Fat Blasting Tea

I try to minimize my caffeine consumption as it can wreak havoc on your adrenal glands, sleep and skin after all caffeine is a stimulant. However there are some exceptions in my Resources section you may have noticed I recommend doMatcha tea. Matcha tea is technically a green tea but it yields a sweeter taste being grown in the shade. Thanks to Steph at Epic Beauty Guide I actually tried the doMatcha brand and have been so pleased. Lucky for you I am sharing a link to Steph’s awesome Tasty Green Drink and sharing my fat blasting tea.

Beside matcha tea tasting better than regular green tea it also has amazing anti-aging benefits (both for your health and beauty) – read some studies below:

Stephanie from Epic Beauty Guide shared this info on her site  “ In 2003, researchers at Uni­ver­sity of Col­orado deter­mined that the “con­cen­tra­tion of epi­gal­lo­cat­e­chin gal­late (EGCG) avail­able from drink­ing matcha is 137 times greater than the amount of EGCG avail­able from China Green Tips green tea, and at least three times higher than the largest lit­er­a­ture value for other green teas”

There are 3 teas I drink: doMatcha, Yogi Chai Rooibos (all rooibos tea is caffeine free) and organic oolong tea (oolong is a white tea which has less caffeine than black tea and oolong has been shown to burn belly fat)

Oolong tea increases energy metabolism

Matcha tea lowers Cholesterol

Matcha tea has a calming effect on stress

Designed For Detox’s Fat Blasting Tea:

8 oz/1 cup of filtered water (I have an Environmental Water Systems faucet filtration system)

1 Organic Oolong tea bag (I recommend Prince of Peace brand)

1 Teaspoon of doMatcha green tea

  • In a pot bring water to a boil add your oolong tea bag
  • Steep for 5-6 minutes 
  • Then put the tea in the freezer to chill for 20 minutes
  • Then place 1 teaspoon of matcha in a canning jar (you could use a drinking glass)
  • Pour the cooled brewed tea into the jar 
  • Then secure the lid, shake a few times and either add ice or stir with lots of ice in a glass.

I usually make this before bed for the next day or first thing in the morning for the afternoon. I love it icy, cold so I let it chill that long, although if your pressed for time just add some ice and stir 🙂

– Note for those used to sweet teas with lots of sugar you will take adjusting to this as its not sweet at all, in fact its more earthy tasting (in a good way) but if you need a little sweetener add some liquid stevia or some raw, organic honey.
