Skinny Mint TeaTox

January 28, 2015

I’ve done a few posts on Instagram about the SkinnyMint Teatox that I tried at the start of the new year. I’ve tried a few of these types of teas in the past, and this one is my favorite thus far. I decided to incorporate the tea with healthy eating habits and daily exercise, and I thought I would share my thoughts of the tea here on my blog. I plan to do more posts on my meal planning and my exercise routine soon.

 I’m a HUGE tea drinker!

I have a cup every morning with my breakfast. I loved the flavor of the Morning Boost. It tasted very similar to green tea or yerba mate — which are some of the ingredients in the tea already. I like a small caffeine boost, but coffee is just too strong for me. Many other detox type teas have a strong or unpleasant taste, but I didn’t feel that way about this at all. I really enjoyed the taste of this tea.

The benefits of a TeaTox can be increased with a clean diet. A healthy diet supports a healthy lifestyle, and you should always have open communication with your doctor about your lifestyle habits. I love to have some fruit and protein every morning for breakfast. It’s the perfect kick starter to my day. This is an example of a morning snack for me. I’m having a handful of almonds, blueberries, blackberries, and a half of a banana with my Morning Boost tea.

The Night Cleanse is gentle, yet effective. I’ve noticed a HUGE difference in my digestion, and overall bloat feeling. I don’t think my stomach has been this flat since before I had my son.

I particularly like that it’s not too strong. I don’t feel like I’m running to the toilet every five minutes. Night time cleanses can be quite intimidating, but this one is super gentle. I also thought that the flavor profile of this tea was enjoyable, and superior in taste to other night time/detox teas that I’ve tried. It’s important to note, these types of cleanses should only be temporary and performed once or twice a year. The night time cleanse is 30 days, and then take a break.

At night I usually diffuse lavender essential oil, put on some hand and foot cream on, and sip the tea while I watch my favorite show or read a book. It’s the perfect night time routine for me, and end to a busy day.

Overall, I thought this was the most effective TeaTox I’ve tried yet.  You will always get the best results if you pair something like this with a healthier lifestyle, but I definitely think it’s a great kickstart.

    How early in the night do you drink your tea? And you say it’s a gentler detox, about how fast does it work? I’ve wanted to try a teatox but always nervous about having to run to the bathroom all the time.

    Hi Rachel, I’ve actually ordered this, but was wondering how long it took to get the shipping email, bc I have yet to receive. I’m looming forests to this tea to as a first timer. Thanks.

    I just started my 28 day SkinnyMint teatox today; the morning Boost taste great like everyone else said it would. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Night cleanse will taste tonight. I’m excited to see the results and motivated to eat clean & exercise. So far, so good.
