Chamomile

This tea is thought to help lift our moods, while calming us.  I enjoy chamomile tea at the end of my day because it helps to relax me and makes it easier for me to fall asleep. Amazingly, this tea can also aid us in treating depression.  According to self.com, A study was done in which depressed patients were given chamomile-extract capsules for eight weeks and there was a 20 to 30 percent reduction in symptoms of depression.

Hibiscus

This type of tea is thought to help boost our immune system, so it’s excellent to drink when we’re sick.  It’s great at providing vitamin C.  And those of us who are worried about wrinkles, this tea is thought to aid in the production of collagen.  

Green

This tea is great for so many reasons.  It’s known to help us slim down, and a certain compound found in tea may slow down our weight gain from some fatty foods by up to 45 percent! The tea also helps us to wake up without having our bodies crash a couple hours later.  If I want to skip coffee in the morning, I’ll have some green tea because it helps to both relax me and keep me alert.  

Peppermint

This tea helps decrease bloating and stomach aches.  If you’re sick with a stomach ache or have a specific stomach condition, it is advised to sip some of this tea when you’re feeing uncomfortable.  This tea is thought to help relax the body.
