11 Teas That Are Better Than One Hour at the Gym

10. Puerh tea


The town of Pu-erh in the province of Yunnan gave its name to a special kind of tea called Puerh. Puerh tea is a type of Chinese black tea. It is fermented by good bacteria and sun-dried primary tea, which causes a chemical reaction. It develops a soothing, earthy smell over time, and most people like to drink it after a meal. The scent gets stronger the longer it sits.

Studies with animals and people showed that Puerh tea could help people lose weight. Puerh tea slows down the process of making fatty acids. This slows down the process of lipogenesis, which turns fat into energy right after you eat. This stops fat from building up and keeps the weight from going up.
