Curious about this much talked-about beverage? Then read on.
What is Ginseng Oolong Tea?
Often known as kings tea, this amazing beverage combines oolong tea (often called wu-long) with a touch of ginseng, a powerful herb grown in the Eastern part of Asia.
Known to help with weight control, boost energy, improve stamina, reduce stress and even ward off diabetes, ginseng has some pretty amazing health benefits all on its own. But when combined with the unique properties of oolong tea, the results are even more staggering.
The two ingredients work together to help you lose weight, feel better and get healthier from the inside out. And what other drink can say it does that?
Weight Loss Benefits
Did you know ginseng oolong tea can actually help you lose weight? Well, it’s true. This powerful ginseng slimming tea actually has the ability to speed up your metabolism.
This happens in a number of ways. First, with the oolong. Oolong has long been known for its waistline-slimming benefits, and scientific studies have proven it boosts your metabolism significantly. In fact, when drinking just two cups of oolong tea, a person’s energy expenditure jumps up by a whopping 10 percent! That means significantly more calories burned and more weight loss over time.
Even green tea, which many have touted for its ability to help with weight loss, can’t touch those numbers. When compared with water, it increased energy expenditure by a mere 4 percent. Not much if you’re trying to lose a lot of weight!
That’s not all oolong is good for though. Something in the oolong also tells your body where to burn the energy from – your fat stores! So rather than just burning off the food you just ate, with oolong tea, your body takes calories from the built up fat throughout your body. Imagine what the means for your weight loss results over a week, month or even a year.
On top of all this, the ginseng packs an extra punch at your waistline by acting as an appetite suppressant. You’ll get fuller quicker, you’ll consume less calories, and you’ll be less tempted by cravings and sweets. Combine this with the calorie burning power of the oolong, and you’ve got one scale-tipping concoction on your hands.

How to Make Ginseng Oolong Tea
Making ginseng oolong tea is a breeze. All you need are the easy-to-use iM Oolong Tea packets, some water and a half-inch by half-inch piece of peeled ginseng root. If you can’t find ginseng root (it’s usually available in most grocery and health food stores), opt for ginseng powder instead.
If you find the root, place the half-inch by half-inch piece in your water as it boils. This will allow the herb to permeate the water and flavor it. Once the water is boiling, pour it into a cup and dunk in an oolong teabag. Steep for 3 to 6 minutes, and enjoy.
If you chose the powdered route, instead add a half teaspoon of ginseng powder to your tea once it’s been steeped. Just take out the teabag, stir in your powder with a spoon, and drink up. If you’re not a fan of the flavor, you can always liven it up with a little honey or lemon juice. Almond milk can cool it down, too, if it’s too hot to drink.
