      Mint, spearmint and peppermint can help improve mental focus and alertness by relieving fatigue and relaxing your muscles. Mint teas have the added benefit of providing you with minty fresh breath.

      This well-know anxiety and tension relieving tea also contains several active substances that have anti-inflammatory properties. Often enjoyed with honey instead of sugar, others prefer adding some lemon juice for a tart citrus edge.

      Green Tea and Matcha

      Green tea contains a remarkable bundle of potentially healthy benefits. Green tea contains high-levels of antioxidants along with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial substances.

      If you find the taste too spicy, try adding some honey for a wonderfully warming tea. Adding a bit of ginger to other herbal teas is a wonderful way to add some warmth and spice to their taste.
