Relaxing Tea and Herbals

Looking for relaxing tea? There are many options besides the usual chamomile. Whether you are a traditionalist in your approach to tea or somewhat esoteric, you can find a tea to chill out with.

Before we start with suggestions on relaxing tea, we need to first establish that some people are sensitive to caffeine, and some don’t.

Some tell us “I can’t drink any tea after 3pm or I can’t sleep” while others say, “I love a good cup of green tea before bed”.

So stay away from anything with conventional tea if caffeine causes sleeplessness.
Here are a few popular relaxing herbs

    • Chamomile

If caffeine is not a problem, then there are plenty of choices when it comes to relaxing tea. Oolong is our favourite as it has a lovely soothing fragrance and the “magical” power of making your tummy feeling lots happier after meal. A nice cup of Golden Danchong (photo below) is a great tea to relax with, for example, and to go with a good book just before bed.
