I've Still Got Sugar Plums Dancing In My Head

It's almost Valentine's Day and I still have images of Sugar Plums dancing in my head!

Last night, I had major heartburn - but worth it cuz Zachary's Pizza is delicious.

Anyway, that's beside the point. The point is, that I didn't have any Zantac, no Rolaids and not a Tums in sight - so, I made myself a cup of Celestial Seasonings Sugar Plum Spice Tea (leftover from my holiday stash). Really did the trick.

But this box won't last forever. Anybody have any ideas as to other teas that work for heartburn and upset stomach?


  1. Chamomile tea is rich in calcium and it will lower the stomach acids that are causing your heartburn symptoms. Added benefit - it helps you to sleep like you don't have a care in the world!

  2. Ditto to above. Peppermint, Chamomile, Fennel and Ginger according to this:

  3. After lunch today, I had occasion to be on Livingston Street in Oakland and spotted Numi® Organic Tea Garden. I've drank Numi® teas in the past, but didn't know this tea house existed, nor did I realize how many different teas the company packages. As I mused over the different teas available for consumption and/or purchase, I thought to myself "A good cup of exquisite tea is just what I need to get my afternoon into a soothing, relaxed place. So, I went into the tea garden and found the inside to be just as peaceful and inviting as the outside surroundings. I was so surprised to stumble upon this oasis in an area that is a complete mixture of industrial and loft work/resident spaces. It's tucked in a cul de sac and offers not only a peaceful surrounding, but a delightful tea house, complete with extensive offerings of teas and light food! I had just finished lunch and thought I would pickup a tea for afternoon sipping at home while relaxing and listening to Williams-Sonoma®'s Blue Smoke - Barbeque Jazz CD. I chose to steep a pot of Numi® Magnolia Puerh. I found it to be a delightful blend of black tea with a sweet floral hint. As I listened to the soothing sounds of Keb' Mo', Aretha and others, I was reminded that Spring with it's magnolia trees strutting their stuff and outdoor barbeques is just around the corner. I can't wait to try some of the other Numi® organic teas. I plan to return real soon with a girlfriend or two for a "Grownup Tea Party!"
