Best Teas for Anxiety

Anxiety tends to creep into our lives, even when we are trying our hardest to avoid it. Unfortunately, during this past year throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have experienced increased anxiety and stress. The good news is that there are many holistic lifestyle habits you can practice to help reduce your anxiety and manage your symptoms. In fact, drinking tea may help calm anxiety and relax your mind. Try an herbal tea from Art of Tea to soothe your senses.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea has been known for its potential health benefits and anxiety-reducing properties. Because it is caffeine-free, it can be enjoyed anytime throughout the day, including evenings. Chamomile tea, which is made from dried chamomile flowers, may increase your production of serotonin and melatonin, leaving your body feeling relaxed. If you experience anxiety, try adding a cup or two of chamomile tea into your routine to help calm your mind and body.

Valerian Root Tea

Valerian root has been used for centuries for its believed calming effects and has been called “nature’s valium”. It may help regulate nerve impulses in the brain which may help ease anxiety and stress. Many tea drinkers strongly believe in valerian root’s ability to reduce anxiety before bed and promote a healthy sleep schedule. Here at Art of Tea, we blend valerian root into our Sleep Tea for exactly that purpose.

Peppermint Tea & Anxiety

Peppermint tea is also known as one of the best teas for potentially helping with anxiety. For many people, anxiety and stress can upset their digestive system. Peppermint is often used to calm anxiety and promote regular, healthy digestion. Try our Dark Chocolate Peppermint Tea if you’re looking for a delicious peppermint tea to enjoy.

Green Tea

Green tea is also full of antioxidants that may help your physical and mental health. Antioxidants have been known to protect the brain from oxidative damage, keep negativity at bay, and improve memory function. Green tea may help reduce stress and anxiety when consumed daily. That said, It’s important to be aware of your caffeine levels and avoid excess caffeine before bed to ensure a healthy night’s sleep.
