Tea with Benefits: The Slender Blend Detox and Weight Loss Tea

*I received this product free for testing purposes. All opinions are 100% my own*

I am an avid tea drinker, especially during the colder months. I have a whole cupboard full of tea right now, and I'll probably grab some more when I go grocery shopping this weekend. The whole ritual of making tea is very soothing, especially if it is a loose leaf blend, so when I was offered the chance to try out some delicious tea that might also help slim me down a bit I grabbed my favorite cup and eagerly awaited the UPS truck.

The Slender Blend by Tea Love Co. is a special green tea blend designed to help stimulate your metabolism, which in turn helps you burn off more calories. And since it is green tea you get the added antioxidant benefits as well. And the most important point is it actually tasted great, which for me in the #1 factor in anything I eat or drink. If it doesn't taste good I'm not doing it, sorry. So I was very relieved see that is wasn't nasty and medicinal tasting.

What I typically did was every night (and sometimes in the morning depending how I was feeling) I'd heat up enough water for 2-3 cups of tea, then I'd place my tea into the pot and I'd let it steep for a big. This was my nightly routine for a 14 day trial. I measured myself before I started drinking the tea then again at the 7 day checkpoint. I had lost half an inch around my waist, which was pretty impressive, and another half an inch around my hips. By the 14 day checkpoint however my personal health problems decided to flare up on me and I'm super bloated and in a lot of pain which means I'm on heavy pain meds which also make me bloat up.

So I can't tell you what the end result was, but I am super happy with just the one week results and I'm going to continue to drink the tea once my health issues have settled down a bit more. While this is a little more than I typically like to pay for tea, I think $18.99 with free Prime shipping is ok enough that I will buy another pack once mine runs out. Being able to debloat and actually look good in my clothes is a big deal for me right now thanks to the health issues I mentioned. I really liked this stuff and I highly recommend it if you are in the market for a slimming tea.
