    I find, if anything, that tea REDUCES my bloating. One of the reasons for this is that all forms of tea are mild diuretics (that is, they make you have to urinate more often). This helps with water retention from excess dietary sodium and any other number of reasons it might occur.

    Of course, if I drink fantastic amounts, I get slightly bloated until my body has processed it all, but it's hard to drink the level of tea quickly enough that that would require and the diuretic nature of tea makes that even harder.

    I drink regular true teas and sometimes herbal. Right now, I am sipping on an awesome vanilla chai blend I bought yesterday (without milk though).

    Ginger tea has much the same effect as well, I can say from experience.

    Try making tea out of food-grade dried rose petals. Rose is anti-inflammatory and works well for quelling cramps, even. The tea is also super soothing and delicious. Very mild unless you over-steep it.

    i cannot abide green tea. it tastes like yard clippings.

    i drink black tea of varying sorts and it agrees with me just fine.

    caffeine is not a demon.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    I think you probably haven't found the right green tea for you. I agree that some green teas taste too weedy, but there are a lot of really amazing ones out there. If you're ever bored, you might want to track down a really good tea shop near you and go try some different varieties of greens. There are some that are so smooth and mellow that they almost taste creamy! It sounds like you're happy with black teas, but I'd hate to encourage a lifelong hatred of greens since I find some of them to be so incredibly tasty! I'm currently drinking a green tea that costs about $200 a pound, so amazing. :-)
