According to my colorie counting book: Tea(mug) with semi-skimmed milk is about 14 calories. With one sugar its about 34.
it depends how much milk you put in, tea has negligable so the calorie count is made up of the milk added, so try to work out how much and look at the calorie count of milk per 100ml (obvioisly this is affected by which type of milk skimmed milk has the least calories,whole milk the most) then divide it by the amount of milk you usually use (half for 50ml,etc) you will need a measuring jug which measures small amounts. i don't think there is particulary strong guidance for how many cups you should limit yourself to on health grounds, but i do know you are not recommeded to have more than 3 or 4 cups of earl grey daily. some diet plans give you a daily milk allowance for use in tea and cereal etc this is usally about half a pint of semi-skimmed or skimmed.
Sorry this isn't a particularly technical answer but as to how much you should have in a day I think it is about 4 cups but then it has way less caffeine than coffee and is meant to be quite good for you with possible cancer prevention etc.
I tend to get tense, jittery and queasy if I have more than two mugs in about an eight hour period. Does anyone else?
your not liking the caffeine - some people are really sensitive to it - if you like to drink lots of tea look out for "red bush" tea - used to be the preserve of the health food shops but you can get it in tescos now i believe - it tastes and looks like normal tea but has no caffeine in it - so go crazy pigface and have that 3rd cup (",)
I don't think there is a limit is there? the more the better.
