Ginseng Root

Ginseng root has long been prized in Asia for its medicinal properties.

Ginseng is a brownish-yellow root which often has off-shooting roots that are said to resemble human appendages. Those ginseng with human shape, roots that resemble arms and legs, are the most prized and fetch the highest prices. Ginseng is used to make teas and is also sold in tonics.
