Teas and Their Benefits – Boost Your Mood And Try Our Tea Suggestions

Teas and Their Benefits - Boost Your Mood And Try Our Tea SuggestionsIs there anything as invigorating as the fragrant aroma arising from a cup of piping hot tea? Or, maybe you prefer your tea brisk, swimming in a glass of ice cubes? Whichever way you like this versatile beverage, there’s a flavorful tea to match your every mood!

Tea has plenty of health benefits; it contains antioxidants, minerals, and essential oils. But it also has the power to boost our moods, and with so many teas to try, why not add a few new ones to your mix?

Hibiscus tea is loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C. For this reason, it’s a good tea to try at the onset of a cold. Some doctors even prescribe it for high blood pressure. Plus, the name alone conjures up images of Hawaiian beaches and hulas, always good for a smile!


In India chai tea is the unofficial breakfast beverage, but you can enjoy its powerful caffeine-boost anytime. It’s also known to combat gas, indigestion and bloating.

Likewise, Ginger tea is a fantastic antidote for mild stomach ailments. It can help sooth your digestive system and some women swear by it as a remedy for menstrual cramps.

Peppermint tea has anti-inflammatory properties and is also a good drink to sip if you experience regular cramping. It’s said to have the power to calm and sooth frazzled nerves, so be sure to keep lots on hand!

Also known to smooth out rough nerves is the heavenly-scented Lemon grass tea. Why not reach for a glass of it next time you’re feeling stressed out? Hint: keep plenty of it at work!


Lemon tea is a distinct variety from lemon grass tea, but along with orange tea it makes a peppy picker-upper, especially when the midafternoon blues hit. Give it a try; I bet that the light, bright citrus aromas will lift up your mood!
