I'm starting to suffer from pollen this year again and a friend of mine swears by Rooibos tea. I tried to google for awhile and I did read some people having benefits of Rooibos tea for allergies. I also read it has similar effects as Chamomile, so I was thinking about taking it at night since it has no caffeine and has high antixoidants.

Anybody try the tea before?

Yes. Quite tasty. A little tart. I was not aware of its anti-allergy effects. If it is due to quercetin, I am not impressed. But I will try the tea again.

Thanks for that info.

In its native South Africa, Rooibos is well known for aiding pregnancy and skin care, for example. It also has high levels of antioxidants, which boost the immune system and ward off allergies. Another key factor for combating allergies is the flavonoids which are known to have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiviral properties. These two properties create a tasty natural option to reduce allergy symptoms.
