Cooling teas to help hot flushes

With the hot weather we are experiencing right now it can be hard to know what to drink that is healthy. I like to infuse my herbal teas in sparkling water with a little ice, which are just delicious and refreshing.

Here are a few herbs to consider for their cooling properties:

  1. Peppermint (Mentha piperita): Peppermint tea is widely known for its cooling and calming effects. It can help with digestion and is often used to relieve nausea.

  2. Spearmint (Mentha spicata): Similar to peppermint, spearmint has a milder flavor and is also known for its cooling properties. It can be enjoyed on its own or blended with other herbs.

  3. Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla): Chamomile tea has a gentle, soothing effect and is known for its ability to promote relaxation. It is often consumed before bedtime.

  4. Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis): Lemon balm tea has a mild lemon flavor and is known for its calming properties. It can help reduce stress and anxiety.

  5. Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa): Hibiscus tea has a tart and refreshing taste. It is rich in antioxidants and is known for its cooling effect on the body.

  6. Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia): Lavender tea has a floral and aromatic flavor. It is renowned for its calming and relaxing properties, making it a great choice for winding down.

  7. Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare): Fennel tea has a mild licorice flavor and is known for its digestive benefits. It can be enjoyed both for its taste and its cooling effect.

  8. Coriander (Coriandrum sativum): Coriander tea, made from coriander seeds, has a subtle citrusy flavor and is known for its cooling effect on the body.

  9. Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum): Cilantro tea, made from fresh cilantro leaves, has a mild and refreshing taste. It is believed to have cooling properties and can be a great addition to detoxifying blends.

  10. Nettle (Urtica dioica): Nettle tea is made from the leaves of the nettle plant. While it may seem counterintuitive, nettle tea is believed to have a cooling effect and is rich in nutrients.

You can experiment with single herbs or create your own blends by combining different herbs to suit your taste preferences and desired
