if you're drinking caffeine free tea to save your bladder, be careful of other teas that are diuretics- i'm a tea novice and found out that mints are diuretics, spearmint being the most powerful.

I think you mean "diuretic." A diuretic is a chemical that increases urine output, and "diarrhetic" is the adjective form of diarrhea. I certainly hope none of us are drinking diarrhetic tea... :shock:
