When should you drink oolong tea?
The stuff that we have told you far sure makes oolong tea sound like some magical potion from a mythical land. We know that some of you are so tempted by the prospect that you don’t want to do anything but gulp gallons of it in a day. Hold onto your horses, there is plenty more that you still don’t know! Too much of anything can never be good, and oolong tea is no exception to this rule. We will answer the “how much is safe” query in a minute. For now, we want to focus on the permissibility angle. We mean to say, there can be certain occasions during a day only, when drinking oolong tea makes sense, right?
So, when should you drink oolong tea? A cup in the morning is fine by us, we have got nothing against it. But it is the people who drink a cup of oolong tea during a meal who frustrate us. See, that’s not the idea behind oolong tea, at all. The logic behind sipping this tea is to aid your metabolism. What’s the point of guzzling down something so nice during, say a very greasy meal? No, oolong tea is not a drink to be had during a meal. If anything, abstinence from eating for at least 20 minutes must be observed before you touch a cup of this fine tea.
How much oolong tea should you drink?
We now come to the point around which this whole discussion has been orchestrated. How much oolong tea is OK? Well, it is best to exercise moderation if this is your first time sipping the drink. And when we say moderation, we are talking about no more than 2-3 cups of oolong tea per day. Yes, we know that you cannot wait to get rid of the few extra pounds that have been haunting you for the last few months. But galloping a gallon of this stuff ain’t going to help you! If anything, it will just complicate matters. You see, too much oolong tea can be detrimental to your body. In case you develop an obsession with oolong tea, you are likely to suffer from anxiety, dehydration, insomnia, depression. If things get bad, you could suffer from kidney stones and urinary problems as well. So, when we say observe moderation, please don’t take this request lightly, we are quite serious here!
When should you not drink oolong tea?
It is not a drink for all occasions! There are going to be moments when you will have to do without oolong tea. Firstly, we realize that we have given you the green light for drinking oolong tea in the morning. But we are begging you to not drink it on an empty stomach. It is not going to do anything magical for your body, even though it looks cool for the optics! If anything, drinking oolong tea on an empty stomach can lead to feelings of nausea and a terrible stomach ache.
If drinking it too early on an empty stomach doesn’t make any sense, drinking it too late should be deemed illogical as well, right? And yes, that is the case. The reason for this ban is that drinking the oolong tea too late can interfere with your sleep patterns. Surely, you don’t want to become an insomniac? Also, oolong tea is not a great choice for a pregnant lady. The rationale behind this ban is devised from the generalization that caffeine is not good for the unborn child.
How to prepare oolong tea for weight loss?

The coolest bit about oolong tea is that it can be enjoyed in more than one way. We talk about different methods of preparation of oolong tea briefly in this last section of the discussion. Consider this as a farewell gift!
The first method is pretty simple really. All that you have to do is boil one teaspoon of oolong tea in a cup of water for a mere five minutes. All that is left for you to do is strain the tea and enjoy it! But if this sounds too mundane to you, you can add a dash of lemon juice in the pot as well. Some people go as far as sipping it with a bit of cinnamon in the drink, not sure if that’s your cup of tea or not!
