It is very hard for me to lose weight ,but thanks to Wu Yi Tea it is now possible for me to lose the pounds that I have gained thru the years."  Angie T

"Just a note to let you know how very pleased we are with your product. Since using your product for approximately 5 MONTHS my husband has lost 50 pounds, has lowered his blood sugar and lowered his blood pressure.  He has been type II diabetic and on medication for approximately ten (10) years. His blood sugar became so low that the doctor had to take away some of his medication. I have lived with him for 35 years and he has fought high blood pressure.

Every morning his blood pressure is in the normal range and believe it or not sometimes on the low side. I just want to let you know that what you say this tea will do, it DOES! He is anxiously awaiting his next months supply and hopes he does not run out before it arrives". Pam N.

What Is Wu Yi Tea?
Wu Yi Tea, Da Hong Pao, the king of the 4 famous types of tea, some fetching millions of dollars, is grown high in the Wu Yi Mountains Of Fujian China. Carefully grown, hand picked, naturally fermented in the sun, and hand packaged, Wu Yi Tea burns fat faster than green tea, and increases your metabolism resulting in natural, safe, weight loss.

Dà Hóng Pao is a very important Wuyi Oolong tea. Legend has it that the mother of a Tang Dynasty emperor was cured of an illness by a certain tea, and that emperor sent great red robes to clothe the four bushes from which that tea originated. These original bushes, growing on a rock on Mount Wuyi, still survive today and are highly venerated. Less than one kilogram of tea is harvested from these plants each year. This original and real Da Hong Pao can fetch millions of dollars per kilogram. Cuttings taken from the original plants have been used to produce similar grades of tea from genetically identical plants. Taste variations produced by processing, differences in the soil, and location of these later generation plants is used to grade the quality of various Da Hong Pao teas.

Xiao Hong Pao, or Small Red Robe refers to Da Hong Pao grown from third or more generation plants but the term is rarely used.
As it's of very high quality, the Da Hong Pao is usually reserved for honorable guests.

Wu Yi Tea Antioxidants (EGCG) helps to detoxify the body, assists in burning fat at a rapid rate, reducing the effects of cholesterol in the body, resulting in weight loss.

Many have lauded the weight loss properties of Wu Yi tea on her show several times, as has Rachael Ray. Oprah drinks Wu Yi Tea 3 or 4 times a day, for weight loss and weight maintenance, in conjunction with proper dieting and exercise. Many academic centers in China have done extensive research on the weight loss properties of Wu Yi Tea, and on the other powerful medicinal benefits of Wu Yi Tea.

Tie Guan Yin (literally meaning iron guanyin) is a premium variety of Chinese oolong tea associated with Anxi in the Fujian province. Named after the bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (best known as Guan Yin), it has also been translated as "Iron Goddess of Mercy" after the old translation for Guan Yin's name. Tie Guan Yin produced from different areas of AnXi have different characteristics.

Other spellings and names include Ti Kuan Yin, Tit Kwun Yum, Ti Kwan Yin, Tie Guan Yin, Iron Buddha, Iron Goddess of Mercy, and Tea of the Iron Bodhisattva, which is probably the closest English translation.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Official Wu Yi Tea
More About Wu Yi Tea

I'm sure you've heard of Wu Yi tea - it's been around for centuries and it DOES have some weight loss properties.

Wu Yi tea is also known as "Wu Long Tea." The different spellings result from the various ways the Chinese language can be written using the English (or more properly the "Roman") alphabet. The Chinese pronunciation of this tea sounds like "oo long."

Wu Yi tea was first produced in the 15th century in China's Fujian province. It is a semi-oxidized tea, meaning that the tea leaves are allowed to partially oxidize after they are picked. Black tea is a fully oxidized tea and green tea is un-oxidized, so Wu Yi tea has characteristics of both green and black tea.

In the 18th century people from Fujian province crossed the Taiwan Straight to settle on the island of Taiwan and brought with them their techniques for producing Wu Yi tea. Taiwan proved to have ideal conditions for growing tea and now some of the finest Wu Yi tea in the world comes from Taiwan.

Wu Yi Tea and Dieting

Wu Yi tea has recently come into the spotlight as a weight loss drink. Some unscrupulous vendors have pounced on this publicity and promoted Wu Yi tea as a "magic diet aid" that will shed extra pounds effortlessly.

As always, the truth is a little less dramatic. Scientific studies have shown that drinking Wu Yi tea can raise the metabolism, and this in turn can burn extra calories.

The metabolic increase is due to "polymerized polyphenols" which are more abundant in Wu Yi tea than other types of tea. Wu Yi tea can also suppress lipid metabolism which has the effect of suppressing fatty accumulation and body weight increases. Another Japanese study concludes that long-term consumption of Wu Yi tea is beneficial for the suppression of diet induced obesity.

Asian Diet

Wu Yi tea is popular in many Asian countries, and some have made a link between the slim Asian physique and Wu Yi tea consumption. While Wu Yi tea undoubtedly plays a part in keeping Asians slim, a bigger part by far is the traditional Asian diet. The typical Asian diet is plant-based as opposed to the meat-protein diet of Western countries.

Asians typically have fewer chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. Asians also have longer life spans than Westerners. Diet certainly plays an important role in these differences.

Anyone who is seriously interested in losing weight and maintaining long term health is advised to take a take a close look at what keeps Asians slim and healthy. Wu Yi tea is part of that diet, but it also includes an abundance of plant foods, low fat consumption, low dairy food consumption, a moderate amount of fish and a small amount of poultry and eggs.

