Oolong tea and the weight loss benefits

Have you ever noticed that one of the most striking things about the Chinese and Japanese population is that the majority of them seems to be thin. Statistically, both races are known to be among the healthiest people on the earth with the longest average lifespan. You may wonder, what contributes to that.

Some say its because the Japanese do not have a choice because of the new law implemented in 2008. A maximum waistline size for anyone age 40 and older was set at 85 centimeters (33.5 inches) for men, and 90 centimeters (35.4 inches) for women. This was done as the government was fearful of the rise seen in the growing nations “obesity” rate. All the same, should that be the case, such a small waist line and size needs to be maintained. A major attribute to maintaining such a size is diet.

1. They eat a lot of seafood and veggies.

2. They eat smaller portions.

3. They walk and bike rather than drive or take a taxi.

4. Last but not least- They drink a lot of tea.

You may say ok; English people are also known for drinking a lot of tea, and yet still we have a major problem with obesity. What is to be noted, however, is that the Chinese and Japanese do not just drink any tea, but they drink a specific tea that helps the body to oxidise incarcerated fats.

This tea is known as the legendary Oolong tea. This Oolong tea has a long history and has played a great part in the Asian diet since the early 1800.

The tea is said to have been named by its founder Oolong, and the story goes like this:

During the Qing dynasty, a tea farmer in Fujian was picking tea one day when he saw a deer. He decided to hunt the deer instead of processing the picked tea. It was not until the next day that he got around to finishing picking the tea. By that time, the edges of the leaves had partially oxidised and gave off a surprising good aroma. Deciding to finish the processing as usual, he was surprised to find that the resulting tea had a completely new strong sweet flavour a great difference from the bitterness that was usually produced. This guy’s nickname was Oolong, and so the new tea was named after him.

And that’s the secret. The well known and well used Oolong tea. Research have shown that not only does this tea oxidise incarcerated fat, but it reduces the fattening effects of carbohydrates, helping your body to burn an additional 67 calories every day.

That’s why the Oolong tea is also known as the slimming tea, an Authentic, organic tea for the mind, body and soul. Therefore, for all you health conscious and not to health conscious people, the trick is to replace your normal tea bags with slimming tea bags and watch that waistline slim down.
