Kou Tea Review
What You Should Know
Kou Tea is a combination of green, white, oolong and pu-erh teas into one tea bag. The dieter steeps the tea according to the package directions and drinks it twice a day. We are huge fans of green tea and we think everyone could benefit from drinking green tea throughout the day, but paying nearly $35 for a box of tea bags is asking the dieter a lot. With the clinical support for green, white and oolong tea there is little reason to leave the grocery store for your diet support. You will pay a mere fraction of the Kou Tea price, but you will find it difficult to locate a pu-erh tea bag.
List of Ingredients
- Green Tea
- Oolong Tea
- Pu-Erh Tea
- White Tea
Green tea is one of the ingredients we are constantly suggesting to our followers. Clinical research dates back more than two decades with a long list of potential benefits. Green tea is a strong antioxidant and it contains EGCG, which supports and promotes metabolism without the spark of caffeine. Caffeine is found in some green tea products, but the caffeine is not needed for natural metabolism support. White tea and oolong tea just reinforce the health benefits and bring new flavor to Kou Tea.
Pu-erh tea, often referred to as black tea, is not the same as black teas you find in the local grocery store. Animal studies have shown some positive weight loss results, but the results have not been mimicked in humans.
- Ingredients are listed on the official Kou Tea website.
- Green tea is clinically proven to support overall health.
- Green tea contains EGCG which promotes weight loss on a metabolic level.
- Likely contains a bit of caffeine, though not mentioned in the product description.
- The company suggests adding honey for sweetness – that adds calories.
- The product is overpriced.
We love the fact that Kou Tea includes four types of tea, but the company forgot to tell dieters just how much tea is included. For the $35 a box price, dieters can stock up on lots of green, white and oolong tea at the local grocery store, so we suspect this is just an overpriced product that claims to promote weight loss with the addition of pu-erh tea. With the clinical support for the other three teas and the price of these teas at your local store, we believe skipping the pu-erh tea will not substantially affect results.
