If you’re constantly on Instagram I’m sure you’ve seen Tiny Tea (a.k.a. You Tea) advertised everywhere alongside other tea detoxing companies. I thought this was just another gimmicky tea, but that’s until I saw a friend of mine try it out and had amazing results. I had to see what the hype was all about and try it out on my own. So I purchased the 28 Day TEAtox kit – and how it works is that you drink 3 bags a day 30 minutes before your meals. The tea is suppose to help with indigestion, bloating, cellulite, problematic skin, reduction in excess weight, and increases energy by delicately cleansing the digestive system.
So why did I decide on this tea? Well no matter what exercise or diet I do, I can’t seem to get rid of the bloating in my belly. My friend also mentioned that the tea helped suppress her appetite, so I thought that was a bonus as well since I tend to overeat. I also started getting back into shape so I thought this would help boost things up. So besides drinking this tea I also did 50-60 minutes on the elliptical at a moderate to fast speed, then 30 minutes of yoga every other day 7 days a week. I also ate more greens, drank more water, and saved carbs for the weekends.
So the first day of drinking the tea was easy breezy, but going into the second day I encountered horrible cramps and pains in my stomach. I quickly contacted Tiny Tea to ask what was going on with my body and this tea! Their customer service was really great and emailed me back right away with answers. I’m going to be totally honest and it might be TMI, but if you want to learn about my experience you’re going to have to suck it up (it really isn’t that bad though lol). They stated that my symptoms were not unusual in the detoxing process and it could be that my body was trying to push out the toxins. They told me to reduce my tea intake to 2 bags a day instead of 3 in the meantime and that if the pains continued to contact them again.
Going into the third day I continued to have some pain, and on the fourth I experienced some minor constipation. At this point you would think that any smart person would stop right? Well my curiosity and the fact that I just spent $55 on tea kept me going (lol). By the fifth day it was as if nothing had ever happened and my body felt normal again. On top of that, I had a lot of energy and my body was running normal…if you know what I’m saying. After those first few days, it was easy drinking the tea again.
What I liked the most about this Teatox is that there are no laxatives, so it was very gentle all the way up to my 28th day. I can honestly say that this tea has eliminated my feelings of grogginess and I’m feeling pretty clean if I may say!
I recorded my results in photos:
As you can see the Teatox did some magic – but in no way is this a miracle tea for weight loss. I doubt you will see much or any results without exercising or following a healthy diet. Would I do it again? Probably, but only if there was a sale on this tea since the price still doesn’t make much sense to me. Do I recommend it? I did enjoy Tiny Tea and saw results, so yes.
Update*: It has been over a month ago that I finished this tea and my views have been slightly altered. Read the comments below.
