I HOPE you haven’t bought into all that TEATOX bullshit. No, seriously. If you believe those “I lost 7 KG in a week just by drinking this miracle slimming tea!” claims, please STOP. If you asked me to write a post to debunk the teatox hype, I’d have SO MUCH to say, oh trust me I do. I’m NOT sorry to be the bad guy here and say it to your face: IT’S JUST WATER WEIGHT LOSS. AND YOU’LL PUT ALL THE WEIGHT BACK ON AFTER YOU STOP YOUR TEATOX PROGRAM.
There. When it comes to weight loss, it has always been, and will always be, Calories In versus Calories Out.
Now that we are absolutely clear on my position as regards gimmicky slimming tea scams masquerading as wholesome detox programs, I should tell you that I am very much a TEA LOVER. I MUST have tea every day. Every day! I acquired a taste for tea when I embarked on my weight loss journey and needed a low-calorie, preferably natural and flavourful beverage replacement – you know I quit soda, right? – so I started to explore the MIND-BLOWING world of tea. SO MANY varieties to choose from. Dandelion, peppermint, ginger, rosehip, green. AMAZING stuff, I tell you.
When I received some Tealy samples in my BellaBox a few months ago, I was quite thrilled BUT it was really when I tried them out that I started to pay attention to Tealy. Those were some of the YUMMIEST teas I’ve ever had and I am NOT exaggerating.
In fact, when they wrote to me recently to thank me for the mention and asked if I would like to share with you their Christmas promotion, I agreed cos (1) THEY AREN’T SCAMMY, (2) I love their teas very much, (3) I’d been wanting to buy some for myself, (4) there’s an EXTRA DISCOUNT CODE FOR YOU in this post.
So the folks at Tealy sent these over to my office – a box containing 20 bags of Peach Berry Jasmine Sutra Rooibos and a packet containing 7 bags of Rose Oolong. Heaven! ♥
