Boo Tea Review.



Hi Everyone,

Recently, I returned from a holiday to Tenerife and was hit hard with post-holiday depression. I spent a week wishing I was back tanning all day, dancing all night and spontaneously running into the sea at 5am with my best friends thinking it was a great idea (until we were hit by a tidal wave). In the process of my dreaming I consumed a lot of comfort food to ease the pain, however I was left feeling rather blergh afterwards. 

I had wanted to try a Teatox for ages as I'm a bit of a health freak (that falls off the wagon constantly) and decided this was as good enough time as any to give one a try. I decided to use the brand Boo Tea as the company is based in the UK, and my mum had previously tried this Tea and had a good result, so I went on the Holland and Barrett website and gave it a little purchase.
As a little disclaimer, I didn't take the Tea to try and lose weight specifically but just to help me feel less sluggish and a bit less bulky from all the food I had consumed. I didn't weigh myself however I did notice some changes by the end as I took Before and after photos, and I did look a little less large. 

To sum up the flavours of the tea, the morning one was fine and quite refreshing but the evening one - I HATED it, every time I had to down it and quickly brush my teeth after. It was kind of a peppermint flavour which I do not like one bit. In regard to the 'myth' of the night time tea's having a laxative effect, I found this false. Although it did leave me feeling a lot more refreshed.

All in all, I would recommend this Tea as I felt like it was a great way to kick start getting back into a healthy routine, or if you are just beginning your fitness journey as a teatox is a great way to make sure you stick within your healthy routine. My mentality was that I have paid for this product and so I am going to be good to make sure I get the best results. In future I would re-take this tea whilst exercising more as I didn't have time to exercise/my gym membership has expired and I'm lazy - but I did still see results without one!

If you guys have any more questions, feel free to ask me on my twitter @paigeanthony_ and don't forget to take a look at my brand new YouTube channel.

  9. I don't like peppermint tea all that much either, eugh! I drink green tea all day every day as I don't like normal tea (I'm weird) but it never helps me feel less sluggish or bloated haha, so maybe I should give this a try!

    Love your blog btw, I'm a new follower :)

  21. sounds good :) another alternative is to drink oolong tea with your meals, chinese and asian people have been drinking it to help with health, digestion and and to lose weight. It is very effective i think since we eat lots of rice, meat etc but don't gain too much weight.

  22. Thanks for the honest review, I was quite curious about it and it's good to hear someone finally say that it helps and works a little but definitely isn't a miracle which will get you from size 12 to 8 in a matter of days (as some claim!). :)

  27. I have recently been hooked on pumpkin spice tea, so good for these cool fall days. Your tea sounds interesting. I have tried roasted dandelion tea which is suppose to have the same effect as the tea you mentioned above. Cute mug!

  29. I've actually tried this ages ago, I didn't notice any weight loss but definitely felt a bit less sluggish. I think I'm going to try again as I've been so bloated and blah recently :)

  34. This does sound like a dream - and something that's needed in my life. You see, I have tons of tea packets at home - when I'm buying them, I'd think to myself 'Yes, I'm definitely going to love it and have night time tea every night before bed... blah blah blah..' and it comes to night time and I'm like, 'you know what, i'll skip it today' - and I never end up having it! So, that's my problem when it comes to Boo Tea! But your reviews seem great, so why not give it a whirl?! (my thoughts are currently the 'I'm definitely going to drink it'... ;) )

  35. I did this a few weeks back and, although I loved the teas initially, I did grow weary of it by the end! I followed their diet plan (lazy with the gym though!) and still saw great results after just one week. But I totally agree, its a good starting point! xx

    1. @MissyMay you eat normally but just healthily. I tried to constrict to myself to between 1,200 - 1,500 calories. Boo Tea offer a meal plan on their website for free. x

  41. I believe that you should exercise and eat right all the time! Though I'm one to talk as I eat what I want and don't work out as often as I should... I've heard good things about BooTea on Instagram!

  44. I've never heard of this tea (I'm more of a coffee drinker) but it sounds interesting! I started college about a month and a half ago so my system has been a bit out of whack so this might be good to try!
    Great post and great blog! :)
