Tiny Tea

Tiny Tea is a range of tea, brand YourTea®, announced by the latter as a real slimming cure. The before / after pictures of the more and more numerous drinkers of this "miraculous" tea would almost make us want to take a box within a minute.

However, there is no real medical evidence regarding the slimming effects of this tea. But the scale of the phenomenon deserves a small autopsy and a study a little deeper to understand its success.

After reading the composition, nothing very innovative. A list of plants, commonly used in Chinese medicine, written in the native language, for the exotic side.

So, in terms of ingredients, we find in Tiny tea:

  • oolong tea, which would improve digestion;
  • Cassia seeds, which are known to have lubricating properties on the intestines;
  • lotus leaves, he ye, appreciated by his followers for their refreshing and invigorating properties and also for their slimming virtues;
  • hawthorn berries, shan zha, which would strengthen the circulatory functions;
  • radish seeds, lai fu zi, which would promote digestion;
  • germinated seeds of barley, may ya, and pericarp of tangerine, chen pi, which would have virtues of digestive regulator.

It must be recognized that these plants, combined together, are a good ally for improved metabolism.

The principle is to drink a cup of Tiny Tea, 30 minutes before each meal, and this for 14 or 28 days, to choose. A solution, at first glance, little constraining, compared to the results that the brand promises us.
