Teas to Support Digestion on Thanksgiving Day

The turkey, the stuffing, the mashed potatoes, the casseroles, and of course the post-dinner pie…it’s easy to go overboard when there’s a table filled with tasty home-cooked dishes. While all of that comfort food may taste incredible, almost everyone is familiar with the not-so-nice feelings of bloating and indigestion that follow a massive meal.

These soothing teas will aid digestion and soothe full stomachs* ­— perfect for sipping with your loved ones after a hearty Thanksgiving feast.
