From Silk Road

Soothe & revive with this refreshing, delightfully minty blend that is non-drowsy. Expertly blended with green tea, peppermint, nettle, tulsi (holy basil), rooibos and eucalyptus. Drink 2-3 cups daily. The optimal selection of ingredients in this tea is associated with helping alleviate symptoms, assist breathing and sinus health, while providing soothing, anti-inflammatory effects and supporting your body in reducing overall allergic response. Studies indicate regular consumption of these ingredients assists on a longer term basis, so drinking this tea year-round, or before seasonal allergies arise may be beneficial. For year-round environmental allergies such as dust and pets, it may be helpful to drink this tea year-round. Tastes delicious hot or iced – enjoy it either way. As it is mostly comprised of caffeine-free herbs and green tea (which is extremely low in caffeine), it is not dehydrating and can be enjoyed as a substitute for water to maintain hydration.

I’ve tried this a few times now (both hot and cold), and can’t say I love it. I don’t hate it, but it tastes very strongly of peppermint/menthol. It is very cooling and it stays in your mouth for ever with that cold menthol feeling. It would be good if they halved the peppermint, but it is very unbalanced the way it is now. You can somewhat taste the lemongrass, but there is also dry hay flavour and something akin to lemon balm (or lemon verbena?) Also, the sales people will not stop going on about how it cures hay fevers. As if I could just drink a cup of this and be cured. If peppermint and lemongrass cured pollen/grass allergies, we wouldn’t need Claratin and other pharmaceuticals (you know, the ones that are actually backed up by medical scientific studies).

I don’t know about this particular tea. It’s my opinion that drinking green tea can have a positive effect on allergies. I think one aspect of it is the mildness of green tea. Consider drinking a cup of coffee which will inflame the throat and then going out into pollen.

The other aspect is the chrolophyll in the tea itself and the fact that tea is a green plant, like grass is.

I do find that matcha can upset my throat from time to tine.

Scientific evidence is another level. I would have to search for studies
