Tea? What kind?

Ok, so I drink too much diet soda. I keep hearing how bad it is for me, and I am willing to try and cut back on it. I'd love to give it up one day, but for now I just want to cut back.<br><br>
However, I do not want to get caffiene withdrawl headaches. I can't function then, and I will give in and have a soda.<br><br>
So... I understand tea is good for you.<br><br>
I hate regular tea. Like iced tea? Yuck. It tastes like dirty water to me. But I also know there are more teas out there, and some of them must not taste like crap.<br><br>
I don't really like hot drinks, so if there is something I can drink in a cold form, that would be better. I am mostly wanting to eventually give up soda because of the carbonation, which I keep hearing makes you puffy. And I could do with less aspertame.<br><br>
Any thoughts?

how about water. with a dark chocolate covered espresso bean for a shot of caffeine here & there<br><br>
there are lots of teas. just because you don't like how they made in round home doesn't mean you won't like any of them but it is a pretty good indicator (lest it be southern tea vs. northern tea or hot tea vs. cold tea) not to mention if you are adding in the sugar I don't know how much better off you are than the soda<br><br>
I suggest going to a restaurant that serves a bunch of teas. Most of those breakfast places do. (Bob Evans, Frisch's, T-jays. Ihop, Awful Waffle) Brew yourself 6 or 8 cups and have a little tasting. I'd do it on a Tues. night; not a Sun. morning. When the waitress is less likely to care and will bring lots of hot water and cups.<img alt="smile.gif" src=""><br><br>
For the record. I'm hot tea w/ cream & sugar. By the pot full
