The Reading Guide

The Healthy Beverage Can Do a Great Favor to Help Weight Loss Easily

Pu-erh tea is a kind of healthy beverage, which not only has a long history of Chinese Tea, but can help us reduce fat and lose weight. The cooked ripe puerh tea can keep the stomach fit and warm it, while the fresh raw puerh tea has a better effect on weight loss than the cooked tea, on account of its strong taste.

As for the ripened pu-erh tea, pile fermentation must be mentioned. It was successfully experimented by Yunnan tea factory in 1973 and made a great contribution to the reputation of pu’er tea. The core technique cannot be exposed in public, which has been a hot topic discussed in part time.

Simply speaking, pile fermentation is the process of chemical reaction between beneficial bacteria and sunlight-dried primary tea by fermenting. It can make the fresh-cut sunlight-dried primary tea become soft and have a mild taste. It also can make pu’er tea have a mellow and rich taste. In the mysterious process of pile fermentation, what happens on earth?

Data when Pu-erh tea is Processing

From the microcosmic perspective, there are such main microorganisms in the mysterious process of pu’er tea’s pile fermentation: Aspergillus niger, Penicillium, Rhizopus, Aspergillus gloucus, Saccharomyces, and Bacterium.

Since Rhizopus’s amylase activity is relatively high, it can produce organic acid and fragrant Ester. The propagation of Rhizopus relates to the softening of tea leaves in pile fermentation. It also can help pu’er tea be sticky and smooth, rich and mellow.

In the process of pu’er tea pile fermentation, the antagonism among microorganisms results in the fact that there are a few bacteria and no disease-causing germs. The mass propagation of Saccharomyces and Mycetes can limit the growth of germs. Meanwhile, the domestic and foreign researches indicate that Tea Polyphenol can limit the propagation and growth of such germs that are pestilent to human beings and animals.

Proper Drinking Time of Pu-Erh is the Utmost Importance to Help Lose Weight

Pu-erh tea has been touted for many years as a great weight loss tea because of its ability to help us burn fat and shed pounds, as well as having a deliciously mellow and deeply earthy flavor.

However if you drink Pu-erh half an hour or so before you eat a meal it will cause the opposite effect and can cause you to gain weight instead because when you drink Pu-erh tea before a mean it clears up the fat deposits in your body and any residue in the stomach so that it actually increases your appetite, causing you to eat more.

Does Pu-erh tea seem to make you feel hungry?

Some people wonder why drinking Pu-erh tea seems to make you feel hungry at times. This is because the digestion time for different foods vary greatly inside your body. Carbohydrates are the most easily digested and are using digested by the stomach within an hour after eating your meal. Proteins take slightly longer than carbohydrates to be digested, taking up to two hours for full digestion and finally fat is the slowest to be digested by your body after a meal. In fact your body can take up to three or four hours after you’ve eaten a meal to completely digest the fat from that meal.

Pu-erh tea helps you to lose weight by helping to increase the speed of digestion. Pu-erh tea will accelerate the movement of fat from the stomach to the colon without giving the fat time to be absorbed by the body. Pu-erh can also help you to lose weight in many other ways besides increasing the speed of digestion. If drinking Pu-erh tea causes you to feel hungry, then you are burning fat in your body at that time, which is one of the physical effects of drinking tea. If this happens, have your three proper meals, however control your appetite as best as you can, and try not to eat fatty foods as Pu-erh tea can only remove so much residue and fat in your stomach and digestive organs.

Remember that the proper proportion of tea to water is generally 1 gram of tea per 50 milliliters of water.? In the above example we chose to use 2 grams of Pu-erh tea, so the water was approximately 100 milliliters.? Since Pu-erh tea only steeps for a very short period of time, you only need to steep the first cup for about 15 to 20 seconds. Each time you re-brew the leaves, simply add another 15-20 seconds of brewing time for each additional brewing of the leaves.

2. As well as the above suggestions, if you are trying to lose weight using Pu-erh tea, you should also make yourself a cup of Pu-erh tea in the middle of the night and drink it without eating anything for breakfast the next morning. This method can greatly accelerate weight loss.

3. If you are at a party or social affair and wish to keep an eye on your weight, you may drink Pu-erh tea during your meal.

Start Your Tour of Pu-erh

Effects of losing weight by drinking teas performs slowly. Your favorite flavor is also lowly formed by thousands of tastes of different teas. That’s how we said quantity breeds quality. If you are fresh of Pu-erh tea, you should know well about it before your first brew, like Pu-erh can be divided into Raw Pu-erh and Ripe Pu-erh. These two kinds present varying flavor and color because of the mysterious craft of “Wodui” (pile-fermentation). The article Understanding the Difference between Raw Pu-erh Tea and Ripe Pu-erh Tea will help you to know Pu-erh based on the learning of the difference between Raw Pu-erh and Ripe Pu-erh.

Taste of Flavor

Most people indicated of being unused to the special flavor of Pu-erh. For the first try of Pu-erh, it will taste very different from Green tea and Oolong tea. The flavor is formed during the process of Wodui (pile-fermentation). Here TeaVivre will explain to you what Wodui is and how it works. Wodui, the pile-fermentation, refers to ferment tea leaves by piling them up. To cover a fabric on the pile, pour water on it and heat up the temperature will speed up its process of fermentation. Microbes which produced during the fermentation will cause chemical reaction, and then bring the special earthy and fishy taste into finished teas. If it’s your first attempt of Pu-erh, the taste may confuse you – it is not so easily acceptable. Actually it is the normal flavor of Pu-erh. We suggest you to start with mini Tuo cha or loose Pu-erh, then gradually adapt to the flavor.

Tips: mini tuo cha needs rinsing twice. Use a small amount of water that just cover over the teas for rinsing. The video below will show you how to brew Pu-erh tea.

