How often do you drink tea?

by bagua7 » Sep 20th 10 3:33 am

gee, I still remember the day I spent in a teahouse on the hills of Taipei (my first serious experience with Cha Dao and Gong Fu tea ceremony) and how I ended up so tea drunk that they had to put me on a cab to get me home. :oops:

Well, 5 years later and here I am a real fanatic about this art.

My question is, how much tea is enough, because I don't seem to quench my thirst for the precious golden liquid no matter how much I drink. Yesterday I had black, green, pu-erh and oolong teas for a total of 30 cups (small gong fu ones, a medium-sized one for pu erh and a normal cup for every day green tea), I reckon. No wonder why my heartbeats were so revved up when I went to bed and tried to get some sleep, :twisted:

I have to admit I am a tea junkie, especially on the weekends; and lucky those who don't have to earn a living as this would mean more tea to drink. :lol:

Probably three brewings a day, on average, including one bulk brewing that lasts most if the afternoon.

I guess about 3 times on average - I generally get 10 good brews out of my late afternoon one, otherwise it would be more.

Everyday since I started. Normally I brew 150 to 200ml per infusion after dinner. Average consumption is about 1 to 1.5 liters per session before I am full of tea.

While at work I drink tea all day, these days. So more than 3, though sometimes that is from only 1 or 2 batches of leaves.

I usually drink between three and five cups of tea a day, that is also counting tisanes, although since I've been back to work I haven't always had a chance to brew tea there, I have to make time to fit it into my schedule lol!

I usually have a brew going. Usually 3 brews on the weekdays and 4 on the weekends. I would have more if not for the caffeine keeping me up at night.

Oh, probably +3/day, depending on what I'm drinking.

Whatever it is, it's not enough :D

6+ 350ml cups of tea per day for me typically...can substitute a matcha bowl for a cup of tea which is less volume but stronger tea effect! :lol:

Will be interesting to see what happens when I get a gaiwan or gongfu size pot...I doubt the total volume will change though! :lol:

I drink tea all morning. At least four large cups; more on a slow day.

Recently, I've become a bit sensitive to caffeine, so I've had to cut out my afternoon tea consumption. . . Which isn't a bad thing, as it's pushed me to drinking higher quality tea (quality not quantity) and ultimately to this site.

Welcome to the forum! Hope we help you find quality tea.

Perhaps you will introduce yourself under Introductions! :mrgreen:

And share what is in your cup on TeaDay!

Besides my protein shakes which are meals, I only drink tea. :3 So of course I drink tea all day everyday!

I am going to slow down with pu erh consumption. It's increasing my heart rate. No good for me. Pity because I know the health benefits of this tea.

Will stick to greens and greener oolongs for now.
