The great Brit' tea survey & competition!

Well we have the results from month one and I consumed a total of 67 mugs in 31 days.

So now it's over to you, you have one months results to work with and figure out how many cups I will consume in a year!

Only hot tea counts, so you may need to take into account a bit of a drop off in the heat of summer (May-Aug). Although I do drink hot tea all year round and generally have a cup every morning on rising. That's all the clues I'm giving!

Comment here with the total # of mugs you think I'll consume this year through Dec. 31st. I will only leave the comments on this open until the end of February.

I will keep the score here and on Jan 1st 2010 I will go back in and see who got the closest. They will then receive a box of British tea goodies, including a rather nice drinking cup.

So come on, see if you can guess how much tea a Brit' consumes? I love to hear how much you drink too, but please specify if that is also your guess for me.

Ok, I'll take a wild guess and say 550 for 2009.

Vintage Tea said...

This got me thinking about how many cups of tea I drink and I think it's about 2190 a year which sounds crazy!!!!

I love tea too but I'm not sure that I drink more then 25 cups a month, cause i also like coffee. Now my guess for you is 773 cups
Don't know how I came to that number...just a pure guess!
Your blog is fun...!

gigihawaii said...

Hi! My guess is that you will drink 365 cups of tea this year.

I prefer iced coffee or iced tea, myself.

Troy said...

My guess would be 659 cups. I'm cheating actually as I read somewhere that tea is good for you providing you don't equal or exceed 660 cups a year (if you believe that, you'll believe anything, I just want to win).

[word verification - God's honest truth - was "winer" so that was close already]

Mare said...

I'm guessing 502! Gut feeling! Then I thought 603, but they say you should stick with your first answer and not change it...so, it's 502...tada!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

George and I each drink 2-3 cups of hot tea daily. One of those is green tea and the others are different kinds including flavored. I would guess that I drink about 912 cups of tea in a year.

Hugs,
Betsy

Sherri said...

Oh I think it will be 600 cups a year! I drink only tea, but I like it hot and cold. Sarah, you always have such fun things on here!

George said...

I'll take a guess at 563 cups of hot tea for the year.

Jan said...

I love tea, too. My guess is 498 cups of hot tea.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I have been ciphering on this in my capacity as a registered professional chemical engineer in the state of Oklahoma and my ciphering tells me that you will drink 744 cups of hot tea in 2009.

Sarah D said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one keeping track of my tea intake! Though I am including iced tea (perhaps 10 glasses in Jan) I have frightened myself at my monthly totals.

Sarah said...

Another Brit gal Sarah here...I reckon you'll consume 700 cups this year.

Mmm said...

I want to win, I want to win!! OK, OK, I'm saying 690. BTW, like the new photo on the side.

Vickie said...

997 for 2009 is my guess for you.

I am now pretty much exclusively a tea drinker of the hot variety. Coffee started playing a number on my stomach, so I switched to tea alone. I go in search of different types. Primarily I dig Twinings, Celestial Seasonings and Bigelow as brands.

743

Rob (Inukshuk Adventure) said...

Higher, higher....lower, lower.
I have no idea, say 809.

GutsyWriter said...

Not a single coffee?
711 cups is my guess.

Srg said...

I've done a few calculations based on your current consumption and the relation between relative heat and your stated decrease in consumption and I came up with about 675 cups for the year. What can I say - i love math!

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

That's all? I'm at about 3 cups a day. I'll guess 850.

Sandy said...

After a bit of noodling.. I am going to take a guess and say 685 cups.

A Brit in Tennessee said...

I'd say 820 ...

Bella Foxx said...

I'm going to guess 735.

Kay said...

Put me down for 823. :=)
I drink decaf green tea on most days but coffee mocha in the mornings. I remember liking the taste of cream and sugar in tea while in England but not here. I must be using the wrong kind of tea. Tsk.

karen said...

wow, i'm late here! don't know how i missed this one! I'm going with 752 cups for you, Brit' Gal! :-)

Pippa Bianco said...

I will take a sweeping guess at 524 mugs.....Mmmmm off to brew a pot now!

Tea Lady said...

1070 in a year. That is 3 cups on average per day.

Btw - I like that you have milk in your tea. I like milk in mine also.

My open roads said...

2200 is my bet :)

Pat said...

I'll say you will drink 788 cups of tea in 2009.

I drink about 490 cups (mugs) of tea each year. I learned to put milk in my tea when I lived with a family in Dundrum, near Dublin, Irleand in 1968-69.

Janet said...

Okay, I'll play, my guess is 565 cups, this year.
