One sunny day in Seattle, which doesn’t happen often, I went out for a short walk.
Warm breeze, lots of sunlight, birds chirping… it was indeed a pleasant walk.  Until….
Aaaachooo!!!

Tea to help with allergies

Yes, my body started having allergic reaction.

By the time I returned home, my eyes were itchy, bloody red and swollen. I looked like a different person.
I didn’t know what my body was particularly reacting to, but I knew the moment Spring has arrived.

So I took one stick of Benifuki Powder mixed in 4oz hot water.  I just lied down in sofa feeling so tired after the parade of sneezing.  Then, after a little while, all my symptoms were somewhat relieved.

It does not totally alleviate itchiness and congestion, but I can tell it always works for me.

Benifuki is another type of green tea cultivar developed by the National Institute of Vegetable and Tea Science of Japan (NIVTS) in 1993. Benifuki gained attention for its high content of O-methylated Catechin and effectiveness against allergy symptoms. It has become a very poplar item in Japan especially during the hay fever season.

If you want to go more natural other than taking synthetic drug to fight against allergies, try Benifuki Powder.
