E L I X I R…..O F…..L I F E….? ? ? ? ( Yet …One….More….Testamonial …! )
Well, last year I was getting pretty desperate. I had somehow managed to lose 40 pounds….by drinking only regular tea, instant coffee, and home-made lemonade, and eating only Bird’s Eye Vegetables and turkey. (In fact, I have invented the “Turkey Diet”! It’s very simple: Eat Turkey, Fall Asleep (from the tryptophan!)…..and if you fall asleep, you can’t eat, you see. A variation, I guess, on the “Hollywood Diet”, which can be used only on weekends….because most people need to stay awake during the week to go to work!) Anyway, this diet worked for me….but it was pretty boring….took most of my free time away, and….turkey is expernsive! I gradually stopped this diet, and gradually got back 20 of those 40 pounds. I looked desperately for another way to lose weight….but drinking tea to do it just didn’t logical….
However, no other method presented itself that was as inexpensive as drinking tea….and after all that expensive (but delicious!), turkey, it seemd a good way to go. Now, this particular tea itself IS quite expensive — $43 for 4 ounces, (on sale….ouch!)….but the 4 ounces of lose tea would make at least 60 6 ounce cups, (360 ounces…and I’d of course be adding my own water and sweetener)….so I figured, why not? (Well…because of the possible bad taste, that’s why not. I’ve tried herbal teas in the past, and — with the delicious exception of Jasmine Tea — thoroughly disliked each one.) But even so, I decided to risk it…I’ve tasted far worse things than herbal tea, after all….
So, about a year ago, I sent away for it.
When the Wu-Long tea arrived, (in a lovely little transparent green plastic bag, lined with aluminum foil, giving the impression of a crushed green diamond), I made it and drank it. Hmmm, (or rather, “Mmmm!”) Not bad tasting at all! It tasted like the best black tea…the kind, (other than Jasmine), that I like the best. But,,,,as the tea was SO expensive, I decided not to drink it too often….
As the owner of a “healthy refrigerator”, (one LOADED with vitamins, which I take only in emergencies, because I can’t afford to keep buying them), I now had this “healthy tea”, which I put in the refrigerator to keep it fresh), to sort of keep the vitamins company! I did throughly read the literature that came with the tea, however….and noticed that many people had praised the MEDICINAL qualities of this tea, along with it’s weight-loss abilities. Hmmm…. I decided that I had happily gotten more than I bargained for….a weight-loss tea AND one which helpoed with other health problems. Nice to get such a bargain — but, at $43 for 4 ounces of lose tea, it was still quite expensive. And so, after that first cup, I restrained myself from drinking it, for quite some time…..
Actually, I didn’t drink another cup until about two weeks ago! I was beginning to feel as if the minor cut I had gotten the week before had somehow let an infection in, (though the cut itself didn’t look infected.)
Anyway, I was beginning to feel very, Very, VERY w….e….a…k….. Two years ago, in fact, I was hospitalized with an infection….the very same infection that killed my mother the month before! My mother, in the hospital, had said that she “felt like a vegetable”, and, having gotten the same infection, I knew how accurate that description really was: I was SO weak, then, in fact, I had had trouble raising my arms above my head! And now I felt it was starting to happen again! My first thought was to call 911. But my second thought was, strangely, concentrated on those glowing testimonials I had read from other customers who had used Wu-Long tea. I figured I’d try to make myself a cup….if the tea didn’t work, I could always call 911…. After all, though I felt very weak, I didn’t feel totally paralzyed….yet, anyway. But I knew I had to make and drink that tea fast…..before total weakness engulfed me. Did I feel up to doing so? Yes….I F…took my time, I F…I was very careful, and…I F.. I stayed very near the telephone as I made the tea….just in case….
I managed to make myself the cup of tea….to wait for it to cool down a bit….and to drink it. Within an hour, the feeling of weakness had left me! And, as of this writing….taking place a full two weeks later….the weakness, (and presumably the infection), have not come back!
(OH, IF ONLY I HAD HAD THE COURAGE TO BUY THIS TEA ..T W O.. YEARS AGO, AND GIVE IT TO MY WONDERFUL MOTHER!!!!!!)
Now, I’m not saying this tea will work miracles for everyone, and in every circumstance. The tea did NOT transform my looks to those of Princess Grace, (whom I consider the most beautiful woman of all time), and have NOT cured me of a very slight case of Myasthenia Gravis…a neuro-muscular ailment which I have had since the age of four. I DOUBT very much that it has made me immortal, and I know for a fact that it has NOT granted me super-powers, or the ability to fly, or to transcend time.
(No one has ever accused me of not having a good imagination! : ) HOWEVER, UPON DRINKING THAT TEA, MY FEELINGS OF INFECTION, (a feeling of weakness quite different from that of Myasthenia Gravis), DID GO AWAY! I don’t remember what the other testimonals for this tea were….but I’m sure, now, that at least 98% of them are true!
Perhaps there is no real “fountain of youth”. But this tea…which seems to cure many ailments, and most probably helps one lose weight as well, if taken often enough, seems a very close second. Ponce de Leon would have been happy with it, I’m sure. I don’t know if it will help everyone…but I do know it helped me, (and probably the other people who gave testimonials, too.) And that second cup of tea — even the whole 4 ounces of lose tea — are certainly less expensive than going to the hospital! For those on a budget, like me, Wu-Long tea is, it seems, destined to be used as a luxury, and/or in an emergency. But I really feel it belongs in every home…..just like aspirin does. And — for emergency use…PLEASE take the same precautions I did: 1) Be sure you do have the energy to actually make and drink the tea, and 2) Be near a telephone, so you can call 911, in case the tea doesn’t work for you.
The tea did work for me, in the above circumstance, anyway. An elixir of life? Perhaps and perhaps not, depending on the person and the circumstances. All I know is, that for me, and under the circumstances described above, it certainly seems to have saved mine!
Great Taste, very satisfying
Kinda pricey …
