Most days 1, (coffee in the morning, when I rise at 10:15), starting tea at 22:15 when I return from work. Going Gong Fu for 6 or 7 infusions, while supper is cooking. A bottle of wine with supper and bed before 03:00.

Half day, home for 18:15, It will usually be 2.

The Days I don't work it is often 3, but if down at the pub I am demonstrating Chinese Tea to friends it may be 5.

Averaging out - I chose 2.

Why do spammers like Jack Percy upset me?

I'm down to two teas per day. Usually yan cha in the morning (no coffee) and Japanese green in early afternoon. I typically use 6 grams of leaf per session, but I might reduce the the Japanese green session to 3 grams in a 100ml hobin. Interestingly, the less tea that I drink the less I need, which suggests that my caffeine intake is still too high. At some point I will find the correct amount.

Maiko's 2010 shuppin sencha this morning -- after drinking yan cha all weekend.

me too.
Today double infusion of bancha. Then double infusion of kukicha. I've been so busy mixing these it's nice to drink them individually again, brewed rather strong at work.
Tonight will likely be some young aged sheng or a wuyi in the comfort of my home. :mrgreen:

During the week it is usually 2.. one for the morning/work day (like English Breakfast, Earl Gray, or another bold black tea) and another (probably green) for the evenings.

Weekends.. maybe a 3rd in the afternoon, depending on my knitting...

Generally three. A bowl or two of matcha before work, something out of my stash at work, and then anything I feel like once home in the evening. Sometimes more if I have the day off, work a long shift(giving me time for more), or am up late.

Currently on tea #3: started with some Anji "white" tea, then Da Hong Pao from Norbu, and now am working on nearly the last of a very nice Shui Xian from Jing Tea Shop, a very forgiving tea that is not really punishing me too much for the long gap between purchase and drinking.

This is a typical teaDay--one tea before lunch, often a sencha or another green tea with breakfast, then a bulk brewing of something to fill the middle of the day, taken to meetings or shared during long work sessions away from the office, and then one or two teas, often something that doesn't take to bulk brewing--more delicate greens, white teas, or aggressive young shengs--to finish the evening.

As usual, I shoot for 3 teas a day. I usually hit the mark and occasionally surpassing it ... and sometimes missing the mark.

3 day TD began with Guricha from Xell with the Mrs. Next up, Takumi from Zencha. And finished the trifecta with Silver from the O-C.

Usually 2 or 3; first sencha, and then macha and/or oolong and/or Chinese green. Today, I do it a bit differently, starting with a Vietnamese oolong (Taiwanese style).

At least 2 types a day, often 3. I usually start the day with a black tea. If the second is a white or green, I will end up with a third type. But if it's an oolong or pu-erh, that will usually last the rest of the day.

On most days 2. Usually I have some sencha in the morning and matcha in the afternoon. Depending on my class schedule for the day, I might start with matcha and come home to sencha in the afternoon.
