Lately it has been very windy and the pollen is blowing everywhere. What is the best tea to drink to fight the effects of the pollen on my sinuses? 

Thank you in advance!

No tea does that but some herbal teas might help.

I don't know what kind of pollen you are allergic too but I drink chamomille tea against my birch pollen allergy. It's not proven in sridies but chamomille is a cross allergene too birch so I figured that it could work against birch pollen allergy in the same way that allergy vaccines work. But I start drinking it some weeks before the pollen season.

And remember you could get a reaction too it too, and I am not a doctor or specialice in herbal tea (it's tea I know) so don't expect too much and check your allergy for chamomille too.

Rooibos "red tea" have traditionally been used for allergy too.

Awesome thank you! I understand I am just looking for some relief for my sinuses. I have seasonal allergies and Spring is the worst time. I'm not sure exactly what pollen I am allergic to.
