I like it too. Especially when being sick starts to make me feel anxious.

Peppermint tea works also.  Actually, I've found that if I'm having really bad stomach spasms, hot beverages help, so I will even drink hot water if I'm somewhere where I can't get herbal tea.

Enjoyed herbal teas since the 70s. One of the first things that alarmed me about my gut problem before the first flare landed me in ER in 2004 was when spearmint tea burned like fire, all the way down and then some. I love chamomile, but after I learned it's related to ragweed, which I'm allergic to, I quit drinking it. I still enjoy an occasional cup of Sleepytime, it has both spearmint and camomile.
