5 Herbal Teas for Anxiety

Do you suffer from stress and anxiety? If you're looking for herbal tea remedies to help with anxiety symptoms, we've listed them below.

Green Tea

This Eastern remedy for stress is packed with antioxidants and a compound called L-theanine. It can lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate. Look for high-quality brands and drink decaffeinated blends if you have it before bedtime. 

Valerian Root Tea

This tea, commonly made from the root of the Valeriana officinalis plant, is commonly used as a sedative. In fact, it is even approved by the German government for mild sleep disorders. Because of its sleep-inducing effect, it shouldn't be taken before driving or operating equipment. 

Lemon Balm

Also known as Melissa officinalis, this highly scented and pleasant-tasting herb has been used since the Middle Ages to combat an anxious mood. However, studies suggest that large amounts can actually raise anxiety. It's best to start with one cup a day and build up from there.

Chamomile Tea

The flowers of Matricaria recutita, a relative of ragweed, are stocked on most shelves as an anxiety cure staple. This tea is very safe, with few to no side effects or interactions with other medications. It has a mild, pleasant taste and goes well with honey and lemon.


Used since ancient times in Polynesia, teas made of Piper methysticin have gained worldwide popularity. This powerful anti-anxiety tea has been found useful for stress-induced and social anxiety. However, because Kava-Kava has such a strong effect, it may interact with some medications. Be sure to consult with your doctor before consuming if you are currently taking any medications.
