This will lighten your wallet, but not too much else,
This review is from: Cho-Yung Weight Loss Tea - 30 Tea Bags (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)Oddly, I feel a little bit blessed. Having read other reviews I was a tad nervous about the effects as some seem to have had quite nasty side-effects from drinking this weight loss tea but those have passed me by. Unfortunately, I think the claimed the benefits have largely passed me by too as I can't say I've shifted more weight than I would have expected to anyway! I confess though, I've never had more than one mug per day (the instructions say "up to two per day maximum") but after reading what everyone else has written I didn't want to chance it.
The instructions also say to leave the tea bag in hot water for 5 minutes before removing and I would stick to this advice as I ignored it at first and after about 12 minutes I returned, stirred my drink and went to remove the bag and it split; it's not made out of the same robust stuff that standard tea bags are made from. So far I've had 3 of them split for different reasons.
As for the taste, it's pretty mild (even letting it brew for 12 mins) and it needs only half as much sweetening as standard tea and in this regard it's pleasant enough, however, that's not the real reason it's bought but as a weight loss supplement and at £1+ per bag the expectations are that it ought to be pretty effective, but it's not.
Overall, I think it's had a slightly beneficial effect but not enough to justify the high price tag.
