Linden Flower Tea
Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Famously used to soothe nerves and relieve anxiety, the Linden Flower can now be enjoyed as a beautiful herbal tea through The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. As the name might suggest, Linden Flower boasts a delicious floral flavour with an equally enticing aroma. Aside from aiding with mental health, our Linden Flower Tea can support physical health, too.
In fact, it has long been used to treat digestive issues, as well as nausea and coughs. Incidentally, Linden Flower can often be found in cough syrups, but if that’s not to your taste, which we imagine it isn’t, why not buy our tea instead? Not only can this brew help with numerous cold symptoms, but it likewise tastes fantastic, and is a perfect way to start off your morning, if not your entire day.
Linden flowers can be found growing on a variety of trees and bushes belonging to the Tilia genus, commonly called Lime Trees. However, contrary to popular belief, they are not closely related to the citrus fruit of the same name (if this is what you are looking for then please consider our Lime Tea with Peel). The Tilia species grows predominantly in the northern hemisphere, which includes much of Europe, and North America, as well as many parts of Asia.
Trees of the Tilia genus can grow up to 90 feet and may live up to 1,000 years according to some records. The flowers produced on these trees during the late spring are the most commonly used part, primarily because of the potency of Linden Flower Tea. This tea has become increasingly popular owing to its incredible health-promoting properties. To find out how this tea can improve your everyday way of life, please see our health benefits section below.

Health Benefits of Linden Flower Tea: Containing high concentrations of phytonutrients, flavonoids, and other diaphoretic substances. These components can help stimulate sweating, thus helping avid consumers to break a fever during times of illness. In addition to this, Linden Flower Tea addresses other symptoms of cold and flu such as inflamed or swollen membranes throughout the mouth and respiratory tracts. This, in turn, can reduce coughing and help with sore throats.
Furthermore, if you are suffering from an upset stomach, bloating, constipation, or cramping, consider drinking this beverage for its wonderful blend of compounds and chemicals which can potentially reduce gastrointestinal discomfort.
Last but not least, according to a study published in the July 2008 issue of the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology”, Linden flowers can reduce anxious behaviour in laboratory animals. While further human-based studies are required, this early research indicates that, after centuries of consuming Linden Flower Tea for soothing the nervous system, our ancestors were actually on to something.
