What Is TavaTea and Why Is It So Popular?
When you're trying to lose weight, so much time and effort goes into organising your diet, special meals, along with the aches and pains of prolonged heavy exercise and missing out on your favourite foods.
Tava Tea is different. For starters, drinking tea is hardly inconvenient or taking. If you already drink tea then this is going to be the easiest fat loss aid you've ever used.
That's a thing of the past with Tava Tea. It's so simple to use and see results.
- Tava Tea Wellness Blend Burns 2.5 Times MORE Of Your Calories Than Green Tea: Japan's University of Tokushima School of Medicine found in a new study that regular Wuyi Cliff Oolong tea drinkers experienced over TWICE the calorie-burning results of those who drank the same amount of Japanese green tea.
- Reduces The Fattening Effects Of The Carbs You Eat: Scientists at the Suntory Research Center in Osaka, Japan, have found that drinking Wuyi Cliff Oolong tea just 15 minutes before consuming carbohydrates, helps to lower the insulin spike you normally get after eating carbs. Because Insulin is the hormone responsible for storing your body's fat, when you eat too many carbs weight gain goes up due to the increase in insulin levels.
- Calms Your Mind & Body: Tava Tea Wellness Blend contains the amino acid L-theanine, which is responsible for boosting alpha brain wave activity and increasing the production of the calming neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin.
- Stop The Clock And Reverse The Signs of Aging: As you grow older, damaging "free radicals" accumulate in your body. A remarkable 50 percent reduction in free radicals, within just 15 days was observed in Wuyi Cliff Oolong tea drinkers by Dr. Kenichi Yanagimoto in a 2004 study.
"As the long-time Editor-in-Chief of Muscle Media magazine, I've extensively researched and studied the effects of various fat-loss agents, and Wu Long (Wuyi Cliff Oolong) is far and away the best there is!"

How Does TavaTea Work?
Tava Tea Wellness Blend is a unique blend between organically grown Sencha, Wuyi Cliff Oolong and Puerh species. This blend is not found anywhere else and is extremely effective for weight loss and increased health.
Not only that but we only use the highest quality whole leaves. No tea 'dust' or lower quality leaves are included.
Tava Tea Wellness Blend you'll notice a difference in how you look and feel, really quickly.
One of the main ingredients called polyphenols are reported to activate an enzyme which dissolves one of the most common form of fats in your body, called triglycerides. The tea reduced them by a massive 80% in rats in 2007 American study.
One of the active parts of the Polyphenols in Tava Tea Wellness Blend called, EGCG is a very powerful antioxidant and also responsible for increasing your metabolism and speeding up calorie burning.
Antioxidants defend your body against what are known as "free radicals". These damage your body and speed up the aging process.
They have been linked to causing cancer, Alzhiemers disease and various other degenerative diseases. EGCG is twice as powerful as resveratrol (One of the most powerful antioxidants) and far more powerful than the traditional antioxidant vitamins A, C and E.
Tava Tea is a weight loss product with a difference, in the fact that it is just that, a tea. It would be easy to change the tea you currently drink to Tava Tea without upsetting your daily schedule and benefit from its weight loss effects, without the need for taking pills or potions.
Tava Tea is actually a unique blend of 3 different organically grown teas, Sencha, Oolong and Pu-erh, all of which have been used in China for over 5000 years. These teas exert powerful healing effects but most importantly offer real help with your weight loss efforts in a convenient and natural way.
Studies have shown that regular use of Oolong tea helps to enhance fat metabolism, which obviously helps to control weight gain. In China, Pu-erh tea is used after a greasy or fatty meal as it assists with fat digestion along with easing the bloating after a heavy meal.
Sencha contains high levels of Catechin which is a polyphenol, a powerful antioxidant known to help destroy free radicals, which cause damage to the body over time..
So if you are looking for a simple and convenient way to help your body to cast off those extra pounds and you don’t want to use pills or shakes etc, this offers a great solution.

