kind classics: new year’s hangover tea

New Year’s Day can be less of a holiday and more of a hangover day for a lot of people. So in honor of NYE recovery day, I’m sharing my Cure All Tea recipe from my book (p. 290).

Cure All Tea

Ingredients

  • 1 kukicha tea bag (if you’re using loose-leaf tea, follow the package instructions)
  • 1/4-1/2 umeboshi plum, pit removed and chopped very fine
  • 3-5 drops shoyu

Steps

  1. Steep the tea in 1 cup of boiling water
  2. While the tea steeps, place the umeboshi plum into a teacup with the shoyu
  3. Pour the hot tea over the umeboshi plum in the teacup and stir well
  4. Drink hot
  5. The umeboshi pit is also good to suck on if you want

Also, remember when you have a hangover, you might think you want a bunch of heavy junk the next day – but the cleaner you eat, the better you will feel quickly. Green juice, brown rice, or steamed greens like kale are great hangover foods. But in my ancient party days, I noticed a huge difference between a veggie burger and fries and cakes versus the clean food.

What are your favorite hangover cures?
