If I'm in a flare, nothing "really matters" when it comes to diet, within reason (bowl of jalapenos not recommended). In fact, I find if I have a cup of coffee or two in the AM it "blows out" my colon and I can get on with my day for the most part. Otherwise, again, personally - all different - I struggle with tenesmus and "do I have to go???" if I forego the java.
Tea is the WORST for me. I've tried specific teas for UC etc and they kill me. Even during remission if I go to High Tea (which we love to do) it gives me the trots. So weird. Listen to your body.
This is the ULTIMATE frustration of UC re diet: first rule of UC, THERE ARE NO RULES : --)
