  1. Wow! The Teami Skinny sounds awesome! I’ve always been a big tea drinker…. but am mostly used to the 3$ boxed bagged tea from the grocery store. I’m really looking into getting into more stuff like this.

    But I do suffer from bloating, and so I have been researching ways to clear the colon and things…. but I want to do it naturally, because I’m hesitant about the many things people put into their bodies.

    So, this sounds lovely! Thank you for all the descriptive suggestions!! 😀

  2. I really like that you talk about completely natural ways to loose weight that are actually good for your body. You also do a very good job explaining how each tea works, breaking each blend down into it’s components, which is really informative. I usually shy away from weight loss supplements, etc. because they’re typically not very good for your body, but I would definitely try some of these teas out.

  3. I like all kind of Asian tea especially green tea and oolong tea. T.K.O. Knock Out Weight Loss Tea and Okuma Nutritionals Premium Chinese Slimming Wu-Long (Oolong) Tea are attractive to me since I have many business trips which make me eat too much with customers.

    Do you think to drink hot tea or ice tea will increase or decrease metabolic rate to affect weight loss? I found hot ginger tea is helpful to me for weight loss and keeping away from catching a cold. Do you hear anybody with similar experience?

  4. All these teas sound great and have different things to offer, personally I try to drink grean tea daily with ginger tea every now and then while my father rinks oolong, apparently I’ll have to throw that into the mix too because you mention it so much.

    I love that Teami tea can replace your morning coffee by giving an energy boost without caffeine, I also love that the T.K.O. ‘knocks out’ cravings but also sounds like it taste great.

    Thanks for the info, if you had to recommend only one which would it be?

  5. There are some really great suggestions here. I guess like most people, as I get older weight is something I’m very conscious of as it seems harder to keep it off. I really like Teami and T.K.O. I had to give up coffee and tea some time ago and I miss that early morning kick so I’ll be definitely looking into that and anything that would help suppress my sugar cravings would definitely help my health long term as well. Thanks very much for posting.

  6. Thank you for this review. Detoxing the body is super important. Not only for weight loss but for general health. I had the Ziptea before, and I actually liked the results a lot. I’m also thinking about trying the Okuma Nutritionals Premium Chinese Slimming Wu-Long Tea, because I heard about Oolong tea before, but never had a chance to try it. I also never heard about Guggul Tonic Tea, where do you get it?

  7. I have heard that tea is the most natural and easiest ways to lose weight. However; I did not know that it is supposed to boost the metabolism and help the body break down fats, or do so many of the other things you described. There are a variety of teas that you talk about that help with different things. How many cups of tea are safe to drink in a day and are there side effects from mixing any of them through the day? I have terrible muscle spasms and am going to definitely try the Teami Skinny to see if the spasms calm down. Thank you for the great information.

  8. Hi there,

    Great article!

    Lately, I have a lot of appetites, maybe because the winter is coming. Anyway, I also would love to lose 5 kilograms that I have put on during my pregnancy. These teas seem to be very effective. I really like the Ziptea because it boosts the metabolism, thus I can lose weight quickly. Do I have to make a diet while drinking the tea or I can eat whatever I like?

    Thank you for this excellent post!

  9. I love the idea of losing weight with tea! I’ve heard of adrenal teas such as ashwagandha for metabolic and thyroid help but not Guggel. It sounds interesting and I’m going to definitely look into this. I suffer from hypothyroidism so I really think this tea would help. Good info- thanks!

  10. Great article, I am writing an article about weight loss and how drinks can help for it, for my non-alcoholics drinks blog at soberhedonist. I am currently doing a teetox aswell, similar to the cuppatea you mentioned, which one have you found to be the best one? Have you found any coffees which do this aswell?

  11. Thank you for a very informative post. Red tea is a powerful drink for weight loss.It has substantial health benefits that are believed to play a direct, positive impact on weight control, which can be attributed to the fact that this beverage contains many polyphenols.
    What makes this tea so special is the production process. With most black tea that we commonly drink, the nutrients can be lost during processing.
