Your head pounds like a grandfather clock. Your throat’s as dry as the Gobi desert. You shiver like an arctic explorer. You get
the picture…you have a hangover. Many of us have had them, none of us enjoy them. In fact, throughout history people have
hated hangovers so much, they’ve gone to great lengths to get rid of them. After a night on the town, ancient Assyrians ate a
concoction of ground bird’s beaks and myrrh. In Europe during the Middle Ages, doctors recommended a not-so-pleasant
breakfast of eel and bitter almonds. (Don't worry, it gets worse.) In Mongolia, hangover sufferers ate pickled sheep’s eyes. No
Thankfully, we’ve got a hangover remedy that won’t turn your stomach any more than it already is. We experimented with
select herbs, spices, and dried vegetables until we found a blend that was as delicious as it was soothing. The result, Hangover
Helper offers calming herbal notes, vitamins and a spicy blast of flavor to really the edge off.
Now, just in case you’re wondering, we didn't mention the other traditional hangover cure up above…the ol’ hair of the dog. In
case that’s the cure you’re going for, this blend is actually quite spectacular brewed hot or over ice with a splash of vodka
added. Think of it as a tea-based Bloody Mary. Good luck! We would suggest adding a stalk of celery but it might be too noisy for a headache.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of herbal tea for each 7-9oz/200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot.
Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time, the better the flavor as more fruit and herb
flavor is extracted). Garnish and sweeten to taste.
Iced tea brewing method (Pitcher): (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 12 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼
cups/315ml over the herbal tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your
serving pitcher straining the tea. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten
to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot brew since it will
be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Iced tea brewing method (Individual Serving): Place 2 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea, into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml
per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice,
straining the tea. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Garnish
and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it
will be poured over ice and diluted.
You might like to add honey, lemon, or sugar to Hangover Helper tea but we don't recommend adding milk or mint.
