Wu-Yi Tea - Real Weight Loss or Hype?

Wu-yi Tea
Wu-yi Tea

Wu-Yi Tea is an amazing natural drink that burns fat and adds additional health benefits. Read on for an interesting look at wu-yi tea as a regular part of your daily life. Picture this, you run into an old friend whom you haven't seen in ages and he/she has lost a significant amount of weight to the point that you almost don't recognize them. You exchange greetings and you just have to ask, "How did you lose so much weight, you look great!" Your friend smiles and says "Ancient Chinese Secret..." You say "No, really..."

Well, if your friend has been drinking wu-yi tea lately then he/she might just be telling the truth about that "Ancient Chinese Secret". If you're reading this then you've most likely heard about wu-yi tea and by drinking it regularly one can lose weight easily. Hold on, can you really lose weight drinking wu-yi tea everyday or is it just all hype? Those who want to lose weight, Americans especially, want to know...

In the United States, the percentage of overweight individuals has always been much higher compared to other countries. Over the past few years that rate has been rising at an alarming rate. Billions are made each year by the health and fitness companies on products like supplements, diet systems, etc, yet we still have a large population of overweight and obese individuals. People flock to the newest "in" or "fad" diet these days. Not surprisingly wu-yi tea has now made it's way to notoriety.

The Origin of Wu-Yi Tea

According to accounts, wu-yi tea's origin dates back to over 400 years ago in China. As we discuss "wu-yi tea", note that we are actually talking about oolong tea which may be a more familiar name to most than wu-yi. Oolong tea is often referred to as wu-yi tea as it is harvested from Mt. Wuyi Shan in the Fujian Province of China.

Since it's original discovery wu-yi tea has developed into much more than just a simple drinking pleasure. Drinking tea has evolved into a respected art practiced in many ceremonies of various customs. On top of that the tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for its natural health benefits.

Lose Weight Using Wu-yi Tea

Because of the various health benefits, wu-yi tea has found it's way to the top of the list lately primarily because of it's natural qualities of burning fat. What natural quality does this particular tea have? Well, it's called "polyphenol", and not only is it found in oolong tea, but green and black tea as well. It just so happens that oolong tea is king when it comes to polyphenol as green and black have less amounts.

A polyphenol is a bio-active ingredient that stimulates lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) by activating enzymes that dissolve fat (triglycerides) in your body. This in turn speeds up your metabolism! (increasing your resting metabolic rate) Thus, drinking oolong tea regularly enhances the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.

Interesting Example of Weight Loss

An interesting example of losing weight while drinking wu-yi tea can be found at this Wu-Yi Tea website. While searching for studies on the weight loss effects of drinking oolong on a regular basis I stumbled across what the writer of this site calls a "common man's case study of losing weight with wu-yi tea". The writer claims that he drank oolong tea daily for two months. At the end of two months the writer lost 20 lbs. Pretty impressive if in fact his claims are true. Before and after pictures are included as proof. I found no reason to dispute his testimony and actually found the site to be interesting, humorous at times, and got the impression of a sincere, up front and honest tone overall. As the writer states, maybe this tea truly is one of those "ancient chinese secrets" when it comes to losing weight. Should you be interested to look into these real results further for yourself, the site can be found at Wu-yi Tea Results.

Other Health Benefits of Wu-yi Tea

On top of the natural process of burning fat, wu-yi tea also has other health benefits that have been scientifically studied and documented. Case studies showing that tea reduces the risk of heart attack, protects against cancer, strengthens bones and protects against tooth plaque and decay.

As noted, Chinese culture incorporated tea in traditional medicine for hundreds of years and to this day continue to do so. With so many natural health benefits to provide, wu-yi tea should definitely be a consideration for anyone who is health conscious and/or looking to lose weight and keep it off.

"We specialize in teas from China. Each region produces different varieties of tea, each with its own distinct attributes. Our tea producers take pride in the aesthetics of each tea and carefully hand process the teas making each one look as special and unique as it tastes. As you discover all the nuances of tastes in these teas, it is easy to understand how Chinese teas are a world unto themselves."

