Beginners guide to losing weight with Pu’er tea

Does Pu’er Tea really help you lose weight?


Pu’er Tea is one of China’s best secrets until recently. Note that it is not merely a “weight loss” tea, just like water is not merely a hydration tool. Pu’er Tea comes from Camellia Sinensis Tea Trees and is often picked from trees that have been growing for hundreds of years. This allows the leaves to be full of nutrients and have a depth of flavor and benefits that other teas (picked from young bushes) cannot compare to.

Does Pu’er tea help weight loss?

This is a wonderful question and something that is important. For us, it ties into the question also of “When to drink Pu’er tea?” because if consumed before a meal it may not be as helpful for weight loss as if it were consumed after the meal. The tea needn’t be treated as a ritual or even a medicine, but should still be enjoyed while drinking the tea, as there are many many other benefits to Pu’er tea besides just weight loss. However, there has been tremendous research and results for people drinking the tea to lose weight or aid in digestion, but everyone’s results will be their own. If one wants any good benefits though, quality is key. Great health will not come out of mediocre teas. A great tea will help you to feel great.

Reduce body fat

  • Pu’er Tea helps reduce body fat because of its ability to cleanse the blood
  • Promote circulation
  • Remove bad cholesterol from the body.
  • Drinking Pu’er Tea throughout the day, especially after heavy meals, helps clear the bloodstream of oils and fats.
  • This is the same tea that is set out in restaurants and bakeries in China to pull the oil out of the air; this is exactly what it does in the body.

Dr. Oz and many others have shown the world how it reduces body fat to drink a couple of cups a day of Pu’er Tea, especially one of the highest quality. The biggest research done on this is by the College of Medicine in Taiwan.

Slimming with Pu’er tea

  • Drinking Pu’er Tea before a meal will cleanse the body of oils and actually increase appetite, so it is important to drink this tea after meals or well-before.
  • In traditional Chinese medicine, [Pu’er] tea is the only herb recommended/prescribed to patients for daily consumption.
  • Drinking cups from early in the morning until late in the evening is not problematic as long as it is not consumed on a completely empty stomach.
  • Not recommended to drink while fasting from food.

Pu’er tea and digestion

  • Pu’er tea is used in Asia as a digestive aid.
  • Promotes intestinal health
  • Increases blood flow towards the abdomen and core.
  • Increases blood flow to the colon and intestines.
  • Quickly and efficiently digest food
  • Promotes regularity

Pu’er tea and periods or menstrual pains

  • Pu’er Tea is often prescribed to women in China who are dealing with menstrual pains.
  • The increased blood flow to the core and digestion/reproductive organs allows a release of pressure.
  • Pu’er Tea is known for curing bloating immediately.

Pu’er tea and hangovers

  • Drinking Pu’er tea at the end of a night of drinking will help the “buzz” fade quickly.
  • The caffeine and L-Theanine counteract the chemistry of the alcohol in the body.
  • The next morning, drinking this tea will also allow one to recover. The blood is rejuvenated.

Pu’er tea and stress

  • Pu’er Tea has been used in dozens of studies where stress or stress-like conditions are needed to be cured.
  • Being that the tea is high in the amino acid GABA, Pu’er Tea is a go-to for reducing anxiety, stress, and promoting an overall well-being.
  • If stress is a part of anyone’s life, weight gain is often to follow.
  • Reduces stress and promotes well-being.
  • GABA is an acid in Pu’er that is known to affect the central nervous system, often prescribed to people for anxiety. GABA is present in Pu’er tea.

Pu’er Tea and high blood pressure

  • Pu’er Tea, high in the amino acid GABA, is often prescribed for reducing blood pressure.
  • GABA is sold over the counter alone for Blood Pressure and Stress Relief, but drinking Pu’er Tea is going to bring dozens of other benefits along with the GABA.
  • GABA helps our bodies make and release endorphins, the chemical that makes us feel happy.
  • Happiness is a huge part of health. Drink great Pu’er Tea, be happy.

Pu’er Tea and lowering cholesterol

A study was conducted with 500 hyperlipidemia patients (individuals with advanced cholesterol conditions, usually controlled with medication). Half of the controlled group consumed 3-4 cups of Pu’er Tea daily, while the rest of the participants were given water or otherwise. After a 30-day period, the results showed that drinking Pu’er Tea on a regular basis will significantly lower cholesterol and further research confirmed that Pu’er was as effective as the most advanced cholesterol lowering medications available.

Pu’er Tea and water intake

It is recommended for us to drink 8 cups of water a day, but it is most important for us to drink 8 cups of cleanwater each day, not just any water. This is the same for tea. Quality is key and quality is what Misty Peak is all about.

If you plan to start or continue drinking Pu’er Tea, remember that quality is the most important aspect of this equation. Make sure the tea is sourced from a farm that does not use pesticides and is handled with care. We source from one family who grows the tea for their own consumption, so they handle it with the upmost care.

Use clean tea, great water, and drink the tea consciously. Pay close attention to how the tea allows you to feel and what food combinations do for you along the way.

How long until I will see results?

The amount of time it takes to see health (or weight loss) results from drinking Pu’er will vary. Some may see results in as little as a few days, while some may take weeks. No one can guarantee that each body will see results, but drinking the tea daily and as recommended will help to ensure the best potential. Weight loss and lowered cholesterol often comes in as little as 5 days.

    Loose Leaf Green Tea (4 boxes)

    Why is it awesome?

    Pu'er almost always comes compressed into different shapes, which is not always convenient and the ease and user-friendliness of loose tea is sometimes preferred. This is why we offer our premium Pu'er green tea loose leaf in a box. Grab a few leaves, throw in a mug or pot, and add hot water. This tea has been reviewed very well and is competition grade Pu'er tea, while still being very "amateur-proof" in that it can be boiled or cold brewed, and everything in-between. One can not brew this tea and make it taste bad, it is phenomenal.

    What’s the story on this tea?

    • 4x 28 gram (1 ounce)
    • A serving of 3 gram gives you 20 cups
    • Super easy to drink. Boiling hot or freezing cold water and everything in-between will make for a great cup of tea!
    • Picked from ancient tea trees, some planted before America was founded!
    • Processed by hand, not machinery
    • Not blended with other mountains, seasons, farmers, like most Pu’er is
    • Leaves are much larger than normal which gives a greater depth of flavor and allows for many more brews
    • From FDA registered family farm

    How long will it last?

    • If you don’t drink it all right away, it has no expiration date!
    • Our tea increases in taste and value over the years, similar to wine

    I have not tried this tea yet, but I do have some. I want to try it but I read that if you drink it at the wrong time you will gain weight and my goal is to drink it to lose weight. Somewhere else I read that it doesn’t matter when you drink it. Can you please tell me which is right?

      It is best to drink it after a meal at it helps clear your pallet and your body. It also helps to flush the oils and sugars from your body, so if you did that before you ate, you would feel more hungry.

    I have tried different puerh teas and, while Im not exactly sure its the tea, I do see results both in my weight and my appetite. I tend to feel cleaner after I drink it, but maybe thats just me?

    • NIcholas 12 months ago

      Hello Karen,

      Thank you for your comment. We like to think that the Pu’er is what helped, but we are glad to hear that things went well regardless. You are exactly right in noticing that you feel cleaner, maybe more refreshed, after drinking our tea.

      Thanks again,
      Nicholas @ Misty Peak
