As some of you already know, Im a huge fan of Korean Food, I love eating it and cooking it, and KoreaTaste started their blogging contest on february, which was entered by default since I was already a member of the site, this only encourage me to blog more about food!
Last month the winners were announced and I got 3rd place YAY!, and also got selected as a winner for being a new member, 2 weeks ago I received an email regarding my gift being sent and this Thursday I got a huge package on the mail!
The package had a Thank you letter from KoreaTaste, a Box of Seaweed 5 packages, 1 Box of Korean Red Ginseng Tea it contains like 100 teabags and a bottle of Korean Red Ginseng extract, of course I didnt know how to use this, so I asked some friends and checked some videos online to know more about it.
First, the Teabags, the ginseng comes in some sort of powder, theres no need of a Teabag or a Tea-spoon is that how its called? lol, you just pour it in warm water and thats it, I thought it was going to taste bad I read about the bad taste somewhere, but no, the taste is a little bit sweet and its very refreshing, anyway, I found out that Korean Ginseng is good to lower high blood pressure, helps Boost the immune system, helps treat Diabetes Mellitus and helps developing Brain efficency and also it has some effect on the eyes… I read you have to take about 600ml a day 2-3 cups and after 2 weeks you have to take another week off of the tea, its not recommended to drink it at night because it can cause insomnia, and I already have enough insomnia to add this to it :P. I just started taking it this weekend, so, lets see how it helps in the next couple of weeks!
