I used to have 5-6 times a day but i have heard that its not good for health so i decreased it. Now i have it 3-4 times still controlling to have it more less. So, what kind of tea do you have.. black tea, green tea, lemon tea or you prefer coffee over tea which is more injurious to health.

I love coffee, but can't drink it. I hate green tea but I am supposed to drink that. I also really love soda pop. I shouldn't drink that either. I hadn't heard that you shouldn't drink too much tea, I was told to make a pitcher of it and drink it all day long. That is green tea I am talking about not black tea.

I drink black tea and have about 6 - 8 cups a day. I have done this for many years and have never found any detrimental effects. In fact I read only the other day that those who drink plenty of tea have better health than those who don't. The "experts" seem to say different things from time to time and often contradict themselves. - Derek

I think herbal tea is okay for you to drink in larger quantities. I drink chamomille at best, once a day, to keep calm and balanced. I tend to drink water, mostly, but that is my favourite tea, and I can't always buy it, so water is my primary drink.

good idea, water is the best drink to keep a person healthy. So, i have heard that we must drink water about 8 glasses every day. Do you drink that much water?

I do. It is kind of easy for me. I work at a desk for 10 hours a day. I drink a cup an hour no problem. :0) But, I love chamomille, as far as teas go. I think tea in moderation is always good. I think chamomille is meant to balance us, and there are tons of other functional herbal teas, too. I never put sugar in my teas, and only drink uncaffeinated teas. I can't handle a caffeine rush. Oh, its ugly when I get one. I avoid soda like the plague.

The least is once a day, the most is twice a day. But not everyday, I alternate tea with coffee during breakfast. I drink any kind of tea. The ones I have now is black tea and I spice it up with fresh mint leaves that I grew.

thats perfect to drink tea once or twice but its the addiction which people face and drink it again and again.

Hi there I love tea. I prefer tea over coffee. I drink 2-3cups of tea a day. It is very refreshing and relaxing. I love green tea for it is less caffeine and has more antioxidant than any kind of tea. But I also drink black tea like the ceylon tea - it is more tastier than green tea but a little more caffeine. So still green tea is the best.

i have tea for about 2-3 times a day...sometimes the number rises to 4also..but not more than that....one is in the afternoon and the rest are in the morning...i know that its injurious to health but i have become a kind of addict...but i do take other healthy things before it...like in early morning i take 2 spoonful of amla juice in water, which is very good for health and so reduces the bad effects of tea....this way i take but also take care of my health

I love both tea and coffee. I drink both everyday. But i drink a cup of tea in the morning and a cup of coffee in the evening. That's all . But sometimes i drink both in the same time. i prefer tea than coffee. i drink about 2cups of tea in average :)

i have 8 times a day for tea. tea keeps me awake and i cannot live without it. sometimes coffee can take the place of tea but i prefer tea. Green tea is a littl "cold" and maybe it can harm your digisting system. I think black tea is better, it is a kind of warm tea.

I used to have 2x a day in the morning I rather take tea instead of coffee and in the evening after my dinner. I used to put non fat milk in my tea or sometimes a creamier too.

I don't drink tea often, but when I do I opt for green tea. It tastes very good, it's calming and best of all it's loaded with antioxidants, which is great for your health. Most of the time I brew my own tea, but sometimes I buy Arizona Green Tea or Lipton Green Tea with Citrus- it's your normal tea with a flavorful kick :)
