TEAVANA is my new favorite store. I love the colors on their wall of tins. I could spend all day wafting every single tin. I really like the taste and results (so far) of the tea also. I do not like the hefty price tag, but what a girl won't do to
What I am currently drinking:
Monkey Picked Oolong. I really like the taste of this. It is a mild tea. It is supposed to be good for weight loss, digestion, skin, and teeth. I started drinking it in July, and noticed a difference with the first cup. It made me feel slightly warm, and very hungry within minutes of consuming it. It also made me even more regular, if you know what I mean. I really do think it keeps my metabolism running a little faster. That said, it does not make me feel jittery or strange. It also lowered my blood sugar levels immediately. I really think part of the reason I maintained my weight in July was this tea.
Golden Monkey Black Tea and Yaun Dynasty Golden Tips Black Tea. This is what they suggested for lowering my cholesterol. It is a harsher tea...almost a little bitter. I am mixing it with my oolong, but when it runs out I don't think I will get more.
I bought the Teavana Perfect Tea Maker. It diffuses the tea and empties right into my cup. I usually drink three 16 ounce mugs a day. Straight up with nothing added. I also reuse the same tea five times to stretch it as long as possible, and to help lesson the caffeine.
My reboot juicing is going well. Today is day 15. I am really looking forward to introducing solid veggies and fruits again on Thursday. REALLY. I do not know if I could EVER do this for 60 days. I am consistently longing for an avocado, so I am guessing maybe this means my body would like a little healthy fat. I will try to post a recap after my juice feast/reboot is over.
