My kids are all concerned about the amount of tea I drink.

Resolved Question:

My kids are all concerned about the amount of tea I drink. I'm retired, exercise a lot, read a lot and drink about 10 mugs of hot tea a day, which I enjoy. Is it too much?

This is Dr. David

most likely this not too much

10 mugs of hot tea is about 5 cups of coffee worth of caffeine

if your kidneys are functioning ok, then you should be fine. you should see your GP every year and get blood testing to make sure your kidneys are functioning fine with normal creatinine and BUN levels

do you sleep ok at night, sometimes excessive caffeine during the day can affect your sleep at night time.
