Drinking tea, particularly certain types of tea, such as our premium Woojeon green tea, can be part of a weight management strategy for some individuals, but it's not a magic solution for weight loss on its own. Weight loss primarily depends on maintaining a calorie deficit, where you consume fewer calories than you expend. Tea can potentially aid in weight management through several mechanisms and as we know, some of us need a little help sometimes:

Caffeine: Many types of tea, such as green tea and black tea, contain caffeine, which can boost metabolism and increase energy expenditure temporarily. This may help you burn more calories.

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG): Green tea, in particular, contains EGCG, a type of catechin that has been associated with potential fat-burning effects and improved metabolism. However, the effects are generally modest.

Appetite suppression: Some people find that drinking herbal teas like peppermint or ginger tea can help curb appetite and reduce the likelihood of overeating.

• Hydration: Drinking non-caloric beverages like tea can help with overall hydration, and staying adequately hydrated can support your metabolism and overall health.

• Replacing high-calorie beverages: If you often consume high-calorie beverages like sugary sodas or creamy coffee drinks, switching to calorie-free or low-calorie teas can reduce your overall calorie intake, which can help with weight management. Our sparkling teas are perfect when you want a sophisticated low sugar, non-alc alternate!

Satiety: The act of sipping on hot or iced tea can provide a feeling of fullness and satisfaction, which might help reduce the urge to snack between meals.

It's essential to remember that while tea can be a helpful component of a weight loss plan, it should be combined with a balanced diet and regular physical activity for the best results.

Also, individual responses to tea can vary. Some people may experience noticeable benefits, while others may not see significant changes. Moreover, it's essential to avoid adding excessive amounts of sugar or high-calorie additives to your tea, as this can negate its potential benefits and contribute to weight gain.

We recommend drinking your tea without adding anything, "go naked" to get the most out of the natural flavours and health benefits in premium leaf tea.

Always consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian before making significant changes to your diet or weight loss plan to ensure it is safe and suitable for your specific needs and health conditions.
