Questions & Answers
Answer: WuLong is an extraordinarily rare, delicately fermented form of oolong (also known as WuLong) tea that the Chinese have been using to promote weight loss and overall health for more than 400 years.
Our WuLong tea has only one ingredient: 100% pure, premium oolong tea leaves. It is completely natural, and there are never any additives or preservatives.
Answer: Our WuLong tea supports weight loss by naturally increasing metabolism, and helping to turn your food into fuel.*
WuLong contains a large quantity of polyphenols and EGCG. These powerful antioxidants have been shown to naturally raise metabolism and increase fat burning. In addition, WuLong has been shown to help regulate blood sugar spikes, which can help to avoid unhealthy cravings.*
A 2001 study published in the Journal of Nutrition concluded that drinking regular amounts of oolong tea not only increases metabolic rate, but also increased fat oxidation in its subjects. This study showed a 12% increase in fat oxidation over a 24-hour period after drinking the tea, and an overall significant increase in energy expenditure (EE)*
Answer: In China, tea has historically been used as a medicine. Many studies 1, 2, 3 have been carried out up to the present day about the effects of tea, including its natural weight loss benefits, which 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 and stay in good shape without becoming too fat and too heavy.”
Why does weight gain occur? Among other food items taken into your body through meals every day, sugar and fat are synthesized into triglyceride in the liver and the small intestine, which are then carried in the bloodstream and distributed throughout various tissues in the body. Triglyceride fat is the level of fat contained in the human body and is used as a source of energy for life support and physical activities. Excess amounts of triglyceride will be deposited within fat cells, which results in weight gain.
A study by International Journal of Obesity2 found polyphenol, which is the main tea antioxidant contained within WuLong tea, is effective in controlling body fat. Specifically, it activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglyceride. Regular intake of this kind of tea can contribute to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and to controlling obesity.
Studies were conducted to verify the effect of this kind of tea on the prevention of body fatness. In one study, lab animals were divided into three groups: One was a control group that was given normal feed and water; another was given high-calorie feed containing extra fat and water; while the third group was given the same kind of high-calorie feed but with this kind of tea as a drink. All the animals weighed the same before the experiments but weighed differently six weeks later according to their groups. The two groups of high-calorie-fed animals gained more weight than the control group with the normal feed, and no weight difference was observed between the two groups of high-calorie-fed animals.
But when the fat cells of the two groups of animals were compared, the quantity of the visceral fat and that of the subcutaneous fat of the group of animals that were given WuLong tea was smaller than that of the other group. It was also proven that even when animals were given fatty food, if they were also given this kind of tea, they were prevented from becoming obese without any effect on their growth.
In another clinical test, 75 overweight individuals between 22 and 68 years of age were asked to consume a drink made by infusing two packs of this kind of tea in water, once in the morning and once in the afternoon for six weeks. They were also asked to refrain from receiving any dietary treatment or taking any exercise.
Echography sensors were placed at a spot 3 cm to the right of the naval of each of the subjects to measure the thickness of their subcutaneous fat. Compared with readings before the test, the thickness of subcutaneous fat decreased by about 4 mm on average after completion of the study.
In another study published in the August 2003 edition of the Journal of Medical Investigation, scientists from Japan’s University of Tokushima School of Medicine3 found that people who drank two cups a day of this kind of tea experienced 2.5 times greater calorie-burning results than those who drank the same amount of authentic Japanese green tea.
Answer: We sell our WuLong product exclusively online, so you will not find our premium WuLong in stores. We do this to bring you our premium Oolong tea at its best cost.
By cutting out the middlemen and retail stores, we are able to take those costs out of the purchase and sell directly to our consumers. This saves you an estimated 20-30%.
But we ship all over the world, with priority shipping using United Parcel Service (UPS) and the USPS Priority International. This way, it doesn’t matter where you are. We’ll bring our WuLong to you!
