Get to know the many health benefits of our teas!
One of the many reasons we love tea so much is that it can work wonders for the human body. In an era where we often turn to modern medicine for all that ails us, we forget about the natural wonders which exist in this world that have been used for centuries to cure all sorts of ailments!
Here at Modestine Tea, we aim to create delicious teas that are not only delightful for your taste buds, but also for your body. We know you might be checking out our different tea options and wondering, “WTF are these ingredients?!” So, we’re going to break some of them down for you to help you better understand what’s going into our tea. Many ingredients in our teas are scientifically proven to have health benefits far and wide. We want to help you feel better, and here’s how – tea by tea.
Chamomile has been used for thousands of years–people can’t deny the healing properties of chamomile! The herb is great for nourishing your digestive system, which can help your tummy if you’re feeling gassy or if your bowel movements are irregular. Additionally, it can soothe painful period cramps. Also, chamomile can help with anxiety and insomnia, so if you want to unwind after a stressful day, you can count on chamomile!
Ginger is a tried and true remedy for stomach problems. It has been used in Asian cultures for thousands of years for helping upset stomachs. It can soothe nausea for pregnant women and people who suffer from motion sickness alike.
Fennel has also been used medicinally for centuries. Studies show that the herb has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s great for helping fight off colds. Plus, like chamomile and ginger, fennel can support your digestive system and make an upset stomach feel better!
Ashwagandha is a herb with a crazy name, we know! It has been used for thousands of years in Indian medicine. It reduces cortisol levels. Cortisol is the body’s stress hormone, so by lowering cortisol levels, ashwagandha can make you feel less stressed. The herb also serves as an anti-inflammatory.
Clove is high in antioxidants which may help the body fight off and prevent chronic diseases. Some studies show that clove can even help prevent cancer (but more research is needed on this!). Clove can also serve antibacterial benefits and may help to regulate your blood sugar.
Cardamom is a herb that helps with digestive issues including heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, and constipation. Additionally, it can help fight off colds and infections!

White tea is a type of tea that tends to have even higher levels of antioxidants than other herbs and teas because it is less processed. It’s also believed to have cancer fighting properties as well as anti-aging properties. White tea can even aid in weight loss!
