Caffeine can trigger the symptoms of acid reflux, so herbal teas are often recommended as an alternative. If mint aggravates your symptoms, avoid this type of tea and try liquorice instead. Liquorice can help coat the esophagus with extra mucus.

Some herbs can interfere with medications, so check with your GP or pharmacist if you’re worried about a potential conflict.
