This site should help (kellymom).  The article is about herbs and includes green tea.

This is what Kellymom says. I drink green tea and still breastfeed my 10 month old. I just get the decaf.

Green tea comes from the same plant as black tea - the only difference is in the processing. Like black tea, green tea contains caffeine, so limit use if your child is unusually sensitive to caffeine. Because of its caffeine content, you may want to restrict your intake of green tea during pregnancy.
