What is Weight Loss Tea

Weight loss tea is a fat burning drink filled with metabolism boosting ingredients. It helps you lose weight fast, and is a great alternative to sodas and artificially sweetened drinks.

By activating your metabolism, you’ll have more energy and your body will burn fat faster. And you can increase your metabolism with both exercise, and by ingesting the right foods. That’s where this green tea detox drink comes in.

Weight loss tea is a fat burning drink filled with metabolism boosting ingredients.

Fat burning ingredients for this homemade tea for weight loss include citrus, green tea. And I added in some bloat reducing ingredients like watermelon, mint and cucumber to help reduce tummy fat and bloat fast.

So you get both metabolism boosting qualities, as well as bloat reducing in these yummy homemade tea recipes.

When Should you Drink Detox Tea?

You can drink this fat burning tea anytime of the day. But the best time of the day to consume it is first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.

Start your day right, have a glass of this detox tea first thing in the morning, before you put anything into your stomach.

I like to make a pitcher of homemade detox tea before bed, then when I wake up in the morning I have a glass of it before I put anything (even coffee!) into may stomach. Then I drink it throughout the day when I want a tasty treat.
