Brew with water at 75 to 80 degrees and brew for 2 to 3 minutes, be careful not to over infuse
Red Ginseng Tea (also known as Asian Ginseng, Korean Ginseng and True Ginseng) is a type of Flavoured Green Tea. It should not be confused with either Siberian Ginseng Tea or American Ginseng - both of which we also stock.
This particular infusion has a taste reminiscent of earth, wood and, perhaps unsurprisingly, herbs. Such a fusion of flavour is bound to impress anyone who brews it.
What is Chinese Red Ginseng Tea?
Red Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is a slow-growing perennial plant belonging to the Araliaceae (ivy) family. It is a close relative to American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) and somewhat more distantly related to Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus).
The root of the plant is usually two to three inches long, which is the component used for blending this Flavoured Green Tea.
It has long had a close association with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a holistic healing practice that most famously uses Red Ginseng Tea for erectile dysfunction.
Those who adhere to TCM beliefs also suggest that it supports sexual health in other ways. This is in addition to what we know to be true from a scientific standpoint, which includes its caffeine content.
Red Ginseng Tea Caffeine
Drinking Red Ginseng Tea ensures you get around 30-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup. The reason is the fact that, aside from the herb itself, it includes Sencha Green Tea leaves.
While Green Tea caffeine is less than that of Black Tea, it can still provide an energy boost upon consumption. If you need help getting out of bed in the morning, then, you’ve chosen well here.

Is Red Ginseng Tea Good for Diabetics?
Diabetes is one such condition that the health benefits of Red Ginseng Tea apply to - namely due to its ability to improve glucose tolerance and insulin resistance.
What’s more, the Green Tea leaves alone combat free radicals in the body, thereby slowing oxidative stress. In other words, it works on a molecular level to support those who’re pre-diabetic, as well as those living with type-2 diabetes.