- How It Works
Green tea has been drunk in China for its health benefits for thousands of years. There are many different varieties and the 3 used in Tava Tea have been chosen for their weight loss boosting and general health benefits.
Tava Tea wellness blend works by burning extra calories, in fact it burns 2.5 times more calories than green tea. A study by Japan's University of Tokushima School of Medicine discovered that regular Oolong tea drinkers experienced over twice the calorie burning of drinking the same amount of Japanese green tea.
You’ll read a lot on Slimming+ regarding carbs causing insulin spikes and how too much insulin will stop your body burning stored fat and encourage fat storage, which you obviously need to avoid. Scientists at the Suntory Research Center in Osaka, Japan, found that drinking Oolong tea 15 minutes before eating carbs, lessens the insulin spike normally associated with eating carbs.
In a Taiwanese randomised controlled trial, 78 obese women who took 400mg of green tea extract three times a day for 12 weeks experienced significant reduction in LDL-cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and a simultaneous increase in levels of HDL-cholesterol, and the hormones adiponectin (promotes insulin sensitivity) and ghrelin (modulates hunger).
(Effect of green tea extract on obese women: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial. Clin Nutr. 2008 Jun;27(3):363-70).
A blind study was conducted in France several years ago with 500 hyperlipidemia patients (An advanced cholesterol condition, usually controlled with medication). Half of the controlled group consumed 3-4 cups of Pu'erh daily, the rest of the patients were given something else.
After 30-days the results showed drinking Pu'erh on a regular basis could significantly lower cholesterol.
A US team fed groups of genetically obese and lean mice a diet containing zero, 1%, or 2% green tea extract for six weeks. At the end of the study, the obese mice fed green tea extract weighed 23-25% less than obese mice fed the non-supplemented diet and the lean mice fed green tea extract weighed 11-20% less those on the non-supplemented diet.
Analysis revealed that drinking 1 - 2 cups of tea per day was associated with the greatest benefit on blood glucose levels; drinking more provided no further benefit. An increase of one cup per day was associated with a 70% lower likelihood of having diabetes (95% CI 41%-86%), after adjusting for confounding variables.
Panagiotakos DB, Lionis C, Zeimbekis A, Gelastopoulou K, Papairakleous N, Das UN, Polychronopoulos E. "Long-term tea intake is associated with reduced prevalence of (type 2) diabetes mellitus among elderly people from Mediterranean islands: MEDIS epidemiological study." Yonsei Med J. 2009 28;50(1):31-8.
Then of course there are the general health benefits of these special teas.
A study published in Antioxidants & Redox Signalling, found that test subjects consuming wu long had stronger immune systems and a reduced risk for infections and researchers from Japan's Shiga University of Medical Science found that drinking wu long each day helped to clear up skin problems within one month.
Pu-erh tea is often consumed by Chinese after a greasy or fatty meal. The fat digests faster and you experience far less bloating normally associated with a heavy meal.
Another great benefit of this tea is that it can calm your mind and body thanks to the fact it contains the amino acid L-theanine. This amino is responsible for boosting alpha brain wave activity and increasing the production of the calming neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin.
This is useful as being on a diet can be stressful and anything that can ease that has got to be a good thing.
- Suggested Use
Tava Tea's Wellness blend Slimming Tea is made from only the finest quality, organic Oolong, Wu Long and Sencha teas.
You’ll experience all the benefits of all three of these ancient, healing teas in each mouth-watering cupful. 100% organic!
And you can’t get this triple blend anywhere else.
We’re sure you’ll agree what amazing value our tea is too. With 20 unique pyramid bags in each month's supply, you’ll benefit from at least 60 full pots of tea (approx 8 cups per pot).
Now that really is astonishing value for money.
And it’s so easy to prepare:
- Pour 600-700ml (3-4 cups) of fresh boiled water into a teapot.
- Wait until the water is cooled to about 75-80 degrees Celsius
- Let the tea steep for 3-4 minutes for the first infusion. The colour of the tea should be warm golden brownish. You’re now ready to drink your tea.
- Don’t throw away the teabag, you’ve only used it once, and you have not released all the flavors and healthy anti-oxidants yet! Make sure that the teabag is not kept in water, as the leafs will continue to release its flavors, which we don’t want until the second steeping
- For the second infusion, boil 500-600ml (2-3 cups) of water and pour this into a teapot.
- Again, wait for the water to be cooled to about 75-80 degrees celcius.
Let the tea steep for 6-7 minutes for the second infusion. The colour will be about the same as the first infusion, maybe a little bit lighter. This second steeping releases different tea oils and anti-oxidants , leading to a different taste of the tea. You’re not ready for your second tea session.

