I found some Oolong tea and was astonished that it was only .65/box. I don’t know how Sea Dyke compares to famous online brands such as Wu-Long but I thought I’d give it a whirl as it states on the box it’s Fujian Oolong Tea.
I wrote a few weeks ago about weight loss benefits of wulong tea. After a bit of research, I found out Wulong and Oolong are interchangeable and I also found that many online sites offer this tea with glowing reviews but a high price tag.
I’d checked several organic spots in my town for Wulong or Oolong but was disappointed but then found in my local grocer’s international section stacks of oolong, jasmine and green tea. The Sea Dyke brand is a yellow box that comes with 20 tea bags and I was shocked that it was so cheap so I bought three boxes (afraid it would be wonderful and everyone would buy it out and then the price would skyrocket..which could still happen)
I haven’t found many online reviews about Sea Dyke tea for health and weight loss but here’s my experience so far:
tI drink 1-2 cups each afternoon black with a spoonful of sugar (I know sugar is bad and I’m going to wean myself off it slowly). It smells like hashish. Sorry but it does and it tastes a bit like it too but it’s quite refreshing and woodsy. It is growing on me. I think I like White Tea a bit better but I’m going to stick with it.
A week later I’m down 2lbs on the scale. I don’t know if oolong really is helping me slim down or not but I haven’t eaten the best this week so I was surprised at the scale. I have put on a few winter pounds so I am planning to buckle down and get back to my ideal weight by the time the snow melts. I have upped my water intake and exercised mildly two days in a row with some sit-ups and Pilates. I am planning to continue to drink my oolong tea each afternoon and am planning to improve my eating and excercise levels in the coming weeks so I’ll post an update in a few weeks and let you know how it turns out.
I’m not sure if the tea is going to help me or my lifestyle changes so I can’t be entirely sure but know that oolong / wulong contains plenty of antioxidants and health benefits and is good for my skin as well as digestion so I’m happy to say that so far I’m more than pleased with my minimal investment. I’d love to hear from anyone who’d like to compare this tea against any other brands.
