When feeling stressed, people may want to reach for a cup of tea. Research found that a cup of tea reduces stress, not just by drinking it, but also because of the calming effect of putting the tea kettle on. Furthermore, decaffeinated green tea also can calm a person and encourage sleep. Even black tea has been found to relieve stress by lowering cortisol levels when a person is faced with stressful situations. Chamomile tea is also an age-old medicinal herb that has been used as a remedy for numerous conditions, including asthma, nervousness, sleep and stomach ailments, and as a treatment for colds. It, too, may help reduce stress.
