I have started to experiment with tea hoping it would help my anxiety. So far, I have only tried ginger tea, and it seems to be doing good so far. What works best for you? What kind of results do you see? How long does it last for?

It wouldn't have occurred to me to try tea, but if it did, I would research it, instead of asking and trying at random.

Curious that a substance with caffeine would alleviate anxiety.

Many herbal teas (such as ginger tea, like the OP addressed) don't contain caffeine.

OP, I like chamomile tea for relaxing.

I also like a tea that DOES contain caffeine - Earl Grey tea, with milk and a little sugar. It's a special treat I give myself some evenings and it's definitely comforting.

I was going to also suggest chamomile. I think that even just the actual act of preparing the tea and taking the time to drink it in a leisurely manner can be helpful. I don't say it would be a cure but it can be very helpful and relaxing and anti anxiety.

Valerian root, it's a natural anti-anxiety herb. You can try the tea or it comes in capsule form. Either one is very effective, but full disclosure...It smells really bad!! You can get it at health stores or online of course.

Chamomile tea is my go to when I need to relax. I really like the taste and it soothes me.
