This is my new best friend :lol:

I enjoy drinking it and looked up all the health benefits of it online and was quite shocked at what I read! I've always says that it makes me feel less bloated, but I never thought it was a natural slimming aid.
Been having a few cups a day this week, just replacing my usual cups of tea with it, as well as eating healthily and have really noticed a difference since last weekend. I feel less bloated and notice I feel fuller for longer too.
Definitely recommend it! :D

That's great you're noticing the benefits from it. Do you drink the caffiene or caffiene free version? I used to drink it k few years ago but i found it brought me out in spots. I've suffered with occasional bad skin since i was about 21 for which i take antibiotics for now. Sometimes i think maybe it was all the antioxidants bringing all the bad stuff out but i carried on with it but it didn't seem to improve so i stopped drinking it. I wonder if i should try it again. I like drinking redbush tea

I love peppermint tea, started drinking it when i had a tummy upset, i probably have 2 cups a day . It has loads of benefits too :)

Most green teas ive tried are a little too bitter for me...

I don't think you can, I might be wrong but I imagine it would taste a bit odd :lol:
Have you tried the tetley version? I thought that was the best out of them all mind.

I'm not sure I can describe it really, i guess it's refreshing, and not fruity, hate fruity teas, but you can get it from Tetley, its proper name is Rooibos. I drink it without milk but you can do either.

This description comes from Wikipedia:

Rooibos is becoming more popular in Western countries, particularly among health-conscious consumers, due to its high level of antioxidants such as aspalathin[3] and nothofagin, its lack of caffeine, and its low tannin levels compared to fully oxidized black tea or unoxidized green tea leaves.[4] Rooibos also contains a number of phenolic compounds, including flavanols, flavones, flavanones,
and dihydrochalcones.[5]

yummy lol
