Chu Yung Tea Free Trial

There seem to be a lot of negative reviews about a Chu Yung Tea Free Trial offer, mainly about credit card  payments being taken after cancellation.
The advertising on many affiliate sites states:
“Cho Yung Free Trial Pack Offer
If you are not too convinced about this weight loss drink, then there is nothing to worry as Cho Yung Tea comes with a free trial pack offer. Besides you can also avail special offers and deals. For the trial pack, you only need to pay £1.99 i.e. the cost of shipping. If you are satisfied with it, you can make a monthly payment of £39.99 per month after fourteen days. Or if you are not satisfied, you can cancel the order.”

However, read the following, via MoneySavingExpert.com Forums:
“I signed up with the 14 day free trial where you pay £ 1.99 for P&P via a reward site.

This is the reply I received.

And this from complaintsboard.com:

Like so many other people, I ordered 2 “free trial” products 2 different (LIFE CLEANSE and CHO YUNG TEA) ostensibly from 2 different companies.
Like others, I gave my credit card details, as instructed, for postage and packaging, in order for the “Free Trial” products.
I received 1 “free” CHO YUNG tea and 1″free” LIFE CLEANSE”, in August.
A month or so later I noticed monies taken from my credit card statement (which is only sent once a month) for transactions by companies I did not recognise.
After a preliminary inquiry I discovered that the “Free Trial” companies had not only taken money for postage and packaging but had also taken, and are continuing to take, money for products I have NOT even received, let alone ordered, since the one, original “Free Trial” product!
As soon as I became aware of this I contacted my credit card company. I discovered that I have been charged for the LIFE CLEANSE product by 4 different companies!!!
Whomever the ‘original’/registered company may be, these scammers are trading under the names of :

VIV3 LABS, HEALTH SCIENCE, HEALTH FOCUS & TRADING PLANET LTD.

I also discovered, via the credit card company, that CHO YUNG (the “Free Trial” tea) are associated with the other 4 companies so, it would appear, there must be one overall group of people setting up various companies and I have been scammed by “one” consortium operating as 5 different companies -ALL of which are not only extorting monies from my account, but doing so without any difficulty.
London, as you may know, is currently experiencing a postal strike and has, for the past few months, been suffering from postal delays. In the midst of this I have to wait for “dispute forms” from my credit card company to arrive, complete and return them (more delays) whilst these companies continue to extract money from my account.
Whilst I then continue to wait for the credit card company to investigate my “dispute” more money is taken and I have to request the credit card company to send more “dispute forms” which will be inevitably either lost or delayed in the post!
Apparently, the credit card company takes the view that this is not a case of FRAUD (as I “gave” my details to this “company” albeit for postage and packaging for a “Free Trial” product) it is a case of DISPUTE. They can neither put a “hold” on my account, nor give me a different card with a different number as the procedure demands that I complete “dispute” forms, whilst my account stays live.
EVERYONE should be made aware, not only about this SCAM but about the credit card companies approach to dealing with it.
As soon as this dreadful nightmare began, I discovered that the scam first appeared on internet sites some months ago-Why have the scammers not been stopped!!!? “
