I probably drink that much tea in a day, either iced or hot, with caffeine or without. It is the flavor that I really like. If is isn't interfering with your sleep or for some health reason you shouldn't drink caffeinated beverages I don't see a problem.
FYI green teas and white teas still have caffeine (less thank black tea and coffee), most herbal teas or tisanes do not.
LGREGG07 sure I make my own tea. The herbals sound good too.

You can always make your own unsweetened iced green tea, which is what i do. Green tea doesn't a lot of caffeine, if any at all. Or if you don't like green tea, a lot of herbal teas make good iced tea, and they don't have caffeine in them either. Iced mint tea is probably my favorite!
I drink a mason jar of unsweetened green tea iced each day. I love it and believe it gives my sluggish metabolism a boost.

That does seem a bit on the high side. As a recovering caffeine addict, I know how hard it can be to cut back. If you want to start reducing the amount of caffeine you're taking in, I would suggest to do it gradually. Quickly eliminating caffeine can result in nagging headaches and moodiness. Maybe just cut back to 24oz. of iced tea at first. When you feel like you're comfortable with that, try cutting down another cup to 16oz., then 8oz., etc.
Once you really have it under control, give decaf a try...it's not for everyone but I've found that it's more the thought of the cup of coffee in the morning that gets me going. Also, decaf still has a minimal amount of caffeine that can help give you that kick in the a.m.

Sounds just fine to me. If you feel good, then it is probably fine for you as well :)

I drink plenty of water (80-100 ounces a day), but I've been drinking a lot of unsweet tea lately. Probably around 32 ounces a day. What are your thoughts? Is that too much caffeine?
I've cut down on coffee. I have one 12 ounce cup in the morning opposed to 3. Does that make it better?
