Are allergies making your summer miserable?
Have you tried natural remedies?
Tea has been used as a beverage and a natural cure for many ailments for thousands of years – since 59BC in China. Tea was mentioned in medical texts in the 3rd century AD.
Herbal teas are better for relieving itchy eyes, runny nose and sore throats caused by seasonal allergies than regular black tea for two reasons:
They contain more natural antihistamines and anti-inflammatories
They contain less caffeine
Herbal teas are usually drunk without milk or sugar which can be histamine triggers
Different types of herbal tea contain ingredients that have histamine blocking or anti-inflammatory properties
Many of our teas are natural blends of carefully harvested and prepared leaves from plants selected for their unique natural properties for the relief of allergies.
Our Selection Of Teas For Allergies
Ginger acts as a natural antihistamine by helping the body rid itself of histamine faster. It is a natural antihistamine that helps to reduce IgE antibody levels to recuse sneezing and itching.
Green Tea is produced from the same tea bush (Camellia Sinensis) as black tea. However, it does not get dried and processed in the same way as black tea. It contains polyphenols that have anti-inflammatory properties and quercetin which is a natural antihistamine.
Rooibos tea is produced from the Rooibos plant (Aspalathus linearis) which grows in the Cedarberg Mountains in the Western Cape of South Africa. Rooibos tea contains many polyphenols including flavanols and aspalathin which can block the release of histamine.

Peppermint oil and peppermint inhalations have been used for generations for relief from allergies and other ailments. Drinking peppermint teas is a convenient and relaxing way to help with allergies.
Turmeric is in the same plant family as Ginger and shares its health benefits. It also contains curcumin which has anti-inflammatory properties and may limit histamine production.
