I am a 14 years old male and wondering if consuming caffeine is ok. I mean, how much is ok. I usually consume about 3 to 5 cups of black tea a day, sometimes a cappuccino or latte macchiato but my mom is worried that it has a severe on my health. I do not have any important medical background.

Hi, 14, age don't use caffine black tea ok 2 times a day avoid coffee.
Only 2 cup is enough.
Dear user, 4oo milligrams of caffeine is ok, which is equivalent to 4 cups of coffee, as of now ok, but its better to reduce the quantity of intake, so try to gradually decrease the intake. Take care.
