Emotionally crappy? Chai or earl grey (any variation), usually as a latte.

Physically crappy? Ginger, lemon, peppermint—usually in some combination.

Emotional crappy is definitely chai or pumpkin for me.

Even better, pumpkin chai! XD

Any tea works when I feel physically crappy. But when I’m sick, I drink chamomile (with or without honey), peppermint, and lemon zinger.

When I’m mentally crappy, I drink a Japanese green tea, usually one of the grassy kinds.

unflavored matcha for either mental of physical distress. also, genmaicha, or sencha
Physical: ginger, or mint blends
Mental/Emotional: Sense of Peace by Zhena’s Gypsy tea, chai, or a brothy green, or Ideally, Seaweed Kombucha(as I can find it).

If it’s more of a physical thing I’ll drink a cup of Yorkshire tea with lemon or an organic green with lemon and honey.

If it’s more emotional Yorkshire tea with milk and sugar.

I love all these answers! It seems like ginger and honey, and chamomile and green tea are quite popular!
When I am feeling sick I find myself reaching for DT’s Cold 911 with a big helping of honey!
When I’ve got a case of the blahs?
I’ll reach for something citrusy like DT Midsummer Night’s Dream.
