This is a question for the tea drinkers. I've started drinking black tea and oolong tea for several weeks now and have noticed my sugars dropping. Anyone else experience this that drinks tea?

I have started drinking fenugreek seed tea by Alvita and it has done a little to lower my sugar count but thanks for the advice of the oolong tea I will try it. I have been recently diagnosed with diabetes and I will love to learn a lot about how to drop my sugar count.

different bodies react to different items. If it works for you, great, keep it up. I have been a tea drinker for the last 12 years. It works for me too.

I drink a lot of decaf black tea, but I have never heard of Oolong Tea....what is that? I am always looking for something to help my control.

Oolong tea is mild in flavor and has a different oxidation process when harvested compared to other teas. The flavor isn't as strong as black tea but stronger then green tea. It is often served in Chinese restaurants, but that is not the decaf. I get the decaf form and add cinnamon to it before I call it a night. This is something new I'm trying to see if it makes a difference in my blood sugar levels at night. I also drink this in the morning before going to work, my numbers dropped a little. I'm not sure if it is from the tea, or possibly a combination of things. If you do try it let me know how it works for you. ;o)

I just found some Oolong Tea that is by STASH Tea Co. They are one of my favorite tea makers. It is Chocolate Mint, and I can't wait for it to cool off down here so I can have a warm cup of it. I also picked up a rasberry one as well.
