Kudzu-Shoyu-Ume Tea for Colds, Flu and Fevers

Posted Jan 08 2010 12:00am

This is an ancient Japanese remedy for quickly alkalizing the blood and is
useful for all sorts of conditions:  Feel a cold or flu coming on?  Drink a cup
of this.  It makes a great hangover remedy too. As odd as this drink is for us Westerners, it works
well for upset tummies, hangovers, colds and more.

* 1 teaspoon Kudzu

* 1 cup
cold water

* 1 teaspoon Umeboshi paste

* Shoyu (or tamari soy

* ¼ cup grated diakon radish

* ½ to 1 teaspoon Ginger Juice (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 in a small saucepan. It will be
easier if you dissolve it in some of the water and then add the rest. Then
add the ume paste. Stir over medium 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 ginger juice
and grated daikon and stir well. Drink hot.
