Happy Tummy with Tea

What tea to drink when your tummy isn’t feeling so well?

Chamomile                 calms your tummy muscles when you are nervous – when you have butterflies in the stomach
Marshmallow Root          anti-inflammatory
Catnip                                    relieves cramping
Fennel                                   prevents & relieves gas

Particularly green tea, seems to be the tea that some are sensitive too. In Chinese herbalism, green tea is cooling. If your body is already on the cool side, either by birth or sickness, green tea may give you a nauseating feeling. In this case, try drinking black tea (you can always make it very light) or Pu-erh. Pu-erh is sometimes called the “Old Man’s Tea” because it is gentle to the stomach.

Natural chemicals in tea, such as caffeine can cause tummy upsets. This is also why some add milk to their tea, to neutralise the acidity in tea.