The traditional Asian diet is very low in red meat. As Western influences spread through Asia and more red meat is consumed there is a corresponding increase in "Western" disease such as coronary heart disease and some cancers.

Include Wu Yi Tea in Your Diet

Anyone wanting to lose weight will benefit from daily consumption of Wu Yi tea, but there is much more to it than that. Permanent weight loss can only be accomplished by permanent lifestyle changes. This means eating healthy foods and getting plenty of exercise. Wu Yi tea (which, by the way, is a delicious drink) can play an important part in that healthy lifestyle.

Wu Yi Tea and Weight Loss   (Back To The Top)

There is so much interest in weight loss and Wu Yi Oolong tea that we are going to look at research supporting the connection.

Let's start at the beginning

All tea comes from one plant Camellia Sinensis if it doesn't come from that plant it is not tea (herbs come from a variety of plants). Over time, the plant has protected itself from photosynthetic stressors by forming chemical compounds known as polyphenols. Polyphenols, which include flavonoids, have the same beneficial class of compounds, antioxidants, that make fruits and vegetables good for you.

The difference in green tea and Wu Yi Oolong tea is processing. All tea is green when picked. Green tea is heated in order to halt the natural enzymatic reaction (oxidation) of the leaf. Once dried, green tea leaves are then rolled intentionally breaking the cell structure. Wu Yi Oolong tea leaves are plucked, kept under carefully controlled conditions and allowed to oxidize. These leaves are not intentionally broken, leaving most of the cell structure intact. These processing differences make each category of tea beneficially different even though they come from the same plant.

The Weight Loss Connection

The two main ways to reduce food related body weight are; increase energy expenditure (EE) and inhibit the absorption of nutrients, including fat and carbohydrates. Caffeine is a stimulant so it is widely accepted that the caffeine in tea increases metabolism, hence increasing EE. So the question becomes, is it only the caffeine or are other compounds in the tea contributing to that increase?

The Research

The Chinese have long believed that Wu Yi Oolong tea is beneficial in reducing and maintaining weight. A Chinese study, in 1998, of 102 females showed that continuous consumption of Wu Yi Oolong tea for six weeks resulted in a reduction of body weight. This study, along with the question of other compounds contributing to tea's weight loss benefits, spurred further research.

In 2001, Physiologist Dr. William Rumpler, of the US Agriculture Research Services' Diet and Human Laboratory, investigated the ancient Chinese belief that Wu Yi Oolong tea is effective in controlling body weight. The study measured how tea influences energy expenditure (EE) and included 12 male volunteers who were given 4 separate beverage formulas over three consecutive days. The beverage formulas consisted of; 1) full strength Wu Yi Oolong tea, 2) caffeinated water with caffeine equal to full strength Wu Yi Oolong tea, 3) half strength Wu Yi Oolong tea and 4) non caffeinated water.

The participants 24 hour EE was measured and resulted in;

- EE levels of about 3% higher when they drank either the full strength Wu Yi Oolong tea or the caffeinated water versus the non caffeinated water.

- Participants burned an average of 67 more calories per day when drinking the full strength Wu Yi Oolong tea.

- Participants increased fat oxidation (fat burning) by a whooping 12% after consuming the full strength Wu Yi Oolong tea versus the caffeinated water.

- This data confirms that a component other than caffeine is responsible for promoting the preferential use of fat as an energy source.

The increase in fat oxidation in this study is amazing! Drinking Wu Yi Oolong tea can actually tell your body to burn fat for energy! Scientists then speculated that caffeine combined with EGCGs worked together to increase fat oxidation.

A Japanese study, conducted in 2003, went one step further comparing the benefits of Wu Yi Oolong tea and green tea on weight reduction. Eleven healthy young female students participated in this well controlled study. Participants received three different beverage formulas; 1) Wu Yi Oolong tea, 2) powdered green tea leaves and 3) water.

Both teas were prepared with boiling water. The Wu Yi Oolong tea steeped for five minutes and the powdered green tea leaves were dissolved.

After measurements were taken, the results determined;

- Wu Yi Oolong tea had higher EE levels from beginning to end and at intervals of 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes.

- EE levels peaked at 90 minutes for both Wu Yi Oolong and green tea and remained at their respective levels until 120 minutes.

- These results indicate that after consuming Wu Yi Oolong tea you will expend more energy then if you were to drink green tea or water and that it can last up to two hours.

The concentrations of caffeine, individual catechins and other polyphenols were also measured producing these interesting findings;

- The caffeine and EGCG content was much higher in the green tea versus the Wu Yi Oolong tea.

- The concentration of polymerized polyphenols was significantly higher in the Wu Yi Oolong tea versus the green tea.

These findings show that it's the polymerized polyphenols, highest in Wu Yi Oolong tea, that link tea to burning fat, not just the caffeine or just the combination of caffeine and EGCGs. Furthermore, the rest of the compounds compared in the teas were similar or equal to one another with no marked differences, reinforcing the results.

We have shown that Wu Yi Oolong tea significantly increases EE for up to as much as 120 minutes and can even promote preferential use of fat as an energy source making it a healthy tool for reducing and maintaining weight. So what about absorption of nutrients?

Wu Yi Oolong tea's effect on blocking the absorption of fats and carbohydrates is thought to play a key role in its weight reducing benefits. While more studies need to be done, initial studies indicate that Wu Yi Oolong tea has absorption blocking potential.

There are proven methods for losing weight and keeping it off; exercise, getting enough sleep and eating a balanced diet. Wu Yi Oolong tea can enhance these positive changes and garner faster results.
