“The recipezaar computer will not allow me to put ginseng in the ingredients, so I slipped it in. Ginseng benefits the mind and body as an energy booster. Ginseng is a long term tonic, not a quick acting one. WARNING: If you have high blood pressure, do not drink this tea! Ginseng is also known to supress pain and improve memory!”
1 quart
