When it comes to anxiety, certain types of tea can work wonders in promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels. One of the key components of tea is L-theanine, an amino acid known for its calming effects on the mind and body. L-theanine increases the production of alpha waves in the brain, which are associated with a state of relaxation and mental clarity.

Which teas are best for anxiety relief?

    Chamomile Tea: Known for its gentle and soothing properties, chamomile tea is a popular choice for anxiety relief. Chamomile is a flowering herb from the Asteraceae plant family—when fresh, it resembles a miniature daisy. Chamomile is also a powerful antioxidant, says Rachel Cheatham, PhD, founder and CEO of the nutrition consulting firm Foodscape Group and adjunct assistant professor at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. Chamomile contains the antioxidant "apigenin", which has been shown to reduce insomnia, allowing for a more healthy sleep cycle. Sipping on a warm cup of chamomile tea can help ease tension and promote better sleep, allowing you to wake up refreshed and rejuvenated.

  2. Green Tea: Packed with antioxidants, green tea not only boosts your overall health but also has a calming effect on the mind. The combination of L-theanine and a small amount of caffeine in green tea can help improve focus and reduce anxiety without causing jitters.
  3. Lavender Tea: Lavender is renowned for its relaxing scent, but it can also be enjoyed as a tea. Lavender tea has been used for centuries to promote calmness and alleviate anxiety symptoms. It has also been linked to helping postnatal mothers by increasing maternal-infant attachment. Just a few sips of this floral-infused tea can transport you to a state of tranquility. Our two flavors, Goddess of War and Santa Meurte are great options for lavender-infused teas.
