When I started drinking pu’erh tea nearly a month ago, I wasn’t thinking about weight loss. So imagine my surprise that I’ve lost the two annoying pounds I typically pack on in January and lug around until May!
It’s not that I hadn’t read about the alleged health attributes of pu’erh, which include weight loss. It’s that my primary interests were to learn more about a legendary tea that the Chinese and other serious tea aficionados spend thousands of dollars to purchase at auction. A tea from 500- year-old trees tended by hill tribes in southern Yunnan. A tea that is known to provide energy to those who imbibe it.
Now that I’ve experimented with this tea for enough time to evaluate it, it’s a double-thumbs-up and I will continue to drink it. Not just because I’ve lost weight drinking it, though that’s a powerful incentive, but because it absolutely boosts my energy without the jitters I typically experience when I consume caffeine. Oh, and did I mention that it tastes good?
