7 Great Tea Blends for Relieving Anxiety

Suffering from anxiety can range from a mild inconvenience when dealing with episodes or flare-ups, to a debilitating issue that you have to try to cope with daily. No matter how mild or severe your anxiety may be, looking for ways to help manage and relieve the symptoms is essential. One option you may want to look into that tends to work well in combination with other anxiety treatments is specific tea blends that target anxiety. But which tea blends work best? Here are seven great tea blends that can help you to relieve your anxiety and take control of your life.

Chamomile Tea

When it comes to tea that can help relieve anxiety, chamomile is perhaps one of the most widely touted options. It has a relaxing property to it that can help calm and soothe your mind and body. An herbal free version can be enjoyed before bed to help you wind down and, if you like it sweet, you can add a touch of organic honey.

Matcha Tea

Even though matcha tea isn't new, it seems it is gaining in popularity as of late. Matcha can be found in all kinds of food and drink options, making it widely available. However, if you want to target anxiety, be sure to choose all-natural matcha tea with no added ingredients.

What makes this tea so special is that it contains very high levels of L-theanine. When L-theanine is combined with caffeine, the results are to help someone feel calmer and enter an almost meditative state. Again, this can be especially helpful before bed or when you’re trying to have some downtime at home.

Green Tea

Here's another popular herbal tea that can do wonders for reducing anxiety. Pure green tea is a great option for anyone that wants to achieve that sense of calmness and lower their stress levels.

Kratom Powder Tea

Another option you can look into is kratom powder tea. Simply put the powder in boiling water for about 30 minutes, then remove it from the heat and strain it. You'll be left with a tea that can be enjoyed cold or hot. You can find plenty of information that covers the pros and cons of kratom and how it can help to relieve anxiety in people.

Mint Tea

Here's a tea blend that can offer a variety of benefits, making it a great option. Mint tea is known to help calm your body yet, thanks to its lively flavor, it also helps to boost your mood. You’ll have the choice between caffeine-free or caffeine versions of mint tea, so it comes down to what you’re in the mood for. Also, mint tea tends to be blended with other ingredients such as fennel, lemongrass, lavender, licorice and ginger just to name a few. This helps to provide unique and interesting flavors.

Lavender Tea

Speaking of lavender, it too can provide relaxing benefits. It is typically used to help relieve anxiety, reduce aches and pains and it can even help to alleviate skin concerns, such as acne.

Valerian Root Tea

While not as popular or as widely used as the others on the list, valerian root tea also deserves a mention. This one is particularly helpful for those who suffer from sleep issues due to anxiety or insomnia. Drinking valerian root tea before bed can be just enough to ensure you have a good night’s uninterrupted sleep.

Because each of these tea blends tastes so different from one other, and they all have their own list of benefits, you may want to give them all a try instead of picking just one.
