Curing Austin’s Cedar Fever with Teatime Domains

Reading Time | 3 Minutes

If you’re fortunate enough to move or live in Central Texas for an extended period of time, then you’ll become quite familiar with a term not as common to the rest of the US: Cedar Fever. ?

What’s interesting is that I didn’t suffer with Cedar Fever or any sort of allergies until being here in Austin for nearly seven (7) years.

It was as if someone flipped a switch, then I became allergic to everything under the sun, specifically Cedar. ?

From November to March of each year, “The Austin Plague” sideline a number of new and longtime Austinites.

In fact, Cedar Fever is so bad here in Austin that there are days that the trees appear to be on fire because of how thick their pollen is when bursting into the air. ?

Plume after plume of cedar fill the air like a wildfire’s smoke plumes. Some days it limits line of sight for flying and driving occasionally.

Personally, I’ve become addicted to curing and staying ahead of Cedar Fever using the Neti Pot or Rinse Starter, and religiously having daily teatimes of tea and warm lemon water.

I drink all sorts of tea, but mostly English Breakfast is my go-to tea, also known as premium black tea.

However, the other day I was rummaging through my assorted jars of tea and came across two different teas: Blackberry, and Organic Chamomile with Lavender.

What truly made me stop and take notice of both teas were their respective domains: and

Out of both, I like as a domain although I recommend the company also purchasing as a defensive registration.

As for, it’s quite a long name and “medicinals” is likely a tricky word to spell for most folks. Personally, I recommend opting for one or more of the following to shorten the domain to some more memorable and easy to spell:

And of course, I reviewed both websites. Unfortunately, uses an outdated mid-to-late 90’s website while has a modern, responsive-friendly website.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t recall encountering too many teas, tea bags or tea packages with prominently displayed domains.

Nevertheless, I eventually drank both, having warmed my spirit, opened my nasal passage way to breathe again, and provided even a bit of encouragement for the workday’s assignment.

If you struggle with allergies, especially “The Austin Plague”, and in search of a natural remedy, then try either of these teas.

Thanks and that’s all for now!
