What is Oolong Tea?

Although Oolong tea (also referred to as “Wu Yi tea” or “Wu Long tea”) is widely consumed in the Far East, it still has a mysterious aura to it here in America.

This air of mystery is encouraged (and capitalized on) by marketing companies who constantly change the tea’s name to make it seem more like an ancient Chinese secret for weight loss. The simple truth is that the tea isn’t much of a secret, and (since it originated about 400 years ago) it’s not particularly ancient either.
Oolong, Wu Long, & Wu Yi Tea…What’s the Difference?

Oolong tea has several different names. It’s often referred to as “WuLong” or “Wu Long” tea, and, fairly recently, “Wu Yi” tea. However, even though they have different names, every one of these teas are harvested, prepared, and rolled the Oolong way.

Originally, the different names were the result of an honest translation error. This happened because there are several different methods of translating Chinese to English. Using one of the methods the pronunciation of the first character is “Oo”, but with the other method the first sound is “Wu”. Therefore the name of the tea is either “Oolong” or “WuLong” depending on the method of translation.

Does Oolong tea really help aid in weight loss?

Yes! Combined with diet and exercise, Oolong tea can be an excellent weight loss aid. It increases the metabolism while blocking fat absorption to help you shed those extra pounds.
