What is Wuyi tea? This latest craze you see everywhere about a "Wuyi Tea", being promoted as a 4,000 year old ancient Chinese secret that will help you lose weight - well, that's just selling you a mountain's name!
Not sure if that last sentence made much sense. What I mean is that they're selling the idea that "Wu Yi Tea" is some ancient Chinese tea, but in fact, it's simply the name of the mountain (Wu Yi) where some of the most famous Chinese tea are grown. Don't buy in to the hype! In fact, if you read carefully on the different websites selling the so called "Wuyi Tea", you'll see that it is simply one of the many varieties of Oolong tea (Wulong). This also brings into question whether the Wu Yi tea sold are actually sourced from the Wu Yi Mountain. Who knows?
