Disclosure: I received a box of Tiny Tea 14-day TEAtox from Your Tea complimentary for review. As always, all opinions are my own. Full PR & Disclosure here.
I was approached by Your Tea to try any of their products and give an honest review. I had never heard of Your Tea so my first step was to check out where this company was coming from and what range of products they offered.

Your Tea – Tiny Tea 14-day TEAtox
My choice of tea to review was the Tiny Tea 14-day TeaTox. I had just returned from a long vacation and wanted to get my body off of all the extra sugar and junk food I had consumed and back to normal as quickly as possible.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The directions say to consume 30 minutes before or after a meal twice a day so I set up a schedule to work it in after breakfast and lunch. The tea had a nice aroma and a pleasant taste, and was made up of ingredients that I can hardly say let along know what they would taste like (ingredients such as Jue Ming Zi, He Ye, Shan Zha, Lai Fu Zi, Chen Pi, Mai Ya) (see what I mean) but enjoyable just the same. I am usually a coffee drinker but I have to say that drinking this cup of tea became a quiet interlude that I looked forward to in the midst of my hectic schedule.
What does this Tiny Tea TEAtox purport to do? Tiny Tea states that this tea will assist with:
- problematic skin
- reduction of excess weight
- increase energy
Does it do what it says?
When looking back on my 14 days, I have to say that it definitely had an impact on my digestive system. I found my body getting rid of waste with much less bloating occurring after meals. I did experience a little more indigestion with it at first but as my healthier diet became more routine I found the indigestion lessened. I did not lose any excess weight but found that my body, at the end of the 14 days, was feeling better overall and I felt much more energized.
All in all, I thought the product was good and would be useful to those starting a new diet routine or those trying to adjust back to their usual healthy lifestyle. I enjoyed trying the product and will definitely try some of their other teas. Their sleep tea, which I also received, was one I enjoyed. It tasted smooth and mellow and seemed to have a calming effect similar to a chamomile tea. I would definitely recommend this tea for those that need to unwind from a hard days’ work prior to bedtime.
