    I assure you, it is quite alright I consume about 10 a day! But then, I have also wondered if I have a problem, as I agree with you in that I cannot work unless there is a cup of that gods' nectar within arms' reach! Though, it might be worth drinking red bush tea because sometimes there is no caffeine, so it won't make you all hyper and crazy. :K:

    Yep I addicted to tea as well I tend to have about 10+ on the weekend when I am on my own, think I going to make another one now think I'm on my 6th one of the day now (lost count), I do tend to drink more coffee at work because the tea out of the machine is rank and the coffee is only slightly better. Some times will have a proper one with lunch but it can depend

    I currently have 3 types of tea, I have Yorky, English Breaky and Earl Grey to choose from to drink, I generally have the Earl Grey in the morning and alternate between the other two after work and during the day on weekends

    Well I'd try to break that if I were you.
    I don't need to tell you that too much caffeine is bad for you.
    But Tea contains tannins which can bind to iron and inhibit absorption so you could end up with iron deficiency. I would say 3 cups a day is the limit.
    Although I guess you could eat foods that increase iron absorption, but it's just easier to cut down on the tea.

    Now I want some tea. :unimpressed:

    Thankfully not! My teeth would have fallen out I do add rather a lot of milk though- about a third of the cup
