How many cups of green tea a day?

We sell our Japanese green tea because we are proud of its quality, taste, and freshness. The most common questions we receive from customers are how many cups of green tea a day can you drink and how much green tea is too much. 

Most people are interested in imbibing as much of the healthy antioxidants as possible to maximize green tea's health benefits commonly but without overdoing the caffeine. 

According to experts, the safe number of cups of green tea a day is 2-3, depending on the type of green tea and how it is prepared. Some types of green tea are naturally higher in caffeine than others. Also, the brewing time, serving size, and temperature of the brew also affect the amount of caffeine found in a cup of green tea. 

A cup of green tea typically contains 25-29mg of caffeine, which is less than coffee. However excessive caffeine can lead to anxiety, irregular sleeping pattern, stomach discomfort, and headaches for those insensitive to it.

If you are worried about the number of cups of green tea a day you should be drinking, then it would be best to consult your doctor for advice, especially if you are an expectant mother. High levels of caffeine are to be avoided during pregnancy.

In conclusion, drinking 2-3 cups of green tea a day is a safe and healthy habit that can provide numerous health benefits.

However, if you are sensitive to caffeine try to avoid drinking green tea in the late afternoon, and if the urge takes you switch to low-caffeine alternative green teas such as Hojicha or Kukicha.
