How many cups of tea do you drink on a typical day?

(If you don't drink it in a cup, it doesn't count.)

Little Red26 Jul 2023 1:06 p.m. PST

Almost one.

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 1:08 p.m. PST

Two or three

Earl Grey, hot (like anyone would drink it cold)

Phillius Sponsoring Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 1:28 p.m. PST

One and green.

I only drink tea when I'm ill.

Personal logo Mserafin Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 1:53 p.m. PST

I think I'll have a cuppa now, thanks for the suggestion!

Titchmonster26 Jul 2023 2:12 p.m. PST

Tea is like dirt water!

The Nigerian Lead Minister26 Jul 2023 2:29 p.m. PST

Yes, and I have 2 to 3 cups of dirty leaf water a day.

14Bore26 Jul 2023 2:38 p.m. PST

Fall to winter only, no more than 1 a day

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 2:41 p.m. PST

Hot tea or iced tea?

I frequently have a cup of hot tea every morning at work, but it is not an everyday thing.

HMS Exeter26 Jul 2023 2:41 p.m. PST

Tea is a massive con job perpetrated on humanity. Tea is tasty. Golf is fun. Exercise has health benefits. Piffle.

Disco Joe26 Jul 2023 2:49 p.m. PST


GurKhan26 Jul 2023 3:13 p.m. PST

3 to 4.

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 3:42 p.m. PST

When I drink tea, three or four.

dBerczerk26 Jul 2023 4:12 p.m. PST

Herbal tea -- at least three mugs a day, sometimes five mugs during winter months (warming beverage). No caffeine, no sugar, digestive, appetite suppressant.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 4:32 p.m. PST

When I'm well, one cup once a week. Much more when I'm down with something.

Demosthenes Of Athens Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 5:12 p.m. PST

3 cuppas per day. Leaf tea brewed in a pot.

myxemail26 Jul 2023 6:15 p.m. PST

Per day? Minimal. Though about 3-5 per week, and it's generally green tea. Rarely black tea. So I guess I am inconsistent

3 or 4, but I use tea bags a second time.

(Bigelow Plantation Mint)

Khazarmac26 Jul 2023 10:11 p.m. PST

2 or 3 pint mugs of tea a day.

Personal logo Wolfshanza Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 10:38 p.m. PST

Coffee person, here.

377CSG Supporting Member of TMP26 Jul 2023 10:46 p.m. PST

1 in the afternoon.

RittervonBek26 Jul 2023 10:51 p.m. PST

+6. Mugs. Black, bag in.

blacksmith27 Jul 2023 1:49 a.m. PST

One green tea cup after siesta.

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP27 Jul 2023 2:53 a.m. PST

Usually none. On rare occasions Earl Grey but I'm a coffee drinker.

Edge of Empires27 Jul 2023 3:00 a.m. PST

Three to four per diem, double bagged, two sugars, a half inch of milk in a pint mug (that says "no drama llama" with a picture of, yes, a Llama!

korsun0 Supporting Member of TMP27 Jul 2023 5:31 a.m. PST

First thing in the morning followed by as many as I am able to get in during the day. Any problem can be solved by having a cup of tea.
Black tea or Earl Grey only. And no Rooibos which was given to me once and I have never forgotten having to drink it so as not to offend my host.

skipper John27 Jul 2023 6:42 a.m. PST

One or 2 a week and I do enjoy it. But I drink coffee all day long mostly.

And where are the southerners here? Those fellows drink "sweet tea" by the gallons!

Kevin C27 Jul 2023 6:55 a.m. PST

Probably at least 8 to 10. I don't really drink anything else other than water and I drink a lot more tea than water. By the way I like most types of tea, cold or hot, except mint (I hate mint).

Personal logo miniMo Supporting Member of TMP27 Jul 2023 7:32 a.m. PST

1–2 cups of tea, and 1–2 of coffee.

Official tea time is a builders cuppa PG Tips.

Both are tasty, and each has different medicinal properties.

One oolong daily

7 – I am a civilised man…

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP27 Jul 2023 4:39 p.m. PST

I like a nice cup of tea in the morning, just to start the day, you see…but after that it water , juice and coffee!

Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP27 Jul 2023 8:14 p.m. PST

Weekday: 3 or 4 from first arriving the office to mid-afternoon. Once in while a dark tea like English Breakfast, but most of the time green tea or yerba-maté. At lunch, I typically have a bottle (12 oz?) of Tejava iced tea or a can of iced Japanese green tea instead.

Weekend: To start the day, yerba-maté Argentine style, loose leaf in a gourd, drunk with a bombilla and refilled several times over a few hours. Sometimes a dark tea like Earl Gray, or coffee, in the late afternoon.

Martin Rapier27 Jul 2023 11:41 p.m. PST

Unlike many of my compatriots, I drink coffee at breakfast and water the rest of the time me. I have a couple of cups of tea a week.

So per day, 0.3.

The Last Conformist28 Jul 2023 1:27 a.m. PST


Most days, the only other thing I drink is water.

Dagwood28 Jul 2023 8:00 a.m. PST

5-7 tea, 0-2 coffee

x42brown28 Jul 2023 8:16 a.m. PST

I make 3 six cup pots a day but do not finish the full pot each time. I'm a real tea Jenny.


bandit8628 Jul 2023 9:38 p.m. PST

2 or 3 since I gave up coffee

steve dubgworth29 Jul 2023 11:47 a.m. PST

3 to 4 tea usually breakfast tea first thing then bush tea, peppermint tea and afternoon lemon and ginger. I have one coffee in the evening black and I treat myself when out to an espresso.

best cup of tea ever? sergeant majors tea – very strong tea (two spoonfuls of black tea) lots of sugar and then condensed milk- yummy.

Goober29 Jul 2023 7:11 p.m. PST

7. One after I wake up. One at 11, one with lunch, one at 3pm, one at 5pm, one with dinner then one when I sit down to write in the evening.

Large Mug. Yorkshire Gold. Milk and one sweetener.
