Tie Luo Han, all but unknown abroad, is the cultivar responsible for one of the four most famous yan cha, the great "rock teas" grown on cliffs in the Wuyi Shan area of Northern Fujian, the Chinese province on the southeastern coast facing Taiwan.

Luo Han is derived from an ancient Buddhist Sanskrit term, "Arahant" which was earlier derived from “Arihan” (those who subdue or attain victory over foes). Tie Luo Han might be fancifully translated "Iron Apostle" or "Iron Warrior Monk" being the Chinese for "arhat" or "bodhisattva," and "iron" describing the tea's darkish appearance.

The tea bush was first found in a cave (Gui Dong or Ghost Cave) in Hui Yuan Yan, one of the ninety-nine cliffs of Mount Wu Yi.

Tie Luo Han is one of the 4 Famous Firs of Wu Yi Oolong Teas and also believed to be the earliest Wu Yi tea with history records dating back to Song Dynasty. Legend tells that this tea was created by a powerful warrior monk with golden-bronze skin, hence the name Tie Luo Han, which means "Iron Warrior Monk".

Wu Yi Tea's Natural Anti-Aging Process

Oolong tea has a substance called Polyphenol, which is a natural antioxidant that comes in the tea. Many signs of aging include dark spots, wrinkled skin, roughness and related blemishes-people have reported a decrease of these symptoms with regular drinking of wu long tea. Polyphenols are powerful compounds that have antioxidant abilities that have been reported to reversed environmental effects of aging. While it won't literally make you stop aging, it can reverse it's toll or slow the process. A polyphenal that aids in this process is called Catechins. It destroys free radicals in your body that increases aging.

Free radicals are caused by things like pollution, smoke, eating, drugs, and even sunlight exposure. Drinking wu yi tea regularly can help reverse the effect from these environmental factors.

Another Polyphenol in Oolong tea is called EGCG, which stands fro Epigallocatenchin gallete. It's like vitamin C or E but much more strong. This also aids in destroying free radicals throughout the entire body. Other antioxidants in the tea include thearubigin and theaflavin that aid in the oxidization process.

Typically, a cup of authentic wu yi tea hs between 20 and 40 mg of polyphenols. This is more than most vegitabls that are considered high on antioxidants. There are a few varieties of Oolong tea, but most of them have the same health and weight loss benefits that aid in preventing or reversing aging.

Wu Yi Tea Weight Loss

If you're looking for a completely natural, safe way to lose weight, you should consider drinking Wu-Yi tea. Many people from China and other Asian countries have been using the tea for weight management and other health benefits for centuries. Drinking the tea rarely does little to help, but drinking it regularly throughout the day can have a dramatic effect on your health and weight.

How it works is this: a substance called Polyphenol is in wu yi tea. What this substance does it activate an enzyme that dissolves triglycerides. All oolong tea has this, as well as green and black tea. However, Oolong tea has a higher dose of it to increase weight loss more than green tea. The result is weight loss and a boosted metabolism.

A 2003 study was published in the Journal of Medical investigation. it was titled "Oolong Tea Increases Energy Metabolism in Japanese Females." The study showed that women who drank wu yi tea had a higher rate of weight loss. In the study there was a group of 120 Japanese woman who drank oolong tea for six weeks. Another group drank green tea and another group drank water. The study found that women who drank wu yi tea directly after a meal had 10% more energy. Green tea increases energy by 4% and water did not increase energy at all.

So you're probably wondering... how much weight can you lose by drinking Wu Yi Tea?

That depends on your physical build, how much you drink the tea, how much you eat, and a score of other factors. However, many people report losing between 10 and 20 pounds by drinking 3 to 4 cups a day. Regardless of all the factors, it is evident that wu yi tea will help you in your weight loss endeavors.

That being said, the tea has not been approved by the FDA for weight loss; that does not mean, however, that its ineffective. Studies have shown a correlation between wu yi oolong tea consumption and an increased metabolism and weight loss. It's been part of the Chinese culture for centuries.

    This tea is actually pretty decent for the price, it does have a similar character to the da hon pao. I definitely appreciate the deeper taste of wuyi rock teas. (Posted on 1/31/2014)

    A very balanced, good-tasting oolong tea. The liquor is bright amber, and there’s a pleasing touch of smokiness and a“floral "yan cha" flavor. Yes, you can definitely detect “"Yan Yun" in the aftertaste. (Posted on 1/1/1970)

    I didn’t expect Tie Luo Han is this kind of more floral oolong. I prefer a stonger, nutty, roast flavor than this. It is too light for me. (Posted on 1/1/1970)
