Facts About Wu Long Tea

Aug 17, 2007
You may have never heard of Wu Long tea, at least by that name. Here are some basic facts about this extraordinary tea that you may find fascinating.

Chances are that you know this tea called Wu Long by another name. More commonly in the west and in some parts of Europe, it is referred to as oolong tea. However, this may soon be changing due to some recent research involving oolong tea and weight loss.It appears that oolong teas have been found to have the same capabilities to jump start a sluggish metabolism that are found with green tea. However, oolong tends to produce roughly twice the difference in metabolic rates that green tea does. At the same time, Wu Long has about half the amount of caffeine that one finds in green tea. What this can mean is that persons who may be concerned about taking in too much caffeine while using green tea for weight loss might find oolong to be a nice alternative. The boost to the metabolism can also be attractive to persons who want to lose weight as well, since the tea will help stimulate the production of energy and make it more inviting to exercise in some form.

Interestingly enough, a number of persons who are promoting oolong tea as a weight loss product are tending to fall back on the more ancient variation of the name, marketing a range of extracts and compounds that include Wu Long tea instead of oolong. Regardless of which name is used, the fact of the matter is that the tea is now catching on for its health benefits and not just for the wonderful robust flavor that the tea has been known for in the past.

If you would like to try Wu Long tea as part of your weight loss program, check with local teashops or visit your local health food store. Typically, you should be able to find containers of loose tea, although more outlets are providing oolong in tea bags as well. In the event that you cannot find oolong tea locally, there are a number of excellent teashops online that can have your teas on the way to you the same day that you place the order. Drink the tea for a few weeks even as you continue your exercise program and watch what you eat. You may find that the tea helps you feel more full in between meals as well as helping your body burn energy more efficiently.
