Morning everyone how many cups of tea do you have a day.

tanith Tue 22-Dec-20 07:30:01

3 or 4 cups unless my daughter pops in (we’re in a bubble) then we usually manage 2 while she’s here.

kittylester Tue 22-Dec-20 07:40:52

aggie Tue 22-Dec-20 07:44:08

Lexisgranny Tue 22-Dec-20 07:44:45

Grannynannywanny Tue 22-Dec-20 07:45:08

Approx 3 or 4 tea and 2 coffee

Hetty58 Tue 22-Dec-20 07:50:28

6 or 7 (that's how many tea bags I put in the wormery) - then there's the coffee and cocoa too - so 3 litres of Oatly barista oat milk a week - just for me!

None ever. I'm strictly a coffee - occasionally chocolate nowadays - drinker. Think it was the smell of tea that couldn't get it through my lips initially.

Loislovesstewie Tue 22-Dec-20 08:07:30

None; I only drink coffee, home-made espresso/cappuccino, percolator or instant. I don't mind how it's made. I have never really enjoyed tea, it's either insipid or so strong it tastes bitter.

Casdon Tue 22-Dec-20 08:08:50

Kim19 same here, the smell of tea turns my stomach, I’m a coffee lover.

Froglady Tue 22-Dec-20 08:09:14

I have one large mug for my breakfast most mornings. And then I probably have a large coffee later on in the morning and then that's it usually for drinks for the day.

Nanderin Tue 22-Dec-20 08:13:27

I drink 6 and think I need to drink more water and less

Oopsadaisy1 Tue 22-Dec-20 08:14:27

None, another coffee lover here.

ginny Tue 22-Dec-20 08:19:50

4 or 5 is usual. Plus a few glasses of sugar free squash.

shysal Tue 22-Dec-20 08:26:44

None. I don't like coffee either. Tap water only for me.

Maggiemaybe Tue 22-Dec-20 08:34:19

Six or seven. Usually including a couple of fruit/liquorice/herbal ones (currently the Teapigs mulled variety). Plus one coffee.

Charleygirl5 Tue 22-Dec-20 08:51:06

Dear God, is this what we are reduced to? Would anybody like to know how often I turn over in bed or how often I visit the loo?

M0nica Tue 22-Dec-20 08:59:32

Charleygirl For some people your last suggestion may well be of help in understanding any medical problems they have. Will you start the thread or shall I? smile

Auntieflo Tue 22-Dec-20 09:06:16

At least 6. blush

lemsip Tue 22-Dec-20 09:08:43

9 to 10 cups of tea for me, sometimes two in quick succession!
yes, I know some say it's not good for you. I'm an early riser and go to bed after midnight so not to bad!

it's not compulsory to read any thread! like a book, pick it up or put it down lol

Charleygirl5 Tue 22-Dec-20 09:15:57

lemsip having read part of the book I am discarding it- it can go to the charity shop when it re-opens.
