    I might be wrong, but isn't tea diuretic? I wouldn't advise getting too much of anything that's diuretic, other than that, I don't know any reason to hold back on tea.

    Thank you KNUBB - I ALMOST asked you what that meant, until I looked up the definition. I do believe I would have felt pretty stupid had I asked you. :D :o

    I'm pretty sure that tea isn't a diuretic if it is caffeine-free.

    I would drink as much *cafffeine free* tea as you wish.

    Cheers.

    You can decaffinate(mostly) by pouring out the "first pour" of water into your tealeaves. I know that isn't clear so...
    Put the tealeaves, or teabag in your cup. (I use Organic Gunpowder)
    Pour in your hot water.
    Holding the bag or leaves in the cup, pour out your water.
    Pour fresh hot water into your cup and let steep as usual.

    Lipton brand has decaf tea bags and decaf green tea bags. You can use the same way as you prep your tea as usual: steep in hot water, or use for preparing sun tea or iced tea.

    They also have (non-decaf) flavored green tea. My favorite is the mixed berry green tea bags.

    Where I live, there is a popular brand of tea sold prepared. It's called Rutter's, and they carry a diet decaf which is also quite good.

    I am a huge fan of my tea. It has so many wonderful health benefits compared to coffee (which I do drink too). I would say drink about as much tea as you want (assuming it isnt the kind with sugar), but it wouldnt hurt to try and match water consumption with your tea consumption (it should probably exceed it if you can).
