    hamlette's Note:

    Ah, yes, it's 3:00 in the morning; you hear the baby crying. You go pick him up to comfort him and rock him back to sleep when *BLAT!!!* he spews something just about the colour of pea soup all over your favorite nightshirt. Before you set to the task of trying to remove the toxic waste from your brand new carpet, pop into the kitchen to get this stomach-soothing, sleep-inducing, almost sinfully delicious, spicy tea, (which also serves as a great night-cap) remedy going:

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fill a 10-12 oz cup with hot tap water.
    2. 2
      Spoon all ingredients into a fresh coffee filter (I wouldn't recommend a tea-ball, the ginger and cinnamon will pass right through), tie it off with a twist-tie or cord, and cover.
    3. 3
      Call HazMat (or clean up the baby's mess yourself).
    4. 4
      When the mess is all cleaned up, the tea should be ready.
    5. 5
      For children, you can add a spoon-full of sugar to make it taste more attractive (don't worry, this does NOT detract from the sedative effect of the catnip).
    6. 6
      By this time it should also be cool enough to give to a baby, but give it a test first.

      Thank you for this recipe; it really did the trick! My stomach had been bothering me all day, and drinking this finally calmed it down enough so I could get some sleep. I added honey, because some other poster mentioned that it's helpful for stomach upset. This tea really tasted good, too! Thanks.

      Mmm. I had this with a little milk and honey and it was lovely. Interesting flavors- I never would have thought to combine catnip, which is a cousin of mint and a "cool" flavor with the "hot" cinnamon and ginger. This was quite nice and very soothing. Thanks!
