    Two to three 12-oz cups, though I may mix it up with a cappuccino if I'm feeling spicy.

    Don't underestimate that, it might be between half to a quarter depending on the tea compared to coffe, but it's still a daily intake.


    I have to admit I thought it would be alot less than it actually is. This might explain why I have problems going to bed early, since I usually brew a kettle after coming home from work, as I only drink water throughout the day otherwise and enjoy some flavor in my free time. Because I prefer black teas that means I'm in it with over 17mg/100ml according to some tea wiki.

    Apparently my second choice green tea comes in with 10mg/100ml but suppsedly works slower due to tanning agents.

    For reference, coffe supposedly comes in with 40mg/100ml according to google.

    2-3 cups of black coffee, multiple liters of green tea a day, some diet coke.

    Too much really.

    @Haidaes You can limit the impact of caffeine in your tea by using the Chinese brewing tradition -- https://www.thoughtco.com/chinese-tea-ceremony-687443

    You don't have to go full out tea ceremony, but do note Step 7 where it says:
    Do not drink the tea. Instead, it is discarded.
    For more details: http://www.caffeine-content.com/caff...ur-cup-of-tea/
    I can't vouch for their accuracy, but it seems to mesh with other sources I've read. Notice that this does not remove all caffeine but it does reduce it. YMMV, but here the better grades of tea hold up through multiple steepings and that's part of the enjoyment -- being able to see/smell/taste how the subsequent rounds change.

    A mug of coffee in the morning, maybe another in the afternoon.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    That sounds awfully elaborate for that little bit of gustatory fun after work.

    I have a couple mugs of green tea every morning. In the afternoon I usually have a single cappuccino.

  9. #29
    Two litres of strong black coffee every day.

  10. #30
    Two large coffees in the morning and tons of tea through the day, maybe another cup of coffee in the afternoon, I'd say I average 700mg-1000mg/day.

    It would be. I used the tea ceremony as an example to show that if you're drinking even halfway decent tea -- far from ruining the taste -- dumping out the first rinse is a practice that has been around a long time and is considered a way to enjoy the tea. It allows bungee to survive 2-3 hour binges in tea markets. Otherwise, while I do have decent Yixing teapots and an ordinary porcelain one, I usually just toss my tea in one of those plastic jars that the Chinese tend to lug around.

    If you're drinking the style of tea that Americans used to use for iced tea back in the middle of the last century though ... that stuff was horrible, and pretty much one use then throw away the tea bag. <shudder> Even when I was a teenager I preferred to visit the local Asian market and get gunpowder tea.

    I loved it. My aunt use to make the best old fashion tea like that. Dark and loaded with sugar. The only kind of tea today I will drink and it is hard to find anyone who makes it like that anymore. So I have not had any for decades.

    Yep, that's the stuff -- boiled until it was more of an extract than a beverage, loaded with so much sugar that it was nearly an experiment for supersaturated solutions, diluted by serving it over as much ice as could be packed in the glass, and garnished with optional lemon slices. I think it was considered "Southern", the go to brand was Luzianne.

    For those who think I'm exaggerating the horror of it: https://www.food.com/recipe/louisiana-sweet-tea-378458
    2 cups sugar (some people prefer 3 cups but i think its a little too much)
    That's a fancy, modern, lightweight recipe. People used to boil the danged teabags. I suppose it counts as a tea flavored drink ... but it was always way too sweet for me to really think of it as tea.

    Pretty much 0. Drink water nearly 100% of the time and mostly have a Monster before the gym on a Monday and Friday. Weekends vary from week to week. Compared to the average person that drinks coffee every day, I'd say my intake is pretty low.

    Two triple espressos everyday.
