Green tea has been shown to increase BMR (basal metabolic rate) - are you trying to lose weight? Your pic suggests you don't need to, if I may say so .

If you are trying to boost your metabolism in terms of increasing energy levels by increasing respiration, then the obvious choice is not tea, but B group vitamins:

Riboflavin (B2) is necessary for FAD, needed to produce ATP

Niacin (B3) is a precursor of NAD (needed as in above)

Pantothenic acid (B5) is part of Co-enzyme A, which introduces 2-carbon groups into the Krebs cycle.

Pyridoxine (B6) is needed for deamination and decarboxylation reactions.

TRY IT OUT!!
