Flat Tummy Tea is a two-step herbal detox claiming to cleanse your system, stimulate digestion and reduce bloating. I posted a review about Flat Tummy Tea a few months ago and thought I'd do a comparison to another natural teatox program, SkinnyMint. This 28 day, two-step teatox is designed to kick start a healthy lifestyle, increase your energy levels and naturally cleanse your body. Basically, both teas make the same claims, but in different words. I'm not gonna get into the ingredient details for each tea, cause I'd be writing for days, but I will give you a quick review and my personal thoughts.
Both Teas work! Combined with healthy eating habits and just a little exercise, you will look and feel better. Tea detoxing is no weight-loss miracle, just an addition to your healthy lifestyle. Tea in general is really good for you. I am partial to green tea and recently read a post about tea detoxing compared to simply drinking green tea. I followed their suggestion, drank five cups of green tea a day (no teatox) and had great results. I didn't loose weight, but my stomach was much less bloated. If teatoxing is not for you, I suggest green tea after every meal. It increases your metabolic rate 4 to 5 percent and is an excellent source of antioxidants.
What is similar about these two detox programs? They both contain green tea and other natural diuretic ingredients. Flat Tummy Tea 'Activate' should be consumed every morning and 'Cleanse' every third evening. SkinnyMint 'Morning Boost' should also be consumed every morning and 'Night Cleanse' every second night. Both have a mild laxative effect and reduce bloating. Both morning teas contain caffeine and thus your energy levels increase!
What's different? Flat Tummy Tea is a loose tea in resealable packets. You can use a tea defuser - I am partial to individual tea filters (less to clean). Either way, this is an additional cost. I like that SkinnyMint comes in individual tea bags (also in resealable packets), each with a tag 'Morning Boost' or Night Cleanse'. As far as taste goes, SkinnyMint is much better. The Morning Boost has a fruity flavor and the Night cleanse has notes of lemongrass, ginger and orange.
Not that this matters, but the Flat Tummy Tea comes with a small zipped case (great for travel). My SkinnyMint purchase came with an 'insert your own photo here' fridge magnet. I guess it's for inspiration and I suppose it would make a cute Instagram. Oh and it will bring social media attention to SkinnyMint!
A two week pack of Flat Tummy Tea currently retails for €28.28 and a SkinnyMint 14 day teatox for €24.90. Not much difference there, but you will have to purchase a defuser or filters for the Flat Tummy Tea.
