Has anyone tried rooibos red tea? My sister told me about it and I did some research and it looks like a great healing tea. Says that it is an antitoxant and also antispasmatic, among other good things. But I don't know if it is acidic. I didn't want to try it without running it past you all. Thanks to all who answer, this site has been sooooooo helpful to me!

I can't drink it. It makes my frequency/urgency worse. My boss was into it for a little while, but then started developing diarrhea. She stopped drinking it too.
if you ant to try it, maybe have a little bit at first, or water it down. I take prelief when I am unsure if something is too acidy and this helps me.

I have had rooibos tea with no side effects. I love it and save it as a treat. Remember, too much of anything may cause ill side effects. I ordered some chai spice rooibos from an online company.

I can drink this tea in moderation. I drink 90% evian water, but a little of this tea doesn't seem to bother me. I buy the plain tea and add things if I am in the mood. I found that many of the teas have hidden lemon...so read the label and make sure what's in the tea.
Good luck with it. Let us know how you do.

If you find Yvette around here, she might have some input...
She turned me on to red roobios because I was a HUGE tea drinker before IC. I like it; but as Cynthia Ann mentioned, too much of anything has side effects. I had one cup and was absolutely fine. I liked it so much I kept making cups from the same tea bag all that afternoon. It is a dark red tea, so the bag seemed as though it always had tea to make! I had NO symptoms from one cup. After two or three though, my frequency started to increase. TOo much of a good thing wink
I agree, start slow and water it down. I also use my bottled water for tea as well. I think this helps.
