Abstract: The anti-obesity effects of Hubei Qingzhuan tea on rats were investigated. The results showed, compared with the obese control group, New Qingzhuan tea of this year(NQT) and the Qingzhuan tea which had been stored for 10 years(QTS) reduced the body weights of rats, Lee’s index and the ratio of body fat and mass significantly. Both teas possessed obvious effects on lowering the serum and liver level of TC, TG, MDA, increasing HDL-C levels and the activities of SOD, GSH-PX. The observation on the fat tissue showed that both teas could reduce the accumulation and volume of fat cells. As a results, New Qingzhuan tea had the effects of anti-obesity and antioxidation. The effects of anti-obesity increased with the dose adding of NQT, and the anti-obesity effects of QTS were better than that of the NQT.
