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?

Ya, but that gets old. I like to have at least 1 different drink a day.
what about sparkling water with a half cup of juice in it?
what exactly is sparkling water? All I can think of are the flavored kinds...<br><br>
I'm not a big juice drinker, I don't need the calories.<br><br>
I did see a tea place in Boulder (big surprise there!) that I might pop in to this weekend.
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.
I love <a href="" target="_blank">Mighty Leaf</a>, the Organic Breakfast, Orange Dulce and Green Tea Tropical are a few of my favorites.
Perrier. San Pelligrino. Club Soda.<br><br>
Hey.. add lime to sparkling water!!! No calories (or maybe just few??) and lots of flavor!
Celestial seasonings, "Morning Thunder" tea. Good stuff with or without sugar, with as much caffine as a cup of coffee. Larry
