    Five servings of oolong tea per day increases the number of calories burned per day by 2.9 percent, or about 66 calories per day, and the amount of fat that is burned by 12 percent in men according to a recent study. Full-strength oolong tea increases calories burned by 66 calories per day

    The 2.9 percent increase in metabolism from oolong tea accounted for an additional 66 calories per day.

    An additional 8 grams of fat burned per day

    The 12 percent increase in fat oxidation when the men were given oolong tea accounted for an additional 8 grams of fat per day.

    Half-strength oolong tea had very little effect

    Drinking half-strength tea (7.5 grams per day versus 15 grams per day) had almost no effect on metabolism or fat oxidation.

    Drinking half-strength tea increased metabolism by only 11 calories per day (0.4 percent), and fat oxdation by only 1 extra gram of fat per day (1.6 percent).

    Therefore, the amount of tea is very important.

    Caffeinated water increases metabolism 3.4%

    At a different time, the men were given caffeinated water containing 270 mg of caffeine per day. This increased their daily metabolism by 3.4 percent, the equivalent of 79 calories per day.

    Caffeinated water burned an extra 5 grams of fat burned per day

    When the men were given caffeinated water fat oxidation increased by 8.2 percent or 5 grams of fat per day.

    Conclusion: Tea might lower body fat

    “Tea consumption could have some beneficial effect on an individual???s ability to maintain a lower body fat content,” the researchers concluded.

    Amount of tea used: 10 ounces of tea, 5 times per day

    The amount of oolong tea used was 15 grams per day. This is quite a lot. This is the equivalent of about five half-tablespoons of oolong tea. The men were given 10 ounces of tea, five times per day.

    Subjects: 12 men, 25-60 years old

    The study involved twelve men that were 25- to 60-years-old and had a body mass index of 18 to 30.

    Green tea vs Oolong tea vs Black tea: What is the difference?

    Green tea, oolong tea and black tea all come from the same leaves.

    Green tea in unfermented (non-oxidized).

    Oolong tea is partially fermented (partially oxidized).

    And black tea is fully fermented (fully oxidized).

    Comment: Oolong tea may be the most effective for weight control

    The research suggests to me that oolong tea may be the most potent at helping with weight control because of compounds which are produced during partial fermentation (partial oxidation).
