Best Tea for Bloating

We all have them—those puffy, bloated days when nothing seems to fit.

Your pants are tight, your shoes a bit snug, and you just feel kind of blah.

You want nothing more than a quick fix to flatten that belly. But where do you turn?

Never fear. Help is on the way.

There is a wide world of tea out there that will bring you some much-needed relief—and fast.

But with so many teas to choose from and an overwhelming amount of supposedly helpful information out there, how do you know which ones are the best to beat that bloat?

Teas made from leaves in the mint family, like peppermint and lemon balm, or those made with traditional healing herbs like ginger or fennel will get to work quickly.

And when you combine those healing herbs with soothing chamomile or mineral-rich green tea, you get a double dose of comfort.

What Causes Bloating?

Before you can fix something, it’s helpful to know what causes it in the first place.

You know the feeling, that uncomfortable, and sometimes even painful, puffy gut. But why, exactly, does it happen?

Bloat is a response that stems from a multitude of causes.

We’re familiar with the most common suspects—gas, constipation, and menstrual water retention.

But eating too quickly, or eating foods high in salt, refined carbs, and sugars can also cause your body to hoard fluids and lead to a similar effect.

Your body is doing its best. We all need a little help from time to time though. And tea, especially when served hot, is the perfect vehicle to deliver this aid and get you feeling like your old self.

Want to Beat that Bloat? Try a Cup of These:

A quick internet search of the best teas to beat bloating can lead you to way too many answers to even be remotely helpful.

The natural diuretic of dandelion root tea, the soothing comfort of chamomile, and the antioxidant-rich earthy matcha green are all good options. But, when you want fast relief, what are your best choices?


The value of peppermint tea should not be underestimated.

Not only does it taste good, but it can also soothe a number of ailments, especially those of the digestive sort.

Peppermint oil is known to relax the gut. And one cup of peppermint tea will give you a big enough dose of those healing essential oils to make you feel better.

Peppermint is loaded with compounds known as flavonoids. And, these flavonoids feast on gut bacteria that can lead to gas and bloating.

This makes peppermint tea one of the absolute best choices to flatten that belly.

And, not only does peppermint tea do a fantastic job of getting rid of bloat, but this multitasking mint can also give your metabolism a boost.

You lose the initial bloated belly and burn more calories in the process.

Since peppermint tea is naturally caffeine-free, you can enjoy this tasty beverage any time of day or night.

Add one or two cups to your daily routine to beat that puff and stay comfortable in last year’s jeans.

For even more bloat-beating power, try a tea that combines refreshing peppermint with bacteria-neutralizing chamomile.

Ginger has long been used as a treatment for gastrointestinal issues. It helps to speed up the digestive process, which allows your stomach to empty faster and reduces the discomfort of cramps, gas, and bloating.

One way ginger accomplishes this is by stimulating the stomach to produce more gastric juices.

As a result, your body can break down proteins faster, leaving less time for these bloat culprits to cause you trouble.

Ginger also helps relax muscles allowing gas to get out of the way much easier, relieving that painful pressure.

With its sharp, spicy flavor, ginger tea pairs really well with lemon and honey. You’ll notice quite a few benefits when you make this tea a part of your lifestyle.

Besides being gut-friendly, its anti-inflammatory properties make it the perfect warm brew for a sore throat or sinus infection.


Fennel is another traditional natural remedy. It can relieve stomach discomfort, get your digestive system moving, and even wake up a sluggish bowel.

Like ginger, fennel relaxes the smooth muscles of your digestive tract and relaxes spasms. So, those painful cramps will stop. And gas will move along too. This wonder herb will also freshen your breath.

You can make your own fennel tea by adding a tablespoon of fennel seeds to a cup of boiling water.

You’ll have a delicious beverage that will bring fast relief. But when you want to give your body a stronger jumpstart that will give you a lasting effect, a quick one-day cleanse might be what you need.

Lemon Balm

Don’t let the sweet, citrusy flavor of lemon balm fool you. It is actually a member of the mint family. And it is definitely one of your top contenders to beat bloat.

The minty properties of lemon balm help relieve gas and bloating. It has been a longstanding European treatment for gastrointestinal discomforts and is actually included in an over-the-counter liquid digestive supplement.

Like peppermint, lemon balm is full of flavonoids that will reduce bloat and the discomfort it brings.

Lemon balm is highly recommended for bloating caused by stress.

When those hectic days and rich meals keep you up at night, try a cup of Midnight Dream Tea.

With chamomile and lemon balm to soothe your gut and catnip to lead you to a restful sleep, you’ll wake up refreshed and bloat free.

With today’s busy lifestyle full of convenience foods and deadlines, occasional bloating is simply a matter of fact.