View of Appearance

Pu-erh has the most varied shape in the six major species of teas, including mini Tuo cha, cakes, bricks, and gourd-shape. We know that the methods of storage will influent teas’ aroma and flavor. That’s why Pu-erh is made into different shapes – for better storage. It could be imagined that if Pu-erh is exposed to the air or not well-kept, how weakened it will be of its weight-losing effects or its flavor. For example, cakes after pressing, airs in it will be removed, and spaces between tea leaves will be smaller. Therefore the procedure of oxidation will slow down. More kinds of Pu-erh could be tried if you want to know more about it.

Pry Pu-erh Cake Tea

Tips: Tea Pin or Knife will be needed for breaking a tea cake or brick. They should be dug bit by bit into big pieces so that the leaves will be in full shape and looks more beautiful when brewed. We’d like to show you a video about How to Properly Loosen and Pry Pu-erh Tea.

Admire of Liquor

There are four methods of diagnosis in traditional Chinese medicine: to look, to listen, to question, to feel. So are the teas. When we drink teas, there are four steps we could follow: to look, to smell, to sip, to taste. Take Green tea as example, which is also helpful green tea for weight loss:
To look the color: green and bright
To smell the aroma: fresh and high aroma
To sip the liquor: soft and smooth
To taste the tea: sweet after-taste and long fragrance

More or less, every kind of tea has sweet after-taste. Life is like a cup of tea: after suffering comes happiness. I think this should be the best words for describing tea. Let’s go back to Pu-erh. Raw Pu-erh, not pile-fermented, has strong and heavy flavor even for first sip, which is contrast to Ripe Pu-erh. What’s more, the sweet after-taste of Raw Pu-erh is also heavy.

Good production comes from good origins. If you want good Pu-erh tea, you should pay attention to its year and origin place. Fengqing and Mengku in Yunnan are famous Pu-erh producing regions. Local residents are well acquainted with Raw Pu-erh and Ripe Pu-erh, and know how to choose good Pu-erh. We have looked up many documents and summarized five key points which determine Pu-erh tea’s quality: origin place, years of tea trees, picking time, level and storage method. These information could be checked here: What are Essentials for Puerh Tea Quality.

  • Thank you so much for all the information on this amazing tea.

    My question is about how to store the tea leaves between uses. I usually brew the then and then just leave the wet leaves in the strainer for the whole day. But what should you do exactly? Also, is it ok to drink the same leaves through the whole 12 hours of the day? And have the wet leaves sit on the strainer in the open the whole time?

    Also, why is it hard to find organic puerh tea? What happens in the process so that it will not be organic? Are the pesticides/chemicals used dangerous for the body especially after drinking the tea for years and years?

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Nedeli, thanks for your question.

      1. Usually, the tea leaves which are not finishing brewing can leave on the strainer for next steep. And it is ok to same leaves in a day. But the longer we brew the tea, the polyphenols and other substances will come out more.
      2. Besides, it’s better to close the lid of the strainer. And as for the tender tea leaves, such as green tea or white tea, you can close the lid after the inside temperature in the teapot cooling down, in order to keep the leaves fresh.
      3. The tea which meet the standards of organic will go through more strict test, so the content harmful substances is small, and will not cause harm to our body. The original tea bush of Pu-erh tea usually grows in high altitude mountains, and the living environment there is ecological and natural for there is not too much artificial intervention. Therefore, we usually don’t need to concern too much about whether the materials reach the organic standards.

      Teavivre has found two types of organic Pu’erh for our customers who pursuit for the real organic healthy, and maybe you could try them!

      Hope it helps, and if you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Jean,
      Thank you for your question.
      When we say pu erh tea can help you lose weight, it is very long process. And in the process, people should keep diet and pay attention to the daily meal. Instead of thinking that Tea can help, and then eat a lot. If this way, then nothing can help.
      You mentioned that you are doing low carb, high protein method. This seems to be a way of losing weight. Hope this works well to you.
      If you back to normal meal, puerh tea may help you lose weight. However, everyone has different reaction to tea.
      I’m not sure if drink tea can still help while you are doing low carb, high protein. If the low carb works, and maybe drink tea is not necessary.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • Hi I need pureh tea for weight loss but I’m not sure which ones to get as they are so many different types of this tea. I no you said ripened and unripened would suit for weight loss but can you tell me which ones
    Thanks

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Bridgee,
      Thank you for your question.
      Because the same processing steps, the benefits of ripened pu erh teas are the same although there are different ripened pu erh teas. So does the raw puerh tea.
      However, different tea maker, tea tree species and storage years, the taste and aroma of teas are different. So if you are not sure which tea to choose, you’d better try some samples first.

  • Few more questions, if it is not a problem 🙂

    Please advice me, there are so many info in the Internet or even on the tea bags: Shall I brew pu ehr with boiling water? Or little bit colder (95 C)?

    Next case. I usually drink a 1,5 – 2 litres of pu ehr every day. Of course I do it after meals (2 or 3 cups of tea and 40 to 60 minutes after eating). Is the ammount of pu ehr ok?

    Once again best regards from frosty Poland 🙂

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Mike,
      Usually we brew a pu erh tea with boiling water.
      And it’s ok if drink that amount of tea does not cause any problem to you.
      You know, everyone has different reaction to tea. So the amount good to drink is also vary.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • Dear Sir or Madam,
    Is it correct to drink a cold pu erh? Or it shall be rather warm?
    Best regards.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Mike,
      Thank you for your question.
      You can drink pu erh tea either cold or warm. However, if you are suffering from bad stomach, you’d better drink it warm.

