Teas to Relieve Stress and Tension
Are you looking for a natural way to ease stress and tension? Our stress-relief teas can help you relax by promoting calm and easing stress.
Taking time for ourselves, even to relax with a cup of tea, can help soothe your mind and body. Here at Fusion Teas, we like to enjoy some downtime with stress relief teas. In addition to the ingredients in teas and herbal tisanes that work directly to reduce stress, other aspects of drinking tea can also play a part in relaxing the mind and body.
The practice of mindfulness – relaxed awareness of the moment – may play a key role in soothing the mind and relieving stress. Focus your attention on the present and let the past and future worries slip away.
You don’t need a complicated tea ritual. Choose your tea, a favorite cup, and be mindful as you prepare and drink your tea. This ritual can be relaxing in itself – and even boost the effects of the calming properties of your tea. See our article on Simple Morning Tea Rituals to learn more.
One of the reasons tea rituals have been embraced by people around the world is because tea promotes relaxation. From the English tradition of afternoon tea to Japan’s highly formalized tea ceremonies, the traditions of brewing and drinking tea can also help relieve stress.
Adding stress-reducing teas into your day can help encourage other healthy habits. Start (or keep) eating nutritious foods, set a bedtime routine, spend time with loved ones — all may help improve your ability to deal with stress and reduce its effects.

Here are a few of our favorite teas for stress relief:
Stress Relief Teas
Harmony Tulsi Herbal Tea
Popularly known as holy basil, tulsi tea has been used for centuries as a general tonic for wellbeing. It’s valued for its properties as an adaptogen and mood balancer.
Harmony Tulsi is complex, yet balanced. Lemon verbena and rose offer high notes while spicy ginger and cinnamon provide depth. Apple smooths out the flavor, creating a harmonious blend. Step back and see the balance in life’s complexities.
Holy Detox Tulsi Tea
From bright minty aromas to clear citrus flavors and a lingering floral aftertaste, this blend is layered and fresh. Green herbaceous notes of Holy Basil and lemon myrtle are balanced with the depth and tartness of rosehips and spearmint.
Chamomile Vanilla Bean Herbal Tea
Chamomile may help you relax and ease tension. Its calming effects may be attributed to an antioxidant called apigenin. This well-loved herbal blend is a gentle way to settle in for the evening. Our golden herbal blend offers a soft vanilla aroma and delivers a dessert-inspired sweetness. The tang of lemongrass is evened out by the mild floral flavor of chamomile. Hand-cut vanilla bean, organic honeybush and coconut add depth.
Peppermint Herbal Tea
Similar to chamomile, peppermint has great benefits in relaxing the muscles, and it may help reduce irritability. Peppermint herbal tea is a timeless classic. Clean and vibrant, this is our go-to herb whenever we need to clear our head. Peppermint tea is a simple herb, yet bursting with flavor. Bright notes of peppermint and a soft creaminess fill each sip. And the mouthfeel is smooth, with deep earthy undertones.
Organic Clouds & Mist Green Tea
L-theanine, an amino acid, commonly found in green tea, provides strong calming effects. It may help relax your mind and body and reduce stress. Our Clouds and Mist green tea emits sweet aromas of purple grapes, apples and plums. The pale lemon-yellow infusion smells nutty and buttery, whispering of the creamy mouthfeel yet to come. The strikingly smooth flavor contains no astringency whatsoever.
With some soothing teas and simple healthy habits, you can sip your way to calm. See all of our Stress Relief Teas and perhaps find a new favorite tea for your morning or evening tea ritual!
