Are There Any Cons?
The only cons of green tea is that it contains caffeine—but it has only 30-60 mg caffeine in 180 to 240 ml tea, as compared to over 100 mg caffeine in 240 ml of coffee. That isn't much caffeine.
No side effects have been reported. However those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or attempting to conceive should consult their healthcare practitioner before starting this health routine.
