This is SOOOO long overdue and so let’s get an apology out of the way for that before we even start! I am so sorry to keep you waiting so long! Now that we have that taken care of let’s deal with what you all came here for! In November I started a 4-week teatox program that I had found online. Now I am no stranger to doing a teatox, or drinking tea in general (we may or may not have a cupboard in our house that looks like a tea store when you open it!) but I had heard from a few sources about this brand and decided to give it a go..
Another point that I should just get out of the way right now is that usually when you are doing a teatox you should make an effort to eat as clean as possible (Try my Roasted Pepper & Tomato Soup, Zucchini/Tomato/Feta Bake, or Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Bowls!) drink lots of water (and tea!), and either up your workouts or maintain a steady schedule (sidenote: it’s a great time to try a new activity! Read about my first Adventure Challenge when I tried out wall climbing!).. and I can openly and honestly say that NONE of that happened while I was on this teatox! I know, I know, enough with the excuses, but it WAAASSSSS the beginning of the busy holiday season and life was just crazy.. I worked out at home (or with my nephew) when I could find a few minutes here or there, and I ate what I could, when I could and if it was good for me then it was just an added bonus to being something to put into my stomach! We all have times like this… right?!!
The tea that I chose for this teatox was Flat Tummy Tea (4-week fab). Like I said before, I had heard about this tea from a few sources and after sitting at my computer hmmm’ing and haww’ingz away, wondering if it was a tad ridiculous that I was ordering tea from Australia and having it shipped across the world just so I could rid myself of the food baby that had seemed to attach itself to me! Who are we kidding though, I would do almost anything to rid myself of that! So I ordered the damn tea, and I waited and waaaited (patiently).. and finally about a week later my tea arrived! It was a little crumbly in the package when I opened it up, and not as “leafy” as I was expecting, but it IS tea, and it diiiiiid just get shipped from across the world so I cut them a break on that one 😉
I started the very next morning. The first thing that I absolutely loved about this tea was that once it is brewed, you can drink it right away, while it’s still warm! Now, this seems silly to be so excited about, but some teatox’s that I have done in the past you brew the tea and have to wait for it to cool before you can drink it.. quite honestly, that gets under my skin! When you live half the year surrounded by snowbanks as tall as your car, icy roads, and disgustingly cold temperatures you just don’t want to start your day with cold tea. Sorry, but you just don’t!.. So here I was on day one with my WARM cup of tea.. and down the hatch it went!. I started each day out with the daily tea for the full 4 weeks (even had a little extra at the end to get one extra cup out of it!) It was delicious.. the flavor was nice and light. It gave me a nice little boost of energy to help me get through my day without sending me overboard with a jittery vibe and shaky hands! (Yes! Certain caffeine has done this to me before!) They tell you that this tea may increase bathroom visits and I did find that this happened, but it was not in the way that hits you in the face and sends you running in a panic to find the closest bathroom around! So, you drink the tea each morning, and they give you a different tea to drink every second night for the first week and every third night thereafter. I loved this tea even more than the daytime tea. The flavor was nice and light like the day time tea, and it didn’t leave a weird aftertaste in your mouth like others have before. I won’t go into any details, but this nighttime tea will help you get through your morning routine with ease and I definitely felt better throughout the day.
By the time I was done my tea I had lost about 5-7 lbs. I say “about” because I really didn’t pay all that much attention to my weight before I started. I felt really good, and all cleaned out! I would recommend Flat Tummy Tea to anyone who is looking for a product to help them rid of their water weight food babies.. or as some people call it.. beat the bloat. Seriously, it works. So here is something you could do!..Head over to their website found here, http://www.flattummytea.com , pick some up for yourself, and get back to me with your thoughts on it!.. oh! and do not forget to sign up with your email so that you can stay up to date with everything going on at missbhay.com!

