What You Should Know
Original Slim Tea claims a long history of helping dieters lose weight. The single ingredient formula is supposed to help melt away fat when taken with a balanced diet.

List of Ingredients
Hand-picked rare species of Chinese Oolong Tea leaves.
Hobe Labs includes only one ingredient in Original Slim Tea. Chinese Oolong Tea is described as having a taste between green tea and black tea. While there are some very interesting stories linked to the possible history and discovery of oolong tea, none of the information would lead the dieter to believe drinking the tea could increase weight loss. Oolong tea has some characteristics of green tea but does not have the backing of more than a decade of clinical trials to support its use in weight loss.
Hobe Labs produces other tea varieties that could fall into the weight loss category far more easily than Original Slim Tea. Ultra Slim Teas and Thermo Slim Teas both contain ingredients to either cleanse the intestinal system or stimulate thermogenesis. Original Slim Tea is nothing more than tea.
Leaving the ingredient list open to interpretation may leave the dieter with an untrustworthy feeling. Oolong tea may have some of the characteristic of green tea, but presents with less catechins. Polyphenol, caffeine and teaflavin tearubigin. It is the polyphenols that are supposed to provide the benefit of antioxidants to the body. Antioxidants can fight off free radical damage, but this effect has little to do with weight loss, either. Original Slim Tea is 99.9% caffeine free and retails for $8.49 per box of 24 tea bags.

Dieters who want to lose weight with the aid of green tea could find a cheaper alternative to Original Slim Tea. While the price is comparable to other slim teas, the other brands and formulas tend to have more effective ingredients than Original Slim Tea. The dieter is paying for one tea leaf in Original Slim Tea and nothing more. Hobe Labs does offer other varieties of slim tea that may be more effective than Original Slim Tea. Original Slim Tea is also available in a variety of flavors to make drinking the tea more enjoyable.
