>>Three Things You Must Know about Tea and Weight Loss

A couple of readers recently ask:

- Which green tea should I drink to lose weight?
- Do you sell fat burning oolong tea?

If you have similar questions in mind, here's my long answer. Hope it helps!

1. Green tea does burn fat and energize.
It helps you achieve slow, healthy and permanent weight loss.

This is a topic that I wrote extensively on the website, so I will keep it concise here.

The science of green tea and weight loss is well established. It helps you lose weight in three ways.

First, it raises metabolism and gives you more energy. High quality green tea buds harvested in spring contains two compounds that make this happens in a very special way.

Green tea contains caffeine that increases energy level. But spring harvested green tea buds also contain another compound called theanine, which tastes sweet and promotes calmness.

Overall, you experience a state of mind that can be described as calm and yet alert, with sustainable energy level throughout the day.

Second, green tea reduces fat in your body. It does so in three ways:

- Burn fat
- Block fat conversion
- Block fat absorption

And finally, green tea regulates blood sugar level, reduce food cravings. It also reduces the risks of diabetes.

I can go on and on. So if you want to learn more, the following articles may help:

2. Drink highest quality tea for maximum weight loss,
while minimizing any potential side effects.

Scientific studies have found that the compounds responsible for tea's weight loss are antioxidants and caffeine.

In other words, teas that contain the greatest concentration of antioxidants and caffeine will be most effective for weight loss!

Big industrial brands won't tell you this - but the highest quality teas in the world are the green tea buds harvested in spring.

Harvested in spring over a short window of 3 to 6 weeks, these tender tea buds contain the highest concentration of antioxidants, caffeine and theanine.

For thousands of years, these spring harvested tea buds are the highest grade teas consumed by connoisseurs in China and Japan.

They taste naturally sweet without the need to add any sugar. They don't make you feel agitated, but promote calmness and sustainable high energy throughout the day.

Most importantly, because they are highly potent, you only need to drink a few grams a day. It is economical and reduces the side effects of drinking too much tea.

Now, how about white tea, oolong tea or black tea?

As long as you are drinking quality tea buds, white tea or green tea won't make much difference. This is because white tea is slightly oxidized, and green tea unoxidized, the two have very similar chemical composition.

That is - both white tea and green tea buds have very high concentration of antioxidants, caffeine and theanine.

Oolong tea is semi-oxidized, while red tea is fully oxidized. They have less antioxidants.

My advice is to start with white and green tea first.

3. Dragon Well green tea has rave reviews on its slimming effect.
And don't forget lemon too!

I have been selling teas since 2007, and over the last 4 years, have received many rave reviews of the Dragon Well green tea.

Several customer have reported weight loss since drinking Dragon Well tea. The first story came from Ellen Jones:

By the way, if you are serious about weight loss, you should consider eating more vegetables.

I am a vegetarian for religious reasons, but when I hear Bill Clinton and other celebrities have turned to eating vegans to save their health, something seems to click.

Ellen has recently published a book called Eat Vegan on $4.00 a Day. You can check it out at Amazon:

And also Jude:

And also Michael. Here is an extract from the customer reviews:

Based on my 3 years of Dragonwell tea experience, besides the taste test criteria, I have found that REAL Dragonwell tea allows me to lose weight. Many of my office colleagues have often asked me for the secret of looking so slim.

As I mentioned earlier, only HQ and the MeiJiaWu brand I relied on previously have the real nutrients to increase my metabolism and keep me slim. I shall continue to look forward to HQ's line of Dragonwell tea.

I have to confess I haven't done it before, but drinking green tea with lemon is supposed to increase its health benefits.
