Alone, I am a group of three.

When the leader becomes the trailer then I just did me.

Then reverse, turn back, I'm seven of twelve times two,

The one that's last to first is drunk second most by you.

If you've found me, don't yet brag or boast,

To finish, you must find where I'm found first, second, and third most.

EAT is a group of three letters.

When the leader becomes the trailer then I just did me

ATE is the past tense of eat.

Then reverse, turn back, I'm seven of twelve times two

ETA is the 7th of the 24-letter Greek alphabet.

The one that's last to first is drunk second most by you

The alphabetically last letter T first, gives TEA, the second most consumed drink after water.

To finish, you must find where I'm found first, second, and third most.

These letters are the most common in the English language, in order: E, T, A
