If you’re looking for a natural way to help those nasty spring/summer allergies, this tea may be for you.
Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and contains two bioflavonoids called rutin and quercetin. Both of these compounds block the release of histamine, the chemical our body produces in response to allergens and has been shown to have benefits for skin irritations. Peppermint acts as a decongestant, an anti-inflammatory, and has known antibacterial and antiviral effects. Yerba Mate contains natural caffeine and acts as an anti-inflammatory in response to allergens. This can help to open up respiratory passages and increase oxygen.
