Mie Mie Sein isn’t just a botanist, herbalist and the owner of Sawadee Tea House (1871 Granville Street)—she’s a hangover miracle worker. By combining over 10 different herbs—including the South American tummy settler boldo and chamomile--- she’s created her Hair of the Dog Hangover Tea, a concoction she swears by.
“My friends like to party, and I thought, ‘How can I do this and work the next day?’,” says Sein. “I don’t mind going out with them anymore.” She suggests steeping a teaspoon-and-a-half (or three grams) of her mix with boiling water (extra hot helps) for 20 minutes (be patient, it’ll be worth it) and drink it up *before* you go chug-a-lug—call it intelligent pre-drinking. Sub a cup of this for your morning-after Tylenol too and you’re golden. “It takes the toxins out of your system,” she says. “And no headache.”
Somebody turn the kettle on.
