I probably drink about 7 cups of tea a day.
Is this too much?

I drink 4 - 5 cups of tea. Sometimes also drink one decaf coffee or a hot chocolate.

2 cups of tea

I'm pregnant though so watch long caffeine.

Non pregnant it's 4.

i have 1 or 2 coffees a day, and maybe 1-3 cups of decaf tea.

Crunchymum Tue 17-Oct-17 12:30:34

Watching caffeine (not watch long)

PinkHeart5914 Tue 17-Oct-17 12:32:54

Coffee about 5-7 cups

riseandfall Tue 17-Oct-17 12:35:33

10 cups of tea probably far too much but I love it

Normally just one cup in the morning. Very occasionally another in the afternoon. I don't understand how people have the time to make and drink 5-7 or more cups in one day secretly very jealous

probably 4 cups of coffee in the morning. never drink it after 11 or so. Might have a cup of tea in the evening if someone was around.

Somewhere between 3-7!

I drink herbal tea and have about 10 cups a day.

safariboot Tue 17-Oct-17 12:38:42

Lots! I've not actually counted, but probably 10+ cups of tea a day. I've been trying to make it decaf after work though.

Ta1kinPeece Tue 17-Oct-17 12:38:49

my cup holds a pint of tea

around 8 a day
but I stop at 7pm

When I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding, 1x tea and 2x proper strong coffee. I might have another tea if I feel like it.

Bfing at the mo so 1x tea, 1x coffee, maybe 1x green or white tea

BovForBov Tue 17-Oct-17 12:41:19

Always 2 coffees in the morning, then another midday and a cup of tea in the afternoon generally.
Some days I'll have more in the afternoon though, so between 4-6.

Spookle Tue 17-Oct-17 12:41:21

Around 10 of the large Sports Direct mugs filled with weak ish milky tea brew grin

surferjet Tue 17-Oct-17 12:43:39

So quite a few hardcore tea drinkers then, that’s good grin

fantasmasgoria1 Tue 17-Oct-17 12:46:15

Between 6 and 10. A few teas and decaf coffees!

Note3 Tue 17-Oct-17 12:47:47

Depending on what I'm up to I'll have between 5 and 10 coffees a day. I would like to cut back though

RatOnnaStick Tue 17-Oct-17 12:49:01

3 or 4? sometimes more if I'm making one for someone else or we're out somewhere but its generally one first thing, one or two in the day and one when DH gets home.

I don't think tea does you any harm even in large quantities, does it? I drink about 3 cups of tea a day, and sometimes 1 decaf coffee. If I drink proper coffee I often have trouble getting to sleep, even if I had the coffee in the morning. Apparently some people take waaay longer to metabolise caffeine than others.

notsmartenough Tue 17-Oct-17 12:51:04

Three cups of coffee a day. First and last with milk, but the middle one - in the afternoon - is either a cappuccino sachet or made with double cream (a la Berni Inns c.1970s).
I drink water the rest of the time.

INeedToEat Tue 17-Oct-17 12:52:21

Most days (can go weeks) I don't drink tea or coffee. When I do it's milky decaf and I drink loads. It's purely laziness on my part !

mountainrock Tue 17-Oct-17 12:53:34

3-4 large mugs of camomile/peppermint tea at the moment (I'm off caffeine while pregnant). Otherwise it's usually the same amount of green tea. No coffee.

Unihorn Tue 17-Oct-17 12:53:40

About 6 teas. I'm pregnant so on decaf at the moment though.
