I've tried peppermint tea, licorice tea, camomile tea and other herbal teas like marshmallow and meadowsweet - any kind of tea at all makes me worse! Let us know how you get on!

New stuff: GERD. Interstitial Cystitis
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies, eczema, asthma

Rooibos tea health benefits are very similar to the health benefits found in green tea!

This herbal tea is loaded with natural powerful antioxidants and polyphenols that when consumed do good things for the body.

From what I have read, Rooibos is reported  to help many conditions from insomnia to treating hay fever and asthma. Yes, heartburn is another disorder it may help.

Always consult your physician before long-term consumption of any herbal tea or regular tea.

Good luck and I hope this tea works for you.

Kitt, do you remember anyone posting here whose symptoms were reduced by this tea?

I got some rooibos tea when I was on the induction part of the Kaufman diet - I can't tell it helped any but it sure didn't seem to hurt. The diet was pretty much a dud for me - Although since I came off it and have started eating a few things not on it - my throat clearing is pretty much non stop which is wasn't when I was on the diet. I just can't eat like that for a long period of time - I was eating basically two meals the whole time and it got so boring. I'm still relatively careful about what I eat but it doesn't seem to matter what I do - it doesn't get much better mad

I've just begun taking rooibos with whole milk 3 times a day. It seems to relieve my GERD symptoms.

I read a post from another GERD sufferer who drinks rooibos with manuka honey thrice daily for his GERD
symptoms. It's day 2 for me, and so far so good. It doesn't seem to relieve it 100%, but about 70-80%,
That's a big difference, though, because nothing else, including ACV, has worked for me!
Would like to get more feedback on rooibos tea as a GERD remedy.

Since giving up caffeine I've been searching for a tea/beverage I can enjoy.  I drink the Rooibos tea but find the taste  boring so I add a very small amount of juice to it. 
I hadn't thought to put milk in it since it's a "herb" tea and have never found milk and herb teas go well together.
I want my coffee back :(((

Rooibis without the milk doesn't give me much relief. I do get relief from rooibos plus milk. Not sure yet whether this is something I should continue because, as we all know, milk is known to give temporary relief but is actually an agitator for GERD. Maybe the tea neutralizes the fat? I really have no idea. Haven't tried it with skim milk because I only drink organic milk. Tea with milk seems to work better than milk alone. Will post a comment if problems develop.
I've had new flareups recently after drinking cocoa every day for a week. I thought I could handle it and then one day BOOM.
I'm hoping I don't get a repeat performance with this tea-milk concoction...
