In brief: Yes

Tea is derived from the camellia sinensis tree.
The leaves contain antioxidant polyphenols. The linus pauling institute reported a study that suggested that green tea can assist with glycemic control. Studies show that the polyphenols in green tea have an anti-carcinogenic effect as well as leading to a reduced heart disease death rate. Green tea has a diuretic effect so you lose water weight. >.

The Linus Pauling Institute reported a study that suggests green tea extracts acts as a plant-based alternative for glycemic control. Catechins in the tea may ^ thermogenesis. 3 to 4 cups/day can have health benefits. Drinking 5 or > cups of caffeinated green tea can lead to possible side effects.

In brief: Green Tea

There is no known health reason to drink green tea or not to drink green tea.
Medicine and science are silent about this. But, if you are being gullible to the fraudulent claims that green tea extract can help one lose weight then no this fake claim will only empty your pocketbook and not lead to any real or lasting weight loss.
