I hope this isn't long term...
I am assuming you are taking the prilosec to limit the amount of acid in your stomach. I know I am recommending you put something acidic into your mouth.
Have you tried, some rice noodles, boiled with finely chopped ginger, add generous apple cider vinegar (with mother) towards very very end of cooking, along with soy sauce. Meat and veggie it to your liking. If you have hq noodles, spring water, organic soy sauce, and vinegar that's satisfying enough on its own for me. Mushroom assortment with some scallions makes my day though
Also consider organic miso noodle soup, or really anything fermented as part of your diet.
As for tea, you may want to consider shorter infusions, smaller pot, but more leaf (but basically same amount since you are downsizing teapot).
Brewing multiple infusions like this usually makes something more gentle on the stomach then say brewing in a big pot for 3-4 mins first infusion and longer after that. Plus you space your intake more , instead of gulping down one huge infusion in a couple of minutes. A lot of people enjoy an extended brew at the end of the last infusion to get as much from the leaf as they can. This can be pretty rough on the body if you underestimated the teas endurance or botched the brewing along the way.
I think often you may hear about tea and stomach issues within the heavy drinking Asian tea communities and on this forum too. I'm guessing they are probably not the same set of causes in relation to the acid reflux issues prevalent in the west.
Maybe you are experiencing both as of last Friday.
Higher oxidation and roasting can tone a tea down for your stomach. Things people like to recommend that are gentle are , high oxi sweet oolongs, roasted grain teas/kukicha, aged shou puerh.
You can test to see.
