Some of the aforementioned teas makeamazingly refreshing, healthy, delicious-tasting and inexpensive drinks that put the traditional'Cuppa' to shame. The following article reviews two Ginseng-based examples of products fallinginto this category. TIEN-CHI (Heaven Energy) GINSENG FLOWER BEVERAGE Tien-chi Ginseng (Panax pseudoginseng) is a particular Ginseng plant variety growing insouthwestern China mainly cultivated in Yunnan and Guangxi Provinces. The root of the Tien-chiplant is used as a health product for regulating blood circulation. The flower functions somewhatdifferently, as a "heat clearing and toxin cleansing" herb, used to reduce inflammation, feverishfeeling, skin eruptions, and sore throats. All parts of the Ginseng plant contain the saponins, known as ginsenosides, that have been shownto be responsible for most of Ginseng's beneficial effects. Additionally, the flowers containflavonoids that contribute to the cooling and detoxifying action. The flowers have a mild, pleasanttaste, and subtle aroma. In China, the flower tea is a favorite summer drink, used to compensatefor the hot weather of the central and southern regions. The flowers are collected in early summerand then extracted and concentrated on to cane sugar to yield an instant tea granule,manufactured by Shenbao Corporation of Guanxi Province. A pleasant cooling beverage is produced when the tea is made with cold water and a remarkablyrefreshing equivalent one when made with hot. Each packet contains 7 grams of Tien-chi Flower extract on 8 grams of cane sugar as a base(each serving contains 40 calories). Typical use is one packet each time, twice per day. A boxcontains 10 packets. (Approx £2-3 from Chinese Supermarket. Also available via the Internet) There is a Kung Fu Maxim which, in effect, asserts: 'Shaolin needs no Ginseng!'. This is true asShaolin Kung Fu practice, in itself, produces and maintains healthy bodies. But for those wishingto learn more about Chinese herbal drinks these two examples provide a good starting point andalso make positive contributions to overall health and fitness. WOORI RED GINSENG TEA The word 'Ginseng' originates from the Chinese term 'Renshen' meaning 'Man Spirit' a termderived from the plant root's uncanny resemblance to a naked human being. It is found inManchuria, Siberia, Korea, the United States and beyond. Red Ginseng is usually 5-6 years old
when it is harvested. The benefits of drinks based upon Red Ginseng are numerous and include the following: It helps build up appetite and aids digestion and respiration. It helps reduce physical and mental stress. It encourages rejuvenation and works against fatigue. Ginseng Tea boosts the immune system and works as an aphrodisiac. It helps counter arthritis, asthma and diabetes. It reduces the risk of cancer and lessens the effects of Crohn's Disease. Ginseng Tea helps reduce bad cholesterol levels. It is effective against headaches and stomach ulcers. It provides a remedy for diarrhoea. It also helps improve blood circulation. It boosts memory and builds stamina. Ginseng Tea protects the liver from the adverse effects of medication. Ginseng tea also alleviates discomfort associated with menstruation. Woori Red Ginseng Tea comes in handy individual sachets and can be drunk 'neat' (just add hotwater) or you can add sugar or honey for a sweeter drink. Approx £4-5 per 100 sachet box fromChinese Supermarkets or via the Internet) Peter Allsop M.Ed., Shaolin Kung Fu and Qigong Teacher in Sheffield U.K. is a Senior Student ofGrandmaster Yap Leong and Area Coach for his HYL (Health, Youth and Longevity) EnergiserQigong Programme.Iron Shirt and Longevity Training, 5 Elements Qigong are amongst the many Chinese Health andFitness strategies that really work.Explore the free resources at http://sheffieldkungfu.com or http://www.hylenergiser.com  Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Peter_Allsop
