I discovered teatoxing through instagram, and immediately wanted to try it out. I found Your Tea through instagram friends, and began to research them. According to the YourTea website, their 14 Day Teatox, which is the one I tried, claims that the tea helps balance out the body, can clear skin, reduce bloat, reduction of body fat and the like. So here is how my 14 day teatox went…
also, a big part of teatoxing is eating healthy! Check out my video blog here for healthy recipes.
I received my package on Saturday May 10th, 2014. I was graciously gifted by the fabulous people over at Your Tea, and the packaging is truly adorable. Small, compact box with a cute little note on the inside flap. Check out the pictures below!
How Tinytea is Different
Tiny teatox is different because it doesn’t contain any laxative effective ingredients. Its a healthy tea without laxative effects. This tea is also different because many teatoxes include a nighttime tea, and a daytime tea. This teatox comes with only 1 kind of tea to be taken 2- 3 times a day, 30 minutes before a meal. The packaging comes with 42 tea bags tucked nicely into a cute cardboard box with a welcome statement printed on the inside. It also comes with an accordion card that explains various types of teas that are sold on Your Tea’s website.
30 minutes prior to breakfast I enjoyed my first cup of Your Tea…
My first initial reaction was, it doesn’t taste like anything! I’m used to drinking strong, BLACK coffee, so I’m guessing a nice light blend of tea probably would taste like nothing in comparison to my usual morning beverage. But, I felt a boost of energy from the moment I finished my first mug full. I was running around the house, cleaning!(which I never do) and I felt terrible for my poor husband because he was exhausted and I was talking his ear off! My 2nd mug tasted much better. I’m not going to be drinking coffee during this experience so my tastebuds will have a chance to desensitize themselves from the usual strong taste of coffee. Still high on energy!
Day 1 Review: My first day was all in all, good! Nice light flavor of tea, and my energy level was through the roof! This is a good start to my 14 day Teatox! For my second cup of the day, I headed to the kitchen and ripped open a bag of Tinytea teatox. DO not, I mean DO NOT rip the bag! Half of my tea came flying out onto the floor. Be careful with the teabags they are very, very delicate. Luckily for me I have a loose leaf tea steeper from Teavana, so I just used that and poured the contents of the tea bag in there and boiling water followed. I will say I actually enjoyed this way of steeping much better because I could taste the subtle fruity flavors in the tea. I might just make this a habit!
After a week of doing this teatox, I feel quite good! My energy is up and my appetite is lower, I am eating pretty healthy and I am feeling like my bloating is going away. I am also really enjoying the taste of this tea! Unfortunately I have noticed some nausea in combination with the tea, but I know that can be a side effect of beginning a detox, so I’m not too concerned.
Day 7 Review: A week has passed and my energy level is still very high. Tons of friends have mentioned that I’m starting to look a lot leaner and I have noticed that my bloating has gone down quite a bit. The little bit of nausea I’ve experienced within the first week wasn’t fun, but manageable, and was gone pretty quickly. I’ve also gotten into the habit of icing the tea and sticking it in the fridge for quick and easy access, in the event that I don’t have time to boil any water. Your Tea recommends to drink the tea warm/hot though, so if you can, make sure you do that!
So the last day is here, and I do notice that my bloating has gone down quite a bit. I’ve seen plenty of success stories with this teatox, so don’t rule this one out on your quest to a tight body. I also really like this teatox because it’s all natural, tastes good, and got rid of that nasty bloat. I’ve been drinking it iced a lot lately with a slice of lemon and I love it. It’s easier to take around with you, especially if you know you won’t have access to a stove or a microwave.
Day 14 Review: 2 weeks flew by and I wish I had more of this tea left. It was so tasty and I feel great every day! I will definitely be purchasing more, and I highly recommend it to people who enjoy a nice herb flavored tea.
Packaging: The packaging is small and compact, no fuss packaging. The aesthetic value of the box is great, I almost feel bad throwing it away. (Which I haven’t yet) and the tea bags are adorable! Pink is my favorite color.
Taste: The taste is very light, herby, and fresh, I have begun to savor the three times a day I have my cup of Tiny tea. It’s very refreshing! I also like to add a dab of honey occasionally and lemon. Yum!
Quality: The quality of the tea is very good. The taste is great and it seems to be a high quality, healthy tea.
Pros from other customers: “Much to my surprise, I noticed gradual results from the second day forward. My waist looked smaller, I felt less bloated and, as a result, my stomach looked flatter. Prior to Tiny Tea, I had been seriously bloated for over a month, regardless of a clean diet and regular exercise routine.” By Daisy Lucas
Packaging: The Tea packaging along with the tea bags are VERY delicate. Be careful when opening them! I ripped the tops off of quite a few of them.
Taste: It’s a highly herbal tea. If you don’t like the taste of herbal tea, I wouldn’t recommend it without honey and lemon.
Quality: No cons in taste quality!
Cons from other customers: Upon research, other customers also experienced some nausea but for most it cleared up after the first couple of days!
So, my results are in, and I have lost a ton of bloat while drinking this tea. I didn’t weigh myself before/after because I knew I would be enjoying myself eating, and drinking, and if I had been eating very healthy I probably would’ve lost some weight. With that being said, even with a few days of bad eating I’ve had a ton of energy, my pimples are clearing up drastically, and like I said before, my bloating is relatively gone! I will say that it’s one of the best tasting teas I’ve tried, but I’m a fan of really herby teas. I’ve been craving the taste for days! I will definitely be ordering more, and will stick to a healthy diet and exercise to fully utilize this healthy blend of herbs next time! Thanks YourTea!

Disclaimer: The detox tea WILL hurt your stomach the morning after you take it. It’s meant to cleanse your system, which means bowel movements (aka runny poops), which typically gives you a stomach ache. If your stomach ache is so intense you can’t function, you should stop using the detox right away and consult your primary care physician.
