Ever wondered what teas are best for naturally treating heartburn? Here's your list of teas for natural heartburn relief.Teas prepackaged or freshly prepared are both natural options for treating heartburn, acid reflux, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), just avoid any teas that contain caffeine. Caffeine relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) which can cause acid reflux. The teas below are naturally caffeine-free and their different healing properties should be considered when used to treat your heartburn symptoms. I’ve broken the different teas up into three sections. Mucilage teas coat and protect. HCL increasing teas help the stomach produce more acid to help the LES stay closed. And a section of other teas that help in various ways.

Mucilage Teas to Coat the Esophagus and Naturally Treat Heartburn

Mucilage teas can coat the esophagus and stomach to protect from the irritation of stomach acid.

    Hello. Are there current studies about this that can be backed by science? My husband is somewhat skeptical and would like to know how much tea and how long before he sees the relief of heartburn. I know every person is different but how long generally would it be and where could we find out?

    Thanks!

      Hello Sarah, relief from heartburn using tea is an alternative method for short-term relief. Certain teas help coat the throat to protect against acid irritation. Herbal remedies are normally used instead of or in addition to acid reflux medication such as Tums. Herbal teas are not a long term treatment plan suitable for chronic conditions. Diet and lifestyle changes are typically needed when treating chronic conditions and some may require long term use of heartburn medication. Your doctor, a gastroenterologist, dietitian, and/or homeopathic doctor should be consulted for a treatment plan. Thank you!

      Hi Melissa, happy to help. When I drink tea for acid reflux, ginger and Throat Coat Tea are my favorite.

      Hello Melissa, the green tea has caffeine. You want to avoid caffeine. It relaxes the LES to cause acid reflux. The ginger and lemon can help some people. If the ginger lemon tea you’re drinking has caffeine, you’ll want to avoid it too. I keep ginger tea handy. It’s often a good choice for me. Experiment, we are all different. You may respond better to a different tea.

    Hi;
    Is this something you can drink all day as a beverage or only when needed? I have Barrets Esophagus Disease and really bad heart burn chronically and am looking for a beverage I can drink throughout the day since I no longer drink coffee.

      Hello Diane! It would be best to follow the directions of your doctor and that on the herbal tea you choose. Most of these herbal teas should be safe to periodically drink during the day. Just like most foods, too much of a good thing isn’t good. Varying between different ones throughout the day would be better than relying on just one. You might find different herbal teas work better at different times of the day. Especially after meals.

      Hi Anne! My pleasure! Drinking right after your meal is fine. I let mine steep 10 -15 minutes.

      Hello Anne. I usually drink Throat Coat tea after meals or other times I’m having acid reflux. It’s also helpful to drink before bedtime if you have nighttime heartburn.

    There is a common cross-over allergy from ragweed to camomile. If you get hay fever don’t be surprised if camomile tea doesn’t work or worse, upsets your stomach more.
