Last year, right before summer my Facebook was flooded with advertising of the ‘revolutionaries’ detox and diet tea’s that helps you with bloating, skin and general weight loss. I was intrigued! I bet most of my female friends were intrigued too! Why we wouldn’t be??! Sounds easy, you drink tea in the morning and in the evening and then magically the scale number is down, your skin is beautiful and just by judging all the skinny and tanned beautiful smiley girls, who hold a cup of tea is must a pretty genius option isn’t?? Well, I decided to try!
As a blogger, I am fortunate enough to try some products and test them! So here, I was sent a month detox of a Team Tea Blends! Please don’t judge the post over my perfect shots! I just love photography, smiling and posing! Please read carefully the review if you really want to know what I think!
So, let’s start with reviewing day by day in the first week and then week by week! I think this way I can actually show you how it really worked for me! Unfortunately, I won’t show you my before & after photos due to I just don’t like to show my belly on my blog…maybe if I get more confident, I will one day ;)
I have received my parcel of Teami Tea blends 30 days detox pack and it included:
A)30 day supply of our Skinny loose-leaf tea
B)15 colon cleanse tea bags
C) Pink tumbler
I have measured myself and write down the scale number (not sharing sorry, too personal ;)
Day1: I started straight away, despite it was an afternoon and I should drink in the morning. I just couldn’t hold it, I want to taste it! I am a huge fan of tea, and I can drink any tea without a grim and I found this one really tasty actually. I first used in just tea cup rather using the tumbler. I expected to be stronger but is actually quite mild and easy to drink. This day nothing major happened. I enjoyed my tea and that’s about that.
Day2: I have read the instructions at last! I have brewed my morning tea for about 10min in my tumbler, then put the cap and left home to go to work. The tumbler have amazing mesh insert so no faffing with tea bits in your mouth!
I sat on the tram station waiting, I didn’t have the breakfast yet as I do eat breakfast in work (preferences ;) So, I decided to have a sip. then, I experienced a massive pain! I have burned my tongue! Silly me!!! The tumbler have 2 layers, inside one you have your tea and second is not to burn your fingers but idiot me (or let’s call me nicer, not a mooring person) forgot to switch off my brain and rather check the temperature I took a massive sip of perhaps still around 80degrees water! PLEASE DO NOT DO THAT! Once it cools down a little I actually enjoyed the tea(through the burn tongue pain). By the time I have arrived at work, the tumbler was empty. Around afternoon, I just refilled the tumbler with hot water. the tea was less strong but still quite nice. I was busy all day, so I haven’t noticed anything major.
In the evening, I have made the colon tea. I have brewed it for around 5min and drink it before bed.
DAY3. I wake up with some cramping in my stomach. I get up, and instantly had to have a run to a princess room ;) It got me little worry! I had a shower and went to the kitchen to make my morning tea. Then, I had to go back to princess room! Sigh…
I drank my morning tea at home this day, and just take the empty tumbler (still with the leaves in) to work. As soon as I arrived, I got my morning coffee as always…bad idea.. back to princess room!
After breakfast, back to princess room. It cools down after that. I had several cramping my stomach throughout the day as well.
Around lunch time, I had my second tea of the loose leaves and got back to my lovely princess room.FFs!
On a positive note, I actually felt more energised -exercising in princess room I guess ;)
It was my day free of a colon tea, so I just went straight to bed. the afternoon was pretty quiet and I only went to my favourite room once in the evening!Yasss!
Day4. I wake up and got my morning tea, no trips to the ladies room! Yay! Went to work, quite energised I must say! I took again my tumbler to refill. I did quite a loads that day and actually, I felt lighter (perhaps down to spending all day in princess room yesterday) but it felt great!
I decided to be a little more smart with my colon tea today, I only brew it for around the only 1minute.
I had my tea went to sleep. I need to add here, that colon tea also helps me sleep.
