I am a sucker for a cuppa.
In fact I am known to take my Yorkshire tea bags on holiday along with my mini marmite so I can get my daily fix.
I am usually a builder’s tea girl and can drink up to ten cups a day, terrible I know. However I cannot stand coffee!
We all know that tea, especially green tea, can be good for you in moderation. I do not tend to like fruit teas, no substitute for a real cuppa, but I was willing to try SlimKitten's Morning and Bedtime Teatox, after all it says it will help me lose weight.
The teatox set includes 7 morning teabags and 4 bedtime teabags in two handy lock tight bags.
Instructions said to drink a cup of tea infused with 17 nutritious natural herbs for breakfast then every other night have a cup of bedtime tea.
The tea contains Yerba Mate, Chamomile, Hibiscus, Rosa Canine, Siberian Ginseng, Orange Peel, Tamarind, Lemon Grass, Ginger, Raspberry, Blueberry, Cranberry, Centaurea, Eucalyptus, Fennel and Pimpinella. It all sounds wonderful but does it taste ok?
Surprisingly yes. As instructed I poured boiling water on the tea bags and left for 5 minutes for a medium strength. It had a slight spicy but refreshing flavour and not at all horrible. I tried leaving the bag for longer (10-15 minutes) but I have to say it was too strong for me and I advise removing the bag and mixing well with a spoon, otherwise you can get a bitter taste.
The SlimKitten's Morning and Bedtime Teatox website https://www.getnutriplan.com/ says that the tea will stop you feeling bloated, make you feel refreshed and awake, reduce sugar and carbs cravings and boost your immune-system. I have to say it pretty much did them all.
The night time tea does make you go to the toilet, which for me is a blessing as this is always an issue. It has reduced bloating for this reason and I feel more awake after my morning tea. Having a healthy tea in the morning also has made me feel more on track for a healthy day. I was to make sure I eat and drink well all day, start as I mean to go on. Unlike normal tea the night-time detox does not keep you up all night needing the wee every few hours which is a bonus as well.
One other bonus is that I didn’t not have any adverse effects or skin outbreaks. Sometimes detox products have caused an outbreak or skin rash but I had neither using this.
I will definitely try this again, a great detox kit before or after an event or holiday.
