Maybe if it counts, I can get more water in! I haven't been able to work in much, as I lack some motivation.

According to recent studies non caffeinated tea counts and caffeinated 1/2 counts. So if black or green and drink 12 oz-6 oz counts towards water.

I would count an occasional cup of tea as a cup of water. Most of the water I count would be without anything else added.

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 do count it-as it is liquids, however, my doc also recommended drinking a non-diuretic several times a day as well!

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 emoticon

Yes, all fluids count but regular tea and coffee have caffeine and so are also diuretics so drinking water is still a very good idea.

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.
