Hello is it correctly to ask "do you drink much tea?" it sounds weird for me, but i haven't found any explanation saying it's incorrect. As I know "much" and "a lot of" interchangeably used with uncountable nouns, don't they?

I always ask 'do you drink a lot of tea?"


Generally, you can use either

Both are fine as a question. As a statement, "much" is used to express excess:

Do you drink much tea?

He drinks too much tea.

But NOT: He drinks much tea.


Do you drink a lot of tea?

He drinks a lot of tea.
