Abstract: According to a Chinese belief Oolong tea is effective for the control of body weight. Few controlled studies, however, have been conducted to measure the impact of tea on energy expenditure of humans. To study metabolic rate and fat oxidation in men, Rumpler and others from USA and Japan used a randomized cross-over design to compare 24 hr energy expenditure (EE) of12 men consuming each of four treatments: 1. water, 2. full strength tea (daily allotment brewed from 15 gm of tea) 3.half-strength tea (brewed from 7.5 gm tea) and 4. water containing 270 mg caffeine, equivalent to the concentration in the full strength tea treatment.
