It was so appropriate that it snowed this morning (but only for a little bit) as today was the Toronto Santa Clause Parade. I watched about half of the parade with Tony, but we worried about the crowds of people trying to get home, so we decided to leave a bit early. From the floats we saw, we were really impressed. But from the crowds of people we saw, we were really discouraged (SO many people).
In Botanical Medicine, I learned about this root tea that should be drunk 1 to three times a day during stressful periods.
1 tbsp chopped, fresh ginger
2 tsp powdered ginseng
1/2 tsp licorice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Boil all ingredients in one liter of water for 10 minutes. Discard/strain any remnants. Drink one cup (about 250 mL) at a time.
