Well. This is going to be the shortest review I think I am ever going to write!
I have always been sceptical of any 'teatox' or slimming aid drink, because it just does the exact same as green tea, (which is much cheaper!)
I was gifted the Your Tea teatox in my #BloggersSecretSanta2014 goodie bag, which I was pleasantly surprised to see as I have always wanted to trial one, but didn't really want to sacrifice £20 to do so.
The Youtea teatox contains enough teabags to drink three cups a day for two weeks. As a dedicated green tea drinker already, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste! Very similar to my usual Twinings sachets, but sliiiiightly better. As far as the taste of green tea can go anyway!

The Your Tea website states how the 14 day detox contain various chinese herbs designed to nourish and cleanse the digestive system. It also claims to aid with:

  • bloating
  • indigestion
  • problematic skin
  • cellulite
  • increase energy
  • reduction of excess weight
  • increase energy

I have no idea why the website repeats the "increase energy" point, as I noticed no difference in this whatsoever, never mind double the amount! (Spelling mistakes/grammatical errors on professional websites are my biggest pet peeve, it suddenly makes me feel like the website isn't legit and its going to clone my card or something!)

BACK TO THE REVIEW. I felt absolutely no difference in my body whatsoever. I lead a relatively healthy lifestyle anyway, so any weight loss/energy increase I would put down to my fitness levels increasing not a change in tea bag!

I am seriously stepping my gym game up a gear before I go home for Christmas so I don't feel too bad for over-indulging later this month. I am aiming to hit the gym at least 3x a week, no take-outs, and no alcohol! (cough)

So finally, my word of advice to anybody wanting to beat the bloat, lose weight, increase their energy levels or cleanse their digestive system....don't waste your money on silly fad teatoxes and diets and just make healthy choices! Drink green  tea, don't eat junk, and get off your ass! 

You will thank me later when you've made room for that extra Yorkshire pudding with your Christmas dinner! ;)

Your Tea teatox is available for £20 HERE
