Normally I can hardly taste a thing once allergy season hits… or so I thought. Then I went and accidentally chugged a pint glass full of this tea, unsweetened, thinking it was something else. I found out pretty fast that my taste buds still work. I don’t recommend drinking it this way, it’s a very bitter brew, but with a spoonful of honey or sugar it goes down a lot easier. I’ve been enjoying a cup in the morning to help with some of my allergy symptoms. The tea worked well to ease my sore throat and itchy ears (does anyone else suffer from this annoying problem during allergy season? It drives me nuts!) I could also see it being very useful during cold season. Yarrow has been used for centuries as a fever reducer, horehound has always been my choice for sore throats (although I prefer candy drops,) and wild cherry bark is frequently used to treat coughs.
