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?

I'm a huge Teavana fan! If you can get down there, Court, that'll be great. They brew teas to drink from any of their flavors, so you can smell the different teas and figure out what you want.<br><br>
I find that I prefer to blend two of their flavors (e.g., plum and lemon) rather than have just one.<br><br>
And if you do go: you DO NOT have to buy a lot of tea. And you DO NOT have to buy their pricey cans. The little brown bags are just fine if the tea isn't going to sit around for months, and if it is, well, that's b/c you didn't love it to begin with.
I do that, meri. I buy unflavored club soda, and mix it with a little juice. Since I've given up most sodas now, it's a great, healthy way to have a good drink with lots of flavor and not too many calories.
