As far as I could find, there is no study saying "green tea helps you to loose weight." What I could find was "green tea helps to prevent excessive blood sugar, eventually there is a possibility to prevent excessive production of fat." Importantly, these studies are just talking about the possibility and there is no guarantee.
A study published in the January, 2005 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded "Daily consumption of tea containing 690 mg catechins for 12 wk reduced body fat, which suggests that the ingestion of catechins might be useful in the prevention and improvement of lifestyle-related diseases, mainly obesity."

I live in a college town and the only place I've found food/ingridents that comes close to having things like that is at the local Kroger. And Kroger does not have tea leaves, well, at least the one where I live doesnt.
