Probably fine: Provided that you are otherwise in good medical health, drinking this amount of water and tea during your illness will be tolerable. If your tea is caffeinated, you could be jittery after this amount. Also your urination will compensate for the extra hydration. Normally 8-10 8 ounce glasses of water daily is usual fluid recommendation. This can adjust upwards or downward depending on activities.
