    Less than one per day. I don't ever drink coffee, unless you count Dairy Queen "Moo-lattes" I drink iced tea probably an average of once every 2 weeks or so.

    No option for none?

    Two coffees in the morning. One tea at night. Occasionally an iced tea in between.

    There should be an option for none. I pretty much never drink them, mostly because my body seems to not process caffeine or something, as it does not keep me awake/wake me up in the least. To prove this, I once drank 3 Red Bulls (I don't drink those either normally), and was able to fall asleep 45 minutes later, normally.

    Another none. Caffeine doesn't work for me either... If I want to stay up, I've got to bulk up on the fast sugars. Caffeine just makes me really thirsty.

    I chose "I drink both 2-4", but it depends on where I am... when I'm in the States, it's practically coffee all day (sometimes none, most often one or two, when I'm stressed upto five)... but even though my parents drink tea, I typically can't be bothered brewing it properly...

    But when I'm in India? God help me... I drink three to six cups of chai every day... not only cause it's really good, but there's always someone else ready to give you some...

    I love it... you go to someone's house, and you're not leaving without chai and sweetmeats (mishti or mithaayi). And there are tea vendors every two feet on the roads... It gets to be quite a problem...

    My sister's new in-laws visited (they live in Tamil Nadu) for three months before and after the wedding, which was over a long weekend in the mountains. Every time I turned around her new MIL was handing me a cup of tea and it was SO FREAKING GOOD. I wish I had asked her to show me how she makes it. Other than that I'm pro-tea, in particular Southern sweetened iced tea, but I have to keep it down since I'm trying to shrink myself. Coffee's good too. I like it all.

    I generally always drink one cup of coffee in the morning.
    As far as the rest of the day, the doses vary depending on many factors:
    - How many hours of physical activity during the week I am doing: if I am cycling intensely 20+ hours a week, I can drink up to 4 coffees a day, if I am not doing anything I may only drink the one in the morning, if I am going to the gym and running I will take another one after lunch usually.
    - How near are finals: I try to make my caffeine-intake follow a parabola-like pattern with the peak around 2 days before the final: this allows me to be sufficiently revved up and concentrated up until the 2 days before; then while I cut the intake off the tension for the exam increases, and the two effects tend to cancel out - this makes my level of stress remain constant and allows me to avoid pre-exam anxiety - the caffeine withdrawal dumbs my nervous system down a little so that the nervousness is absorbed.

    I'm very sensitive to caffeine. If I drink a coffee after 5 pm, I can't sleep at night.

    Have you ever tried switching to tea around the exam itself? From what I've read it's supposed to have a simultaneous destressing effect (from theanine) which counters the caffeine's stimulating effect.
