Abstract: This experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of Iranian Green Tea (IGT) powder in diet onblood parameters and carcass traits of broilers. We used four treatments consisting (Basal diet+IGT 5 g kg–1 feed, Basaldiet+IGT 10 g kg–1 feed, Basal diet+IGT 15 g kg–1 feed and control) and three replicates (15 birds per pen). Results of this study showed that effects of green tea on cecum weight, LDL and Cholesterol were significant (p<0.05). LDL and Cholesterol were high, that related to control and 15 g green tea groups (p = 0.05), respectively. Furthermore, the highest and the lowest weight mean of cecum were related to 15 and 10 g kg–1 green tea groups (p = 0.05), respectively. However, additives had no significant effects on Glucose, Triglyceride (TG), HDL and other carcass traits (p>0.05). Generally, this experiment indicated that treatment with Iranian Green Tea (IGT) powder don’t have positive effects on the broiler except to decrease of blood plasma LDL and Cholesterol reducing the cardiovascular diseases.
