During ancient times, Ginseng root was so revered as a cure-all that traditional physicians prescribed it for everything from easing pulmonary difficulties to eradicating fatigue. The root was known as Jin-chen which means “like a man” in reference to its resemblance of the human form and because it had the power to restore and revive the human body. Ginseng was so highly prized that for a time only the Emperor had the legal right to collect the spicy roots. So, when the Tea Masters of old went looking for fresh ingredients to enhance the character and beauty of their creations, many turned to the trusted and hallowed root.
