Well it won't exactly cure everything - but this Japanese remedy can take down that sluggishness or hangover you might be feeling today from too much green beer. Pep yourself back up by drinking this simple brew.
1 teaspoon Kudzu
1 C. cold water
1 Umeboshi plum
Shoyu (or tamari soy sauce)
Ginger (to make juice just grate a little on a fine grater. Take the gratings in your fingers and squeeze out a few drops of juice.)
Simply dissolve 1 heaping teaspoon of kudzu in 1 cup cold water. It will be easier if you dissolve it in some of the water and then add the rest. Then add 1/2 to a whole ume plum. (no ume plum? Use 1/2 teaspoon of the plum paste) Stir over med. heat until the liquid becomes more clear in color and it is okay if it comes to a boil. Add maybe 1/2 teaspoon of shoyu (or tamari soy sauce) and then turn off the heat. Add a little ginger juice and put it in a tea cup to drink. It will be too hot so just wait a few minutes.
