I thought you couldn’t, due to the caffeine in tea? Am I wrong?

@hydrous people go back and forth about this topic. the water in it is hydrating and the caffeine is dehydrating. so who knows‍♀️‍♀️

@hydrous they change all the time. For awhile they let us count it as half. Now I’m not sure.

@jessabell agreed! I mean I only drink water and unsweetened iced tea, don’t drink soda anymore and only drink Gatorade if I’m sick. ‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️

I would not count it as water. Herbal sure but not caffeinated tea. For every cup of caffeine you need to replace it with 2 cups of water.

Any thing liquid can count towards your fluid intake. But remember milk, juice and alcohol has calories and has a point value

Yes. I even add organic liquid stevia to mine and a squeeze of lemon juice.
