Tea Recipes and Journal

Which tea are good for stress and anxiety?

Stress and anxiety - of all the effects herbal tea can have on the body and mind, this is perhaps my favourite. Why? Simply because it can be such an effective and cheap alternative to modern medicine.

Having some personal experience with stress and anxiety myself, I've been quite looking forward to writing this post. If the information contained within helps even one person find something that works for them and gives a little bit more peace in day to day life then my job is done!

Tea is often perceived as a beverage to be drinking when winding down and relaxing. This is not really technically always the case, as some contain caffeine. So when it comes to stress and anxiety reduction, some tea are most definitely better than others.

Remember - everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another. I would urge you to take the time to try one different type every few days or so and work out which tea has the greatest impact.

Let's start to explore the most effective herbal teas at combating stress and anxiety.
Here we go!

 

Valerian Tea


Tea for StressValerian root tea. Once upon a time I was afflicted with a fairly moderate amount of anxiety and stress daily. During that time I sought answers and relief - of which I can say one of the more effective remedies was Valerian root tea.

It takes awhile to get used to the unusual taste, but once I did get used to it I started to enjoy it. The effect is more mental, and didn't notice any effects on my body. No drowsiness, sleepiness. The only effect I did notice was an enhanced sense of relaxation. There are probably better options of tea to be taking right before bedtime as it doesn't make you drowsy so I'd recommend drinking this tea during the day and then having a tea for sleeping about 15-30 mins before bedtime.

 

Passionflower Tea

Passionflower TeaPassionflower tea is good for anxiety, but also has the added effect of making it easier to get to sleep. If I were to give a rating for both teas, I would give Valerian tea a 9/10 for anxiety/stress relief and a 3/10 for a sleeping aid. I would give Passionflower 6/10 for stress and anxiety and then 8/10 for sleeping aid.

This should give you some idea as to the strengths and weakness between the two.
This herb is sometimes recommended by therapists for those suffering from generalized anxiety disorder, because it's a good allrounder tea for sleep, stress, and anxiety that's also easy to stomach for those not used to the variety of tastes that different herbal teas have to offer.

 

Damiana Tea

Damiana TeaDamiana yet again has different strengths and weakness to the above two. With quite an earthy taste, some people that didn't have much success with Passionflower or Valerian - found their answer within Damiana. Interestingly this tea can also enhance libido, which is one of the things normally affected by stress and anxiety. If your libidos decline is the result of stress and anxiety, then I would urge giving this one a go. A great tea for balancing the hormones and emotions - with many reporting an uplifting feeling for hours after consuming.

Tasty tea

Really nice tea, and very affordable. Bought some as a gift and the rose earl grey for myself.

Hi Rasha, thank you for your review! Rose Earl Grey is our second most popular earl grey behind french.
Love it

Love this beautiful tea. Perfect for my well being and doesn't make me feel sick, like some other brands of green tea/Jasmine blends. I find this tea is very good quality, and very good value at the same time.

Hi Caroline, thanks for your review! We've never had reports of anyone feeling sick with any of our jasmine or green teas - in fact we've heard a few like you that normally do have a chance to with other types but don't with ours!
My new fav tea!

This tea is amazing. I now drink it daily with rice milk, it tastes delicious!

Hi Kylie, oh Rice milk would be interesting I'll have to try that some time. Thank you for your review!
Chrysanthemum Golden Flower Tea

The flowers were smaller than i expected compared to the photos. This tea purchase was for someone else but we tried it together. I'm not sure if it was just because it was at the top of the packet but the first 4 flowers i took out didn't have as many petals on them as shown in the photos.

I did enjoy the tea and loved the brightness of yellow petals. I will be purchasing a packet for myself in my next order. It has a nice light and smooth taste.

Hi There, thank you for your detailed review! The golden chrysanthemum flowers while pretty good quality - we can't keep them all the same unfortunately as they're all within the bulk of a pack and not individually wrapped. Re: Cautionary - I think you're quite right and when Tea Life first started the labels were done and then had plans to improve on them later on. However we've grown a bit too fast and labels have been put on the sidelines for awhile - but yes there is a lot of work that needs to be done to them and the pile keeps growing as we keep adding more teas! For now, since we're focused on online only and not so much on stocking supermarkets and shops we hope that people stay within the website/packaging ecosystem and have the info they need - it's almost okay but something we'll try to sort out asap.

Pau D'Arco Tea
