Green tea is great for hang over
I have to admit that I drink more sake than I should although I am not that young in the age anymore. It's just because I feel so happy with friends and family and that boosts the speed of drinking. OK, enough for excuses.

Green tea also contains lots of Vitamin C. Vitamin C reduces acetaldehyde that sit in your blood more when you drink alcoholic beverage.