Hi, thank you for the review. Do you still drink this tea? Did you find once you stopped drinking it your gained the weight back?
Hi there! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I do still drink this tea on a regular basis. I have found that when I take a break from drinking it, if I let my diet and exercise slide, I do tend to feel bloated again. But, I keep in mind that while this is an aid to flattening my tummy, and feeling good.. It is not a long term weight loss solution. So as long as I keep up with eating well, and getting regular exercise I don’t have an issue. And when I do let my diet slide, I just get back on my schedule with the tea, and I am feeling good again!
Thank you so much for your quick reply. You are right, this is not a product I would use to get rid of weight/bloat, but an aid to help the process. Thanks also for your honesty as it is always hard to believe if a product is safe when the only source is online.
I hear ya! It’s hard to trust the internet sometimes! I hope that it helps you feel wonderful! Thanks again for stopping by my blog!
How often can you do teatoxes? I’ve never don’t one and am confused at what happens after? a
Above you said you still drink it.. How often?
Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I don’t really have a normal schedule for a teatox because I drink tea on the reg. But for instance, I will do a four week cycle of the flat tummy tea.. Then I will order another pack, and because I live in Canada and can take a few weeks to come, I drink other teas in the mean time.. Then when it comes I do the cycle of it.. So I would say it’s probably about a month on, month off.. Unless I have an event coming up, then I drink it everyday!
Sorry to sound so crude but is it running to the toilet for a number 1 or 2? I’m worried if I drink it whilst at work!!
Haha! No worries! No questions are off limits when it comes to tea!.. I find that this tea helps with going to the bathroom in the morning before work.. Once I am going about my day, I do notice an increase in pee breaks, but you don’t get the same effect as a laxative.. With the.. 😳 💩 GOTTA GO!!
Hello! I started this tea about a week or two ago and so far so good except (sorry this might be a little tmi) I noticed yesterday that my stool is green. Is that normal with a teatox?
Hi, I’m new to your blog.! I was wondering if u had any recommendations for a good teatox or detox that is actually good for weight loss.? Thanks
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I am not at home (where I keep my trusty lists!).. But I will get back to you with some recommendations as soon as I can! Should be by the end of the week!
Thanks again for stopping by my blog! I truly appreciate every visitor that I get! 🙂
I’d also love to hear your suggestions for a teatox for actual weight loss.

Unfortunately a teatox alone isn’t going to give you actual weight loss. A teatox is designed to flush toxins and rid of water weight, not to burn fat. Only good old fashion exercise and healthy eating will do that!
Hi! Does this tea works if I don’t do exercises or watch my meal? My weight is 45kg but I have a really huge tummy. It’s really frustrating when you can fit into jeans from legs and then when it comes to your tummy, it didn’t fit. My tummy is crazy and it’s not flat. My weight is fine just that my tummy. I really want to flatten it.. Does it works with the tea? While not doing any exercises plus not watch over my meals? Really hope to hear from you.. Thank you!
Hello! Thank you for stopping by! Unfortunately there is no miracle cure when it comes to weight loss or getting toned up! Good old fashion exercise and healthy eating will get you those results! If there were a magic pill or magic tea, the whole world would be skinny!

Is Flat tummy tea better than Iaso tea?
I have not tried that tea before, so I’m not quite sure about that!
Hi! I just started this cleanse yesterday. Did you find it gave you a bit of a stomachache when you first started? I’m also on my period so I can’t tell if it is cramps or an ache from the tea.
Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! You may find that your stomach does feel a bit different if it is your first time drinking it, but it normally will go away once your body adjusts. I would think it is more due to your cycle. If you have any issues, I would contact FTT, but I think you should be okay!
This is directly off their site.. If it hasn’t passed by now, I would stop drinking it.

My stomach gets so bloated that some days I look 4-5 months pregnant and I’m not 😔 will this help with extreme bloating? I have irritable bowel syndrome. Will this help?
Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog! This tea does help to eliminate bloat and flatten your stomach, however when it comes to a medical condition it is best to check with FTT themselves, and/or your family physician to ensure its correct for you!! Happy sipping!
Hi Kathy! Sorry I am just getting caught up now! I do know that it helps with bloating, however for specific Conditions it will be best to contact flat tummy tea directly! I don’t want to tell you the wrong thing and I am in now way associated with them. Just a happy customer!
How long did it take to see some results drinking the tea
I noticed results after the first few days!
About two days for myself
Your review was well received. Thank you so much for a purely honest and detailed feedback. It is discouraging often with so many new items receiving high acclaim so quickly its unsettling not knowing whos review to trust on social media. Flattummytea is having a 20% sale tonight. Going to order a bag now! Thanks!
Hope you love it as much as I do! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I really appreciate each visitor that takes time to stop by!
hi …. if you have a cold and drinking medication for it….can you drink the tea???
Your best bet is to contact Flat Tummy area or your family physician to find that out! Sorry, I don’t know the ins and outs of it when it comes to different medications and don’t want to tell you the wrong thing!
Hello, did you use honey or any sweetner? I’m not a big tea fan but can drink it with a small amount (1.5tsp) of local honey. I’m concerned abt it affecting the results.
Hi! No, I don’t add anything to the tea. Don’t be afraid to try it just as it is, you may be surprised by the flavour it has! I’m not too sure if adding anything would affect the results or not.. That would be a question for FTT… Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Does flat tummy tea help during your menstrual cycle? That is when I look 5 months pregnant.
I find that it does!
Hi, this is my 2nd week drinking the tea, I noticed rashes all over my body, do I stop
This is my 2nd week and I notice rashes all over my body, do I stop d tea
Hello, Yes, I would recommend stopping drinking the tea, and contacting Flat Tummy Tea as I do not work for them. I would probably see a doctor also..Well wishes!
I almost didn’t check this website out however I’m happy I did. That it is pretty good in comparison to numerous others I’ve found. I’m going certainly be back.
