Oolong Tea has a reputation for being the best tea for weight loss. This is because it is chock full of the antioxidants with catechins and tea polyphenols that help boost metabolism and help block fat-building enzymes to promote a healthy weight. 

 

Green Tea

Green tea, also filled with catechins, has several health benefits ranging from your heart to your bones. These antioxidants (such as epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)) have been found to reduce chances of heart attack and certain types of cancer. Also, drinking green tea regularly can help lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and keep bones strong to prevent arthritis.

 

White Tea

White tea is less processed than other forms of tea, therefore the polyphenols are extra potent. White tea also contains ECGC, which is said to prevent new fat cells from forming and fight signs of aging, such as wrinkles. Studies have shown that drinking white tea on a regular basis may prevent chronic diseases and may help reduce the risk of various cancers.
