    AN IN VITRO STUDY using brown adipose tissue from a rat found that a preparation of dried tea leaves increased thermogenesis when used alone and more strongly when combined with ephedrine.

    Used alone the tea leave preparation increased thermogenesis 20 to 500% in a dose-dependent fashion.

    Equal concentrations of caffeine had no effect. Combining ephedrine and a moderate concentration of tea leave extract also increased thermogenesis 400 to 500%.

    An equal concentration of ephedrine and caffeine increased thermogenesis 200%.

    The tea leaves contain both polyphenols (principally catechins) and caffeine.
