How often do you take a cup of tea?

Tea - Tea. Surely we all take tea. The tea we take is always different than other people, but it's always good to have a variety. Do you like tea? How many times do you take tea every day?

Hey mylotters! I just need to know, out of terms of curiosity and a study for my biology project, how much tea, on the average, that one consumes every day. As for me, I take about 1-3 cups of tea a day. My mother used to tell me that alot of tea every day is not good. That's why I try to limit myself to the amount I take. The same goes for coffee, except I believe coffee is worse as it harms your kidneys. SO my question for you is: How many cups of tea do you take every day?

Hi, borg246. I don't drink tea everyday. I usually may drink hot tea once a moth or so. I only drink it when I have a taste for it, when I am not feeling well with cramps or the Flu/ Cold Virus. I do drink coffee every other day or so. But it is only one cup not several cups in a day. I just now started drinking coffee. But, I do so only in moderation though.

Hi there, I like green tea. I usually drink 2-3 cups of tea a day... but I have read that 3-6 cups a day of green tea is good for the health. Green tea has a lot of health benefits, and a very good source of antioxidant.

How many cups of tea... I don't have a count, but at least two. Today I have had 3 so far, and will probably drink some tea before going to bed. It makes my body feel warm, so I can sleep better. Some people can't sleep after drinking tea, but I'm lucky, as it's not my case

I am not used to drink tea. I hate, hate tea, in my sincere opinion! I just drink it when it is needed. For instance when I'm sick I have to drink a tea with lemon and garlic (eww) wich makes me feel so much better at the end of the day! In fact, I drank it today since I'm sick! And I'm going to drink it later.... But when is no need to drink tea, I give priority to coffee! I think is soo much better!

i am not a regular when it comes to tea/coffee. i usually drink it when i have my exams and have to burn the midnight oil. otherwise it is not a necessity for me. but i prefer coffee over tea. now that you tell me coffee affects kidneys(i had no clue about this thing), i may want to know a little more about the same .

I take tea 4-6 cups a day. The tea I am drinking is the Malunggay (Scientific Name: Moringa Oleifera) Tea. It is a herbal tea rich in Vitamins A,C, E plus it has also Iron, Protein and Calcium. As per my research, it is good for the eyes and digestion plus can also prevent ovarian cancer and kidney disease.

I don't like tea as much as coffee. I only drink green tea and I don't like it when it's hot I would prefer other tea drinks. If it was coffee i take it minimum of 2 in a day.

Hi Borg! I am not that fond of hot tea. I do drink a lot of iced tea though. Usually with flavors. I am more addicted to coffee rather than tea. I usually drink green tea when I want to relax. I put some vanilla into it. The smell is so good it has a soothing effect to me.

Although tea is one of our main drink in China. But I don't drink it often. I am not very interested in tea. Usually I will drink tea when I am eating in the restaurant because this is the drink they offer. In my life I tend to drink more water. I love China

I love tea,especially green tea. It is much more healthier than any other drinks. I also put a bit ginger to it while boiling it. It makes it much more tastier.Green tea is very good for health as it reduces the risk of any heart disease and also helps in reducing some extra kilos. Previously,I used to be a coffee addict but now I am replacing it with green tea.I take two cups regularly.

I do not drink my tea in cups. I drink cold tea, I drink about 12 ozs. a day. I try to limit my self on tea, it effects my kidneys. I do drink more at times, when I need energy. I have heard that some teas are good for you, one being green tea. Have a good day.

No more than two cups and I usually go herbal. I'm a tea drinker though as I can't abide by coffee. However, if I'm feeling under the weather or stressed, I keep on guzzling the thing. It does wonders, if not for my body, then for my disposition. Something about the ritual of drinking tea is soothing.
