Here are 9 of the best Herbal Teas you should try.
Ten teas for every mood is a graphic from Simply Serene’s Blog.
A Nurse Practitioner from New York, who started blogging to share her passion for healthy living who says no matter the mood, there is a tea out there for you. Some teas give you a natural energy boost, while others promote rest and relaxation. Drinking tea for medicinal purposes dates back centuries to the ancient Shang dynasty in China. It was first introduced to Portuguese missionaries during the 16th Century, spreading quickly throughout Europe and Asia. Drinking tea in early America was largely influenced by the Tea Act, with many Americans swapping out tea for coffee in protest. Although coffee still remains the beverage of choice in America, the tea industry has exploded, offering an array of diverse brews to match each and every mood.

Holland and Barrett sell the Heath and Heather Fennel Tea which is fresh and herbal, the ideal way to help maintain your well-being at any time of the day. A wonderful addition to your herbal, caffeine-free tea collection.
- Dandelion Root Tea – this can help relieve symptoms of heartburn and has a lovely soothing effect on your digestive tract. It is also rich in vitamins and minerals. Clipper Teas make an Organic Dandelion Tea which is naturally rich in potassium and caffeine free. Used through the centuries to purify, cleanse and restore.
- Camomile Tea – my favorite last drink of the day as it has a soothing calming effect. It can also help reduce stomach cramps. Whittard makes a classically comforting and naturally sweet, infusion of camomile flowers. It’s been used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory and some even claim that it can help beat the annual hay fever sneezes. With its sun-drenched warmth and a fragrant floral finish, they call it a cup of pure relaxation.
