How about a black tea of some sort? There are so many flavors that you're almost sure to find one (or several!) you'll enjoy.

oolong tea has more of a kick than green tea. Although I drink green tea so I don't feel so jittery. Good luck finding what will work for you.

Have you tried the lower acid coffees now available?

You could try a rooibos tea. Which isn't really a "tea" and has no caffeine. They are a bit more hearty and flavourful than a green tea, almost a little bit sweet. Worth a shot?

Edit: whoops I misread your post, ok, if you want caffeine then try Yerba Mate "tea."

If you have a well stocked tea shop nearby, you should find it easily. Or buy online from Teavana or Davidstea or... i'm sure there are lots of online tea sellers, these just happen to be the two I'm most familiar with :)

I am a huge coffee addict. I absolutely love coffee, but due to some recent troubles with my stomach coffee doesn't love me back. Since I need the caffeine to avoid withdrawl headaches, I am looking for a good caffeine replacement that will be easier on my stomach. I've tried green tea, but it just isn't the same. To give you an idea, I usually drink between 3-5 cups of coffee per day. I am open to any and all suggestions.
