Our rare premium slimming Wu-Yi Oolong Tea is from the oolong tea family, which has been studied extensively by the scientific community in labs all over the world. The reason why this type of tea is so fiercely sought after is three-fold.
One: May Reduce fat – Our tea has an incredibly high natural concentration of polymerized polyphenols. These polyphenol compounds have been clinically proven (Suntory Research Center in Osaka, Japan) to activate enzymes that cause triglycerides to dissolve, producing fat-burning effects. They also improve metabolism which facilitates weight loss through natural body processes.
Two: May Fight the Effects of Ageing – Our tea is particularly rich in catechins, theaflavins and thearubigins. For those of us without a medical degree, these are all powerful antioxidants. Natural antioxidants are the best defense against the "free radicals" that accumulate in our body over time with stress, pollution, and by consuming chemical additives found in many foods we eat each day.
Research studies have concluded that free radicals are a major factor in causing the signs of ageing such as dark spots and wrinkling of the skin, as well as other diseases related to ageing such as cancer, Alzheimer's, dementia, arthritis, inflammatory disease and heart/artery disease. In other words, free radicals are not to be taken lightly.
[In one 2004 study by Dr. Kenichi Yanagimoto and colleagues from the University of California, Davis, people who drank oolong daily experienced a remarkable 50 percent reduction in free radicals within just 15 days.]
Three: Very Limited Supply – Since our Authentic Wu-Yi Oolong Tea only comes from the prime growing region of Mt. Wu Yi Shan in China's Fujian Province, there is not enough seasonal supply to meet the growing demand. That is why we went directly to China to purchase our own 800-acre tea estate right on the gentle slope of the west-facing mountain side before demand shot up to what it is today.
