Doesn’t it figure that National Celiac Awareness Month coincides with allergy season? It seems the perfect fit, really. For those of us who are allergic to gluten we get to deal with both internal and external allergies! Well those allergies have hit us particularly hard and we have been walking around in an allergy-induced haze; fogginess, coughing, wheezing. It is the season for general discomfort! In scouring the Internet for ways to manage allergy symptoms naturally we were overwhelmed with all of the different remedies out there. We decided to just test our luck and throw everything together in one mug of hot water and we were pleasantly surprised! Not only did it taste good, within about half an hour we actually felt better. We did end up needing to drink it every few hours to keep it up, but we suspect it is because, at that point, we were already feeling crummy and the nasty allergy-related effects had already taken hold.

We recognize that some vegans choose to not use honey because it is an animal byproduct, while other vegans have no problem with honey. So where the recipe calls for agave syrup, you can also substitute honey.

  • 1 bag green tea
  • 1 bag chamomile tea
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon marshmallow root powder

Steep all ingredients together in hot water and drink.

*marshmallow root coats the throat, but since many people don’t have it hanging around their pantry, don’t feel bad leaving it out. The rest of the ingredients are just as great.

Fresh ingredients are always best, but we did run out of fresh ginger and used powdered ginger. It tasted just as delicious. If the heat from the cayenne is too much for you, scale down on that just a bit. Also, if you are getting ready for bed, you may want to use either caffeine-free green tea, or just use the chamomile. Lavender-based tea would be a lovely substitute as well, because it has a calming effect.
