In brief: Herbal tea may relax

You or make you feel good for a short trimester, but it is not a viable treatment for depression.
Reach out to a psychologist and/or a psychiatrist and develop a treatment plan. Usually, I would start with psychotherapy and add medication if the depression does not lift after a 10 - 12 sessions. If someone is severely depressed or suicidal, start with medication right away.
