Weight loss tea
Chinese, like Americans, love diet plans. Average diets are much more oily and meaty than previous years, so Chinese are bulking up. To combat this, there are many new products on the market, many ridiculous, designed to help you lose weight.
Weight loss teas (减肥茶，or literally "lose/subtract weight tea") are a common, sane form of weight control and look much like Western bag teas, with a Western price to match. All of the ingredients in such tea are very Chinese, and are traditionally drank without any weight loss goals in mind. (Strangely, all ingredients in these teas are easily bought for much cheaper at local markets or drugstores here.)
From experience, these tea ingredients are great for digestion, helping upset stomachs, relieving bloating and keeping regular.
