“Tila” or linden blossom tea is a herbal tea that is widely used in Spain to treat anxiety. It has a delicate flavour and a powerful calming effect.
One of the most common uses for linden tea is as a good night tea. The herb exerts a soothing effect on the body, helping to calm the nerves and treat sleep disorders as well. If you are suffering from anxiety or insomnia, a cup of this tea before bed can offer a soothing, gentle feeling of relaxation that can help you get a better night’s rest, specially if you sweeten it with a tea spoon of nispero honey, that is also know to have calming properties.
If you have an upset stomach, drinking a cup of tea before bed will not only help to calm your nerves, but it will also help you digest your food more easily. Linden tea can help your digestive system, as in clearing up any problems with the gallbladder and may lessen the effects of excessive flatulence. The effects of the linden flower on the digestive system are well documented.
Another important use of linden tea is its ability to help those suffering common cold and flu sicknesses, helping to boost the immune system due to its high amounts of vitamins and antioxidants. This can even help prevent and fight off sickness. Another great benefit is that it can soothe sore throats related to cough and cold since warm drinks can offer a relaxing effect for a sore or itchy throat. Furthermore, drinking this tea can help reduce fevers, which is also useful during times of sickness as well.
To prepare Linden tea steep one bag in a cup of hot water for 15 to 20 minutes. When you’re using this tea to treat illnesses like a cold or flu, it’s best to drink it at least three times a day. Otherwise, this tasteful tea can be enjoyed hot or cold at any time desired.
You can also enjoy linden tea when you are feeling fine, just to enjoy it’s pleasant and delicate herbal flavour at evening.
