Hangover? Can Tea Be the Cure?

Updated: Sep 20, 2023


Dehydrated? Headache? Tummy upset? Fatigue? Nausea? Hangover from hell? We have all been there!

A great way to hydrate with natural plant power and restore your body's electrolyte balance is with Tea or a Herbal Tisane.


There are differing symptoms for a hangover from headaches, nausea, anxiety or a tummy ache. In addition to feeling full of remorse and feeling very sorry for yourself!

Unfortunately, I cannot help with the latter but I can help with the former symptoms!



The Best Teas for a Hangover


Here are some of the best teas I think help a hangover and restore your natural balance -



  • Mint Chamomile tisane is calming and relaxing, helping to soothe your nerves and promote sleep. Mint has amazing qualities and can help with the hangover and nausea and also helps concentration.





  • .Izu Matcha is high in antioxidants and caffeine which can help to detoxify your body and give you an energy boost. It is also known to protect your liver. Perfect for post-alcohol evening.




  • Mint tisanes are soothing and refreshing and can help to settle your stomach and ease your hangover nausea. It can also help concentration. My Muchos Minty is an amazing blend of spearmint and peppermint - a refreshing hit to cleanse your body and hangover mouth!


  • Hibiscus is a tart and tangy tea similar to cranberry and is high in Vitamin C. This helps boost your immune system and is good for your liver. These minerals naturally present in the plant material can provide a gentle replenishment of electrolytes, contributing to overall balance.




  • Mint Choc Rooibos is a delicious and decadent blend that can help satisfy your sugar cravings without causing you to ingest too much sugar. It is caffeine-free with the added benefit of mint. It is also packed full of antioxidants.

  • Lemon Ginger Zing is an invigorating, cleansing, warming and soothing tisane that can help settle your stomach and ease nausea.

  • Dandelion Delight or Nifty Nettle are also fabulous options. They have a delicious earthy taste and are almost quite sweet but the power of these two plants is amazing - they boost your liver's function and have the added benefit of calming the nervous system and it could alleviate mild anxiety. They also It also contains trace amounts of electrolytes. Nettle is packed with vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K, potassium, iron & magnesium. Dandelion tea is an excellent source of potassium which may help the kidney filter toxins more effectively and improve blood flow. The polysaccharides in dandelion are known to reduce stress on the liver and support its ability to produce bile.

Of course, in an ideal world, the best cure is not to drink so much in the first place ;-) which I often tell myself!

Here are some other tips to help -

  • Drink plenty of water before, during, and after drinking alcohol.

  • Eat a healthy meal before drinking alcohol.

  • Avoid sugary drinks and cocktails.

  • Pace yourself and don't drink too much alcohol too quickly.

  • Drink a glass of water between alcoholic drinks.

  • Take a multivitamin rehydration drink before bed.

  • Sleep!

Look after yourself and keep hydrated!
