Definitely count it! I drink lots of tea myself and I record it.


This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

I count herbal tea (no caffeine) as part of my water intake. Caffeine is what would give tea any diuretic properties. Spark Dietician Becky replied to a similar question with a link to a SP article. Let me see if I saved it in my Favorites.

I know a man of Filipino origin, who will not drink ANYTHING but green tea. He doesn't like coffee or soda, and refuses to drink plain water, but averages 10 cups of green tea (without sugar)a day; the doctor said he is very healthy! Here's what I sometimes do; make a cup of green tea and add it to 24oz of cool water to fill my 32oz bottle, and in the mornings it really helps me chug the bottle down before I start working out!

I always debate whether to count herb teas and even decaf coffee. Sometimes as a compromise I count half of what I drink as water.

I've heard both, count it and don't count it. Count it because it is so good for you. Don't count it because it is a diuretic. I don't know. I just drink it.

Me too, I'd say count it.

absolutely! My main water intake during the winter is tea. I read an article on SP that said to count all liquid, within moderation of course.

Like tea is nothing calorie wise while beer is, etc.

can anyone tell me if green and herbal tea with no sweetners count towards water? I drink 16 ounces of water lemon every a.m. and the 2x's a day I drink a 16 ounce cup of green tea and then a 16 ounce herbal tea and then usually another 16-20 ounces of water in the evening - would that all count towards my 8 glasses a day?
