After purchasing the raw Ginseng root you have two options. You may either make a medicinal wine, which is the preferred method for many Ginseng connoisseurs, or a decoction. Detailed instructions for making medicinal wine may be found by clicking on methods of preparation. For those of you who prefer decocting their Ginseng, we strongly recommend you consider using what is known as a “Ginseng cooker.”
Ginseng cookers are a way of preparing Ginseng tea that conserves the subtle properties of the root. This traditional method involves the use of a double boiler, which is known to produce a more robust, full- bodied and potent brew. When Ginseng is prepared in this manner, many of the essential nutrients of the Ginseng, which normally dissipate in steam, are preserved. An added benefit of this method is that because the tea remains below the boiling point, photo-nutrients are retained that would otherwise be lost by boiling.
