrigerate in a tightly covered container.

Each day, warm a half cup with another “quarter” of fresh ginger (add water to taste).
