    Green Tea contains quite a bit of caffeine, so side effects of too much caffeine is what you should watch out for. Everyone is different, so a certain dose, like your 4 cups daily, affects everyone differently. You just have to judge the amount you can handle yourself. If you get jittery, anxious, headaches, or insomnia, then these could mean you're consuming too much.
