ingredients & lore
blended with green tea, natural ginseng flavor and ginger root
Ginseng was discovered 5,000 years ago in the mountainous region north of China, called Manchuria. It quickly became revered for its strength-giving and rejuvenating powers, becoming a symbol of divine harmony. By the third century China was sending much of its prized silk to Korea in exchange for the wild root. Eventually, the demand for ginseng outstripped all available wild supply, and Korea began a commercial cultivation of ginseng, which continues to this day. Ginseng root is also grown in the US; some sold domestically, but the bulk destined for China.
