A few weeks ago I was approached by a representative of Zhena's Gypsy tea and offered a free sample of their new teas called Extra Strength Slim Me Tea. At the time, I was experimenting with different green tea flavors. After reading the ingredient list, and doing my own little background check on the company (it's solid!), I agreed to try the teas.
I LOVE them.
The problem I've had with green tea (or tea in general) is the taste. The purpose of wanting to cut down on coffee (for me) is to get away from artificial sweeteners (or sweeteners in general). But I found that I needed to add SOMETHING to the teas I tried to stomach it. Well, this tea is different. They actually taste good with nothing extra added to it. You can drink them hot, or you can even pop a tea bag into your cold water bottle or cup. I've done both and prefer mine hot, but you can have it either way!
There are four different flavors...
I like them all. My favorite is peach vanilla, but I also like the mixed berry and cranberry ginger.
The great thing about these teas is the ingredients. It's really what sold me on trying the product...
This tea actually acts like an appetite suppressant. When I was doing the smoothie fast, this was actually how I made it through, especially during the day when I was at school and the cravings were bad. I actually have already recommended it to people.
So this week, the SlimME tea is actually part of my "don't go crazy on Thanksgiving" plan. I'm packing my tea and taking it to Missouri with me when I go see my family on Wednesday. This tea will hopefully help keep me in control. This tea also helps me with belly bloat (probably the dandelion and juniper?), too. I'm on my fourth cup today trying to detox from bad eating over the weekend (my daughters birthday... I had cake...).
Zhena's would like to offer THREE of my readers a chance to try this tea, too! Here's how to win:
