Tiny Tea Teatox Results and Review

Tiny Tea Teatox*
Hey everyone! If you follow me on twitter you know that recently I was given the opportunity by Your Tea to try their world famous Tiny Tea. When I actually received the email saying they did want to work with me I had to pick my jaw up off the floor and could hardly contain my excitement! 

If you don't know what a Tiny Tea Teatox is, their website says

"My intricately balanced herbal blend will nourish and cleanse your digestive system, providing it the support it needs to replenish and restore back to its natural state. This cleanse will assist with reducing weight, easing bloating, increasing digestion functionality, improving skin clarity, increasing energy levels and alleviate issues associated with food intolerances."

In this review I'm going to show pictures of myself along the way (which isn't easy for me to post these pictures) and talk about how I felt inside from this tea (amazing!)

I was kindly sent the 14 day teatox, where you receive 3 teabags per day and are supposed to drink them 30 minutes before or after every meal, so your stomach is empty and you can receive the full effects of the tea. It also gives you a lot of natural energy (without caffeine) so they recommend you don't drink it late at night. The main focus of this tea is to clean out and detoxify your digestive system and restore the natural balance of your body to keep it working in tip top shape.


Let me start out by saying I was a total skeptic. I am a medical student, so by nature I am skeptical of herbal or natural remedies for certain things. All this tea contains is Oolong tea, cassia seed, lotus leaf, hawthorn fruit, and radish seed. The tea itself is based around Chinese medicine, and if you search the ingredients you can find all of the results they supposedly produce, and let me tell you it actually works!

Another main reason I wanted to try Tiny Tea is because it is the only tea of this kind that doesn't have a colonic element to it. What I mean by that is most teas I've seen you drink one type of tea in the morning, and then a gross tasting tea at night that is a colonic and makes you poop like crazy because it's trying to clear out your intestines. This tea however doesn't have any type of colonic element to it because who really wants to deal with that?

Taste. Taste is one of the most important things when you are drinking a tea 2-3 times a day for weeks. The taste of this tea is VERY earthy. By that I mean it tastes like you mixed Oolong and green tea together with a little something else in it. By no means is it my favorite flavor but i don't hate it, and after the first two or three days you become so accustomed to it, you hardly notice it. One thing I will say is that on the website, box, and instructions they recommend adding some lemon or honey to the tea to make it taste better. Every time I did this it tasted like dirt. It tasted like I took some dirt out of my rose bush and boiled it in some water. I think this tea tastes best when its piping hot to the point where it's drinkable without burning your tongue with nothing added.


Here are pictures of me on the day before I started my teatox. It is difficult for me to post pictures like this online because I am not happy with my body. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis which is basically an autoimmune disease and my thyroid gland slowly dies as I get older (I'm only 19). I have to get  my blood checked every 3-6 months to make sure I am on the right dosage of artificial hormones otherwise I gain weight like crazy. Turns out I was on the wrong dose for a LONG period of time and was gaining weight even if I didn't eat, and so I have been slowly whittling my body back down to a healthy size.


Here are pictures halfway through the teatox. In the instructions, you can drink the recommended 3 cups a day or cut it down to two cups if you feel too energetic, but I ended up having to cut it down to two cups and extend it longer than 14 days because of my class schedule and not having access to hot water at all times.

In these pictures you can already tell what a difference the tea has made. In all of these pictures I am not sucking my stomach in and am trying to stand in the same position, but my arms look strange because I was trying to get rid of weird shadows across my stomach from the lighting in the hallway.


And finally, the end result! I am standing with my legs completely together (not like in the other pics oops) and hello thigh gap! I only mean it as a joke, but everyone in society is so focused on a thigh gap, I made it! Just kidding. But you can really tell what a difference it has made in my body and I am much happier now with how I look.

Now my main focus is to tone up and get bikini ready!

Here are side by side pictures so you can really see my transformation.

One of the side effects of this tea is my skin. And by that I mean any acne I had cleared up straight away, and I haven't had a single spot since being on this teatox. My skin isn't red or angry looking, and during the teatox I was on my period where I ALWAYS get one of those angry spots that's under the skin and makes your whole face hurt. And since I was drinking this tea, not a spot in sight! And I have been off of it for a few days because of a postal mishap (I'm going to talk about later) and my skin is still crystal clear.

