Hey all, a few days I posted about starting the Queen B Tea Routine for an overall healthier lifestyle. I figure I start at the beginning of the week because we all like to start fresh each week, right? So here I go!
Here is the info found on the B-Tox Tea Weight Management label.
Queen B N14 B-Tox Tea is created from the highest quality ingredients. Its carefully selected ingredients have nutritional benefits to assist in weight management whilst enhancing overall wellbeing.
Recommendations: Before you begin your B-Tox take photos of your body from the front, back and side. Once you complete your B-Tox, Take the same shots again and compare the results! We would love to share your B-Tox journey with you, so feel free to send your results to us at email@example.com (you may stay anonymous when doing this).
Directions: Steep 1 teabag in a cup with 200ml of boiling water for up to 8 minutes. You may use a strainer or infuser, or you may consume the loose tealeaves. Recommend 1 cup each night befoer bed, (effects occur 12 hours after drinking tea).
Ingredients: Cassia angustifolia dry leaf, crataegus pinnatifida fruit, alisma orientale tuber, plantago asiatica seed, nelumbium speciosum leaf, Hordeum vulgare fruit*, citrus aurantifolia fruit and cassia tora seed. *contains gluten.
I can tell you I was surprised when the directions said to steep up to 8 minutes. I purchased this tea a few years ago and it was so potent, that the directions stated to steep up to one minute. My guess is that they changed the ingrediants or the potentcy for their customers. To me, it smells the same but the taste is not as strong (from what I remember). I steeped the tea bag on top of a strainer for about five minutes. We shall see how these next two weeks go!
I have decided to try the complete Queen B Health Pack, found on the Queen B Official website. I want to start including healthier drink options into my diet and I thought a daily tea would be a great way to start! The description of each tea and steps were taken from the website.
This pack includes:

NIGHT: Tea that aids in weight management, digestion, increasing the metabolic rate and suppressing appetite.
Day 15 -16: Rest

I have bought and tried the B-Tox Tea before. Because it is coming from Australia (then to Hawaii) it took close to a month to get to me. It comes in tea bags with no strings. The directions are to steep it in hot water for up to one minute. You may have to try steeping it for 30 seconds in your first attempt because it can get very potent.
The first time I tried it, I steeped it for one minute, drank the whole tea. The next morning, I was running to the bathroom constantly. After I got used to the tea, I would only go to the bathroom twice and I was good for the day. I’ll give you all an update after I finish my first step of the cleanse.
Forget about the Unicorn and Dragon fraps. Those fads are going extinct. Stick with the real Dragon, Dragonfruit that is.
Also known as Pitaya, Dragonfruit can bring lots of health benefits (see poster below). Natural flavors and a beautiful bright color, my favorite way to consume this Dragon is in a fruit bowl.
Locally, Hawaii has a bunch of places to satisfy your Dragonfruit craving. But if you are nowhere near a local smoothie place, your nearest Jamba Juice should be there for you too.
My favorite place to get a fruit bowl of any kind is Jewel or Juice located in Kaimuki and Kailua on Oahu. HICravings is another great place for fruit bowls with awesome topping. I think I need to make a trip soon!
Please do yourself a favor and go for the real Dragon!
