gesundheitWith May on the way and NYC weather finally cooperating, spring is definitely in full bloom. Time to fall in love, enjoy the cherry blossoms, and sneeze your face off from all those allergens. Luckily, tea can help.

For example, among its many health benefits, Rooibos can be fairly effective in soothing the human body’s reaction to allergies (its cousin Honeybush shares similar advantages). Green tea, too, has been shown to be a helpful source for effective anti-allergenic agents.

And for those red, swollen eyes, try applying used teabags (after all, why waste?) for a few minutes – the irritation should subside and your skin will look great!

So make yourself a cup of tea, go outside and enjoy nature – don’t worry, tea’s got your back!
