There's a Tea for You, No Matter What You're Feeling

It’s no secret that certain teas have special powers when you drink them at the right times. The English have tea like we have our soda – all of the time. But which tea do you drink when? Where do I get all of these different kinds of teas? I’ve put together a tea-guide for you when you have sleepless nights, an upset stomach or even when you’re stressed.

When you’re stressed// When you’re stressed, try making yourself some lemon balm tea. Some research shows that lemon balm tea reduces symptoms in people with anxiety disorders. Research also shows that lemon balm increases calmness and awareness during tests. (You’re going to have to remember that during finals!) Another research study found that when drinking lemon balm tea on a regular basis for about four weeks it lowers agitation and edginess in people who are stressed and regularly anxious.

When you can’t sleep// Chamomile gives a calming effect when you can’t sleep. Chamomile tea has mild sedative effects. Chamomile is known for its ability to relieve insomnia and encourage a good nights sleep. If you’ve been having restless, sleepless nights, make yourself a steamy mug of chamomile tea just before bedtime to insure a goodnight’s sleep all the way through the night.

When you have an upset stomach// Peppermint tea is great for when you have an upset stomach. Peppermint works by both calming the muscles of the stomach and improving the “flow”. Peppermint tea works especially well when you have an upset stomach due to over eating.

When you’re having weight issues// Green tea is an amazing tea that has awesome antioxidant benefits. Green tea helps everything from reducing fibrocystic nodes to weight loss to digestive problems.

When you have cold/flu symptoms// Ginger tea relieves cold and flu symptoms while also reducing nausea. Ginger seems to aid digestion and salvia flow also. Ginger can also help with painful periods (finally a helpful “cure”!) In one study, more than 60% of women who drank ginger tea during their last period, it lessened the pain for them!

So where do you get all of these amazing teas to help with your every little problem? They’re all easier to find than you think. Recently I purchased a pack of 20 little tea bags with 5 different flavors. And how much did I spend? $3. Yep. You read right. For $3 I purchased 20 tea bags with flavors such as lemon, lavender, chamomile at Walmart.

If you can’t find the flavors you need down in the tea and coffee isle of your local Walmart or grocery store, head down to your closest health food store, such as Whole Foods, Trader Joes or Fresh Market. Another great place to find some awesome teas is at a place called “World Market”. If you don’t have one of those close by, don’t worry, because you can always purchase online!
If you happen to have a Keurig, they also make many, many different kinds tea “KCups” available at most grocery stores! All you have to do is pop one in; add some water and press “brew”.

This is most definitely not an all-inclusive list, by any means. There are many different teas out on the market today that have many different uses for any kind of problem you could have!
