By HealthysecretsPublished 10 months ago 3 min read

Tea is a drink that is enjoyed all over the world.

It can be made by pouring boiling water into tea leaves and soaking them for a few minutes so that the aroma penetrates into the water.

1. Green Tea

green tea

Green tea is one of the most well-known types of tea and has many health benefits.

It is also one of the most effective teas for weight loss. There is important evidence that green tea loses both weight and body fat.

In a 2008 study, 60 obese people continued on a standardized diet for 12 weeks, drinking either green tea or placebo on a regular basis. In the course of the study, those who drank green tea lost 7.3 pounds (3.3 kg) more than the placebo group .

According to another study, those who took green tea extract for 12 weeks had significantly reduced body weight, body fat, and waist circumference compared to the control group .

This may be because the green tea extract is particularly high in catechins. Catechin is a natural antioxidant that can promote metabolism and increase fat burning.


2. Puerh Tea

Puerh Tea, is a kind of fermented Chinese tea. It is often enjoyed after a meal, and has an earthy aroma that tends to develop the longer it’s stored.


Several animal studies have shown that Puerh tea can reduce blood glucose and blood triglyceride. And research on animals and humans showed that Puerh tea may help improve weight loss (trusted sources). In one study, 70 men were given capsules or placebo of Puerh-Tea extract. Three months later, those who took Puerh tea capsules lost about 2.2 pounds (1 kg) more than the placebo group (Trusted Source). Similar results were obtained in another study in rats, showing that Puerh tea extract had anti-obesity effects and helped reduce weight gain.

3. Black tea

Black tea is a type of tea that is more oxidized than other types of tea, such as green tea, white tea, and oolong tea.

Oxidation is a chemical reaction that occurs when tea leaves are exposed to the air, resulting in a brown color and the characteristic dark color of black tea. There are different types and blends of black tea, including popular varieties such as

Earl Gray and English breakfast.

Some studies have shown that black tea may be effective in weight control. According to a study of 111 people, drinking three cups of tea a day for three months significantly increased weight loss and reduced waist circumference compared to drinking a control drink such as caffeine. ..

5. White tea

Unlike other types of tea, white tea is minimally processed and is harvested when the tea plant is young.

White tea has a unique flavor that is very different from other types of tea. It has a slightly delicate and slightly sweet taste. The benefits of white tea have been well studied, from improving oral health to killing cancer cells in several test tube studies .


White tea may also help with weight loss and body fat, although further research is needed.

6. Herbal tea

Herbal teas are made by steeping herbs, spices, and fruits in hot water. They differ from traditional teas in that they do not typically contain caffeine and are not made from leaves of Camellia sinensis.

Herbal teas that are popular include rooibos tea, ginger tea, rosehip tea, and hibiscus tea. Although the ingredients and formulations of herbal teas vary greatly, some studies have found that herbal teas may aid in weight loss and fat loss.

In conclusion

Though many people drink tea for its soothing qualities and delicious taste, each cup may also contain a plethora of health benefits. Drinking tea instead of high-calorie beverages like juice or soda may help reduce overall calorie intake and lead to weight loss. Certain types of tea have also been shown in animal and test-tube studies to aid in weight loss while inhibiting fat cell formation. However, human studies are required to investigate this further. Furthermore, many types of tea contain beneficial compounds such as flavones and catechins, which may aid in weight loss.

A cup or two of tea per day, when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, could help you lose weight.
