What if drinking tea could help you shed weight and keep off the pounds? Well, that’s the unspoken premise behind Pu-Erh Trim, a special tea blend by Sekaya.
Pu-Erh Trim is made with USDA certified organic Pu’erh leaves (where it gets its name), which have long been valued in ancient Chinese practices for its benefits. One of which, of course, is weight loss. A study found that drinking Pu’er tea could lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar levels, and apparently, help in metabolizing fat, too. The caffeine present triggers hormones that are responsible for converting fat cells into energy. Which, as a result, prevents the body from storing fat. Additionally, there’s Hollywood buzz that Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham rely on Pu’erh to lose weight. And if their svelte figures are any indication of the tea’s effectivity, it really works!
With this in mind, it’s important to know when to drink Pu’erh tea—or in this case, Pu-Erh Trim. According to customary belief, the best time to enjoy a cup is one hour after a meal. That way, it can aid in the body in flushing out the unwanted, hard-to-digest fats you’ve just eaten. Conversely, if you drink it before meals, it’s said to cause the opposite effect. Because it helps in eliminating fat, it can actually increase your appetite and thus, cause you to eat more.

Curious? Us, too. So, naturally, we had to make ourselves a cup of Pu-Erh Trim and give it a little taste. Our thoughts, below!

THE TASTE

Pu-Erh Trim has a woodsy aroma that is noticeably more pungent when submerged in boiling water. This is also reflected in the taste: it’s pleasantly bitter and earthy, and has more of a kick than green and black teas we’re used to.

THE EFFECT

After an hour of having food, we took a cup of Pu-Erh Trim. And, immediately, the effects it promised were already evident. We were not sluggish after eating, like we usually are, and it helped tide us over until the next meal.

THE VERDICT

Like any weight loss-promoting product, it would take some time to shed any pounds on the Pu-Erh Trim. With this in mind, it’s important to note that it isn’t one of those “miracle” products you see on TV infomercials. Rather, it’s a healthy, natural way to help you shed pounds. Of course, it would have to be paired with a healthy diet and exercise to see any results. But when we drank it, certain things were clear: it helped keep us full and stave away lethargy. Plus, it tastes just so good!
