I have a confession. I am now “one of those people who drinks tea.”. I sort of always wanted to be “one of those people” but until I discovered Newport Skinny Tea I really had no passion for the stuff. The closest I’d come to enjoying tea was in the winter with an orange spice blend that really was just an excuse to use fancy English china. In the Summer I occasionally enjoy an iced black tea lemonade from Starbucks…which is really more of a refreshing cocktail than actual tea.
When I heard there was a detox tea that helped curb your appetite and was extremely healthy for you I had to give it a try! It was just a happy coincidence that the company was from CALIFORNIA! SoCalVal was quite intrigued. I can now report that not only does “Newport Skinny Tea” really curb cravings but it tastes GREAT. I was surprised at how yummy it was after I prepared my first cup of their daytime tea. Which lists ingredients of…
Oolong Tea, Pu’her Tea, Sencha Green Tea, Cha de Bugre stems and bark, Yerba Mate, Peppermint Leaf, Eleuthero, Dandelion Leaf, Stevia Leaf, Nettle, Rose Hips, Hibiscus Flower, Garcinia Fruit, Hawthorne Berries, Lemon Peel, Bladderwrack, Butcher’s Broom, Ginseng Leaf, Senna Leaf, Sweet Cinnamon Bark Powder.
As the package instructed I had a cup of tea before breakfast and lunch. Are these magical ingredients that made me not want to eat? No. Did it sustain me enough that I wasn’t AS hungry and therefore did not eat as much and was more satisfied with a light, low carb meal. Absolutely YES! That’s what sold me here. The website is very helpful to recommend a healthy eating plan along with your tea “cleanse” should you want to follow it. I took some of that advice but personally chose to stick to my usual low carb meal plan. Which wasn’t too far off of their plan anyway! The point is that it got me into a healthy habit of having a cup of tea before each meal. I became more mindful of what I was eating and what portions I would allow on my plate.
The evening tea also has a lovely flavor. And it really does relax you before bedtime which I appreciated. I usually do not sleep well and have trouble mentally winding down from a stressful day. The habit of enjoying the evening tea prepared hot was relaxing on it’s own. It sort of forces you to come down from whatever stress cloud you were on that day and just chill. It also helps curb any late night cravings you might be having. The ingredients of this yummy blend are…
Roobios Tea, Senna Leaf, Dandelion Leaf, Lotus Leaf, Slippery Elm Bark, Sweet Cinnamon Powder, Lemon Grass, Butcher’s Broom, Bladderwrack, Hibiscus Flowers, Orange Peel, Rose Hips
So after completing the “Newport Skinny Tea 14 day cleanse” where I enjoyed the tea daily for two weeks and then took one week off, I can honestly say I am feeling lighter, healthier and sleeping better. I am including the link below so you can join me in the tea drinking world! It’s lovely out here! And the fact I get to bust out my fancy English china on a regular basis is just icing on the cake!
Ooof. Now I am craving cake. Better pour a cup of Skinny Tea…. 😉
