The Health Benefits of Tea You Never Knew About

The Teatonics teas in the Holiday Box are chock full of ingredients that can focus, strengthen, and relax your mind and body. Inspired by their healing brews, we’ve complied a list of  ingredients found in the Teatonics teas from your Holiday Box and on the Shop that do more for you than just fill your cup.


Yerba Mate increases energy levels with its natural combination of caffeine and theobromine, without the jitteriness and crash commonly caused by coffee. Yerba Mate is extremely popular in South America, where it is lauded for its high concentration of necessary vitamins and minerals.


Rooibos boosts your immune system with its high Vitamin C and antioxidant content. Bonus: it’s caffeine free!

Licorice can relieve an upset stomach and has been shown to ease peptic ulcers. It has also been used to treat cold and flu symptoms.

Cacao is high in antioxidants, amino acids, and provides a light dose of caffeine without the jitteriness of coffee. Like chocolate, cacao contains theobromine, a natural stimulant.


Hops, when blended into tea, are said to have a calming effect and aid in digestion.

Camomile has been used for ages as a nerve-relaxant. It’s also been shown to have anti-anxiety properties—perfect for a bedtime cup or to relieve a stress-induced stomach ache. Camomile’s anti-inflammatory properties and high antioxidant content may protect against heart disease and freshen skin.

Elderflowers have a high vitamin C content and are thought to be useful for fighting cold and flu symptoms. Elderflowers also contain quercetin, which is believed to help reduce cholesterol levels.


Turmeric has a wide repertoire of supposed health benefits, including its ability to protect against Alzheimer’s disease and blood clots. It’s also said to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.

Ginger is most known for helping relieve nausea, but ginger tea can also reduce bloating and improve blood circulation.
