If "Sweet Tea" a la the Southern United States counts, sometimes it's two or three, but I suspect this poll is referencing hot tea.

When I do drink tea it's 2-3 cups with a drop of half & half.

If it is unsweetened ice tea, 6-8 large glasses per day.

Depends on the weather.
In the winter, I often drink hot tea, but rarely daily.
In the summer, I like an iced Arnold Palmer, but not daily.

So not 0 but not 1, so "other."

I reject your "if it's not in a cup it doesn't count" sir. Have you not heard of builder's tea? Served only in a mug.

I drink only iced tea and in the morning--it's my sole source of caffeine. And I only drink Peach Tea, and up to about 32 ozs at breakfast in a large glass.

Tea cups are for my Ukrainian Wife, her friends, and display on our breakfast room hutch.

REAL MEN chug it, slug it, and bend it like Beckham!

So there!

I drink coffee daily, hot tea occasionally.

Most of the blokes I work with are fuelled largely by tea and chocolate hobnobs.

The average is probably somewhere around 10 mugs a day. Mugs. None of your airy-fairy cups…

Varies- one to three mugs, not piddling little cups, a day. Proper hot tea (Barry's Gold) with milk and sugar (sometimes no milk on hot days), not some cold soft-drink confection in a bottle or glass.

Tea in half pint mugs, at least 7 a day.

0-1 mugs of hot tea per work day. I rarely drink it at home.

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP15 May 2024 10:32 a.m. PST

Don't drink coffee – so usually 3 mugs a day – sometimes 4; Earl Grey with on sugar; my old Ukrainian grandma taught me how to drink tea and it was most certainly no dairy (which if you grow up in a village with no refrigeration makes a lot of sense)

Dagwood16 May 2024 1:02 p.m. PST

Typically six teas (large cups) and one coffee. two at breakfast, then 10 am, lunch, 3 pm, dinner, 9 pm.

Cups of tea for me in a month maybe, winter more than summer.
Now do coffee

Tea, only when I have a sore throat. So once or twice a year one or two mugs with honey.

Although t be honest if my granddaughter invited me to a tea party I am there.
