I’m coming to Cha from Tokyo, Japan.
Currently: In an airport lounge, the Japanese are eating noodles, drinking roasted green tea, and listening to elevator music, but I think this wifi is such a big life. For me, life without wifi is like life without sun.
When I went to China I knew that the wifi stitch would be kind of annoying but I didn’t know I would stay out of American sites.
Yes What happened.
It was very strange. We were reaching normal US sites and then BAM !! One day he did not work.
So. I’m really working. It was a grand total for me. I have a habit of returning about 400 emails per day, messing around on social media, blogging, and doing research so it just seemed a strange feeling to disconnect.
I know I said that I wasn’t doing much work in Asia, but I lied. Yes! I worked all over Hong Kong / Thailand. But maybe there was literally no internet good for my journey?
I’m back though!
Ok so i know, i know another post about tea? How much can you drink a tea? I mean? I completely understand that you are tea-ed, but I am talking about whether about me, bear with me, mkay?
I would not have posted a full dedicated blog for this specific tea unless it was good. And it is.
So here’s the story: Michael and I went to taste tea.
You know, like tasting wine? But tasting tea. Apparently it is very common in China.
(If you follow me on Snapchat, you saw a peek inside the experience).
Anyway, at the time of tea tasting, we sampled tea. Chinese nuts know their tea. Tea is a full-grown deal and I was loving it. Tea, tea, tea, and more tea.
The girl who helped us told us about puer tea. His eyes lit up while talking about this special tea.
He told that all his girlfriends drank tea twice a day, after meals to stay slim. The girl told about this tea how everyone drinks in China for its weight loss properties.
I was excited to share because obviously this is a natural way to keep the weight off. And the tea tastes unprecedented (I like the strange taste).
So what would i do? A lab became a rat for the rest of the trip.
I drank tea twice a day.
By having just one for the team, friends.
And just to say: to keep it very regularly. I describe Pu’erh tea as chia seeds on steroids / crack. AKA does not drink tea before a hot date night. And since I finally got a damn internet connection, I was able to do research. here are the details:
According to this source, “Pu-erh tea (also spelled Puer) is a type of healthy drink, which not only has a long history of Chinese tea, but it can help us lose fat and lose weight.” Cooked tea can keep the stomach fit and warm it up, while fresh tea has a better effect on weight loss than cooked tea, due to its strong taste.
Pu-erh tea has been known as a great weight loss tea for many years because it helps us burn fat and shed pounds, as well as a delicious sweet and dark earthy flavor. Drinking pu-erh tea at the right time will help your body shed unwanted pounds to help metabolize fat. If you drink pu-er at the wrong time, it is said that it will actually cause weight gain instead of you. For weight loss goals, the best time to drink a cup of pu-erh tea is one hour after a meal, so that pu-arah tea can remove excess fat and eliminate unwanted and hard-to-digest fat from your body. Could help. However, if you drink pu-erh half an hour before eating, it will cause the opposite effect and it can cause you to gain weight because when you drink pu-er tea before meals it clears fat deposits. Any residue in your body and stomach so that it actually increases your appetite, so you can eat more.
Ideally, to lose the most weight using Pu-Erh tea, you should drink Pu-Erh tea without including any other Chinese tea or drink in your diet other than Pu-Erh tea. If you do this then the effects of weight loss will be most noticeable. ”

The best thing? I found REL PU-ARH tea online. So this is how I am buying my Pu’erh in the states.
By the way, call me someone and say “What are you doing?” And I carelessly all “Oh nothing, just drinking my puer” with a fully erected pinky. It’s kind of chic, isn’t it?
Ok, now it’s time to win my email inbox (FML) … talk soon, Lauryn xx
Skin Confidential Tees Time
The history of Pu’erh tea is also the history of several Pu’erh teas. It was first introduced in the ancient China, and it is now a main ingredient in many health drinks, including those created by Feng Shui masters. In the past, people who used the tea as a tea favored the black color, which gave it its name. Later on, people were introduced to the more fragrant red tea, which is believed to be more beneficial to health. As time passed, the green tea began to replace the original black teas, which are still widely available.
One of the main benefits of the tea is that it is believed to help with digestion and purification. The tea leaves contain catechins that have been shown to help with these functions, as they aid in the production of bile acids and cholesterol. The teas leaves can also help with the reduction of excess fluid in the body, as it is said to have a cleansing effect. When used as a tea, the tea leaves are also said to increase sexual desire and increase libido.
Another one of the tea benefits is its antibacterial effect. When tea leaves are fermented, the bacteria present in them will attack yeast and bacteria. This can be useful in preventing yeast infections from forming. Some studies have also shown that tea leaves may promote the normal functioning of the immune system. This helps the body fight off allergies and other problems that can develop over time. Because the tea contains antioxidants, they are able to help protect the body against free radical damage. It is believed that a combination of tea leaves and other teas may provide greater health benefits than a single type of tea.