  • Were do I buy this tea in south africa

    • TeaVivre

      Hi rochelle,

      Thank you for your question.
      For now, Teavivre is a China based online shop. We don’t have stores.
      Maybe you can find a local tea store, and see if they have these teas.
      Or you can purchase on our site.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • Can you advise as to which Pu erh Tea you recommend for weight loss and to eliminate stored fat. I am currently engaged in exercise and a “lifestyle change” ( 🙂 do not like the word diet) but I am limited to certain exercises due to a condition called diastasis (separation of abdominal muscles). Also, if an order is placed, how long does it take to get to U.S.? Thank you in advance.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Diane,
      Pu Erh tea can help us burn fat and shed pounds. There are two kinds puerh, ripened and raw.
      Ripened puerh has earthy smell, mellow and thick, and raw puerh is bitter, but generally has a sweet aftertaste. And raw puerh didn’t have ferment process, it may stimulate your stomach, so if your stomach is not strong enough, I’d like to suggest you try ripened puerh.
      There are samples on our site, maybe you try some samples and find your favorite.
      Besides drinking tea, you still need to pay attention to your daily meal, and some do exercise as you can.
      And we have 2 ways to ship to US, they are China Pot Air Mail and USPS.
      China Post Air Mail takes 22-30 day, while USPS takes 6-10 days. Please click this link to get more information.

  • Dear sir,
    Can pu erh tea is good for fatty liver and high blood pressure. What tea is better to cure the fatty liver . Please advise.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi zubaidah,

      Thank you for your question.
      Yes, Pu Erh is good for high blood pressure. But constitution of people are varied, and you mentioned the fatty liver and high blood pressure, you’d better ask professional advise from your doctor., that would be better.

  • Sir, I have a doubt on pur eh brewing. I usually boil the tea leaf on gas stove. I use glass kettle to boil the tea. By boiling it each time (around 6 times)do it loose its quality and the nutrition? Is it good to boil the tea or not. Please advise.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi zubaidah,
      Thank you for your question.
      Yes, you can boil the tea on gas stove. However the high temperature will release the nutritional quickly, and the taste will be gone soon.
      And usually we just brew the tea with boiling water. And then we can drink it for many time, until there is no taste.
      And i’d like to suggest you try to brew it with boiling water, and then boil it on the stove when the taste is not strong enough for you.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Zubaidah,
      Thank you for your question.
      If you brew a puerh tea cake with 250ml water, you can use about 5 grams tea. And since every one has different preference, you can adjust the tea accordingly, and find the best taste you like.
      And puerh tea can be brewed many times. You can brew and drink it until there is no tea taste at all.
      Hope this is helpful to your concern.

  • How many cups can be made from buying one of raw cake tea 2006 : 100gr?

    • TeaVivre

      Dear Joanna-sunet,

      Thank you very much for writing to us.
      Usually we take 10 grams tea to brew a cup of tea, so it can steep 10 times. But 10 grams can be brewed for about 5-8 cups. Hope this is helpful for you.

      Furthermore, if your cup is small, you can also use less teas.

  • i am 21 year old gal and i wanna loose weight.i suffer from increased heart rate problem so drinking pu-erh tea is ok or not??does it contains caffeine?

    • TeaVivre

      Dear Hemakshi,
      Thank you very much for writing to us.
      The tea contains caffeine. Pu-erh tea can be divided into raw pu-erh tea and ripened pu-erh tea. If your stomach is good, you can drink both. But if not, you can drink ripened pu-erh tea. Furthermore, when your stomach is empty, you should not drink any tea. Also when you have medicines, you should not drink tea. More information, you should ask your doctor. Hope this is helpful for you. Wish you will be healthy and happy.

  • Please give me your advice 🙂
    How if I drink pu erh tea in the morning before school then I’ll eat nothing except drinking water until 12 am for my lunch without rice, just vegetable and meat then i’ll eat nothing again until afternoon come I’ll eat the same thing like my lunch and i have some workout and treadmill for 30 mnt. Is it okay for losing weight ?

    • TeaVivre

      Dear Tammy,

      Thank you very much for writing to us.
      You’d better do not drink any teas with empty stomach. Drinking Pu-erh tea at the correct times will help you shed unwanted pounds by helping your body to metabolize fat. If you drink Pu-erh at the wrong times, it is said that it will actually cause you to gain weight instead. The best time to drink a cup of Pu-erh tea for weight loss goals is one hour after a meal, so that the Pu-erh tea can remove excess grease and help your body eliminate unwanted and leftover, hard-to-digest fats.
      Hope this is helpful for you.

      Dear Aruna,

      Thank you very much for writing to us.
      Actually, Pu-erh tea is divided into raw pu-erh tea and ripened pu-erh tea. If your stomach is good, you can drink both of teas. But if not, you can only drink ripened pu-erh teas. But you said you did under go gall bladder surgery. So you can not drink teas. More information, you can ask your doctor.
      Wish you will be recovery soon and happy every day.

  • Hi is it safe to drink puerh tea while pregnant and how much should I drink

    • TeaVivre

      My Dear Sam,
      No, please do not drink tea while pregnant.

  • I have a question; your article states,
    “Ideally, to lose the most weight using Pu-erh tea, you should drink Pu-erh tea without adding any other Chinese tea or drinks to your diet besides Pu-erh tea. If you do this the weight loss effects will be the most noticeable.”
    Can you explain why? Black tea has the best AM kickoff, oolong & green tea both tout thermo-genic assistance & even white teas claim health benefits. Why would drinking them, at different times of the day, hinder weight loss from Pu-erh?

    Please advise!!!

    Thanks!

    • TeaVivre

      Dear Dave,

      Thank you very much for writing to us.
      First, you should not drink many kinds of teas in one day, for it is harmful to your stomach. Second, all teas have health benifits. The process of making these teas is totally different, so they have different health benifits.

  • hi dear, my name is lilian , i’m writing you from italy, i just ordered for the raw pu-erh tea, my question is , is it necessary or compulsory for me to use the tea pot or the cinese kittle called bamboo joint teapot or rong tian yixing zisha teapots to prepare pu-erh tea just as it was indicated on the video i just watched? 2 ) can i boil the water through microwave ? 3) our weather here in italy is getting warm soon , can i drink pu-reh tea little bit warm or cool, not hot like during the wintertime?. pls reply i really want to loss weight. thanks a lot

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Lilian, thank you very much for purchasing with us. For your questions of the pu-erh tea:

      1) Yes it is recommended to use Yixing clay teapot for brewing, as the yixing clay can bring out the pu-erh tea’s flavor and taste much more than other kinds of teapot. But if you don’t have Yixing teapot, you can use procelain gaiwan.

