Everybody who know’s me a little will be surprised that I even tested those 4 tea’s and even more that I share my experience and write a review on my blog about them. First let me tell you I love to drink tea and drink a lot of it, even during the hot period of the year. I don´t have a preference between fruit and herbal tea’s, most of them I really like. Some of them I try to avoid teas like green tea, jasmine and rooibos tea because of their taste but in a mixture with other strong tasting herbs or fruits I don´t mind them.
I have a couple of tea’s I drink when I have some issues. When I have a bloated stomach I drink peppermint or stinging nettle herb tea, when I´m tired I drink black tea, when I´m hot during the summer I drink some cold peppermint tea, when my stomach is upset because I ate too much raw onions or garlic I drink chamomile tea and when I´m thirsty I turn to cold fruit tea’s.
The science aspect to the detox tea is that we don´t need them because the body has it´s own detox system. Of course people see a difference with clearer skin and less bloating over time but this is mostly because of more fluids they drink. Many forget to drink during the day and when they have such an experiment ahead of they tend to drink whenever it is recommended. Like I learned in school if you drink enough water during the day the digestive system is working properly and the skin is clearer.
All the detox tea’s mentioned below were tested for 5+ days and between the tests I had a break from 48-96 hours. All of the tea’s suggest a healthy eating plan on the side as well to make the detox complete. All 4 of the detox tea’s are organic and made from natural products.
I personally would recommend that you buy the tea you like the most, no matter if it is fruit tea or herbal tea as long as you drink enough you should see the same results. Work on your diet and try to consume less sodium as well as all processed sugar products after 21-30 days you should see a huge difference in your skin, the mood swings will calm down and the graving will go away as well.
Harmonie für Körper und Seele – Detox from Tekanne
This tea is a combination from stinging nettle herb, mint, green tea, pepper mint and juniper berry. The company promises a perfect blend between the herbs and that it helps with your well being. They recommend to drink 3-5 cups of detox tea during the day.
The package itself looks nice and appealing to me. The slogan from the company on the outside is nice as well, it gives it that personal touch.
First of all I got the impression that I had to use the bathroom a little more than usual which is just what the detox tea should do, helping to get rid of the bad substances in the body. I always enjoyed drinking teas with stinging nettle in it but was worried about the green tea but the note from it wasn’t really strong. The tea was not to sweet and not to bitter just the right mixture for a tea you can drink on a daily base.
During the 3 days I didn’t really see any results or feel any different besides the bathroom visits and that my stomach was a little less bloated but the same effect has peppermint tea on me.
Das gesunde Plus – Detox Tea from DM
The tea from DM offers a combination of lemon grass, stinging nettle herb, green tea, peppermint and maté leaves. The maté leaves in the detox tea adds the caffeine needed for a wake up call in the morning and a great tea for the afternoon low. The brand offers reliable, reasonably priced and high-quality products for the well being in all circumstances. The flavorful detox tea is vital feeling and gives you a good over all feeling.
The package itself is green and looks calming to me with the tea cup and the yoga lady.
The bathroom use stayed the same with this tea but I felt less bloated as well as with all the other teas. This tea was a great combination taste wise but if you let it sit for more than 6 minutes the lemon grass taste is getting too strong for my taste, this made me drink it short brewed. Normally I´m not a huge coffee or caffeinated drink person but the little push from the maté leaves are perfect for the wake up call.
The trial period was okay but always with a little timing involved because I couldn´t just let the tea bag in the water alone because of the strong lemon grass taste. Besides that the detox was not really visible.
Skinny Detox from Teatox
The good night tea persists of rooibos, lemon balm leaves, peppermint leaves, green oat herbs and hibiscus blossoms. The brand promises you a good night sleep thru stimulated digestion and thru the help of body relaxation during the night. I really like the packaging in a metal box with a neutral label in white and blue.
Taste wise this teatox tea is something you need a little getting used too time because not everybody, like myself, likes rooibos tea or hibiscus. Besides that the tea was really fruity and not so much herb like, which was a great chance from all the other detox tea’s. I enjoyed drinking a cup or two in the evening because of the relaxed feeling I got from it.
During the test of this product I had the biggest change, my sleep was a little deeper and I didn’t wake up as often before and my bloating was gone from the first day on. I really mean gone and even after I stopped it took almost 3 days until I was a little bloated again.
Fasten-Tea from nu3
Ingredients are green maté, blackberry leaves, stinging nettle herb, rose hip, fennel seeds and birch leaves. The brand nu3 has no promises on the package which is really welcoming because you have to make up your own mind. The box is white with a pink lettering which is different from the others with the calming colors.
The color is greener than all the other tea’s which was a pleasant surprise and gave me a first hint to the taste. This tea tasted the most bitter from all four I tested but it was still not too strong, so I didn’t need honey or other sweeteners. The one thing that I didn’t like was that the tea itself is really fine and my usual tea egg wasn’t small enough to keep all the brew out of my tea.
With this tea I had to use the bathroom a lot and I for sure felt the bloating going down.
