Notice that I say “aid” in weight loss. Any tea that purports to be a magic solution is probably A) too good to be true, or B) just a laxative. This being said, I recently did a really great teatox and thought it would be cool to look into some other teas that are purported to aid in weight loss.

I’ve been aware of this kind of tea for years, and have yet to say it correctly (I think it’s like drawing out the word “poor”, but adding stress before the r… or something). This tea has enzyme-activating ingredients that help shrink fat tissue, also possibly reduces cholesterol, although more studies need to be done.
