My LO went off breastfeeding and bottle feed at 14 months, she now only wants tea and nothing else, I have even tried nesquik. What else can I give her?

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.
