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.

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
