What does Ginseng do to one’s metabolism? Are there long-term risks associated with taking Ginseng tea daily?

Ginseng does not change your metabolism. The only long-term risk I’ve seen associated with taking ginseng in any form is that excessive use can increase blood pressure.

I would suggest you check out The Herbalist or Chinese Medicine and Pharmacology CD-ROM’s for extensive information on ginseng. The National Institute of Health is studying non-traditional medicine including herbal remedies.
