Yes - too much: Green tea in moderation is quite healthy. Don't recommend more than 5 cups per day.

Is there such thing as too much green tea? That's pretty much all I drink. Usually 4-5 mugs a day.
Yes: As the song goes, "Too much fun what's that mean? It's like too much money, there's no such thing. It's like a girl too pretty, ..." But for everything else in life, do in moderation. Plain green tea at 4 mugs of 12 ounces each day sounds ok. That means without creamers, sugars, or other sweeteners... and without tapioca pearls (boba).

Sort of: Green tea is healthy, but also can keep you awake and has some diuretic effect (makes you pee) drink up to 3-4 cups of green tea per day, otherwise water is great if it keeps you up, and you are on a typical schedule, don't drink it after 3-4 pm.

Probably Not: Green tea certainly has anti-oxidant properties, but most do not have the anti-inflammatory properties that reduce fevers. (however, the liquids will help if you have a fever.) I suppose there may be some formulations of green tea mixed with other herbals that due have anti-fever properties, however, drink these as with caution as they likely could have have other side effects.