      2) According to our expeience, microwave-boiled water is not suitable for brewing teas. As we have tasted before, the tea brewed with that water lost some flavor slightly.

      3) Yes you can drink the pu-erh tea with warm water. But it is suggested not to drink it too cold unless you have a very strong stomach, because cold tea liquid may be stimulating for stomach.

  • I’m new to green tea, after reading these articles is this tea as good as Wu-long tea? With everything I’ve read I am totally confused.

    • TeaVivre

      Yes, green tea is as good as Wu-long tea.
      The tea water of green tea is yellow green color which abounds in Vitamins, while Wu-long tea is semi-fermented tea and is somewhere between green and black tea, whose color is amber.
      Both of which can keep up our spirits. However, each of them has its own special good benefits. The former can reduce blood fat and avoid hardening of the arteries and has much other medicinal value. The notable feature of Wu-long tea is that it can help you to eliminate fatigue, boost your immunity and loss weight and are good for your digestion and breaking down the fats.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Selena, these two pu-erh teas can both be permanently preserved. They need to be stored in dry, ariy and cool place.
      For your second question of breaking the cake, you can do in the way that is more convenient for you. Yet normally, if you break the cake at once, the leaves may be oxidized in a quicker speed. But if you keep the leaves properly, the oxidization is avoidable.

      If you are new to pu-erh teas, it may cause sleeplessness. But you may not worry about it. You can adjust the drinking time to avoid this happening. When you just start to drink tea, you can just drink it in the morning. This can help you keep refreshing in the day. Do not drink it after evening meal since it . When your body gradually get used to pu-erh teas, which often takes 2 or 3 weeks, you can drink the tea at the time we recommened in the article.

    • TeaVivre

      Hello letty, it is interesting that there is a tea named The Secret Tea. Yet we are not sure what tea it is. But according to our knowledge, pu-erh tea is qualified to be called as a secret tea, since the tea’s making, flavor and aroma are distinctive from other teas.

  • Can you add stevia to pu-erh without compromising the “losing weight purpose”?

      Yes you can add stevia, or other sweetening agents, if you do not drink pu-erh for losing weight.

  • Where can I buy this tea sounds great!I want to lose weight so I can be healthier and feel great.

      In the same time, to keep fit requires you to keep reasonable diet and do exercise regularly.

  • I have purchased Pu-Erh tea bags. It states it is 100% young pu-erh tea leaves. By prince of peace. I brew the tea bags in my coffee maker and keep brewing until it becomes light in color. And then transfer it into a gallon container. I do it several times to fill the gallon container. then i can drink it throughout the day into the next day. Is Its pretty strong but it doesnt bother me and I really dont feel hungry. I do not use anything else to flavor it. Is it ok to do this, or should I just do a couple cups at a time.

    Is there any benefit drinking it hot or cold?

    Thank you

    • TeaVivre

      It is correct way that drinking tea without adding sugar or milk. But the better to brew Pu-erh tea is by using Gaiwan or Purple Clay (Zi Sha) Teapot. If you do not have these two, glasses or normal teapot can be used. When drinking, brew one cup, finish it, and do not make it too light, thus the effect will be better. If you mix the tea liquor together from different brewing, it will take long time to finish it. But if you do not drink tea liquor for a long time, the beneficial substances in it can prone to change easily. This may affect the effect of losing weight. Hence I suggest you to finish the liquid as soon as possible.

      For the cold tea, the activity of beneficial substances in tea can decrease under low temperature, and this also may influence its effects. So I advise you to drink hot tea.

  • Hi I’m lina I just herd about this weight loss trail weight 287 I really want to get healthy I just want to make sure this is right for me cuz I’m trying to lose a lot of weight very quick

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Lina, drinking pu-erh indeed will do great help for losing weight, but normally it does not work very quick. However, it can help you to lose weight in a healtheir way. Like I said to Caitilin, under the drinking pe-erh tea condition, to keep fit still requires a combination of healthy eating and regular exercise.

  • Hi, How are you, I’m Interested in purchasing the
    Pu-erh tea for weight loss. I read consumers should be careful, because some Pu-erh tea can be high in flouride, and could cause flouride poisoning, Do you know anything about this?

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Beth, in fact there is research shows that the content of fluorine of Pu-erh tea mostly between 80~120mg/kg. It’s in a safe and healthy range.

      Currently there is no other country and international organization in the world to set the limitation standard of fluoride in tea besides China. We have the agricultural industry’s standard issued by the Ministry of Agriculture, which sets a standard of fluoride’s content in Pu-erh cake that should be under 200 mg/kg.

      Though there were rumors about fluorine in Pu-erh tea, but you may not worry about drinking it. Actually it is safe to drink Pu-erh tea and the content of fluorine in Pu-erh tea lower than national standard of China.

  • Hi! I’ve only recently discovered this tea. I’ve been trying to read as much as possible on it. I gained weight last year due to a hormone imbalance. My hormones are back on track but I’m struggling with the weight loss. I have about 20 lbs to lose. I’m interested in trying out puerh tea but I don’t know where to start or what tea to start with. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you 🙂

    • TeaVivre

      The ripened pu-erh tea can keep the stomach fit and warm it, not too much bitterness. It is good choice for the beginner. I recommend you Fengqing Golden Buds Ripened Pu-erh Cake Tea 2005, here is the link: https://www.teavivre.com/golden-buds-pu-erh-cake-2005/.

      However the raw pu-erh tea has a better effect on weight loss than the ripened pu-erh tea, but with its strong bitter. Fengqing Raw Pu-erh Cake Tea 2006 Paddy Flavor is good: https://www.teavivre.com/raw-pu-erh-cake-tea-2006/.

      If you can bear the bitterness and have a good stomach, you can start to drink the raw pu-erh tea, otherwise you’d better to try the ripened pu-erh tea first, and after a few days, you can start to drink both the ripened pu-erh tea and raw pu-erh tea, remember not mix them together but drink them at different time. The best time to drink a cup of Pu-erh tea for weight loss goals is one hour after a meal, so that the Pu-erh tea can remove excess grease and help your body eliminate unwanted and leftover, hard-to-digest fats.

