Finally, Fall has arrived! We look forward to waking up to the cool morning air and walking outside to the bright colors of reds, oranges, and yellows. All the great things about this season allows us to forget what else comes with the change, allergies and the flu. The constant sneezing, running nose, and itchy eyes usually seem to spread from household to household during the start of the season. Luckily we have a few sip tips to help you get through the pollen-filled, sick days and out exploring the beautiful Fall season!

Block out the Bad! Sip some Revival.

Rooibos Loose Leaf Tea contains bioflavonoids that block out allergy causing histamines. In other words, sip on the many different flavors of Rooibos tea and keep the bad out of your system! Need a stronger flu defense?  Peppermint helps provide relief for congested noses and irritated sinuses. Add in ginger and licorice root to help ease irritated respiratory passages and soothe your cough.

Sip Suggestion: Pekoe Revival Organic Loose Leaf Herbal Tea

Organic Pekoe Revival tea is made with immune-boosting ginger and mint. This is a unique and great tasting wellness-boosting herbal tea blend with naturally caffeine-free rooibos tea, peppermint, ginger, licorice root, and cloves. Reward your body after a clarifying yoga practice or high-intensity workout session with a healthy and flavorful loose-leaf tea that also aids in respiration and digestion.

Keep the Tissues Away! 

Green Loose Leaf Tea fights off the common allergy symptoms of sneezing, coughing and watery eyes. Sip more on this tea and spend less time worrying about where the tissue box is!

Sip Suggestion: Lemon Flower Loose Leaf Green Tea

Enjoy the soft and subtle sweetness of green tea infused with lemon, chrysanthemum flowers, and whole chamomile. Lemon is high in vitamin C and antioxidants which help remove free radicals from the body and improves the immune system. This is a healthy and invigorating cup that is great morning, noon, and night. Chrysanthemum is used to treat chest pain (angina), high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, fever, cold, headache, dizziness, and swelling. In combination with other herbs, chrysanthemum is also used to treat prostate cancer.

Life should be sweet!

Local Honey is a perfect way to sneak in a little sweetness into your daily drinks and food while fighting off seasonal local allergies! By adding local honey, overtime your body will start to become immune to the pollen in the air and keep you healthier during each change of season! Life is sweet!

Local Suggestion: Grandma’s Gourmet Honey in Alamosa, CO

Not only is local honey the perfect compliment to any tea. 20% of all Pekoe honey sales will be donated to the Colorado State Beekeepers Association to support our local beekeepers! Saving these bees will help save you from those irritating seasonal allergies!
