Chinese Tea

I read a blog on another site today that discussed chinese tea, claiming that it can help you lose weight. Despite the poor use of English and the clear fact that the writer was just trying to sell a product it is something that I am interested in trying.
I, personally, already drink green tea, and I do feel that this gives me energy and I also love drinking it. White tea is another that I am fond of. It is commonly accepted that the caffeine in tea can boost your metabolism and therefore help, when in a healthy diet, to lose weight. However, whether Ooolong tea (which is the tea that was discussed in the blog that I mentioned) will have a better effect, than green tea for example, or not remains to be seen.
My main issue with drinking tea at all is that I don't want to become addicted to it (through the caffeine). I know from experience that my mother and father can't go a day (or is that hour) without a cup of tea, and I don't want to get to this stage!


  1. Yes, tea addiction can be a kick in the behind

  2. Yea, that's why I try to drink it daily.

  3. Chinese Tea is great, I drink it all the time. 10 cups a day.

  4. I'm hooked on green tea, and I've also heard that it can boost your metabolism. I'm already on the slender side, so no clue whether it works or not... I just like the taste.

  5. im not sure about its weight loss properties but it sure tastes nice!
