  • Peppermint tea has a minty and cool flavor. It can help calm an upset stomach if you’re feeling nauseous or generally queasy. It’s also great for bloating and indigestion.
  • Chamomile also works against bloating and nausea. It’s also helpful for irritable bowel syndrome and colic.
  • Fennel tea can help settle stomach pain, including heartburn and bloating.

Sickness

  • Green tea is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. It can also help boost your immune system.
  • Hibiscus tea features useful vitamin C and antibacterial properties.
