The types of teas for different moods

Feeling sad, stressed or disturbed? A tea can boost your brain and alertness and give you the much needed energy according to the mood.

Lavender tea is the best tea to induce sleep. It slows down blood circulation, nervous system activity and promotes relaxation that puts you to sound and undisturbed sleep.

Chamomile tea has shown to have positive effects on reducing stress and anxiety. It increases blood flow to the brain and counteracts the effect of stress hormone cortisol.

Tart cherry tea is effective against restlessness. It slows down blood flow just like how lavender tea works. This way, you feel relaxed and rested.

Black tea or chai can wake you up, no wonder why it is the staple morning tea all over the world and exclusively in India. It contains natural stimulants like caffeine that is quite a wakeup call.

Peppermint tea can give you some emotional wellness and keep you calm. If you are suffering from an emotional breakdown or broken, sip peppermint tea and you should feel better.

Feeling depressed? Before you move your hand to grab your anti-depressants, try out lemongrass tea. The essential oils in lemongrass tea helps to calm down the senses and works great as an anti-depressant.

Ginger tea has mood-boosting benefits that causes improvement in energy levels and also gives a feeling of warmth and comfort.

Indian masala chai can cheer you up instantly and give you a positive and happy feeling. This chai is great when you have some serious office to be done. The spice like ginger, cardamom, clove, etc. in the masala chai helps promote positivity and generates serotonin.

Mood swings can sometimes make you feel angry and develop temporary hatred towards everything. Orange or lemon tea can boost up your mood and reduce the anger. More than the taste, the scent itself will calm you down.

When you are feeling exhausted, look no further than green tea. Green tea contains L-theanine that increases alpha brain waves, similar to what happens when you meditate.
