1 ¾ cup filtered water
1 Twig Tea bag
½ Umeboshi plum or ½ teaspoon umeboshi plum paste
1 tablespoon Kuzu
2 drops good quality Tamari
Bring the water to a boil in a small stainless steel pot. Turn off the heat and add the tea bag to steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag. Put the umeboshi in the pot and stir until dissolved. Place the kuzu into a drinking cup and mix with 2 tablespoons cool water. Slowly stir the kuzu and water into the pot and watch it thicken. Pour the thickened tea back into the drinking cup. Add the tamari drops and drink.
This tea is excellent to help relieve fatigue and when you feel like you might be getting a cold and if you already got the cold.
These ingredients are staples in my kitchen and have been for decades. In fact I always take umeboshi and twig tea bags with me on overnight trips. I can always get some hot water, steep a tea bag and drink a cup of the soothing tea. And either add a little umeboshi into the tea or later put a little right in my mouth, if the tea and umeboshi are not in the same place.