      In the meantime, you also should keep the balanced diet and do some exercise regularly.

      Overall, you can lose weight by using these methods. Hope you can succeed.

  • Hi, First off I want to tell you guys that it does work very well I lost 20lbs in 2 weeks. But I got a question a bit off topic how can I tell what year is my pu-erh, any tips? Thank you 🙂

    • TeaVivre

      Glad to hear it helps you! 🙂 Usually, if the production year is not printed on the tea’s package, you can tell whether the pu-erh is newly made or an old tea, depending on the color of the dry tea, the color of tea liquid, and its flavor. The darker the colors are, and the mellower the flavor is, the older the tea is. Even raw puerh will become thicker and mellower after years’ storage. New harvested pu-erh often has stronger taste, especially new raw pu-erh. They could be very astringent.
      Yet for the moment there seems to be no way to tell the exact production year of the pu-erh without its package. But hope this can help you to know more about your pu-erh.

  • I recently bought a box of 100 tea bags, so far I have drank some but how long does it take to work , what are the effects that its working? Do you bowel movements? Thanks

  • Is it ok to drink Pu’erh tea over ice? And how would you make it?

    • TeaVivre

      It’s ok to drink Pu-erh tea iced in summer. But if you drink it for losing weight purpose, or for its health benefits, then iced pu-erh tea will not give a good performance in both the two aspects. Low temperature will restrain the activity of benefitial substances in the Pu-erh tea. Meanwhile, it will not be easy to taste the profound flavor and aroma of Pu-erh tea if you iced it, because all the fragrant and benefitial substances in tea can only be highly dissolved in hot water.
      If you like to have iced tea, you can firstly brew the Pu-erh in normal procedure, and after the tea is made, move the tea liquid in your refrigerator. After 6 – 8 hours, the tea liquid will be iced and you can drink by then. But iced pu-erh will not taste as good as hot tea, you can add a small amount of honey or sugar into it for a better flavor.

  • Vee

    I would like to know if using pu-erh tea bags or pu-erh cakes have any different effects for weight loss. Which one would u recommend I use? N can u explain the process of brewing with each one. I’m confused.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Vee, it is better to drink pu-erh cake for weight loss purpose, because cake is compressed tea, which can maintain the benefitial substances for a much longer time than pu-erh tea bags. Moreover, usually the tea leaves of pu-erh cake has higher quality than tea bags. So the weight loss effection of pu-erh cake performs better. To brew pu-erh tea cake, you can take a look at our recommended brewing guide of pu-erh cakes: How to Brew an Enjoyable Pu-erh Tea. Hope this is helpful for your questions 🙂

  • MP

    I forgot to ask you one more question, I am also taking magnesium chloride for an other health issue, can I mix the Pu Reh Yuancha Black tea with this virgin mineral?

    Thank you

  • MP

    I just purchased a pu erh cake 10 year, not sure how much I can take per day, and how many ounces per serving? Also I am taking Charithromycin, Omeprazole,and Amoxicillin for the H. Pylori infection, my question is, can I take this tea while taking these medications? How about when you are in your menstrual cycle? please advice, I do need to loose a lot of weight as well, when is the best time to drink the tea, before meals or after for better effect…

    Thank you

    • TeaVivre

      Hi, It is not suggested to drink tea when you’re taking medicines, no matter what kind of medicine. Because some substances in tea liquid may restrain the medicine’s effection, or react to some components in the medicine. It is also not suggested to drink tea during your cycle, as well as other particular periods of women, like beast breeding or pregnancy, which I’ve mentioned in the comments before. If you really need to take the tea, you may try to drink it after two hours of taking your pills, and check if there is any adverse reaction, or if the pills works as usual. If there’s no problem, you can drink a cup of pu-erh tea liquid in the time I recommended. But I still suggest you to ask your doctor for more professional advices.
      One more thing, do exercise is always the most healthy and effective way for losing weight.

  • I bought the Yunnan pu-erh tea from a tea shop loose. Will this be as good as the cake to lose weight?

    • TeaVivre

      Hi connie, usually loose tea’s storage is not as easy as pu-erh cake. It contact more air and water than compressed cake tea, so after a long time the benefitial substances in the loose tea leaves will lose much more than in pu-erh cake. Thus loose tea doesn’t have that much weight loss benefits as compressed cakes, but if you drink it properly, it should still works for losing weight.

  • Hi there, I have read everything so far about your responses to drinking pu-her tea. But yet in the woman’s world magazine a Chinese man is saying to drink 2 cups of the tea while eating and then also have a few cups of tea throughout your day. You are now saying the opposite. I am so confused now. He says that’s why Chinese people are so thin.

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Simone, in fact not all Chinese people drink tea. We are thin because of evolution and environment. We have smaller skeleton and our body can store less fat rather than western people who live in colder areas.We suggest not to drink tea while eating because tea liquid will thin your stomach juice, which may cause indigestion. It’s better to take the Pu-erh tea after 1 hour after eating your meal.

  • Hello,
    I just purchased a Pu’er tea from shanghai merchant, it wasnt all compressed together but the pieces are pretty big so i wanna know if you can tell me that it is the right one am drinking. Also i do workout (pretty intense cardio workout) is it good if i have it after my workout to help relax my muscles and burn more fat or it wont help at all?

    Thanks,

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Sally, according to your description, I ‘m not quite sure about what kind the pu-erh is of. But if you can taste pure and mellow taste from it, meaning its good quality, it should work. And very glad to hear that you do workout. This is very good for losing weight. But it is not suggested to drink pu-erh tea after sports. Because after doing exercises, your heart is under heavy burden to ensure your body getting enough oxygen. However, teas contain large amount of theophylline and have caffeine, especially heavy teas, which will stimulate the heart to work harder. Thus it may cause bad effect to your health. So if you want to drink pu-erh tea after workout, it’s better to wait for 1 to 2 hours.
      You can also drink your pu-erh tea before doing exercise. Reseaches shows that the catechinic acid in teas can help to enlarge the effection of doing workout to burn fat.

