What are some of your favorite hot herbal teas? I use peppermint, camomile (sweetened with some honey), and Celestial Season Sleepy Time. My wife would not try any hot tea until her throat and stomach issues and my encouragement validated by her doctor. She likes the honey vanilla camomile tea.

Hard as I try, I just can’t like foo foo teas. I can like plain old Lipton once in awhile, but I really just prefer hot water with a slice of lemon….any citrus really.

I got started while searching for natural ways to reduce stress and to help sleep. I have depression and thoughts of suicide since puberty, PTSD from things I experienced in the military, Aspergers (form of autism diagnosed at age 42), and work rotating shifts at a hospital. I work in a hospital boiler room and am responsible for the entire hospital’s HVAC system, isolation rooms ventilation, medical gas system, fire alarm system, water treatment, elevators (over 20 across the campus), and on nights and weekends there is only one person to cover the entire facility. There are times I’m so stressed after work that I can’t sleep for hours. I’ve used peppermint tea because it helps with my stomach. Camomile helps relax. Sleepy time tea has various herbs to help settle down for sleep.

I keep and drink Yogi brand lemon ginger tea when I'm not feeling well, was a good thing to use when I had Covid (twice).
I also think green tea is an herbal tea and I drink both the caff and decaf versions of green tea, not daily.

Over the years I've tried quite a few herbal teas and didn't stick with them, chamomile and Red Zinger are two of those.

My wife swears by Yogi Teas before bed most nights. Her favorite is Soothing Caramel Bedtime. Every once in awhile I will have a cup with her and it is very relaxing. They have quite a few varieties. Maybe one for you to look into is Yogi Stress Relief line with several flavor profiles. Good luck!

I am not a fan of hot tea but my husband is. He likes Bigelow Green tea with peach and Green tea with lemon. Sweetened with 2 tsp sugar. He tried the Honey Vanilla chamomile and did not like it all. Next time I am going to by him Bigelow green tea with pomegranate. Also if you boil bay leaves (bay leaf tea) this also helps with Stomach issues. A friend of mine swears by it.

I love fennel tea, but it's one of those things people either love or hate (tastes like black licorice).

I also really like ginger tea. My go-to is one teabag each of green tea and ginger.

Chamomile and rooibos once in a while.

My daughters enjoy peppermint and spearmint.

Many people aren't aware that the various herbs and components in herbal teas have specific medicinal properties, and can have positive or negative effects on health conditions as well as interact with medicines. For instance, teas that contain licorice root must be used with caution and only for short periods. Peppermint contains menthol, which is more benign but opens respiratory passages. I forget, but IIRC, chamomile is contra-indicated for some condition. Ginger has good effects in general.

I get a Chinese tea called "kidney, liver, mind" which has an interesting flavor that is much milder than the traditional medicinal teas and decoctions. I'll use dandelion root, corn silk, and others as needed.

ginger tea, I bought a box of assorted fruit teas & I only like the peach & lemon ones. The apple is nasty.

I'm especially fond of Bigelow's Lemon Ginger herbal tea. Peppermint tea upsets my stomach despite its reputation as a stomach soother but I've found the Lemon Ginger to be soothing for me. I also have recently enjoyed Celestial Seasoning's Sangria Zinger.
