    And you can even offer to your friends

    Hi,

    Please correct the following.
    Since you take tea too much, you should carry a vacuum flask with you wherever you go. And you can even offer to your friends on the way in case you meet them.

    Perhaps:

    Since you drink so much tea you should carry a Thermos bottle with you wherever you go. That way you can have some when you need it, and you can even offer some to your friends.

    Or just "a Thermos."

    Is "Since you take tea too much," incorrect?

    For me, it is very strange.

    Is it OK if I use "too much" before tea?

    Yes, you can say, for example:

    I drink too much tea.

    or

    If I drink too much tea I get sick.

    or

    It's not good to drink too much tea.

    There are, of course, other possibilities.

    Re: And you can even offer to your friends

    Note that Tarheel used "drink", not "take".

    Although "to take tea" is a known phrase, it's rather old-fashioned and refers to having tea, sandwiches and cake in the afternoon. If you're just talking about cups of tea, use "drink".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: And you can even offer to your friends

    Do you understand the difference between "too much" and "so much"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
