Whether you’ve had a heavy meal, you’re contending with acid reflux or just simply want some help soothing your stomach and improving your digestive system, a cup of tea can be a major asset. Tea can aid the body as it digests food, and is far more beneficial than reaching for those sugary or alcoholic drinks. It should be the first drink to reach for if you’re looking to find both quick digestive relief and longer-term digestive health. But which teas to reach for? Read on to learn about eight super healthy, vitamin-packed loose leaf teas for digestion and immune health available at The Tea Haus.

1. Sencha Echinacea To Boost Immune System
As an antioxidant powerhouse and a go-to for your immune system, green tea is the staple in many tea drinkers’ cupboards. Thanks to its unique and exacting preparation process that prevents oxidation and maintains taste and freshness, sencha style green tea offers a variety of benefits: antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-infection.
Sencha Echinacea is among The Tea Haus’ top loose leaf tea picks for easing an upset stomach and strengthening the immune system. Supercharged with echinacea — an antimicrobial agent often used to fight colds and promote healing, this loose leaf teas for digestion is ideal at any time of the day, especially now as the temperature drops.
2. All-Weather Tea To Manage Bloating & Stomach Pain
We’re all guilty of indulging in enticing treats that can be a bit harsh on our stomach — bloating, stomach pain, nausea . . . we’ve all been there! So to help during those times when it’s just impossible to say no to a spoonful of raw cookie dough or to a pint of ice cream, there is a natural way to ease the digestive system, relieve stomach pain and eliminate bloating. Look no further than a cup of fennel tea.
The Tea Haus’ All-Weather Tea is a wonderful warming blend of mint, fennel, eucalyptus leaves, anise and licorice root — the best blend for digestion. A cup of All Weather Tea does more than simply provide soothing relaxation: both mint and fennel are proven to help ease the muscles of the digestive tract. Need another reason to brew a cup of this amazing blend? Fennel and mint are great to enjoy after a meal as they can help reduce bad breath.
3. Lemon Grove To Energize The Body
Well-known for their potent doses of vitamin C, citrus-based teas can promote better energy levels, immune health, blood flow and more. But sipping citrus tea has far more added benefits than you might think. It helps your body better absorb antioxidants and essential nutrients such as iron, zinc and magnesium.
If you still aren’t sure of which citrusy blend to choose, Lemon Grove, a well-loved full-bodied Ceylon with lemon peel, calendula and sunflower blossoms is a great loose leaf tea for digestion and immune health. Brew a cup of Lemon Grove to kickstart your morning, keep you energized and your stomach calm throughout the day.
4. Elderberry To Support Gut Health
Don’t underestimate the health benefits of these tiny berries! Elderberries are extremely high in antioxidants and are also anti-inflammatory. Elderberries are also super high in fibre, meaning they support your digestive system and, seeing as how almost 70% of your immune system is located in the gut, supporting your gut health will also have a positive impact on your immune system over time.
Add a splash of a fruity taste to your tea collection with an Elderberry blend. Sweeten it with honey for an easy go-to drink, or infuse a teaspoon of this blend with your green tea for a nourishing, delicious dose of antioxidants.
5. Pitta Balance To Reduce Inflammation
Naturally uplifting, lemongrass is also an immune-boosting agent. Often found in herbal blends, it can help to ease digestion and reduce inflammation. Lemongrass is also high in vitamins A and C, which are both keys to supporting the body’s immune function.
Ready to try a lemongrass-infused tea? Pitta Balance from The Tea Haus is not to be missed. This herbal blend belongs to a line of the Ayurvedic infusions, which is known for its immunity-boosting properties. Good for any hour of the day, a cup of Pitta Balance will keep you cool while reducing inflammation for a healthy and strong body. The best part, this blend is certified organic as well.
6. Kapha Balance To Combat Fatigue
From alleviating stomach pain and indigestion to reducing inflammation and feelings of nausea, ginger tea is a must in any tea drinker’s arsenal. Another bonus to ginger tea, its warm spice can naturally open up your nasal passages to mitigate the effects of colds and flus whenever you start to feel under the weather.
The Tea Haus’ Kapha Balance is not your average cup of ginger tea, as it’s a powerful blend of Rooibos, fennel, organic ginger, holy basil (Tulsi), and cardamom. This rich, spicy and robust tea is sure to wake up your senses while helping you combat fatigue in the colder months.
7. Dandelion Herb & Root To Detoxify
Dandelion root is said to be diuretic, which means that it increases the amount of water you release through urinating. This extra water output can help to relieve bloating and detoxify the kidneys and bladder. Dandelion root tea has also been historically used to improve appetite and relieve constipation. Amazing, isn’t it?
The Tea Haus’ Dandelion Herb & Root blend is made from the purest and richest ingredients — its bitterness can be sweetened to taste with honey or agave nectar. No matter the season, a cup of dandelion root tea makes a healthy and enjoyable addition to your daily routine.
8. Wellness Booster For An Immune Boost
Heading into this fall and winter, cold and flu prevention is crucial for public health and for personal wellbeing. Not only is a cold or the flu an interruption to your daily routine, but it’s also a sign of an immune system in need. A weak immune system can be linked with poor sleep, poor digestion and high levels of stress, so addressing these symptoms before they get worse can help bolster your immunity in a powerful way.
For those times that your immune system needs a boost, check out The Tea Haus’ Wellness Booster — an aromatic and soothing blend of peppermint, lemongrass, cardamom, fennel, and ginger — a great source of anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting herbs and spices.
