i read in this new mag that we got a free copy of at the grocery store yesterday that ribos tea is good for allergies and your skin, i certainly am not going to quit taking my anti-histimines or anything like that (or i'd be a giant hive!!) but i do want to try it see if it helps at all cause i'm all over natural remedies and love tea (just about any kind you put in front of me, (black, green, white, herbal)

anyway i was wondering
1) has anyone else heard that ribios tea is good for allergies and your skin
2) what in the heck does it taste like? i don't want to run out and buy this stuff and find out it tastes similar to somethign i don't like so if anyone's tried it tell me what you thougth of it, like is too strong, too spicey, too sweet ect

I have heard that too. I have tried it...it's okay. As far as helping allergies goes I don't know 'cause I"m not the one with the major allergy problems in our house...everyone else is.

There's another mini-discussion on rooibos tea here: http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=928

thanx for that...

i love that so many teas have health benifits! i started googling around once i looked in the mag for the right spelling for the tea (woops) and i found that it's also known to help with sleep, so i think i'm definatly gonna pick some up while i'm out and about today, i'm fairly certain that PC has some which means i won't go broke trying to buy it, i looked for it from the company which i get my coffee (organic, fair trade) and it's almost eight dollars for sixteen tea bags and it's not even certified fair trade!!!! so the grocery store will be just fine to get this stuff ;)