  • dm

    I read an article that puerh tea will help an individual to lose weight quickly. The article also said that two cups of tea while eating the meal is recommended.Also that splenda and lemon can be added to a cup of tea.Can you please advise? My other question deals with using tea bags. I bought 12 tea bags for $9.00.One box was jasmine flavor, the other bold flavor.Can these be used to help with weight loss?

    • TeaVivre

      We suggest not to drink pu-erh tea or any other tea during meal, because tea liquid will thin your stomach juice, which will affect digestion. If you happen to suffer a dyspepsia at the time, then drinking tea when eating may cause worse symptom. For adding splenda and lemon into pu-erh tea you mentioned, I guess the article recommends this because splenda or lemon can bring better taste to the tea. It may be ok for new pu-erh drinker, but it will influence the tea’s weight loss effect due to extra sugar absorbed. So if you take the tea for only losing weight purpose, it is not suggested to add splenda and lemon in it.
      For your second question, usually the tea leaves in tea bags are smashed into small pieces, thus it could not confirm the tea’s quality. So it is not certain if the pu-erh tea bags are that much helpful for weight loss, comparing to normal pu-erh cakes or bricks. Yet you can drink it either. It could help more or less.

  • I just need a bit of clarity. Is it fine to drink the tea BEFORE you eat as well as AFTER you eat? Is it my understanding that the reason it could cause you to gain weight if you drink it before is because you will have an increased appetite? Is it one hour before and after?
    Thanks!

    • TeaVivre

      Dear May, to drink the puerh before you eat indeed will increase you appetite because it helps digestion, at the same time the weight-loss-benefitial substance is also working in your body. So it requires a strong control of appetite if drink before meal. Normally, it is suggested to drink it one hour after meal.

  • Vel

    My question is. I recently purchased a box of pu-erh tea bags distributed by Prince of Peace company with Chinese writing on it. Perhaps that is a marketing tool to draw customers to purchase it. I was reading in one of your recent comments and you indicated that this tea does not come in a tea bag form. So, what did I purchase. Will a health food store have the raw kind? And, will the tea bags that I have have the same weight loss benefit as the raw. I purchased a box of 100 and need to use them.

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Vel, the tea you bought should be pu-erh. But I can’t say whether it is of the right quality. Because for Pu-erh teas, it is better to be made into cake or brick shape for its unique processing. The compressed appearance can make sure the tea’s flavor and taste be remained, and can help the leaves continueing to ferment under the natural condition. Considering this, the tea bag pu-erh is not able to continue the fermentation, as well as restrain its original flavor. Thus its benefit of losing weight may be less than the original compressed puerh. Yet you can still drink the tea.
      If you want to purchase compressed raw pu-erh, you can search in your local tea shop. It may not be available in a food store. If you cannot find it locally, then an online shopping would be suggested.

  • hi!!where can get Pu-er tea from….

    • TeaVivre

      Hi shivani, You can buy puerh teas from our site TeaVivre.com. We have various kinds of pu-erh tea available for purchase, including raw pu-erh and ripened pu-erh. You can have a look: https://www.teavivre.com/pu-erh-tea/

  • Hi , I am breastfeeding . Can I drink pureh tea ?

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Pavi, it is not suggest to drink pu-erh tea, or any other kind of strong teas during the period of breast-feeding. Because too much tannic acid or a little amount of caffeine will affect the baby’s health. So if you want to drink tea, it’s better to drink very very light teas, such as white tea or green tea, and better not to drink too much.

  • I read if you drink puerh tea to lose weight you shouldn’t have any other drink can I drink water in between drinking the tea and 1 cup of coffee will this hinder me losing weight

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Laurie, it is better not to take other drinks when you are having pu-erh tea for weight loss purpose, such as coffee. But water is out of this limitation because pure water don’t contain sugar or any other elements that may influence your weight loss effection.

  • Thank you, just purchased the Fengging Raw..Tuocha. I’ll be sure to touch back with you, thanks for your help.

  • Hello,

    When I asked if a pu-erh blend would work I meant purchased as a blend. I’m not mixing it with juices etc. I have found a pu-erh blend containing the rosehip, oolong etc.

    Thanks Again 🙂

    • TeaVivre

      This kind of blend pu-erh tea is not recommended for weight loss. It could be a very nice tea for relaxing, but it will bring extra carbohydrate into your drink. So it’s better to take pure Pu-erh.

  • Like a few others i’m confused, drinking Pu-erh tea is better to drink before meals or after? Or doesn’t it matter? I have alot of weight to lose, like 60-70lbs. Will drinking this tea work for me? Also I’m on adipex weight loss med. Is it ok to drink this tea and adipex together?
    Thank You

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Karen. It is better to drink pu-erh tea after meal. But it is ok to drink it before meal yet you need a very strong control of appetite in case the tea makes you feel hungry. If you drink a cup of Pu-erh tea after each meal every day, and stop to take any other sugary drinks and high-calorie foods, in the mean time do proper exercises often, you will see the weight decreasing. However, please do not take pu-erh tea together with adipex, or any other kinds of diet pills. The weight-loss-effective substance in pu-erh tea, like tea polyphenol and catechinic acid, will be restrained by the chemical element in pills. On the other hand the tea also influences the pill’s effect.

  • Will a pu-erh blend work as well. Example, pu-erh blended with oolong, rosehip peels,pieces of apple,strawberry,beetroot..mint
    Thank You

    • TeaVivre

      Hi Luraellen. If you drink Pu-erh teas for weight loss purpose, it is not suggested to blend or mix other beverages or fruits with it, because carbohydrate and other substances may affect its effection of losing weight.

  • where do I purchase raw pu-erh tea?? I am anxious to start losing weight but cant find the tea.

