Today, we have gathered our top soothing tea recommendations to remedy an upset tummy.

What are the Best Soothing Teas for an Upset Stomach?


A longtime favourite for digestive distress, peppermint tea contains menthol, which helps relax the digestive tract muscles. The menthol triggers cold receptors that signal the body to create a soothing, calming effect. Sipping hot peppermint tea allows the menthol vapours to penetrate and relieve stomach pain, bloating, gas, and nausea. Look for pure peppermint leaf teas to get the full benefit. The cooling, minty freshness also makes peppermint tea highly enjoyable to drink. Modern science has demonstrated peppermint’s anti-spasmodic properties that calm the stomach, thought to be a native American and European folk remedy for years. Lifeblend Teas offers a premium organic peppermint tea that is lightly sweet and aromatic - a real treat for your belly.


Another natural carminative, ginger, has been used in various healing traditions to settle an upset stomach. The active compounds of gingerols and schools are responsible for ginger's therapeutic effects. They have potent anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that can effectively quell nausea and reduce intestinal spasms, gas, and stomach cramps. For ginger tea, you ideally want to use fresh ginger root rather than dried and ground powder for maximum benefit. At Lifeblend Teas, we carry an exotic ginger tea featuring chunks of fresh ginger root plus lemongrass and hibiscus. The combination creates a naturally sweet brew with a spicy kick - the perfect rescue when your stomach is in turmoil. 


You have likely heard that chamomile tea is pleasant for relaxation and improving sleep, but it is also a secret weapon against stomach distress. The calming compounds within chamomile flowers have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic qualities that can relieve indigestion, heartburn, gas, and nausea. Known to work by stimulating gastric juice production and slowing peristalsis to allow food ample time to digest without causing cramps or pain. A warm cup of chamomile tea before bed is an easy remedy if acid reflux or heartburn has disrupted sleep. However, its soothing benefits apply anytime stomach upset strikes - day or night. Opt for whole-flower chamomile teas to obtain all the delicate floral compounds. Lifeblend Teas carries a mild organic chamomile, perfect for unwinding or easing digestive tension.


Also called melissa, lemon balm is a versatile herb that eases brain and gut issues. Its ability to relax muscles and calm the nervous system lends itself well to soothing stomach discomfort. Research suggests lemon balm inhibits spasms in the digestive tract and protects the gastric mucosa, making it a worthwhile remedy for ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, and overall digestive upset. With a light, lemony flavour, lemon balm tea is highly refreshing and easy to drink. Studies show Lemon Balm Tea exerts anti-nausea effects when an upset stomach has you feeling queasy. Be sure to seek a high-quality whole-leaf lemon balm rather than the ground powder form. Our organic lemon balm tea at Lifeblend Teas retains all the subtle volatile oils that provide calming properties.


As an effective carminative herb, fennel has a long history of use for dyspepsia, bloating, gas, and indigestion relief. The anethole compound within fennel seems to relax the gastrointestinal tract muscles and stimulate enzyme secretions to prevent gas, cramps, and spasms. Fennel tea also helps freshen the breath and reduce bad breath that might be frequently associated with digestive issues. Look for fennel seeds in tea to get the full benefits and lightly licorice-flavoured aroma. Fennel tea, taken after meals, encourages better digestion and feelings of overall stomach comfort. Lifeblend Teas offers a pure organic fennel seed tea that is subtly sweet with a pleasing aroma - the perfect complement to any meal with the potential to upset the stomach.


While many think of dandelion as a weed, this hardy plant is a potent medicinal herb. Dandelion root tea has long been relied upon for its ability to support healthy digestion and liver function. Its chlorogenic acid, taraxacerin, and bitter sesquiterpene lactones stimulate bile flow and gastric acid secretion. It helps break down fats, eliminate toxins, and relieve issues, including heartburn, bloating, gas, and indigestion. Dandelion's bitter taste also encourages the production of digestive enzymes for improved breakdown and absorption of nutrients. For stomach upset - a comforting cup of dandelion root tea may provide just the relief needed. Opt for teas made solely from dandelion root rather than the leaf for a properly therapeutic dose. Lifeblend Teas offers an exceptionally pure dandelion root tea to support healthy digestion.


While not all stomach issues are feminine-specific, raspberry leaf tea has a long tradition of support for women's digestive and reproductive wellness. Modern science is discovering its compounds may benefit overall stomach care as well. Raspberry leaf contains compounds that gently regulate the digestive tract, easing spasms associated with cramps, bloating, gas and diarrhea. With a subtle fruity flavour, this tea is very enjoyable and provides stomach soothing properties. Raspberry's astringency may additionally be beneficial for diarrhea or intestinal infections that can wreak havoc on the stomach. You will find women have long depended upon raspberry leaf tea to maintain a healthy balance throughout their cycles and lives. Raspberry leaf tea blend from Lifeblend Teas combines the delicate leaf with rose petals, hibiscus and citrus notes for a flavorful lift.


Although not technically an herbal tea since it comes from the rooibos plant, this caffeine-free "Red Bush" tea offers comforting support for the stomach. Rooibos contains the flavonoid aspalathin, which reduces oxidative stress and has potent anti-inflammatory properties. By soothing irritation and relaxing muscles in the digestive tract, rooibos tea can relieve cramps, nausea, acid reflux, and indigestion. While relaxing with a cup, rooibos antioxidants deliver additional benefits beyond stomach care. Studies show it may lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and certain cancers. Delicate in flavour with a light caramel note - rooibos tea is easy on the stomach. Lifeblend Teas sources premium organic fair-trade certified rooibos that makes a satisfying and healing brew.
