Tea Time

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 get skinny be healthy.
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.

Wow, I've never heard of Teavana - thought those were paint swatches at first! ;) LOVE those colours! Tea is so yummy, eh? I have a weight loss tea also - I haven't noticed it doing anything for me except helping me to avoid other stuff, like chocolate! ;)

You are so lucky! My daughter got me a small bag of white tea from Teavana for my birthday. It is fabulous! There is a store in Memphis, but not where we live.
