Please pardon my unrefined tastes, but I drink tea with everything. However, I brew the tea, using green tea and a mix of lemon and lime juices with organic cane sugar. I try to make it not too sweet, and since I have many children, we drink A LOT of it. But the real reason that we drink so much per day has more to do with my and my husband's belief that most people do not drink enough. If you are mainly made of water, would it not stand to reason that you should constantly replenish? Of course, drinking too much water in too short of a time is unhealthy because you deplete your sodium and electrolytes, but at regular intervals throughout the day should be fine.