Day5. I wake up before my alarm, went to the kitchen and made my morning tea. I noticed I didn’t have cramps and neither the urge to run to the toilet! YAY! Success! I finished my tea and then, of course, came back to my favourite room. I went to work and pretty much rest of the day went smoothly. I still had the urge of using the toilet more often but it was more moderate, I know that this is after, I eat and drink. Again, I feel much more energised! I run a workshop, important meeting and done few blogging preparation in the evening!
Today is my colon free day, so I just went to sleep with herbal tea instead. I kind of used to the taste in the evening. Weird!
Day6. I wake up super energetic and motivated! (It was beautiful day and the sun outside!) I made my tea and decide to drink on the way to work. This time, I wanted to wait until the tea brew with an open cup and let my tea cool down, I am not burning my tongue! No freaking way! My princess room sessions are more gentle now. Not crazy flow anymore ;) It feels more natural and I used to it that I need to go more often, especially after food or large drink of water. ( oh yes, I drink loads of water throughout!)
Tonight, it is my colon tea night and I am really excited! I did all my blogging and ready to bed I made my tea! It feels like a little ritual now! I have a large glass of water before the tea and again only brew it for 1minute as I really find it work for me. it’s not as strong and no cramping at all! Yes, tea; don't freaking cramp my style ;)
Day7. I wake up and it’s Sunday! A quick visit, you know where ;) and I were ready for my morning tea and… scale check!! I am excited! I wanted a whole week and didn’t want to spoil by cheating!
While drinking my Teami Tea, I have jump onto the scale and with a heartbeat, I watch it the number changing…As if! I am down 3kg! 3kg!!! 3 freaking kilos!!! I am all over the moon! I have then measured myself and I lost a whole inch!!! I bloody love this tea!!! I have spent the day in the sun today and I stayed closer to home, as I did had few urge trips. I think 2 within 5 hours so it wasn’t that bad! It’s my day off colon tea but I decided to have an extra one, a little exciting after my morning discovery! Again, I brew it for a 1 minute with a large glass of water before bed.
I won’t be going day by day here, as it really smooths down and my body is really used to it! I don’t have any cramping and I feel like naturally I am going to toilet! I also start to drink my colon tea more often instead of every other night, I added that twice a week I am having day by day. I get a small box with lid and after brew, I put on the side and to fridge and is ready for the evening next day. (This way I am only screwing with my 30 days supply!)
After a week, my scale down is extra 1kg! Again, I drank also loads of water as a bear in mind you do lose water through the course as well, so you do have to intake that!
Week3. My team tea detox is going really well! I bloody love it. I feel so much better. My bloating is gone. My stomach is super flat!! My stomach is flat! After my late nights before, eating crappy food my weight went up, especially during winter so this is crazy that 3 weeks and I gone down 4 kilos!!
Weeks4 & 5.
I feel really well, I have tailored the tea around me;) I know exactly when I go toilet and if I have something important I skip the tea in the evening and have extra day throughout the week, it still works great. I am, however, not missing my day tea and I always refill the tumbler! Total kilo’s lost 5kg!!! I am over the moon. I feel lighter, happier and my stomach is super flat! it’s the favourite tea ever.
My advices for Teami Tea Blend users:
- Drink loads of water! Especially before your morning and evening tea! it really makes the cramping go away!
- Brew your tea for the only 1minute! Literally with the watch in your hand! I find it amazing!
- Exercise! I did 10min of exercising every other day and also I changed my diet! I didn't have a takeaway, neither eat loads of sweets & chocolates, rest remain same, I ate normally without a crazy diet!
- Very important! If you are a waitress or postman or generally a person who works in an environment that sometimes you can't take a break think to start your diet on your holiday!
- Be prepared for loads ( I mean loads) of trips to toilet! It will settle down, but the first week is the worst I would say so if you work from office or place where they don’t mind you going often to the toilet, you fine!
- It may not work for everyone so just be careful!
Overall, I love this and I would do it again! I probably will do it every 2-3 months now. It works for me, for my body and I do feel like teami tea blends detoxed my body and works as diet tea for me!
