5 Healthy Herbal Teas to Drink for a Healthy Body and Happy Mind

Tea can be a great way to introduce a little moment of zen into your daily routine. Everything from classic chamomile to meditative matcha, tea is a perfect fit to soothe the nerves and promote relaxation and wellbeing.

Herbal teas have been used throughout history and amongst many cultures, both for their health benefits and for pleasure. Some people claim that certain herbal teas have properties that can help reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, and other mental health concerns.


Some herbal teas may help take the edge off occasional stress and anxiety, while others may be better used as a routine complementary therapy for an underlying condition.

Other potential benefits of drinking various herbal teas can include:

  • improving sleep and insomnia conditions
  • soothing upset stomach and digestive issues
  • improving menstrual cramps
  • improving nausea and morning sickness
  • improving blood pressure levels


Green Tea

Green tea contains nutrients and plant compounds, including antioxidants called catechins, that can have positive health effects, such as increasing your metabolism, helping protect against prostate and breast cancer and supporting your immune system. It’s also said to play a role in helping brain function.

If you love green tea, then you’ve probably heard about Matcha. Matcha is a type of green tea that’s made by taking young tea leaves and grinding them down to make Matcha powder. Like green tea, there are benefits aplenty, which are similar to the benefits of drinking green tea. However, one serving of Matcha is the nutritional equivalent of ten cups of regularly brewed green tea.

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint is known for promoting healthy digestion. It contains a compound called menthol that can help relax the intestinal tract and help relieve bloating.

A fresh, energising flavour, the scent is thought to boost alertness and increase concentration. Inhaling the scent of peppermint has even been shown to improve memory and recall – so it might be wise to brew some peppermint tea before your next important Zoom meeting.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile comes from the daisy-like flowers of the Asteraceae plant family and is used as a natural remedy for several health conditions including heart disease and cancer as it’s loaded with antioxidants.

Containing apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to certain receptors in your brain that may promote sleepiness and reduce insomnia, or the chronic inability to sleep, Chamomile is also well known for being used to aid sleep.

Masala Chai

Unlike regular tea, which is brewed with water, chai tea is traditionally brewed using both warm water and warm milk.

A mixture of several ingredients, including cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and cinnamon, Masala Chai is believed to;

– reduce inflammation

– boost immunity

– aid digestion

Ginger Tea

Best known as a trusted nausea remedy, ginger tea has a spicy and full-bodied flavour. It contains the antioxidant gingerol, which is the main bioactive disease-fighting compound found in ancient ginger root. Ginger also contains trace amounts of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B3 and B6, iron, potassium and vitamin C.

Ginger is also believed to have pain-relieving properties, including its potential benefit for those who struggle with headaches and migraines. Drinking ginger tea, therefore, may also help both prevent and relieve headaches.


Next to water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world, and it’s clear to see why. With so many variations, and benefits from drinking it, it’s no surprise it’s so popular. The only question is, how do you take yours?
