When I first started taking bee pollen and ginseng in my late teens, I was quite happy with the energy it gave me as well as the necessary nutrients I needed as well.
He had a master’s degree in herbal medicine and had personally trained with the legendary naturopathic doctor and master herbalist Dr. John R. Christopher.
I listened to him whenever I could and his advice was always enlightening and useful. (By the way, you can read more articles regarding bee pollen on this site here.)
Ginseng & Bee Pollen: An Unbeatable Combination
One day, during a lull in customers coming into the store, he regaled me regarding the wonders of ginseng. I asked him, “What if I combined ginseng tea with some bee pollen granules and maybe some honey for taste?”
I thought of the honey as a masking agent for the bee pollen granules have a very distinctive chalky taste I don’t particularly like.
I’m glad I took it in the morning because for the entire day I had an avalanche of energy and I mean an avalanche! I went water skiing, played basketball, practiced some archery, and then played multiple sets of tennis and went to a dance later that night!
It was like a “drug” only there was nothing illegal or unethical about it. And, there were no side effects — unless you consider a lot of energy a problem.
Through the years, I’ve never had that experience of such overflowing energy since, but I still experience a tangible uptake in energy. Since then, I’ve learned also that there are a lot of studies regarding it, too.
Bee Pollen, Ginseng, & Honey Drink
This drink is simple to make. Here’s the recipe.
- One packet of ginseng tea
- One goodly sized teaspoon or tablespoon of bee pollen granules
- One helping teaspoon of bee’s honey
- One large coffee or tea cup
- Boiling water (distilled or purified water is what I always use; don’t use tap water)
The tea should be boiled and after the water is poured into the tea cup, the ginseng tea should be added, then the honey and bee pollen granules. Mix and sip. The water should be the highest quality water you have available, of course.

Regarding the ginseng tea, there is something I need to mention to you. Ginseng quality is marked by low quality and high quality. You can spend upwards over $100 for actual ginseng.
Ginseng teas can be expensive but most are very affordable — like in the $10 to $11 USD range. Such as this one here. Or, you can click on the Korean ginseng tea graphic as well and the link will take you to it where you can check it out.
I actually enjoy drinking it just for taste and have been drinking it for years.

I lived in Korea for a few years while in my late teens and early twenties. I saw many ginseng fields (in Korean, ginseng is called “een-sam”). Typically the Korean ginseng is of a high quality and is popular the world over.
