Best Teas to Settle the Stomach

Dealing with an upset stomach isn’t fun. For most stomach aches, it's common to wait until the discomfort has passed or to grab something quick from your medicine cabinet to try to alleviate the pain. But next time you’re experiencing an uneasy stomach, try brewing a hot cup of herbal tea instead. You’ll quickly find that herbal tea can be much more powerful and beneficial than the Pepto Bismol you’ve been turning to. In fact, a cup of tea can help with digestive issues, menstruation, motion sickness, and nausea, making it a great option for an upset stomach.

How to Soothe an Upset Stomach

Best Teas to Settle the StomachMost often, your stomach is upset because of something you ate. Maybe it was eating too quickly, overindulging, or eating something that just doesn’t agree with you. It happens to everyone from time to time, but thankfully, herbal tea is an easy, all-natural home remedy to settle your stomach. Tea soothes inflammation and aids digestion. Many herbal teas are high in antioxidants and flavonoids which decrease harmful gut bacteria, promote healthy bacteria, decrease gas production, and speed up the digestive process.

Naturally Calm Your Stomach With Tea

At Art of Tea, we strongly believe in the healing powers and benefits of tea. If you are experiencing an upset stomach, look for these ingredients and blends that we recommend:

  • Ginger: For thousands of years, people have been using ginger medicinally. Ginger root is known to increase your digestive response, allowing your stomach and intestines to be more relaxed and less cramped. Ginger can also reduce gas and bloating. Try our Breathe Tea, made with turmeric, ginger, and bergamot.

  • Fennel: Fennel seeds have been historically used in tea to relax the digestive tract. It is rich in B vitamins and has antibacterial properties that have been shown to reduce constipation, menstrual cramps, and nausea. For your next upset stomach, try our Wellness Gut Health bundle made with organic fennel seeds.

  • Green tea: Green tea is known for offering a myriad of amazing health benefits, like decreasing your risk of cancer and stroke to increasing your metabolism. Additionally, green tea has been known to soothe the stomach and decrease indigestion. At Art of Tea, we offer a number of green tea combinations in loose-leaf tea, sachets, and more.

  • Licorice: Like ginger root, licorice has been used for centuries to boost the immune system, decrease inflammation, and soothe the stomach. Licorice root can help heal a number of stomach disorders like ulcers, heartburn, and indigestion. When your stomach is feeling off, try our Feel Better Tea, which is the perfect combination of licorice, fennel, echinacea, and elderberry.