A collage side by side from the front of my progression.

Another "side effect" is I didn't have any period cramps. This is huge for me, I used to take birth control (which also made me gain weight) just to make my periods less horrendous. I usually am curled up in fetal position in my bed because of painful cramps (which sometimes induce vomiting) and when drinking this tea they disappeared.

This theory was further tested when one morning I missed drinking my cup of tea, went to the mall and had horrendous cramps and had to leave. Then I thought to myself "Hmm…I haven't had a single cramp, but I didn't drink my tea today…" So I made myself a cup, and BOOM my cramps disappeared. This tea is literally magic in a cup.


The final point I want to touch on is the fantastic customer service of this brand. I don't think I've ever come across a brand with customer service as good as theirs.At Easter they had a 20% off sale, so I decided to stock up on my miracle worker. Buying this tea is cheaper than my birth control ever was, it gives me energy to run more than a mile, gets rid of my period cramps, de-bloats me, helps with my weight loss/management…I could go on for days. 

So I ordered 5 boxes of the 28 day tiny tea teatox. (The 14 day is €25, and the 28 day is €37, so it's cheaper to buy the 28 day one, even if you use it as two 14 day ones). Well my package never arrived so I sent them over an email asking about my package because the tracking number didn't work and the first time I received the tea the mail man came to my door and delivered it. I called every post office in the city, and every mail service and no one had my freaking package!

I was distraught, thinking I had lost my tea (because that's quite a hefty order) and after emailing back and forth with yourtea they found out that the package said it had been "Delivered" which is wrong since I never received it! And so basically something went wrong on the post end of the line, and even though it wasn't their fault they told me they're going to ship out my package again at no cost to me. 
If that isn't the best customer service in the whole world, I don't know what is. I have literally never seen better customer service than theirs and for that I will forever be loyal to this company. And clearly I love it if I bought FIVE boxes of the 28 day tiny tea teatox.

They also have other types of teas, not just Tiny Tea. They have Her TeaMan Tea, Fertility Tea, and Anti-C Tea (cellulite). If any of those sound interesting to you, click the links because their descriptions are so much better than I could ever describe.

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Even though it was EXTREMELY long, I have so many good things to say about this tea and really wanted to share the full experience with you so that there aren't any questions. I would also strongly advise that you follow them on twitter / instagram and subscribe to their mailing list because they have flash sales that are 20% off quite frequently!

Again I hope you enjoyed reading and congrats if you made it to the bottom! Leave comments below and let me know what you think! So many of you have already tweeted me and instagrammed me that you've bought some of your own and it makes me so happy to see that you guys value my opinion so much :) It's things like that, that make blogging so fulfilling.

*Also just an update (6/8/14), I've made a fitness instagram dedicated to posting things day to day like my workouts, what I eat, etc. so if you'd like to follow that it's instagram.com/stephslooktonesup . There will also be some weight loss posts coming up soon as you guys said you wanted to see them :)

  3. What a great review! Really detailed :) I want to try out these teas but I must admit the whole "pooping" side of it scared me a little. But with this not having that side effect then I think this is the tea for me :)

  12. That sounds amazing! I always love your detailed reviews and this one sounds especially appealing to me. Sadly, I hate tea in general, so I can´t really go with this, even though I really want to!

  20. Wow! Did the bloating come back when you stop taking it? That's what I'm worried about :(
    Weight loss, even for me, is a continuous work in progress. There are times when I become sad that it seems so hard to lose weight and maintain it. But oh well, we have to take care of the bodies we're gifted with. Happy for you on your progress! Sending you more good vibes! :)

    no not at all! it only comes back if you start eating badly after you're done with it. it's basically cleaning out your body and you're starting from ground zero. your skin stays clear, your bloating is gone, and then if you choose to eat foods that would cause your body to fill up with everything the tea cleared out it will come back, but otherwise no it's not like one of the "you have to be on this for the rest of your life" type of things. although I keep a box on hand in case I feel really bad or if i eat something strange and my stomach hurts etc. and it solves the problem right away. also fixes my period cramps :) so I always have it around
