17 month old only wants tea

To get her switched over, start diluting the tea with water. Every day make it more and more dilute and eventually she she will be on just water. My kids were born in an era where juice was commonly given. I am glad I diluted it and I never gave them pop. My sisters kids are a bit younger and they drink milk and water, period. That's all they know, so it is all they want.

Parents would find that children would eat and drink what we wish them to if we'd stop offering the 'bribe' items like tea, soda, candy, sweets...
In other words, you taught your child to drink tea by offering it rather than her normal fluids. Then, rather than enforcing normal fluids, you continued to default to tea. Now you need to 'retrain' your child to eat and drink healthily. That will take more time than it did to get her drinking tea...but that's what you need to do.
