I like Bigelow Orange and Spice tea. It says gluten free on the box. Check out their website, they are all listed. They have a bunch of good ones.
FYI, all Twinings teas are gluten free too!

I don't know where to start. There are thousands upon thousands of herbal tea ingredients and blends. What I drink most often right now is the following:

Republic of Tea Harvest Chai
Republic of Tea Cinnamon Vanilla
Choice Tea Northwest Blackberry
Yogi Tea Lemon Ginger
Yogi Tea Classic Indian Spice
Remedy Tea Mulling Spice
Teavana Gingerbread Cookie
Teavana Sweet Fruit Garden
Homemade blend: red raspberry leaf, nettle leaves, rosehips, and hibiscus
Homemade blend: chamomile, fennel, mint, and ginger
Homemade tea of fresh lemon slices, fresh ginger, and honey
Homemade chamomile

But there are a lot of others I drink at other times.

What kind of herbal tea do you like?

My daughter loves Bigelow's Sweet Dreams tea. It is a chamomile/mint tea.

Celestial Seasons peppermint is 100 percent mint (and it's an anti-inflammatory, so is chamomile)

I also do hibiscus and plum (2 hibiscus bags/4 plum teabags)... for a natural sweet and it's great iced to keep in the fridge.

If you like licorice, the Stash Licorice Spice is wonderful. I also like the Celestial Seasonings Mint Medley.

Thanks everyone, i'm drinking Lipton and Luzianne, and no matter how much I dilute it, it has a stong taste that makes my mouth dry for some reason and and causes a tiny bit of reflux. That's why I was asking in another post if the tea bags might have been sealed with gluten. I was hoping the herbals wouldn't do this.

If you've been drinking black tea, it's quite possible that is causing the reflux. Caffeine is a reflux trigger for many people.
