To Truth About Okinawan Tea

Have you ever seen ads on the internet claiming they possess the 'real' Okinawan tea? I'm sure you have, and after reading this article you will have a very good reason to stay away from them.

It seems as if people on the internet will try to make money in any fashion possible. Some people just don't have the morals to care if they lie to people and rip them off. This is the case with anybody charging extraordinary amounts of money for Okinawan tea and try to claim that it's very rare.

won't name specific websites, but some of them claim Okinawan tea will reduce your weight line by a certain amount and that it is a "special" blend.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. All major teas such as white, green, oolong, and black tea come from one plant - the camellia senensis. The camellia senensis produces a tea leaf and depending on the amount of fermentation it receives, it is then labeled as one of those 4.

Because of how the fermentation interacts with the leaves they end up with slightly different properties, but none of them produce the amount of weight loss that these websites are saying they do.

Yes, all tea will help tremendously with things such as weight loss in small amounts, cardiovascular health, brain health, reducing illness, and many others. However, be wary of websites who claim these benefits will come in miraculous proportions.

The benefits come over a period of time after you've been drinking tea consistently. They do not come overnight, just as most people don't become rich overnight. It's foolish to think you can do something for a tiny period of time and produce extraordinary results. Patience is a virtue.

By the way, the people of Okinawa are among the longest living people on the planet and also drink the most tea per capita.

Coincidence? I don't think so.
