10 TYPES OF TEA THAT RELIEVE SEASONAL ALLERGIES
The aromatic properties of peppermint tea are highly refreshing and invigorating. If you’re experiencing congestion or irritation related to allergies, drinking a cup of peppermint tea will help clear your airways and relieve stress.
Ginger tea helps reduce uncomfortable swelling and itching of the eyes, nose, and throat, which are common symptoms of seasonal allergies.
Rooibos tea is one of the most powerful teas you can drink to fight off allergies. Rooibos has anti-inflammatory properties which can reduce congestion, natural vitamin c which helps reduce watery eyes and a runny nose, and quercetin which prevents allergic reactions.
Lemon balm tea is similar to mint tea and can be used to alleviate the symptoms of allergies with its natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
Berry teas, such as blueberry or elderberry, are a natural antihistamine as they contain high levels of quercetin, antioxidants, and vitamin c.
Turmeric tea naturally contains a high percentage of curcumin which is full of antioxidants and functions as a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Green tea is touted for being high in antioxidants, but it also contains natural antihistamines that reduce the symptoms of allergic reactions to pollen.
Tea with stinging nettle contains antihistamines and anti-inflammatory properties that target and ease nasal inflammation.
Tulsi tea is an adaptogenic tea that fights off stress and allergic inflammation.
Soothing licorice root tea is known to help with allergic rhinitis due to the presence of glycyrrhizic acid, a therapeutic anti-allergy ingredient.
Tip: Add a dollop of local honey to your cup of tea to help build up an immunity to seasonal allergies!
