Our expert says:
The adult requirement for liquid intake is 2,5 litres in TOTAL per day. So you do not have to drink additional water if you are already having 2 litres of green tea a day, otherwise you may well wash important minerals out of your body such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium which can lead to electrolyte imbalances. I would suggest that you use one of the better known brands of green tea that are available on the SA market and avoid lesser known brands which may not be so hygienically packed.