  • Where can I find PU-erh tea bags. I live in Brownsville Texas. Which is better the leaf or the tea bag and which on is better for weight lost.

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Laura, Pu-erh tea is normally made into cake shape. So it doesn’t have tea bags. Pu-erh cakes is theoretically better for weight loss because the effective substances for losing weight are maitained in larger amount in cakes. Pu-erh tea has two kinds: the raw and the ripened. Raw pu-erh has stronger effects on losing weight, but it is lightly stimulating for stomach. So if you don’t have a strong stomach, it is better to drink ripened pu-erh tea for losing weight, which is also helpful for weight loss.

  • I have a question if i would like to drink pu erh and oolong in the same time what is thebest way?i heard that oolong in the morning and pu erh after meal???thank you

    • TeaVivre

      Hello Renata. You can drink oolong in the morning or before meal, and pu-erh after meal, which may help to lose weight in better effect. But it differs from different people. Some people may have obvious loss on weight but some may not. And more, if you are not a requent tea drinker, you may get drunk by drinking two different kinds of tea in a short time. And the most important thing is losing weight needs time and patience. It is better to drink tea for a long time, in the mean time take exercises.

  • i want to loose some weight, i been trying many teas in the market, but nothing. i have a strong stomach and a slow metabolism. what tea you recomend?

    • TeaVivre

      You can try pu-erh tea then. But drinking pu-erh tea to lose weight is a slow process and need your long-tern persist. You can keep drinking it as a habit everyday. And you said you have a strong stomach and a slow metabolism, you can try raw pu-erh, which has stronger effection on losing weight.

  • I am a little confused on all the sites I read it says to take Pu-erh Tea 1 hour after eating for best results but you are saying to take it before a meal. Can you please clarify?

    • TeaVivre

      Actually both ways will work. But if you drink it before meals, it will be more stimulating for stomach. So if your stomach is not strong or healthy enough, it’s better to drink the pu-erh tea after a meal.

    • TeaVivre

      We suggest you to seperate your meal and pu-erh. If it’s not possible to drink the pu-erh tea before breakfast, you can drink it an hour after taking the porridge. It’s the same for lunch and dinner.

  • SD

    You said to drink pu erh tea in the morning but not to eat. Breakfast is the most important meal because it jump starts your metabolism..I can’t skip that meal or ill be grumpy all day, what should I do? Drink pu erh after I have breakfast?

    • TeaVivre

      Thank you for questioning. The information in the pargraph was indeed confusing. We will modify it into a clearer one.

      You can just drink the tea before having your breakfast. That is the originnal meaning we want to express, pu-erh tea first and breakfast second. And sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Does Puerh tea have caffeine or a stimulant like caffeine in it?

    • TeaVivre

      There is caffeine existing in Pu-erh tea, but with only a small amount lower than 10%. Pu-erh tea is stimulant but it is not stimulating as coffee.

  • I tried this tea a year ago BEFORE i began my annual spring tighten up for summer. I HAVE NOT BEEN TO THE GYM SINCE!!! I was a major coffee person and quit since the caffiene is on a crack level (awesome!)

    • TeaVivre

      If drinking before meal, it will make people hungry. Meanwhile, please do not increase the appetite. Then, drinking again an hour after meal. Making hungry will consume more fat. Thank you.

    And is puerh green, white (probably not), black or a sort on it’s own because of de pile fermintation?

    • TeaVivre

      Yes, but i think it is better that drinking some water besides Pu-erh tea. Pu-erh tea is a sort on it’s own because of making craftwork and fermentation classification are differen from other teas.

  • Can you take L-carntine with your pu-erh tea. L-carntine is a supplement for fat burner as Well. Can you tell me can you take any kind of weight loss supplement with pu-erh teas.

    • TeaVivre

      We always suggest that to drink pu-erh tea and some other drink in a different time, though L-carnitine is good for losing weight and has an obvious effect on it. You can arrange your diet and beverage as you want. To be healthier and stronger, I suggest you can take more excercises and sports as well.

Just drinking Pu-erh tea all throughout the day without adding any other Chinese tea or drinks to diet besides Pu-erh tea ideally, which do this the weight loss effects will be the most noticeable. Of course, you can drink other teas.

      You don’t need to worry about the baby fat 🙂 Usually baby fat will disappear by themselves as time goes by, so there is no need to lose them on purpose. But you can lose them by exercise, diet or other ways. To keep a rational eating & training habit will be good to you. If you want to lose the baby fat by drinking tea, you can choose any kind of pu-erh on our site. Because every of them is helpful for weight loss.

    • TeaVivre

      For your question about drinking time, if you drink it before breakfast, will cause you hungry very quickly, and you will eat more on breakfast. So you maybe gain weight. However, if you do not increase the eating on breakfast, although you feel very hungry when you drink before breakfast. You will lose weight quickly.

  • Leo

    Hey there, sorry about the ignorant question but what’s the difference between fresh and cooked tea?

  • Give me a good recipe for the diet teas. I have all that Dr. Oz recommended and need the best combination to follow.
    Thanks

    • TeaVivre

    I have normal to low blood pressure, would these tea lower my blood pressure more? My cholesterol level is very normal with Lipitor, would I need to stop the lipitor?

    • TeaVivre

      It does not have a big influence without ginger and lemon juice. The raw pu-erh tea will a little affect for your sleep, and ripened pu-erh tea is better. For your diet, we recommend that do not eat more, and do some exercise, it is necessary. And lipitor, we often says that the pu-erh tea is not diet pills, only plays a certain role in promoting your health and can not fully substitute for the drug. Thank you.

  • What is the different between pu-erh tea and white tea…. I really need an advice I need to lose weigh please help

    • TeaVivre

      The white tea belongs to slightly fermented tea, pu-erh tea belongs to fermented tea. And white tea’s Tea Polyphenols is less than pu-erh tea’s. So pu-erh tea is better than white tea for lose weight.

  • Yes

    Hello again, I have been drinking 8 cups of pu erh tea per day for about two weeks to loose weight and I think that it is giving me heartburn. Is that possible? Should I drink less?

