Not only is tea delicious, warming and calming but it has been associated with many health benefits, including protecting cells from damage and reducing the risk of heart disease along side aiding weight loss. Now you’re probably wondering, well what types of teas aid weight loss and I’m here to answer the question. 

Green Tea 

One of the most well known types tea and is linked with numerous health benefits. In one study from 2008, 60 obese individuals who followed a standard diet for 12 weeks while also regularly drinking green tea lost 3.3kg more weight then those that didn’t drink the green tea. This miracle tea is especially high in catechins, naturally occurring antioxidants that may boost your metabolism and increase fat burning. 

Black Tea 

Black tea is high in flavones and has been associated with reductions in weight, BMI and waist circumference. Numerous studies have been conducted that found drinking three cups of black tea each day for three months significantly increases weight loss and reduced waist circumference. 

Puerh Tea

This is a type of Chinese black tea that has been fermented. Studies have shown that this tea may lower blood sugar and blood triglycerides, enhance weight loss and suppress appetite. 

Oolong Tea 

Oolong tea is described as having a fruity, fragrant aroma and a unique flavour and enhances weight loss by improving fat burning and speeding up metabolism. In one study the researchers have found that compared to water, oolong tea increases energy expenditure by 2.9%, the equivalent of burning an additional 281 calories per day, on average. 

White Tea

This tea is minimally processed and harvested while the tea plant is still young. It has a distinct flavour tasting subtle, delicate and slightly sweet. White tea offers various health benefits such as improving oral health, killing cancer cells and aiding weight loss.
