One of the most commonly asked questions I hear is, "Is there a tea for weight loss?" The short answer is Yes, there is a tea for weight loss. More than one, actually.

BUT… (you knew this was coming, right?)

Tea alone isn’t a silver bullet. A cup of tea a day in combination with double cheeseburgers, soda, and couch-potatoing your life away, isn’t going to give you the fit, healthy body that you’re going for. What will help you achieve your healthy weight goals are consistent healthy habits that you do all the time: eat clean, move your body, eliminate stress, and drink lots of tea.

And here is one of the best teas that have been proven in multiple scientific trials to actually help you lose weight: Oolong tea!

Oolong Tea For Weight Loss

Oolong tea contains compounds called catechins and polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants that can help to increase the body's metabolism and fat oxidation. 

According to scientific research, Oolong tea is a front-runner for fat loss and boosting the metabolism. In a study done with 102 people in 2009, over 70% of those tested lost at least two pounds during the six-week study. Even better, most of them had reduced cholesterol and triglyceride levels. This showed the researchers that Oolong tea has a definite effect on how we metabolize fats. Cool, right?

 

What Is Oolong Tea?

Oolong comes from the same plant as green tea, black tea, and matcha. Oolong tea is partially fermented, which gives it a flavor that is somewhere between black tea and green tea.  The flavor is unique and complex, and can be enjoyed as a hot or cold tea year round.

Along with its benefits for weight loss, oolong tea has also been shown to:

  1. Improve mental alertness and brain function: Oolong tea contains caffeine, which is a natural stimulant that can help to improve mental alertness and focus. It also contains the amino acid L-theanine, which may help to improve brain function and reduce the negative effects of caffeine.

  2. Lower cholesterol: Oolong tea has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels in the blood, which can help to reduce the risk of heart disease.

  3. Help to prevent cancer: Some studies have suggested that oolong tea may have antioxidant properties that may help to protect against certain types of cancer.

  4. Promote skin health: Oolong tea is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to improve skin health and reduce the risk of certain skin conditions.

  5. Reduce stress: Some people find that oolong tea has a calming effect, which may help to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.

 

 

When To Drink Oolong Tea

Drink a cup of Oolong before or with your breakfast, and again before or with your lunch. Bear in mind that if you drink Oolong in the evening, the caffeine might interfere with your sleep. If you’re sensitive to caffeine, make sure to avoid drinking anything with caffeine for twelve hours before your bedtime.

One of the best times to drink your Oolong tea is before you exercise! Using it as a healthy pre-workout alternative might help increase fat loss during your workout.

 

Oolong Tea Types

Although there are many different types of Oolong tea available on the market, here at Loose Leaf we carry Ti Quan Yin, also known as Ti Quan Yin Iron Goddess Slimming Tea, famous for its fragrant and complex flavor, and multiple health benefits, including fat burning and weight reduction.

We also have several Oolong blends, including:

  • Bulletproof Breakfast, a rich blend of Oolong, Puehr, chocolate, and coconut, perfect for fueling your morning, and a bold replacement for coffee
  • Butter Pecan Oolong is a cozy, sweet Oolong blend with rich notes of butter pecan and caramel
  • Coconut Cocoa Oolong smells like a candy bar, but tastes smooth, deep, and dark

 

How To Prepare Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is one of those time-sensitive teas that, if brewed too long, can become unpleasantly bitter. To make an awesome cup of perfectly brewed Oolong

Use the proportion of 1 teaspoon of Oolong tea to 1 cup hot water (a minute after boiling). Let it steep for 2-3 minutes.

Pro tea brewing tip: taste the tea as it brews. Dip a spoon into the tea as it steeps, and remove the leaves once the flavor is released. A small hint of bitterness is actually pleasant, but too much can ruin the flavor.

Hi everyone. You have such a nice website and It’s fun to read about all the different effects tea has on our various ailments… That said, When I make oolong and ginger tea is it proper to steep the oolong while infusing several slices of fresh ginger? I would like to drink it cold w/ ice as I live in the desert. What do the experts suggest?
