Allergy Season Herbal Tea - Herbal tea formula #11 in a series (Caffeine-Free)

Allergy Season Tea

Be prepared for spring. If anyone in your family gets hay-fever, this is the herbal tea blend to make for them. It is a very pleasant tasting tea, so enjoy it as you gain it's anti-allergy and anti-hive benefits. If you know you are allergic to any of the ingredients contained in this tea, simply leave them out.

I created this tea for my daughter. When she was a toddler, she broke out in hives all over her body. We could not figure out what the cause was, and the hives did not go away after a few days. As a concerned mother, and experienced in the way of herbs, I did my research. I created this blend of gentle herbs, making it taste good so she would drink it. Drink it she did and her hives then quickly went away, not to return. I was very grateful. Herbs are amazing in how powerful yet gentle they can be. I prefer to do everything I can to help my family heal first, if we do not succeed, then to the Doctors we go. But usually we succeed.


26 grams Brigham Tea
16 grams Feverfew
10 grams Wood Betony
10 grams Lemon Balm
10 grams Spearmint Leaf
8 grams Nettle Leaf
8 grams Billberry Leaves or berries
4 to 5 grams Stevia Leaf, optional for sweetening
2 grams peppermint Leaf

Optional Ingredients:

Lemon Verbena, if you want a stronger lemon taste.

You can add more anti-inflammatory herbs like:
Licorice Root (it also sweetens the tea)
Sweet Clover
Hops (bitter if steeped too long, but calming)
Valerian Root (a bit weird smelling but very effective)


Place the dried herbs in a glass jar with an air-tight lid.
Shake well to mix.
Store air-tight in a cool dark place.

To Brew Herbal Tea:

Bring purified water to a boil in a stove-top kettle.
Place 1 to 2 teaspoons desired loose leaf herbal tea blend into a cup.
Pour about 1 cup boiling water over the herbs and cover the cup.
Allow to steep 5 minutes.
Strain and sweeten if desired.


You may use a bamboo tea strainer or Tea-ball to make straining your teas a snap.

At our house, we use a French coffee press to make bigger batches of tea - it works great!


The calming herbs in this blend will counteract the slightly stimulating effect of the Brigham tea.
Brigham Tea is known as the #1 herb for allergies like hay-fever. It is also used as a weight-loss tea.