Answer: Our WuLong has a very long shelf life. If stored properly, it can be safe to use for many years from the date you receive it. Be sure to keep it somewhere dry, cool, and out of sunlight. We ship our Wulong Oolong teas in sealed packages. Teas only start degrading once they are exposed to oxygen. Teas will never expire, but the potency of the tea can be lost over significant time, so store you tea in a cool and dry place. Experts say once the tea package is opened and exposed to oxygen, the shelp life is about 2 years for maximum flavor and potentcy.
Answer: While many enjoy our WuLong on its own, there is nothing wrong with adding to its flavor. Of course, if you add to our WuLong, choose your sweetener wisely. A good rule of thumb is to keep it natural. Lemon or honey can be very delicious and nutritious. Avoid sugar and instead opt for Stevia, a zero calorie, natural sweetener.

- When to Use WuLong – We recommend drinking one cup of tea in the morning 15 minutes before a healthy breakfast, and then again about 15 minutes before a healthy lunch. It is important to know that our tea products will be most effective when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise program. While some may enjoy a cup in the evening or with the dinner meal, those who are sensitive to caffeine should be advised that the tea does contain some caffeine.
- How to Make WuLong- Traditional WuLong Tea: Bring 6 ounces of water to a rolling boil, take off the heat and allow your teabag to steep for 3-5 minutes then discard.
- Capsules vs. Tea Bags- Our oolong tea capsules are as easy to use as a vitamin. Capsules should be taken with a full glass of water 15 minutes before a healthy breakfast, and then again 15 minutes before lunch. The capsules are slightly more concentrated than our teas, so the caffeine level is a little higher as well. Capsules contain approximately 34mg of caffeine compared to a 8 ounce cup of coffee that is approximately 200mg.
- Hot vs. Cold- Premium WuLong makes for a delicious, nourishing cup of iced tea. The tea carries the same health and fat-fighting benefits hot or cold, so feel free to drink premium WuLong either way.Great Slimming Iced Tea (based on 1 quart of tea):
- Bring ½ quart of fresh water up to almost (but not quite) boiling.
- Pour the hot water into a heat safe pitcher and steep with 5 tea bags for about 5 minutes.
- Sweeten if desired.
- Finally, add enough ice until the tea is cold enough not to melt the ice cubes anymore.
Answer: Teas contain a number of ingredients that have an influence on the human body. The quantities and percentages of these ingredients differ widely depending on the extent of fermentation. Green tea contains a wealth of one ingredient called “catechin,” while WuLong tea contains a large quantity of tea polyphenols. According to research1, it has become clear that polyphenol is the ingredient that generates the delicious flavor unique to WuLong tea and can help to promote beauty, a health body, energy and well-being*.

Answer: WuLong is an essential metabolism booster. Drinking WuLong is necessary as long as you are following a weight loss program. That said, oolong tea has many other antioxidant benefits, including giving you glowing, healthy skin, stronger teeth, a sharper brain, and a healthy heart. Many customers continue to drink WuLong after reaching their weight loss goals to maintain their hard earned body and continue feeling healthy and happy for their entire lives.
Answer: WuLong is made of 100% all natural, pure oolong tea, with NO fillers and NO preservatives. It is also Certified Organic. It contains NO sugar and NO artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.
Answer: If you have any medical condition or are on medication we strongly recommend that you consult with your physician before using this or any nutritional product. If nursing or pregnant, please consult with your physician.
Also, there is a moderate amount of naturally occurring caffeine in oolong tea. The amount of caffeine is equivalent to 1/3 of a cup of coffee (3 cups of coffee = 1 cup of oolong tea). If you have sensitivities to caffeine, we recommend consulting your doctor. Caffeine is also extremely water soluble. You can eliminate over 50% of the caffeine in the tea by steeping a cup of water, swirling the tea bag in the hot water for 10-15 seconds, throw the water out and then re steep the tea bag. This eliminates much of the caffeine but gives you the rest of the healthy benefits of WuLong.
