The packaging of the product is super pretty and reading the product description really establishes a warm relationship with you and the tea already. I was given this tiny tea from their body range and it comes with 42 tea bags to be taken 3 times a day, 30 minutes before or after each meal.
YourTea is all about keeping you healthy! Here is how their mantra goes:

Created by Aussies and loved worldwide, our organic fusions will soothe the soul and massage your palette.

The instructions state to place one tea bag in boiling water for 5-7 minutes and to take it 30 minutes before or after a meal, preferably on an empty stomach. They also mentioned twice daily over here so I guess it depends on how much of the effect you want to see in your body. I might do once or twice daily, depending on how strong the tea is for me.
The main ingredients to this tea are oolong tea, sicklepod senna seed, lotus leaf and hawthorn berry. It may sound weird but here's what it promises to do:
My intricately balanced herbal blend will nourish and cleanse your digestive system, providing it the support it needs to replenish and restore back to its natural state. This cleanse will assist with reducing weight, easing bloating, increasing digestion functionality, improving skin clarity, increasing energy levels and alleviate issues associated with food intolerances. Formulated with Chinese medicine herbs and based upon Chinese medicinal principles, TinyTea is the only herbal cleanse on the market that does not produce a laxative effect.
I do not need the weight loss part but I definitely need and appreciate the other effects that aid in digestion. I've always had bloating problems that gave me difficulty in consuming my meals because I just didn't feel hungry or like eating. I also look forward to having clearer skin and more energy to conquer school and busy days! However, if you are into weight loss, there are lots of reviews that have shown visible results. You can check it out under the reviews section of the website. You might also be interested in the eating plan and healthy tips to maintain your weight and stay healthy after all the good things the tea has done for your body.
If you would like to know more about YourTea, be sure to get onto their website and check out their FAQs and products. Also you can follow them on all their social media - Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr. They have a wide range of products including a mood range to elevate your moods. I am so interested in the Sleep Tea which is supposed to help sedate your mind. Those would come in handy when insomnia and un-sleepy days come by. YourTea also donates to charity so do support them!
I will be writing a new post or adding on to this one after I've tried the tea. I'll be sure to let you know all the good and bad stuff that I faced with this product. I am looking forward to clearer skin and a better digestive system so I'll let you know if it works! Do bear in mind that everyone's body is different and a different reaction is normal. However, if anything severe does happen then you should discontinue use and consult a doctor.
Update (4 Oct 2014): I've had a few cups of tea and it tastes alright. It's got a strong oolong or herbal taste that I do not mind. Also, one tea bag can be used for about 2 cups of tea and if you do not want to waste the teabag, there are actually lots of things you can do with a teabag: read here. Great for tired eyes, skin, hair or even for doing art. The tea has definitely helped reduce bloating for me. Whenever I feel like my food isn't digesting well, I pop one of this in a cup of water and start sipping. I don't necessarily take it half an hour before or after my meal because weight loss isn't my thing. My skin has been looking a lot clearer and I don't even need to apply overnight treatment on pimples for some nights because my face is clear of zits. I definitely love this tea for these benefits I have gotten. I've also seen many good reviews for weight loss so you should give this tea a try if you are looking to get the benefits listed here!
