And it's a great way to prepare yourself for the beach, since Oolongs are famous for their reputed weight-loss benefits! (pictured above) Kamiya Papaya Oolong Tea.

In China, tea has historically been used as a medicine for many conditions including ones that cause diabetes. Many studies have been carried out up to the present day about the effects of tea. It has been known for some time that tea helps to control obesity and this is common knowledge in China. A Chinese classical pharmaceutical book called the Bencao Shiyi (The Compendium of Materia Medica) states, "Drinking tea for a long time will make one live long to stay in good shape without becoming too fat and too heavy."

In modern medical science, obesity does not simply mean being overweight. Obesity is defined as an "excess accumulation of fat in the human body," indicating that "the amount of fat within the body has increased beyond its normal range." As shown in the chart, the normal range of fat against weight is 15-20% for a man and 20-25% for a woman. A man will be diagnosed as being obese if he has a fat-to-weight ratio of 25% or more, and for a woman, if she has a ratio of 30% or more.

Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling obesity. Specifically speaking, it activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglyceride. It has been confirmed that the continuous intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and to controlling obesity.

Getting a high quality tea stalk compared to the residue which is found in cheap commercial products is obviously much more beneficial if your purpose is weight loss and health. Tea distributors have taken the core tea "Oolong" and blended it with a variety of attractive and sweet fragrance additions.
