Guidelines for safe consumption of caffeine

‘Guidelines for safe consumption of caffeine indicate that an intake of up to 400mg daily is safe for adults. Average tea consumption in the UK, at 2 to 3 servings daily, fits within this. Given the potential benefits of tea for health, consumption could rise to 8 servings daily and still be within safe limits’
