Obesity is a growing concern not only in America but in the whole world. While there are many ways to reduce weight such as exercising, taking a weight conscious diet etc, there’s tea too.

Tea is said to have anti-inflammatory properties which helps to reduce cholesterol in the body. Let’s have a look at some of the various types of tea that helps to lose weight.

Some types of tea that can help you lose weight:

Black Tea

Most of us want easy ways to lose weight, and aren’t interested in hitting the gym and going through excruciating training sessions. This is why we turn to alternatives, such as drinking tea.

Weight gain is mostly due to eating an improper diet and not following a healthy lifestyle. This habit causes you to gain weight as you are not able to burn the calories that you consume.

The solution for many lies in consuming black tea. It can help you shed some pounds rapidly as it has antioxidants that help in reducing body fat and increasing the rate of metabolism so that you can digest the food easily by breaking the fat more quickly.

Green Tea

Green tea is one of the most effective weight reducing drinks as it not processed like white tea and also has a higher amount of polyphenols that help to reduce fats and burn calories. Green tea are of many types but the most effective one to reduce weight is oolong tea. It contains polyphenols and catechins that have anti-inflammatory properties and help reduce cholesterol from the chest and belly regions.

The EGCG in the catechins of green tea are said to speed up the fat burning process that is carried out by the liver and also increases the metabolism rate. Consuming green tea regularly also decreases your appetite, hence, your calorie intake reduces as well. Less calorie intake mean less fat in your body.

Teami Tea

Teami tea is another type of tea that is equally effective as green and black tea when it comes to reducing weight. It is composed of many natural ingredients such as oolong, rhubarb root, dandelion leaf, lotus leaf, ginger root and many more. Like every other tea, it can be mixed in a cup water (one teaspoon of Teami tea).

This tea does it all. It works as an anti-inflammatory beverage and reduces the extra fat in your belly to make you looks smart again. Other than that, studies have shown that people who are on Teami tea have a faster metabolism than the ones who do not consume this type of tea.

Chamomile And Lavender Tea

Chamomile and lavender tea contain antioxidant that help reduce stress, which is a major cause of weight gain. Once your stress levels are low, you will find it easier to lose weight.

Other than this, these two teas also help reduce your consumption of food by making you feel fuller. As a result, you intake less calories, which means your body now has less calories to burn.


These are a few out of many teas that can help you lose weight quickly. To have enhanced results, consume tea while exercising daily.
