In brief: Green tea

Green tea has a small effect on weight loss.
Unless you are particularly sensitive - most people can drink up to 5 cups of green tea per day without side effects.

In brief: Ha ha!

No, very little between 2 pounds down to ONE POUND UP.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23235664 Turning fat directly to heat KILLS; luckily green tea doesn't work! Perhaps the ice? it takes one calorie to heat 1 liter of fluid one degree. 38 calorie per liter of iced tea. consider eating less, exercising more and reading http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23235664 when that doesn't work.

In brief: Should be safe

but need to eat a good balanced diet, moderate portions and exercise to loose weight.
Tea alone will not cause weight loss.
