Green tea does increase your metabolism, albeit only slightly.

Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat.
One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese. Some think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for fat-burning effects.
