people get so technical... if you have a glass of water and drop a slice of lemon in it does it still count as a glass of water........ yes
if you drop a tea bag in that glass of water does it still count as a glass of water since it is now colored brown and flavored................ yes
if you put some beans in it, brew it and drink it as coffee does it still count as water......... the glass of water is still the glass of water just flavored and colored
if you drop some Miso flavor drops in it or Crystal lite crystals or other flavorings in it, it is still the same glass of water, just flavored and colored....... a glass of water

I drank tea instead of water all day yesterday. Paying for it today. It may hydrate the cells, but nothing for the bowels. I'll stick to my gallon of water. Won't wake up in the middle of the night with gas pains.

It really depends on what tea that you are drinking. If it is brewed tea that you have made, then yes. If it is bottled tea with all of the additives, then no. I personally love green tea iced and any kind of mint tea hot.
I count 6 glasses of water (but I drink bigger than 8 oz) then 1-3 cups of tea and I mark off coffee just to track my intake. Plus, I also drink Sole water in the morning so it's counted as 1 too. I've actually tracked this consistently since last June and am extremely satisfied with the progress! Now to track it on SP

I guess the general reply is...YES tea can be counted as water BUT probably only herbal, caffeine free, no sugar or milk/cream. Like a cup of peach tea...basically hot flavored water. This is good news because the idea of a cold glass of water when it is so cold outside is daunting.
I do not count it as the same as my granddaughter has a neurogenic bladder the the urologist said not to have any caffeine but lemonade is actually okay, but even though other beverages are good, she still needed plain water to make things function right. I think adding natural lemon or lime us okay.
