I have never in my life done a 'detox'. Honestly, I've never considered one. And the idea of a colon cleanse made me squirm.
But I love tea, and I've never had loose leaf tea. So when I was given the option to try loose leaf tea, I said yes. I was a wee bit surprised to get my 30 Day Detox kit. My husband snickered and said "have fun with that."
Basically you drink the skinny tea every day. And then you drink the colon tea ever other day.
The skinny tea contains Yerba Mate, Oolong Tea, Jiao Gulam, Lotus Leaf, Lime leaf Extract, Ginger root and Rhubarb root. It was my first time using loose leaf tea, and I loved the infuser. And I enjoyed the taste of the skinny tea. I drank it plain without anything added. They recommend cutting out coffee since the skinny tea contains caffeine. I did cut out coffee today, but I'm not sure that I won't sneak a cup back in. I needed just a little more lead if you know what I mean.
The colon tea contains Senna leaf, Root Hawthorn Berry Extract, Lotus Leaf, Lime Leaf, Psyllium Husk Seed, Phaseolus Stem, Bark, and Valerian root. And at first I thought the smell was a little strong. But I actually liked the taste. In fact, I could have enjoyed a second cup. But well, the name of the tea is "colon" so I'm pretty sure 2 cups would be frowned upon :-)
And I know you are all wondering about my first experience with the 'colon' tea. Honestly, it wasn't really that eventful (thankful for that!!!). For some reason I had imaged a stomach flu type experience. It was NOTHING like that.
But so far (only a couple of days into this) I do have to admit that I feel a little more energized.
I'm curious to see how these 30 days work out, and if I actually lose any weight in the process. I'll let you know. I do know that the Colon tea helped me to sleep which was awesome.
But for anyone interested in trying Teami Tea Blends (they have other varieties than the detox), you can use GLASS10 for 10% off. Check them out at http://www.teamiblends.com/
Have you ever done any type of detox? Do you drink tea?
