From Wu-Yi Source

Harvested in the Wuyi Mountains of the Fujian Province. Masterfully prepared using the old world “orthodox” method. Only the top two leaves and leaf bud are picked – by hand.

Then processed with caring attention to time honored techniques, producing the perfect blend of fruitful flavor and robust undertone.

Are you curious about wu-yi tea and how it can help you lose weight? Many people are hearing the buzz about wu-yi tea, yet are unsure of what it actually is.

Wu-yi tea leaves are harvested on Mt. Wuyi Shan in China.

This tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine since it was discovered. You are probably wondering how drinking tea can actually help you shed those unwanted pounds. There is an ingredient in Wuyi tea called polyphenol.

It is a bio-active ingredient that stimulates the breakdown of fat by activating triglycerides in your body. Triglycerides are enzymes that dissolve fat, and this process helps increase your resting metabolic rate.

Wu Yi tea has the highest concentration of polyphenol and when drank regularly it can increase the function of fat metabolism. There have been many individual case studies that have shown really great weight loss results when combining diet, exercise, and drinking wu-yi tea. It has been clinically proven that there are many other health benefits associated with drinking it regularly. Studies have shown that wu-yi tea can greatly reduce the risk of heart attack and help prevent cancer. It has also been documented that this tea can strengthen bones and prevents plaque and tooth decay.

Wu-yi tea has been used as a traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and is reported to rid the body of many harmful toxins and possibly slow the aging process. The tea also contains anti-oxidants. Another study found that theanine, contained in wu-yi tea, boosts immune system responses when fighting infection. You may experience a better level of focus and alertness when drinking the tea, as it is a safe and natural stimulant.

A review of Authentic Wu-Yi Tea (Premium Blend) by Wu-Yi Source

Ingredients:
Oolong Tea, Natural Apple Flavor

Brewing Instructions:
To savor the full flavor and produce the best results from our tea, bring fresh water to a rolling boil. Pour hot water directly over the tea bag in a standard size mug. Brew 3-5 minutes or to desired taste. One bag makes 8 ounces of hot Wu-Yi tea.
For Iced Tea:
Brew tea, chill, then pour over ice and serve with fresh sliced lemon

Contains approximately 30mg of caffeine per 8-oz (250mL) cup.

I brewed this tea for a few minutes and left to steep. Tea color is a light amber. I have decided to add a small slice of lime to it since tea odor is most faint. The lemon does seem to liven the tea for a citrus aroma and mingling nicely throughout.

I do like this tea; it is mild in body and flavor. Not at all astringent, but I cannot seem to discern the apple flavor to be found in tea, prior to adding the lemon that is.

I had purchased this tea last year and it was close to its expiration date, so perhaps that is why I cannot discern the apple flavoring since it must have evaporated somehow. Tea does not taste stale or flat; it is just plain Oolong tea, the kind one drinks after dinner at a restaurant serving Chinese/Cantonese/Taiwan cuisine. Tea washes down nicely after a full meal.

What a good idea for an oolong flavouring. I think you’re right in your theory about why you couldn’t initially find any apple flavour in it, though. Do you think, if the apple flavour had been more prominent, you would have liked it better?

My sister-in-law gave me a box of this tea today while I was at her house. She warned me that it is kind of weak, so I brewed it with a little less water in an attempt to make it a little stronger. It still came out kind of weak & there was a bitterness to it as well. I ended up sweetening it quite a bit. It wasn’t BAD and I will keep it as a back up for if I ever find myself out of my other teas.

Hi danamorton7777! I have 3 60ct boxes of the black box Wu-Yi Source Tea. They are still sealed, but are out of date. I bought 4 boxes in 2011 and found the caffeine to stimulating for me (I’ve been caffeine-free for 5 years.) I would love to sell these 3 boxes and know that someone was enjoying the tea. I checked a few sites and found that this tea sells for $16.50-$35.00 a box. I would be happy to pass it along to you for $10 a box plus any shipping.

I found this tea for a dollar a box at a discount store. My regret is that I did not buy more! It has a nice buttery deliciousness that I’ve found in the greener Oolongs I’ve tried.

I got a giant box of this tea for Christmas. It’s in bag form, not full leaf, so it’s good for at the office. (I drink most of my tea at my desk!)

This oolong is light, but substantial enough for several steepings. It has a pleasant floral aftertaste and is never bitter. I always look forward to drinking a few cups of this oolong.
