 Green Tea and Weight Loss
The study participants were on a weight maintenance diet of about 13% protein, 40% fat, and 47% carbohydrates, a "typical Western diet." Three times during the study, the men spent 24 hours in a special room where the investigators measured their respiration and energy expenditure.
The researchers therefore conclude that the increased calorie burning in the green tea group cannot be explained by caffeine intake alone.
The investigators suggest that the caffeine interacted with natural substances in green tea called flavonoids to alter the body's use of norepinephrine, a chemical transmitter in the nervous system, and increase the rate of calorie burning.

 Amazon.com: Green Japanese Sencha Tea, 125g: Gourmet Food   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The Japanese tea tradition began in the 9th century AD (during the Heian Period, 794 - 1192, when the Japanese capital was Heian-kyo, the present-day Kyoto), when Buddhist monks returning from diplomatic missions to China brought back tea, to which their Chinese brethren had introduced them as a means of intensifying alertness during meditation.
Inspired by Eisai's teachings that tea was a means to ensure longevity, its consumption quickly became popular at court, as well as among the feudal lords (daimyo) and among the newly formed samurai warrior class.
With the advent of tea merchants and tea houses between the 14th and 16th century, the custom of drinking tea spread further throughout Japan, even inspiring tea tasting competitions regarding the origin of the served tea in many towns and villages.
