The most popular slimming teas are from the green, oolong (wu long) and black families. All three come from the same camellia sinensis bush. Add a few herbs, derived from various seeds, leaves, flowers, roots, etc, to those teas and you have an herbal slimming tea. Depending on the mix, you will end up with a different taste and/or different slimming effects. 450 bushmaster ammo
The trick is to experiment and pick out the one that works for you. Mixing and brewing is not an exact science. What works for you or I might not work as well for another person.
Much Conflicting Advice… Where to Start?
There are numerous claims by various weight loss writers and tea sellers as to the slimming effects of various concoctions. Of course, many of the claims are true…many are not so true. My best advice is to start with either green, oolong or black tea…and go from there. You can find numerous articles on the internet recommending herbs to be added to your basic mix for desired results. Just follow a systematic approach until you discover the most effective blend to meet your needs.
Is Herbal Slimming Tea Expensive?
To maintain quality and keep costs down, go with loose tea. Don’t buy your tea in tea bags. Many companies use the bags to cover up for low quality tea. However, if you are planning to experiment with your own mix, you really have to work with loose tea. Purchasing herbs from specialty shops can be a little expensive, but you will only use a small amount of herbs in the final mix.
Keeping It Simple
Be aware that it can get complicated if you start creating an herbal tea without using real tea from the camellia sinensis bush as a base. It’s also good to remember the Chinese have a long history of growing and brewing these weight loss teas…and achieving the desired results. But, many of the modern-day herbal additions have not really been time-tested. In other words, keep it simple and master the fundamentals before adding too many of the refinements. Go with what works today and then build upon that for the future.
As we know, there are numerous articles and conflicting claims about herbal slimming teas on the internet. It can get confusing. However, once you get into it, it can be enjoyable to do the research required to find what you’re after. Just don’t get discouraged with all the fantastic claims. Keep it simple and you’ll be OK.
