Dear Pally
You can certainly drink teas such as rooibos, Earl Grey or green tea, instead of water to provide your daily liquid intake. Adults need to ingest 2,5 litres of liquid per day and liquid includes all liquids (teas, coffee, milk, fruit juice, cold drinks, soda and bottled water, clean, safe tap water, etc). There is no need to restrict your liquid intake to drinking only water, esp in winter when it is so cold.
