Released by Gangsan Farm, Sanyacho Tea is a healthy beverage fitting well with today’s trend of healthy lifestyles, unlike many instant beverages, such as cola, which contain caffeine and artificial sweeteners.
It is a genuinely organic food that is fermented according to a traditional method and ripened in a pottery by using Sanyacho, wild grass growing in a mountain and the field.
About 50 different kinds of herbs are collected from the mountains, fields, and the sea and fermented in pottery for three to six years. As the herbs are freshly collected in season, the Sanyacho is rich in quality enzymes.
To ensure higher integrity, the products are fermented in their individual potteries and they go through natural fermentation without any artificial additives except for sugar and oligosccharides.
The fermented botanical tea has various benefits; it helps eliminate bodily waste and toxins from the body while boosting the working of one’s intestines and cleansing the bowels. In addition, as a good source of enzymes, it is helpful for dieting, a matter of concern for many women.
Not surprisingly, people of all ages can enjoy drinking it simply by adding some water. The undiluted solution Sanyacho is diluted to 5 to 7 times of water to be consumed as a tea, beverage, or a substitution of a meal.
It is also recommended that Sanyacho be taken with Saengsik or Seonsik (uncooked food). People may freely adjust the amount of water used in dilution according to their taste.
For salad dressing, you just need to blend olive oil 30ml, Sanyacho 30ml, vinegar 10ml and lemon juice. Or Sanyacho can also be used in seasoning the meat, vegetables, or making sauces.
Since Gangsan Farm started its study on fermented health drinks using the home-grown agricultural produce, herbs and edible plants as the main ingredients in 1986, the company has produced Sanyacho Tea, Songhwa (flowers of the pine) Tea, Hongmaesil (red Japanese apricot) Tea using ingredients obtained out of unpolluted Korean mountains and fields.
Afterwards, it expands its product lines to Sangsik (uncooked food), Codonopsis lancelata extracts and other health-promoting products. In 1999, the company introduced modernized massproduction facilities to produce its main products in larger quantities.