How Wu-Yi Tea is Grown and Harvested

The intricate growing and harvesting processes necessary to produce authentic wu-yi tea is definitely time consuming, which is the reason this type of tea is more expensive than others. Any manufacturers that skip any of these crucial steps aren't producing wu-yi tea the way it was intended and aren't really creating genuine wu-yi tea.

Step One: Following centuries of ancient tradition, wu-yi tea leaves are picked in the early morning sun and then immediately set out to dry and age for a certain amount of time, which will actually depend upon the month of year and the positioning of the sun.

Step Two: After drying, tea leaves are carefully shaken into woven baskets crafted from bamboo, which is said to "tenderize" the edges of the leaf, and then laid out on woven drying mats for curing.

Step Three: After two to three days of curing, the leaves are brought indoors for the fermenting process, which is critical for ensuring the most delicious tea that will also be packed full of powerful antioxidants and fat-burning properties.

Step Four: Next, leaves are hand-rubbed, which stimulates the releases of the various beneficial chemicals and enzymes and also enhances the tea's flavor. Sorting and careful checking for quality are done before the process is complete.

Step Five: You, the consumer, drink the tea at least twice a day, enjoying natural weight loss qualities and the additional positive benefits of wu-yi tea.

I have been doing this WuYi tea for about a month.....I have been on a diet before and lost weight. drinking this tea I think is just a supplement....I do however have better results drinking tea along with diet and exercise but nothing real significant. for example on diet and exercise alone I could probably lose about 2 pounds per week but add in the Tea then maybe 2.25 pounds

Heather Peters 8 years ago

I just purchased four boxes of this stuff and am drinking my first cup as we speak. I feel like I've got more energy and don't feel hungry (which I always do) Perhaps it's mind over matter, but I feel full and it seems to have given me extra energy. I hope with diet and excersize (which I already do) it will help me loose this extra ten pounds..

I say "buyer beware" or try at "ur own risk" etc...well i just ordered the tea and its the first time i've ever bought something based off the internet or magazines etc...if it works for me....i'll definitely write about it! :) i'm 180 now so lets hope just like everything else i do..lol it works! haa

WuYi tea works, it flushes all the crap that gets stuckin your digestive track out, after about two weeks of enjoying this tea, you will notice you don't feel bloated after eating pizza, bread, or any of your favorite foods. I have lost 4 pounds and have not been watching what i eat at all. i enjoy the tea after big meals and in the morning. it also helps clear up your skin from accne and blemished.

I have to agree that research on any thing is a must these days. There is an Oriental store here and that is where I am going to look for the oolong tea (Wu-Yi tea). I hope all goes well and I will update as the weeks go on.

Lisa 8 years ago

I've just gotten the tea and quite excited to start, I've heard great things about the tea. Of course eating and excersice would help. As a mother it's hard to get out there and excersice so for all the other parents out there good luck in achieving your goals in weight loss. I'm really hoping that this tea will help.

THis is my third day of drinking the tea and I haven't lost any weight yet but for some reason I feel lighter. lol. Maybe I'm just less bloated. It has only been 3 days though. I"ll keep everyone informed. Is there anyone out here that's had success with the tea???

Christie 8 years ago

I would like to hear success stories - Is there any. Does this tea really work?


Lisa 8 years ago

I've been drinking a mix of oolong and pu-erh tea (from Generation Tea) for the past 10 days and I have lost 10 pounds so far. (I was bloated when I started though. Oh, and I started at 184 lbs) I've also just started college and have been doing a lot of walking and I've been averaging around 1,000 calories a day. So yeah, I haven't been eating much but I feel fine. But the thing is, I haven't had sugar since I"ve been here and the reason why I've had so much trouble in the past is cravings. I really think it's the tea, but I haven't had sugar cravings at all! It's amazing! =) So now it's really easy for me to eat less. I'm also really motivated and determined to lose weight right now, so that helps me not eat as much too. I really hope this works for the long haul!

