Haven’t had much in the way of tea the last couple days. Allergies. I had to go to the walk in clinic today. Shot in the butt and a sack full of drugs later and my wife heated up water so I could have this one. It made me feel a little better.

Just read an article about puerh and allergies.

I can’t seem to find the article I was reading, I kind of got to it by bouncing around links in tea blogs, but here is a list of components in puerh, quercetin. http://belighttea.com/chemical-constituents-of-pu-erh-tea/

Another article in the flip side, I found enlightening is about side effects from drinking too much overly green tea. Raw puerh needs to be aged, or ripe can balance out the effects of too much green. A high roasted oolong or other black tea does the same thing. I’m not making statements, just sharing results from a lot of reading.

Thanks. My experience with puerh has been completely positive in regards to any side affects.

It is quercetin that is the antihistamine compound. I read elsewhere something in papaya will strengthen quercetin’s effect.
