It took me more than one year to get my blog off the ground because I was too scared of throwing myself into the digital world. A lot of different questions crossed my mind. Why would anyone read my blog? Are my ideas interesting? Would I be able to create consistently good content? How will I know blogging is/ is not for me? I needed to detox my mind.I am happy I took the plunge. I may not be a storyteller and sometimes my writing style is more expository than narrative or descriptive, but that`s ok. After all, I am not everyone`s cup of tea. At the moment, this is my favourite reminder, and I needed something tea related as today I am back with a teatox review.
Armed with my floral pyjamas, some good books, and a fancy – again, apparently, a floral tea set, I tried the 14 DAY TEATOX from the brand TEATU. As you, probably guessed I am obsessed with florals. I am not crazy enough to go outside and style “the pyjama trend” so I stayed safe, posing inside the house. I feel like this post is already too long so let`s jump into the review.
Now I do not know why all bloggers insist on describing what colour is the box the product came with or how glamorously was it wrapped. All I want to mention regarding the packaging is that both packs have teabags, so you do not need a tea infuser. For me, that is a plus.
Quantity / Price
Inside the box, I found two packs – one for daytime use with 14 tea bags and one for night time – 7 tea bags. So in total (you guessed) there are 21 tea bags. You can choose an intense detox routine for 14 days: one daytime teabag per day together with one nighttime teabag every other night, or you can have one pack at a time. Their price varies from £19.99 (14 days) to £32.99 (28 days). Most of the detox teas on the market have a similar price. However, I find this teatox (and most of the detox drinks) slightly expensive. Taste
At the beginning of any tea cleansing routine, I strongly recommend you do your research. Is important to choose ingredients you know or you tried before. You do not want to waste your money one something tasteless. Now, the Daytime Detox Tea is soo delicious! I have not expected such a good taste.
I am over the moon when I discover a great tea, and I do not need to add any sugar, sweeteners or honey in it. For me, the Night Cleanse tea has an adamant taste: too much cardamon or caramel flavour?!? To fix it, I had to add loads of lemon slices, and I brew the tea in a flask with lots, lots of water. The idea of iced/cold tea it is not something that I like; I tried it with this teatox but I fancy brewing the tea and drink it hot.
Here is a close-up picture so you can check all the ingredients used by Teatu.
Effects/ Results I have to admit that after drinking the tea, I was less bloated and that`s a big plus. I do not weight myself, so I do not know if I lost weight, but my tummy flattened. There are no “before and after pictures” with my abs as my pyjama is covering them. Next time, I promise :). I have not noticed any side effects and no any cathartic effects. Also, I cannot tell if I had more energy than before or if my skin had improved.
Wrapping it up, what works for me, may not work for you. We are different individuals but the desire to live a healthy life belongs to all of us. When trying any detox tea, is important not to have huge expectations. Detox tea works if you are a proactive person and if you have a healthy diet. I hope this post inspired you at least to drink more tea and look after yourselves. If you want to discover more about Teatu, you can find them here.
