With St. Patrick's Day afoot, we thought a green drink would make sense. But instead of the usual beer, whiskey, and grog, the Hot Dish offers up some counter-programming that is still green, but a mite more healthy.
So what do we recommend as a great green recovery drink?
|Drink in the steam|
It comes to your table brewing, and as you pour the steeped tea into your white cup, a plume of serenity rises to greet you. The leaves and herbs inside are a Nepalese highland green tea with Vata (air & space), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth) elements added for inner well-being, harmony and clarity, and mental and physical strength, respectively. A slightly woody, spicy taste emanates from the hot liquid as the varying herbs add hints of cinnamon, cardamom, chesnut, ginger, and cloves.
|Good to the last ayurvedic drop.|
So feel free to unleash your Irish party animal and know that a different kind of green will be waiting for you afterward--when you're ready to recover.
