There are various types of tea available around the world but a few of them are found to possess extremely beneficial properties. The particular plant species named Camellia sinensis has the potential to produce various types of tea using a completely unique processing technique such as half-oxidized tea as oolong tea, reduction of tea as green tea, and completely oxidized tea as black tea. The process of oxidation is catalyzed by endogenous enzymes and during this time catechins are altered into polymerized polyphenols and caffeine are decomposes which might yield benefits and risks on different physiologic functions. It has been found that consuming oolong tea or caffeine will enhance the energy expenditure but in case of fat oxidation it is stimulated by only oolong tea.

The presence of caffeine in oolong tea is the basic reason behind activation of energy metabolism by increasing heart rate. Recently, a research team from the International Institute for Integrative Sleep Medicine at the University of Tsukuba found the consumption of oolong tea to surge fat breakdown without any effects of caffeine. The study on the effects of oolong consumption and caffeine was well understood through their effects on fat metabolism and energy expenditure.

The latest study showed 20% increase in fat metabolism in people consuming oolong tea. Furthermore, this tea was found to decrease respiratory quotient compared to caffeine during sleep. The researchers are trying to connect the relevance if controlling body weight with the stimulatory effects of oolong tea on breakdown of fat when sleeping. The effects of this tea in translating into a real body fat loss product are a huge breakthrough the health sector has been waiting for. The decaffeinated and caffeinated oolong tea could help better understand the components of tea and the role of each in the fat breakdown.
