Bootea, many people know this company for its famous TeaTox. They are a health and weight loss company that promotes a balanced healthy lifestyle all their products contain natural ingrediants. TOO many people think of there products as a WEIGHT LOSS product! It is SO important to know and not to get mislead by all the amazing before and after pictures and other peoples results, they did NOT get them by simply exchanging the usual PG tips for the Bootea Teatox!
Now that we have got that out of the way I am going to go straight into it, so I have purchased the teatox a couple of times before so I know what to expect and the fact that I have ordered it again and again proves that I LOVE it! I went onto the Bootea website planning to buy myself the 28 Day Teatox, while I was there I noticed they had a NEW range of products put togther and they were sold as the Weight Loss Bundle and it was on offer! So I thought it would be a good chance for me to try out some of their other products and it would help with my weight loss which is proving to be so hard at the moment cravings are getting the better of me and the words WORK OUT bring out the slug in me! I ordered this on Wednesday and they arrived by Friday, if I had ordered before 7pm they would have arrived the next day!! the delivery has always been super fast and they inform you about everything the second you checkout! Brilliant service! The bundle contained 4 products including the Bootea shaker bottle and their meal plan. The usual price is £70.95, but it is on sale at the moment for £49.99! Holland and Barret sell items from the Bootea range and the teas are always on offer, so it would be worth checking them out their, however some of the items are cheaper on the actual website so its worth looking around, Boots also stock the tea however the tea from there is laxative free, which pretty much is the main thing about this tea which helps detoxify so it would be like buying a normal herbal tea, but if that is what you want then you can buy it from their.
I started using the products, so far I have used each one so I thought I can give you a first impression along with a bit about each product and hopefully when I finish the whole detox I will give you an update on how it went.
14 Day Teatox
The Teatox comes with 14 day tea bags and 7 night ones, so you have one morning tea every morning and the night tea every other night, so you have one the first night then miss the second night then have it the third night and so on! The morning tea gives you the extra boost you need in the morning, some days I have woken up feeling so slugish, this tea sorted that right out!
contains: Chinese Oolong tea, Mate leaves, ginger root, fennel seeds, lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves, Nettle leaves.
The tea smells earthy and tastes alright I wouldn’t say it tastes lovely but I wouldn’t say it tastes disgusting, it is not bad and its okay to drink, I’ve had worse! (that’s one thing everyone has an issue with when trying a new detox tea).
Contains: Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice root, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian roots, Psyllium seeds.
This tea smells disgusting, I am not going to sugar coat it! It smells horrible! Once it has been made the smell slightly goes away but it doesn’t taste as good as the morning one, although after the second or third night of having it you get used to the taste. The night tea is the one with the laxative effect, now this is another concern a lot of people have before buying this tea, it is not a huge issue honestly I think its the best part, you drink the night time tea wake up in the morning and you really ‘HAVE TO GO’ and after that your body feels cleansed and ready for the day! It only happens once, according to Bootea the effect takes place 8 hours after you have the tea which is about right.
The teas alone cost £19.99 for the 14 day teatox and £37.99 for the 28 day teatox, the the 28 day one is currently on offer too for £34.99!
Bootea Little Oats
Contains: Dried fruit, instant porridge oats, seeds, sweetner and is rich in fibre (these are not the full ingredients)
This is something I haven’t tried from the Bootea range and to be honest if I didn’t purchase the bundle I would never of bought this which would be a shame as I really like it so far! I think I tried porridge oats once in my life with water and they were DISGUSTING! I can not have porridge oats with water, I have always had them with milk so when I saw that this was made with water I was a bit hesitant but I thought I would give it a go anyway, so it comes with a scoop, you need one scoop and 125ml of water, add it together and microwave it for 30 seconds, mix it and microwave again for another 30 seconds and its done! I found it to be very easy to make!! I have to say, this is the best porridge I have ever had…made with water of course, it tasted so creamy as if it was made with water! It was very filling considering I used a small amount, which I thought would be less! The pack contains 14 servings, so I will use it for the next 14 days, I think I won’t always have it for breakfast, I can’t have the same thing for breakfast every single day I quickly get bored!
The Little Oats cost £9.99 alone. which is quite expensive!
Bootea Chocolate Shake
High in Protein, Green Tea Extracts, Natural flavoring
This one I was MOST excited about, I’ve been meaning to buy a protein shake for a while now, so this was perfect for me to try, now first I just want to say I have never tried one before so I didn’t know what to expect. The shale is meant to be taken 1-2 times a day, best after working out, it comes with a scoop so its easy to make, this is also another product made with water or milk, so I tried it with water first as that’s the best way to have it. I used the cup that came in the bundle, I filled it up to the 400 mark with water, and added one scoop of the shake and shook it! I found the shake mixed easily and I couldn’t see any lumps, I had some of it and did not like it AT ALL! It ad the weirdest taste ever like helloo its meant to be a chocolate shake! It tasted like a very very sweet green tea, I cannot stand cold green tea it makes me feel sick! I took another sip or two I thought I could get used to it, I couldn’t finish it, i just threw it away and re made it with milk! This time it was a lot better! the whole weird taste had gone, it tasted more like a chocolate milkshake! the slight weird after taste was still there but it quickly went! I was so relieved it tasted better with milk, I don’t think I would of had the rest!
The Bootea Shake alone costs £23.99 and comes in three different flavours; Chocolate, Vanilla and Banana.
Well the name pretty much sums up what it is, these multivitamins that ensure your body is getting the RDA (recommended daily allowance) of all the essential vitamins and nutrients that your body needs, these are key when losing weight as they will help keep your body healthy, (THIS IS NOT A REPLACEMENT FOR FOOD). The pack contains sixty capsules and you take two a day, now these capsules aren’t your average paracetamol sized capsuled, they are HUGE! Well to me they looked huge, I can feel them going down my throat, feels a little sickening but nothing too bad!
The Bootea Multivits alone cost £11.99.
I also received a meal plan and the Bootea Shaker, both are great! The shaker is sturdy and doesn’t leak when making the shake. The meal plan has a range of meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is also full of little tips and information about a weight loss plan I think its a great little extra! The shaker alone costs £4.99.
So far, I am liking most of the products in this bundle, if I could change some things I think I would of got a different flavor milkshake, other than that it is all good so far! I can’t wait to use these and get my end result in two weeks, I will be doing an updated review after the two weeks finish! Have any of you tried any of the items from the Bootea range, if so leave a comment and let me know what you thought about them!
