Kuzu is a starch made from wild mountain kuzu root- which you can find in most natural and specialty food stores or online- and it’s incredibly strengthening and calming! This tea really does help you relax and brighten your vibe. I have this when I’m cranky pants. It’s great for so many reasons! Especially pms, nourishing you when you’re on your period, and to calm/soothe little people 🙂 Sip it a few times a week as a preventative remedy. Be mindful not to drink this too close to bedtime, because it might keep you up.
Makes 1 serving.
- 1 teaspoon kuzu
- 1 cup cool water
- 1-2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
In a small saucepan, add the kuzu and water. Let it sit for a moment, then stir until the kuzu is completely dissolved.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly so that the kuzu doesn’t get lumpy. Once the liquid turns clear, add the syrup and enjoy!
