5 Delicious Herbal Tea Recipes for Relaxation and Wellness

Herbal Tea Recipes for Relaxation and Wellness

With our everyday lives often hectic and stressful, sometimes all we’re looking for is a moment of tranquillity and calm to switch off, relax, and recharge. While you can find plenty of beverages to boost your energy, it’s a little more challenging to find ones that help you relax. Enter herbal teas. They can help you find some sanctuary in the chaos and provide you with additional health boosts. 

So, let’s take a trip into herbal teas and five tasty recipes to help you find relaxation and wellness without needing to prepare some complex concoction.

What is Herbal Tea?

First of all, though, let’s have a look at what herbal tea is. Despite its name, herbal tea does not contain actual tea but is made by steeping herbs, spices, flowers, or other plant materials in hot water. They are caffeine-free and can be enjoyed any time of the day without worrying about keeping you up. From calming chamomile to invigorating peppermint, there’s a wide range of herbal teas available that are as diverse as the plants used to make them. Many tisanes are blends of different herbs and flowers to create unique flavour profiles and health benefits, so you can customize your own to get the most out of it and change things up easily.

Chamomile Lavender Tea

Picture yourself in a cozy corner, wrapped in a soft blanket, a good book and a nice, steaming cup of tea. Feeling relaxed already? Now make this cup one of chamomile lavender tea, and you will have a perfect recipe to escape the hustle and bustle and just relax and calm down. Chamomile has been known to soothe nerves and help people calm down for centuries.

If you want to steep yourself a cup of this elixir, add one tablespoon each of dried chamomile flowers and lavender buds to hot water for 5-7 minutes. Strain it into your mug, curl up and feel the day’s stress melt away. This infusion is great as a bedtime tea, so you can let its gentle embrace lead you into a restful night of sleep.

Peppermint Lemon Balm Tea

If you want to shed some of the day’s stress but feel refreshed instead, then peppermint lemon balm tea is your perfect concoction. Peppermint has a refreshing aroma that feels cooling and refreshing at the same time and is known to help with digestive unrest and lift your spirits. Lemon balm, also part of the mint family, has a lightly lemony flavour and is known to calm nerves and help unwind. Put together, you get this great and harmonious blend that can soothe your stomach and give you both calm and focus to take a deep breath, let the stress fall off and be ready to tackle what’s next. 

To prepare this delicious brew, take a handful of fresh peppermint leaves and lemon balm and let them steep in hot water for 5-10 minutes. Incorporate a nice cup into your evening routine, and feel the tension melt away. Unwind and enjoy the evening.

Ginger Turmeric Tea

If you want something that’s soothing but has a bit more excitement in it, then ginger turmeric tea has got your number. Ginger has been used in traditional medicine for millennia to help with a whole range of ailments, from nausea to arthritis, which is why most over-the-counter anti-nausea medications contain ginger to this day. Turmeric adds its vibrant colour and earthy flavour to the lightly spicy kick of ginger. It has also been a traditional ingredient to combat inflammation and oxidative stress for hundreds if not thousands of years. Allow them to work their magic together, and you get a potent brew that can calm your mind while also helping soothe your stomach and help battle inflammation.

Grab some fresh ginger slices and turmeric powder and simmer them in hot water for 10-15 minutes to allow their rich flavours to come together and bond. Strain it into a mug and, if you want, add a little bit of honey for some sweetness. You can enjoy this mixture as part of your morning routine or on a chilly evening and warm your soul while letting it work its wonders inside.

Rosehip and Hibiscus Tea

Rosehip and hibiscus are the stars of this recipe, working together in a deeply red herbal tea that’s as visually appealing as it is tasty. As the name suggests, rosehips are part of roses; their fruit, to be precise, is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants. This makes them a potent supporter of your immune health and is also great for your skin. On the other hand, hibiscus is a bit more tart and tangy and is also part of the antioxidant family, but adding help for high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Together, they create a tasty, refreshing, nourishing, and refreshing elixir, helping you melt stress and emotional tightness.

Simply steep a handful of dried rosehips and hibiscus flowers in hot water for 5-7 minutes and strain the ruby-red liquid into a cup. Rosehip and hibiscus are herbal teas that can be enjoyed at any time of the day without adverse side effects, leaving you feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

Green Tea with Holy Basil (Tulsi)

We know that we had said that herbal teas don’t contain any tea, but this recipe is just too good to pass up. If your spirits need a lift and your senses feel like they could use a boost, green tea infused with holy basil is a match made in herbal heaven. Green tea has long been known for its antioxidant properties, thanks to polyphenols and catechins, promoting heart health and boosting metabolism. In contrast, holy basil, also known as Tulsi, has been a staple in Ayurvedic medicine for ages, helping your body adapt to stress and promoting mental clarity. As a team, they work to give you a great balance between soothing and energizing that’ll help you get ready to take on the world. 

Steep green tea leaves and fresh Tulsi leaves in hot water for 2-3 minutes, letting the flavours come together and infuse into the water. This tasty concoction works best in the morning to kickstart your day or if you need a pick-me-up midday to restore some vitality.
