Our bodies would lose a lot of water every day, especially in hot summer, thus we need to take in plenty of water in time to meet the demand of our bodies. Whereas, tea contains a variety of vitamins and other substances and drinking it can indeed supplement water in the body. But it is not a recommended lifestyle for one to replace drinking water with tea each day. In terms of proportion, some experts pointed out that each person needs to supplement his body with 1.6 to 2.5L of water daily, while tea only accounts for about 600ml of it. Consequently, drinking tea alone cannot meet the human body’s need for water. 

In addition, the ingredients of tea differ from that of water, and most of these ingredients need to be metabolized by the body by releasing water to facilitate its absorption. Hence, drinking tea especially strongly instead of water for a long time is likely to cause hydropenia problems.
