Useless test: This test is not of any value. So you do not have to worry about any value in the urine. If you have any concerns, get a liver function tests (LFTs) panel done.

How Long does green tea stay in your system and will it give a positive reading in a urine sample?
About 8 hours, no:
Most of the chemicals in green tea are excreted within 8 hours, though trace amounts might persist up to 24 hours. I don't know why anyone would be testing for green tea in a urine sample as it is not considered a drug of abuse. If you were tested for caffeine it might show up but generally urine tests don't check caffeine.

For detection of a pathogen in the urine and getting a urine sample test done, how much can that range in price without an insurance?
It's done at the lab: At a doctor's office, a culture to identify a pathogen is rarely done (that's done at the lab). A basic urinalysis is done at the doctor's office, and can be about $25 (but the office visit costs even more). Most labs have a "cash price list" and don't mind sharing it (just call or walk in and ask). One guess is $25 for the urinalysis and $50 for the culture, but that's just a guess. ...Read more
