As an allergy warrior, I drink a cup of this tea every morning to keep my defenses up during pollen season. My hometown is rated second in the world for pollen density so breathing is often a chore. This blend gives the body a hefty dose of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it sorely needs. Use organic herbs to be sure your body doesn’t have to fight off addtional pesticides too.