Wuyi Cliff Oolong (Wu Long)
It’s not any old Oolong in our Tava Tea Wellness Blend... but you’ll be pleased to hear that the Cliff variant we use is one of the most treasured and expensive of the Wuyi family.
Many of the health benefits of Wuyi Cliff Oolong tea are similar to those of green tea. Wuyi Cliff Oolong tea is one of the healthiest beverage you can enjoy as it also contains the polyphenols that act as antioxidants against free radicals in the body
Benefits of Wuyi Cliff Oolong (Wu Long):
Pu-erh (also known as Puerh or Pu er)
Possessing many of the antioxidant qualities found in green tea, black tea and Wuyi Cliff Oolong tea. Puerh tea contains polyphenols that attack free radicals in your body to help ensure protection against a host of diseases.
Benefits of Pu-erh:
Sencha has high levels of Catechin, a type of polyphenol and a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants destroy free radicals, which can damage the body at the cellular level and make it far more susceptible to cancer, heart disease, and other degenerative diseases.
Although there are various kinds of polyphenols, catechins are the strongest. The most powerful catechin, Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg), is abundant in green tea.
Catechin has also been found to be anti-bacterial and to lower the risk of heart disease. Catechin fights the free radicals that help arterial build up. Catechin also stops the platelets from forming clots which can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, thereby reducing stress.
You've won me over!
So glad you decided to change back to 30 tea bags instead of just 20! And the new packaging is much nicer... I love this tea but was extremely annoyed when you suddenly changed the pack before. Now you have won me over back to 5 star product Thanks
expensive but worth it
Thought the tea seemed quite expensive to say you can buy green tea for as little as a few pound at the supermarkets but none have helped me lose weight. Tried Tava tea after being recommended by a friend and I am thrilled with the product. I drink about 3 cups a day one with each of my meals. 1 tea bag usually makes all 3 cups. I've lost 8lbs so far and about to order my next pack! defo recommended x

nicest tasting and best tea
I have tried quite a few competitor weight loss teas and this product is by far the nicest tasting and best tea I have tried! I haven't been drinking it long enough to notice any weight loss effects, but it does give me a nice kick of energy in the mornings.
Highest Quality Tea!
This is the highest quality tea I have ever tasted! Silk tea bags and top grade tea. I've given it 4 stars because the packaging on the outside of the product lets it down when the tea on the inside is the best.
Packaging Could Be Better - But GREAT Product
I must admit after ordering Tava tea I was a little bit disappointed when it arrived because the packaging of the product wasn't very good. But I decided to still open up the product and give it a try. What I can say is they certainly haven't held back on the quality of tea! It comes in silk tea bags and you can see and taste the quality of the tea. Not sure on the weight loss results because haven't been drinking it long enough - but regardless I will definitely order this product again.
- Rychelle Jackson
This supplement is great compare to others! Not the same other slimming tea or supplements that contains chemicals that can affects our health,like our kidney. This Tava Tea is all natural and really effective on losing weight by removing toxic materials in our body. You should try it to see the real result.
Should be called SUPER Weight Loss Tea!
I've been a loyal tava tea drinker for the past 2 years so I thought it would only be fair if I did a review. I've tried lots of different tea blends and tava in my opinion is the best! I drink the weight loss blend in the mornings and the jasmine blend in the evening. Keep up the good work tava!
It works for me
I'd recommend Tava because unlike other diet teas that I have tried it: Tastes good is easy on your stomach Simple to brew Seems to work!
My fat loss secret :)
Tava tea is my fat loss secret! I started drinking 3 - 5 cups per day instead of regular tea and the weight has dropped off from evry bit of my body. Even the stubborn bits on my inner arms and thighs. Seriously people should spread the word about this great product.
I love TAVA! Dropped from size 14 to size 12 in 3 weeks!
Over the past year I put on quite a bit of weight. I went from a size 10-12 to a size 14. I started to get really depressed when some of my clothes didn't fit me anymore. One of my friends recommended me this slimming tea. After taking TAVA Tea for about a week I noticed a big difference! It stopped me from bloating after meals and I felt more healthy in general. I started to combine some of the diet advice from Slimming.com and in just 3 weeks I dropped back down to size 12. The other positive is that the tea taste great! I decided to write this review because I would recommend TAVA to anyone looking to shed a few pounds :)

Part of my fool proof weight loss plan
At the beginning of this year I decided to take my health seriously, and started out on a number of ventures. Eating better, going to the gym and taking a regular detox drink (which is where TavaTea comes in). I feel so much better these days. My energy levels have definitely increased and I’m much more sociable than I was last year. My skin is generally softer and people have noticed a definite change in the way I carry myself these days.
A lovely surprise :)
TavaTea has been such a lovely surprise. Very refreshing and enjoyable drink, and the fact that it has been linked to improving you health and weight loss is a huge bonus. The tea itself just screams quality, and is a nice alternative to offer people who come round to visit. Great little buy.
Hmmm it was ok.
It tasted better than most of the weight loss and herbal teas I have tried. Not sure it really helped with my weight loss though?

Fantastic weight loss tea
I’ve been drinking TavaTea since it came out and let me tell you, its fantastic. My weight loss has been steady, but it’s most definitely been dropping. Lost about a stone in 2-3 months, and all I did was switch my tea bags! You can try and kill yourself in the gym, or eat like a rabbit, but you can’t deny that losing weight by drinking a different blend of tea is a great option for many of us. Do yourself a favour and pick up a package now, because if you don’t start to day, when will you?
