8-10 glasses: There is no firm guideline on how much water to drink daily. But, there are benefits to staying hydrated. For you, this is probably 8-10 glasses of water per day. Another way to know if you're hydrated sufficiently is to drink enough until you have clear urine (not yellow).

Good idea: You may want to taper the tea intake over several days, otherwise you may experience caffeine withdrawal headache or other symptoms.