Lisa 8 years ago

Yeah, I have lost 10 pounds so far, and I've been using the bathroom a lot most days (like today) =D, but that could be that I'm drinking more than I used to as well. Maybe I should point out that the tea I'm using is loose leaf; I think it might be more potent. Also, I'm not going to directly credit the tea to my weight loss, but more to the fact that I'm simply not craving food/sugar anymore. I think that's because I read oolong or pu-erh (forgot which) helps stabalize blood sugar levels. I know before I'd be going crazy with sugar cravings by now! But, It would still be easy for me to eat more if I wanted. (Like I wouldn't mind eating right now, lol.) I really hope what you ordered helps you! But just in case it doesn't and you'd like to try what I got, it's the "Little Bear Tea Wulong & Pu-erh Blend" from generationtea.com.

FOLKS stop living in a fantasy world. If you real want to be fit and look great its going to take patience (time) hard work (exercise) and dicipline (eating right! and less!). Weight loss is (20% exercise) and (80% diet). When I say diet I don't mean going on some magic diet but I mean making long term lifestyle changes to your eating habits. Tea is great and should be part of your daily intake but remember alone it won't help you achieve your goals. It has to be part of a well balanced nutritious diet rich in fruits, vegetables and wholesome foods. I don't believe in dieting and I don't think it works. Dieting is like trying to fool your body but our body is a lot smarter than we think it is and that's why diets normally don't work. You have to make permanent lifestyle adjustments in the way you eat, sleep and activity in general. When I go to starbucks for example I opt for a simple green or black tea with no sugar or artificial sweetner, That sugar free stuff I can't stand it. I sometimes order their protien shakes with non fat milk but ensure that they don't add any sugar or junk to it. I am just giving you examples of how I manage to minimize sugar and other empty colories and stick to something more wholesome its hard sometimes but this works for me.

I have been using wu yi source for a month now and I love it. I have lost 27 pounds in one month with combination of tea and weight watchers. I used to be hungry all the time and would crave sweets all day now not one craving. I have had no desire for cookies cakes or candy since using the tea. before the tea weight watchers was working very slowly and now I am getting great results. I highly remomend the wu yi tea.

I'm trying out the the Wu-Yi Tea Source and loving it. With such a busy schedule of working full time, going to school, and being a mom, I had to work in drinking two cups a day along with watching what I eat and some light exercising (it sounds impossible, but you can do it). After 3 months, I was able to lose 19 pounds and counting. If you haven't tried it, you should. At first I was unsure of whether this is a scam or not, but it isn't....if you order it from the company. Wish me luck in losing a few more pounds and good luck to you too; should you decide to try it out.

rickdog 7 years ago

All one has to do is google wu-yi to see that it is a scam! I don't think what the Chinese use for dieting, the generic pu-erh, is a scam though. It's a fermented tea from the Yunnan provence, with many many varieties, growers, and dealers. Because it is fermented it has probiotic organisms along with the polyphenols. It's also very collectable because is improves with age, just like wine - in fact it's sold as varietals such as "Golden Mountain - 1996". It's a favorite with the Chinese.

Wu-Yi tea WORKS!! I ordered Wu-Yi Source tea from the internet here; www.teasupermarket.com - £14.95 for TWO 60 teabags boxes. I received a letter with my order 2-month supply. I am into my sixth week and the weight is starting to come off...it's been 4 days so far and I've lost one pound a day! 4 days ago, I actually ate 4 meals which included a McDonalds Quarterpounder at 10:00 pm...I thought I would get on the scale the next morning to see I had gained 3 pounds but I ACTUALLY LOST A POUND !! I got off the scale and got back on, thinking something was wrong with it...but it was real. I was in shock. I am going to keep doing what I'm doing (except the McDonalds part!) and see what happens....

My father got some of the wu-yi tea at an auction and he read the side of the box where it said to consualt you doctor first. and he gave them to me. I drank a cup hot that night, and I slept so sound and when I woke up the next morning I found myself not hurting. I know that the tea is not for this. but I have fibromyalgia and I hurt everymore all day long everyday, for the past 25 years. and when I got up and I didn't hurt I could only say it was they tea that was the only change I had made. it had to be the tea. I am going to keep drinking it and if I keep going pain free then I know it is the tea. I will let you know.

I have been drinking the tea for a week. Purchased it from the health food store! I am pleased ! Honestly, I feel lighter and it does cut the cravings!
