Okay, let me get this straight:

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A MAGIC TEA THAT COULD INSTANTLY BURN, MELT, AND DISSOLVE THE AMOUNT OF FAT IN YOUR BODY.

There. I said it.

If you came here looking for a magic potion to weight loss woes, you’d be sorely disappointed. Honestly, you’d get a much better chance at finding a leprechaun riding a unicorn over a rainbow than obtaining a magical solution to losing weight. Anyone who promises to give you a drink that could burn or melt all your fat away is lying. Tea is not the end-all and be-all of weight loss.

Worried about your caffeine intake, but want a strong morning pick-me-up? Though caffeine helps give you a good boost and increase your mental alertness and sharp thinking, it also has various side effects when consumed in large quantities. It could lead to tremors, increased heartbeat, vomiting, diarrhea, sleeping problems, confusion, dizziness, headache and nervousness.

But if you still want yourself some of that caffeine, ditch the coffee and grab pu-erh tea for your morning pick-me-ups instead. Like coffee, pu-erh has a smooth, strong flavor, but with a relatively less amount of caffeine.

Pu-erh tea, which is typically made from either raw green or ‘cooked’ large leaf tea, is only tea type whose processing and storing involves maturation or aging. Even though most Pu-erh teas are made from green tea, Pu-erh is typically classified as a black tea or in a category all its own due to the color and the fact that it has more oxidation time than most green teas.
