Hi, my name is Joey Papa. I'm a coffee consultant, and today we're going to talk about how to make ginseng tea. Ginseng is an extremely popular herb, that is either served in a capsule or sometimes even added to food, but it's very popular to be served as a tea beverage as well. Now because it's an herbal tea, we're going to want to make sure that we get our water to the boiling point so that it extracts the herb appropriately throughout the beverage. So let's get started. First you're going to want to take your tea kettle and fill it up with some cold water. You can either use water from the tap or you can use bottled water, whichever you prefer. Then you're going to take your tea kettle and put it on your stove. Turn your stove on high and wait until the water comes to a complete boil. Once it comes to a boil, you can then remove it from your stove. Remember, having the water to the boiling point is essential in order for the heat from the water to extract the herbs benefits into the liquid. So once we have that, we're going to take our teabag, and we're going to open it up, place it in our cup here, and then we're going to add the boiling water to the teabag, pouring right over the teabag, making sure it's submerses underneath the water. We're going to want to leave some room at the top, because remember, this is boiling water. So we're not going to want to burn ourselves while we're pouring it in there. You can give the teabag a few bobs, just to help blend the water in with the teabag. And then we're going to let it sit there for about two to four minutes, which is also called steeping. Once you've allowed the teabag to steep in the hot boiling water for about two to four minute, we're then going to give it one last bob, and we're going to remove it with our tea spoon. You can squeeze out any excess liquid that's left in the teabag, you can discard that teabag. Now ginseng tea is great to drink just as is, especially if you're just looking for a very earthy and herbal-tasting tea. But if you prefer it to be a little sweeter, you can add some honey or some sugar, around 1 teaspoon is my recommendation. Again, my name is Joey Papa. I'm a coffee consultant, and today we learned how to make ginseng tea.
