Weight Loss Tea - An Opinion


You've probably seen them around. Ads for slimming tea, weight loss tea, "lose weight fast", presented to you on your web browser with flashing buttons coupled with before and after images of people miraculously gaining a six pack after drinking some weight loss tea.

With most things in life (and especially with weight loss), there really is no easy and fast way to lose weight. The cold hard truth is that with the way the human body works - nothing will make you lose fat/weight other than a caloric deficit.

Slimming and weight loss tea can only 'assist' the body in weight loss if you are coupling this with a healthy diet, and ideally some exercise too. How can tea assist? Mainly by acting as a diuretic (translation: peeing more).

The other factor is that if you're on a 'weight loss tea detox diet' then of course you're going to be eating less and thus activating the caloric deficit that will promote weight loss. This should not be attributed to the tea itself. It is only the body doing it's thing when you eat less calories than you're burning!


How useful is weight loss tea actually?

As mentioned above, it's a great tool to use along with the correct diet and a healthy lifestyle. Drinking ONLY weight loss tea is not a healthy lifestyle and if you do that you're going to find yourself on the toilet more often than not. We don't endorse this type of diet, as there are so many other less dangerous and healthier alternatives.

With weight loss tea you're getting diuretic effects, a slightly raised metabolism, anti-oxidants (always useful no matter what), and suppression of appetite. All of these effects, like many with herbal teas - are not immediate in your face next day 'wow I've lost weight' impacts.

Most herbal teas work over time and follow the rules and laws of nature. Natural remedies are often gradual but safer, stable, and longer lasting as the changes will normally occur at a more base level within the body and take time to show.

They have their time and place and we don't promote Herbal Tea as a wonder cure all method for all types of illness. That being said, we do believe that nearly everyone can expect some very reasonable and reliable quality of life improvements when drinking Herbal Tea of different types and for different purposes.

They're great, and at times amazing for a variety of uses such as stress reduction, aiding with sleep, the common cold, coughs, and even libido. These are backed up by recent studies and research whilst we're quite hard pressed to find many studies backing up the effects of weight loss tea with that tea being the sole reason for weight loss.

The body can be helped along and influenced in other areas, such as the ones mentioned above - but sadly, as evidenced by modern study, weight loss is something tea does not have a strong impact on if taken purely by itself with no other influence such as exercise and a change of diet.

    Great honest article. Well written. Much more honest than some of the false over-the-top claims some companies make about their products.

The quality and potency of this green tea is outstanding!
Have been in search for really good green tea for many years now. We drink it nearly everyday. Have tried Japanese, Chinese, etc.
The search is over. Will only get this one from here on.
Almost finished the big bag just bought. Reordering now!
Thank you TeaLife! :)

Hi Elise, Thanks so much! This one is grown on a small farm in Australia as a family business - with the hand roasted version of our green tea coming from the same place too. We've had similar feedback for this tea, so we'll definitely be keeping it around for as long as they can supply us. We will hopefully be able to offer larger bags in the future once we get our act together and increase our storage space! - Toby

The order was very quickly processed and sent out. The quality of the product is also fantastic.

Hi Kate, Thank you! We have a large fragrance company in America using our Melissa Tea too, so the quality is definitely there! Thanks for your review. - Toby
Great service

Great personalised service and an all Australian product, how could you go wrong?! Love the packaging of the teas too.

Thank you Jenny! Still unsure if the packaging is too cute, but it's a good reflection of the personality of Tea Life. :)
High quality and delicious!

Firstly, I have to say the customer service is really good. The parcel took a little longer to come than I expected, so I emailed to check and I received a response straight away and an offer to re-send for free. Thankfully it did arrive and it is packed in a way that makes for easy storing. Also it tastes FANTASTIC! I used it in a special food recipe for an anniversary gift. My husband says it tastes great on its own too. I'll definitely be purchasing again.

Hi L, Thanks for getting back to me on this one! Something i'll normally do when asked where a delivery is, is ask to wait about 1 more day because 99% of the time it will turn up the day after an enquiry! Sorry for the transit time this time around, it's not really a common occurrence. I'm glad you like the tea! - Toby