    • TeaVivre

      As we told you before, everyone has a different physique. So we can not decide that the 8 cups for you per day is better or not. We recommend that when you feel something wrong for your stomach, please drink less or consult the doctor.

  • I’ve been drinking Pu-erh (Numi) with my breakfast. I got the Woman’s World magazine and article with Dr. Oz does not state that you should drink it witin one hour after a meal or you will gain weight. I took Lipozene (100) doses for about 3 months and I not only didn’t loose weight, I gained weight without increasing food intake.
    I only started taking the Pu-erh tea for three days now. What is the best time to drink the Pu-erh in the morning? I also added the white tea, but made it separately and drink that late morning and early afternoon because of the caffiene. Help. I don’t want to gain weight.

    • TeaVivre

      We recommend that do not drink pu-erh tea and white tea at the same time. The best time to drink pu-erh: before breakfast. And for the drinking after meal, in common, after about 1 hour is a better way.

  • I would like to know if I take the pu-erh tea and white tea together will they help me lose weight. I feel that I haven’t lost any weigh and I have been taking the tea for at least three months. Please help me because i am determine to lose weight. I have noticed that my energy has picked up and i am not thristy as much.

    • TeaVivre

      We recommend that do not drink pu-erh tea and white tea at the same time, and should need some time to rest then drink white tea after you drink pu-erh. And the pu-erh is not diet pills, so it needs a long time to lose weight. For a better way, you should do some exercise.

  • A little confused,drinking Dr. oz teas correctly but gaining weight, also counting calories 1500 a day still gaining weight. whats wrong?

    • TeaVivre

      Could you please tell us do you often do some exercise? we recommend that not only drink pu-erh tea, but also do some exercise. This is the better way.

  • yes

    Thank you.

  • yes

    Hello, ok I’m a little confused. I bought 12 year pu ehr cake tea. I was told to drink 8 cups a day. Is that too much? I read an article that said to only drink 2 cups per day. I want to loose weight. What is the proper way? When will i notice results? Once i achieve my goal how much tea should i drink? Thank you

    • TeaVivre

      We also think 8 cups is enough. Proper way: proper time drink pu-erh tea(you can see some details answer from us on this article), and keep doing some exercise. This is not like diet pill which may only need a short time. Drinking puerh needs a long term, I am sorry that I can not give you the exactly time, because each person has a different physique, so how much tea depends on your body. You can try it 8 cups everyday.

  • But u never answered the above question? I also am trying to follow doctor Oz’s 8 cups of water with 8 oz pu-erh tea and 8 oz white tea. Chilled and stored in the fridge for a two day supply. Is that a good way of drinking it? I really have a hard time drinking teas hot would rather have it cold. And also while eating I have to drink something can’t I drink water and then a hour later drink the tea?

    • TeaVivre

      We recommend that do not drink pu-erh tea and white tea at the same time, and should need some time to rest then drink white tea after you drink pu-erh. Chilled and stored in the fridge is a good way, but we still recommend to choose hot tea. And drinking tea after eating an hour later is better for your stomach, because while eating to drink something will dilute gastric juice, then something bad will affect your stomach.

  • I have one additional question.
    Dr Oz in the Woman’s Day Article mentioned that the tea is to be steeped for 5 mins. Yet the article mentions that Pu-erh tea should only be brewed for 60 seconds. Which is correct.

    Thanks again for your help.

    • TeaVivre

      Thanks for your valuable advice of our article. We suggest not to drink mixed teas because they are produced in different crafting methods. If you mix them together when drinking, the original flavor and aroma of each will be impacted. Besides, though tea can help to lose weight, it needs a long time of persist. To have a good habit of drinking tea also takes an important place for your weight loss.
      If not take it serious it doesn’t matter whether you drink teas after meal or before meal, even with meal as many western people do, but teavivre suggest not drink within an hour after your meal because the stomach will secretes acids to help digest when you are eating. The digest will last for half an hour or more. If you drink teas immediately after a meal, acids in your stomach will be thinned by the tea soup, which will affect digest and leads to a negative effect for your health.

  • This is interesting because Dr. OZ actually published in the Womens’s Day Magazine an article discussing drinking teas for weight loss. In this article, he recommends 16 Oz Pu-Erh tea in the AM, 16 Oz White tea for lunch, Dandolin tea for dinner and Cinnimon tea for later in the PM. OR He recommends boiling 8 cups of water and adding
    8 Pu-erh tea bags & 8 White tea bags with ginger slices & lemon juice as the ultimate fat burning tea. He recommends 16 Oz of this blend in the AM and at lunch to replace the
    16 Oz Pu-erh tea in the AM & 16 Oz White tea at lunch. Yet your article states that mixing teas like this decreases the weight loss effect of
    Pu-erh tea. Which is correct?
    Also, he states that this is to be drunk with breakfast, lunch and dinner while this article states that Pu-erh tea should be drunk 1 Hour after a meal. Which is correct?
    Also, the article states that ONLY
    Pu-erh tea is to be drunk (ie: not even water is to be drunk). Doesn’t the body need Water to function properly? Wouldn’t you get dehydrated since drinks like tea, etc do not realy hydrate you? I know that when I drink tea or other dirnks, I still feel thirsty and need water to remain properly hydrated.

    Please advise.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

      If you want to lose weight by drinking Pu-erh, Raw tea is better to choose. Raw Pu-erh tea acts much more effective in weight loss, but it will affect stomach. While Ripe Pu-erh can protect your stomach and other digest organs. So if you have a strong stomach, you can drink only Raw pu-erh for a better effect of losing weight. If not, you can drink Raw tea and Ripe tea together, to decrease the harm to your stomach. And both of the two methods need to be taken for a long time, but not be taken a large amount of. If you drink too much, it may affect sleep, and even do harm for your digest system. It’s better to be rational. To keep a good habit of eating and drinking tea will make it easier.

But if you can keep long-term drinking, Pu-erh tea can perform well of losing weight while does good to your health.
