First of all, where are you.

Secondly, are you looking for ginseng, or a prepared tea mix?

Ahhh....ok

Well, if you are doing a double extraction, I normally boil the marc at least three times.  However, I then mix them all together and reduce them down to the same amount of the alcohol extraction so the proportions are correct.

I would be happy to sell you some ginseng.  However, exporting to Macedonia is a problem.  I"ve exported to Canada for years and it got to the point that it wasn't worth doing for me.

Good luck!

No.  Ginseng does not contain alcohol.  Many of the herbs are used in an extraction.  An extraction can be done with water, or alcohol, or both.  Both would be a double extraction which I described.  When you soak the herb for a month or more  in alcohol, you extract the constituents which are alcohol soluble.  Likewise, in water you only get the water soluble constituents.  But, when you first soak in alcohol and then after draining the alcohol off and boiling in water, you extract both types of constituents

That is not something I know a lot about.  I would hesitate making comment.

Again, I think you need to speak with someone with more specialized knowledge in the use of herbs than me.

The cheapest ginseng out there is cultivated.  Depending on quality, it can be anywhere from $50/lb and up.  But, ginseng is on the CITES II list so the regulations for export and import are ponderous and costly.  So, what I might be able to buy here in bulk for $75 you might end up paying several hundred dollars a pound for there.  I don't know.  Likewise, I don't know of a website or store in Macedonia to which I can refer you.
