When you say green tea, does that apply to the hot tea only or do teas like Arizona green tea have similar effects?

I can't speak for: "arizona" brand tea. Some people use green tea extract to assist with weight loss. However, I would not anticipate any significant change unless this is paired with exercise ; a healthy nutrition plan. A study by maastricht university (holland) noted green tea has catechins ; caffeine w inhibition of o-methyl- transferase ; phosphodiesterase which effects thermogenesis ; fat oxidation.

Green Tea & Obesity:
Nope. Absolutely not. In fact in what you describe you have two obvious problems. Caffeine will never lead your body to lose weight. And, honey is sugar. Sugar leads to increasing weight and never to weight loss.
