Tea can help in weight loss but these antioxidants in tea which aid in weight-loss are neutralized if milk is added to it. The antioxidants present in tea reduce the amount of fat absorption in the gut and can also cut cholesterol.

The research was conducted by an Indian scientist, Devajit Bortharkar from the Tea Research Association in Assam. He has found that the fat-fighting ability of compounds like theaflavins and thearubigins is canceled out by the proteins present in cow's milk. The antioxidants present in the tea form complexes with the milk protein which helps them to precipitate.

Therefore it is advisable to drink tea without adding milk. Scientists are carrying out further research for making the antioxidants less susceptible to being neutralized by milk.

I'm a tea drinker and I don't add milk to it. I didn't even know that milk can be added to tea. This research can help tea drinkers utilize fully what tea can offer: by not adding milk.
