I checked and couldn't find anything posted on this tea. Has anyone heard anything about it and whether it has any adverse affect on diabetics? Or is this just another diet rip off?

I've never heard of it until you posted. After reading the posts, especially the one about swelling up, I think I will pass on this one.

From what I understand it's china oolong tea, but some branded nonsense. It's a weird tea, I guess an acquired taste, because it's oxidized and/or fermented. I happen to like it, does nothing for my numbers though. Never realized it was being touted as some sort of cure or whatever. You can by oolong in bags or loose leaf for not a lot of money from reputable tea companies. Twinings for example (www.twinings.com), $2.99 for 20 bags.

I was wondering if it wasn't the tea that has been touted from China. Thanks for that info. If you are using it, make sure it doesn't have lead in it, like everything seems to have from China,;-))

I receive ads every day in my junk mail about this tea. I refuse to think about these so call cures. That is something no diabetic wants to get stuck with.Scams.

I see it advertised all the time on the Live Strong website, but it sounds like another snake oil remedy to me. I went thru a period where I was trying a lot of these kinds of things. They just wanted to sell me hope in a bottle at a very high price. Pardon my pun, but not my cup of tea.

I tried it and it made me swell up .and get sick to my stomack but every-one is different after the free trial you get 1 months (30) supply.after that every month you get stuck with a $54.oo a mouth bill they send you a month supply but only 14 tea bags are free so. you end up paying for the rest if you don't ship them back plus s/h are at your expence make sure you have them tracked or you will pay for them anyway.It happened to me.

Thanks for the input. I thought it was probably a scam, but I wanted to see if anyone here had had an experience with them. I still believe that if you want to lose weight you have to work at it and make it a part of your life. Besides I don't like tea. It tends to cause you to have depression. Thanks again.
