How many cups a day?

Maybe it’s because I’ve just discovered how fun it is to brew looseleaf tea this past week, but I’ve gone from only drinking a cup of tea at work every other day to having at least 3 different kinds of tea in a day. Is that normal? Am I considered sane by tea-loving standards?

totally and completely sane. I drink between 6-12 12 oz cups a day.

I usually have about 6-8 cups (no clue what the volume of my cups are) per day. Sometimes I’ll cycle through three or four different teas, but usually I stick with two that I alternate throughout the day.

I average 4 cups a day, and 2-3 kinds of tea in a day (fewer kinds if using loose leaf I have found, both due to mood, and re-steeping) I have had as many as 7 cups in a day a few times recently. Mostly I use a 14oz tumbler, but will be changing type of tumbler soon. (have tea ware orders on their way!)

I’d say 5 -8 cups for me. When I go to work I usually bring about 3 or 4 varieties with me because I never know what I’ll want to drink.
Yesterday I only had 3, which was weird.

Very sane. :)

I usually have two 12 ounce cups at work during the day, but if work is slow (so I can make more frequent bathroom trips…) or I’m wanting to try more than one kind in the day, I go up to 4 or 5. On the weekends I am not without tea in hand unless I am planning on being out somewhere without restrooms for a few hours at a time. I gotta plan my tea and outings with that in mind! :) On Saturdays when I am doing nothing else, I’ll start with a 3 cup pot in the morning and then progress to a large cool or iced one with lunch and then at least one more pot over the evening if not two.

totally relate to the trip planning/needing to avoid tea issues!

Depends on the day, but if I’m working I usually have 2-4 cups before I go in and then maybe 1-2 at work (or none). On the weekends it’s just tea all day long. :) Though I do try and stop caffeinated stuff at some point in the afternoon.

I drink one cup of caffeinated tea a day and as much non-caffeinated as I can which ends up being a max of 4 cups. My cut off time for the caffeinated tea is 2pm of I won’t get to sleep at a decent hour.

Okay, I feel better now! I’ve definitely noticed I’m more energetic. I should find some decaf blends for inthe evening!

There are some teas that are naturally less caffeinated such as genmaicha too that you could try for evening use.

i’d say i average 4 cups a day at this point. the first 2 are caffeinated and the second two aren’t.
but on the weekends that goes out the window and i drink as much as i want whenever!

i have made a lot of changes, health wise, in the past 2 years. and quitting caffeine was a HUGE positive part of that. so i do try to keep in mind what level my intake is at. not fun, but responsible :)

very glad you asked this question, since it is on my mind very often. no i can have some other’s perspectives.
