ginsengGinseng vs Green tea

The practice of drinking tea is known to have originated from Asian countries, particularly India and China. The four main varieties of tea include black tea, green tea, oolong tea and white tea. Ginseng tea is a herbal variety made from the Ginseng plant. Several types of tea have been claimed to have some sort of curative properties for a wide range of ailments in the human body. Prominent among these is ginseng.

Ginseng is a one of various species of slow-growing plants which include strawberries and many more. It has long, fleshy roots and five leaflets making up its leaf. The interesting resemblance of the ginseng roots to the human body earned it its name, which means ‘likeness of man’ in Chinese. Virtually any part of the plant could be used to make ginseng tea for instance from its roots when powdered or cuttings from any other part, however it is considered very useful when the root is used to make tea. The plant contains a significant amount of the chemical substance called Ginsenosides, particularly in the root. The tea is steeped in boiling water for about five minutes before its ready for drinking. The tea has a bitter taste although it has a sweet taste when sipped at first. Although ginseng has been considered as a cure for a great many diseases, there have not been conclusive studies about its curative properties but nonetheless many people around the world still consume it regularly. It is particularly popular for its stress relieving properties.

Green tea is a tea variety made primarily from the leaves of the Camellia Sinesis plant which have been subjected to minimal oxidation when being processed. Like Ginseng, it is known to have originated from Asia, particularly China and it became associated with many Asian cultures, from Japan to the middle-eastern countries. In countries where green tea is grown, different varieties of the tea have been created and they can greatly differ due to different growing conditions, harvesting and processing. It has a long list of purported health and well being benefits and some studies have been able to determine that regular consumption may actually lower chances of heart disease and prevent or slow down growth of certain cancers. Most of these benefits arise from the strong antioxidants contained in green tea known as polyphenols.
