Herbal teas are thought to be fine as they are decaf, just make sure that you avoid green tea as that is not. I drink peppermint tea which is quite pleasant to drink and quite soothing. Red Bush tea is also decaf and is much like normal tea. If you want an ordinary cuppa with milk this is probably your best bet. I have tried it and it does not taste that different.

I have tried changing my diet around over the last couple of months as I am having a particularly bad flare up at the moment and have not been to work since the middle of August. Unfortunately, so far I have not been able to identify any real triggers apart from alcohol which I discovered to be a trigger last year. I have drunk no alcohol since the end of last year and have been drinking decaf tea and coffee since about March. All was fine until I got another UTI at the end of May. Things have been very difficult since and no amount of diet change seems to be helping. Hope you have more luck than I have.

Hello all
As we know we are all different so react differently , here is link to the cob shop suggestions, (scroll down)
http://www.cobfoundation.org/cob-shop/healthcare

Personally, I can drink Barely Cup and a very weak eng breakfast tea with honey and little milk, but when I start a flare, I immediately drink Marshmallow root with Cornsilk,making it in a pot and straining each cup poured.

Kind regards
Kate

You can actually buy Redbush tea from the supermarket. I believe it is actually a South African product so it is a bit dearer than normal tea but nowhere as expensive as some of the herbal teas you can get on Amazon.

Yes all supermarkets stock it in the tea section. Teach have their own brand.

Another good one to try is ginger tea as it's very anti inflammatory. Again in the tea and coffee section of your local supermarket.

I drink Tick Tock tea because normal tea contains not only caffeine but tannin. There is no tannin in Tick Tock tea. Tannin is used to soften leather so imagine what it is doing to your bladder !

Other teas I can drink are mint and chamomile.
