A comparison of slimming teas: how to choose the right one?

Origin of slimming teas

Ancient origins: traditional Chinese plant-based medicine

In actual fact, most slimming teas are not only teas, but rather infusions of several plants (including teas), the origins of which lie in traditional Chinese medicine, or ‘natural’ medicine.


And this combining of plants, if done properly, is what may promote weight loss.

Whether green, white, oolong, Pu’Er or black, teas carry numerous benefits. They may act as antioxidants, appetite suppressants, drainers or toxin eliminators, as well as many other things. But it would be a slight exaggeration to say that teas have an effect on weight loss.

Rather, it is solely the combining of several plants which can create a real slimming tea which will then promote weight loss.

Traditional Chinese medicine makes use of more than 10000 different plants. This is why the actual combining of plants must be carried out by professionals with a thorough knowledge of the subject.

Today, these traditional Chinese techniques are often taken up by naturopaths, who are far more likely to be found in our countries than a professor of Chinese medicine!

Advice to help you choose the right slimming tea for you

Top tip 1:

Choose a slimming tea which contains more than five different plants. It must not only contain tea. It is the combination of these plants, in their specific amounts, which will help you in your path towards weight loss. The packaging should indicate clearly the types of plant and how much of each is contained in the tea. It’s vital to know what you will be consuming!


Top tip 2:

Top tip 2: Your slimming tea must have been created by a professional natural medicine practitioner, who practices either traditional Chinese medicine or naturopathy.


Rapid development and the birth of a new trend: teatox


Since 2012, with the appearance of brands such as SkinnyMeTea in Australia and also Happy Detox Tea in France, slimming teas have become part of a more general approach towards health and wellbeing. This has led to a boom in sales of such products. The fact that they are available to buy online has enabled them to reach a more global audience, and at a rapid pace. As a result, these infusions have expanded far beyond the original markets for traditional Chinese medicine and naturopathy, and have now reached a new audience.


Slimming teas and teatox regimes now convey a more modern, feminine and trendy image and are associated not only with health and wellbeing but also with fitness and overall maintenance of the body.

Teatox regimes give people greater control over their diet, promote physical activity and instil a greater feeling of calm in those who partake in them. They involve much more than simply drinking an infusion; they help with weight loss but also with creating a sense of wellbeing, both mental and physical.



Teatoxes generally consist of two teas and an exercise programme, as well as nutritional advice.

One of the two teas is usually a detox tea (Morning cleanse tea or Morning detox tea) to be drunk first thing in the morning, while the second is a slimming tea (Evening cleanse tea) to be drunk before you go to sleep.

This combination of detox tea and slimming tea, paired with physical exercise and diet control, produces successful results amongst consumers, as can be seen from the many ‘before and after’ photos posted on social media.



Top tip 3:

Choose a slimming tea which comes with an exercise programme and nutritional advice. A slimming tea alone will not always will bring the results you hope for. But combined with some exercise and a balanced diet, it will help you obtain the results you want and, above all, an even greater dose of wellbeing!

Oolong tea : major ingredient of our Detox Tea

Geographical and historical origins of Oolong tea

Oolong tea also called Wulong tea is coming from Taiwan and Fujian region in China.

His name meant " Black Dragon " and comes from its shape and color. The way the leaves are rolled during the production recalls the legendary dragon.

Oolong tea probably appeared for the first time in Fujian region in China, more precisely in the area of Wuyi mountains, during the reign of the Qing Dynasty. It means at the end of 17th century or early 18th century. Specialists found some information about Oolong tea and its benefits in certain poems from that period.

Oolong tea production method

Oolong tea is produced during the months of April and May. The production follows the following steps :

The tea leaves are picked by hand

Depending on the desired quality, it will be picked more or less leaves. For very high-end teas, pickers will gently remove only the last leaf still rolled on itself. For the more traditional teas, it will be used up to 6 leaves (or even more sometimes). Taste and flavours are then very different and of course, productivity is not the same. That can explain the very high cost of some teas only made with buds.








The leaves are dried under the sun

Just after picking them, the tea leaves are exposed to the sun to make a first drying. Not to burn the leaves with a too strong sun, producers regularly protect them with a net, as you can see in the picture below.

The tea leaves are dried indoors, on trays

After spending a few hours in the sun, the leaves are spread on large willow trays. Drying will then continue from a few hours to a complete night. The leaves are then stored in a fairly well ventilated area protected from the sun.

The leaves are slightly broken to promote oxidation

One major step in the manufacture of tea is the oxidation. This step mainly explains the tea flavours and its color.
Oxidation occurs when the inner part of the leaf is in contact with air. To promote such contact, it is necessary to break the leaf.
It is therefore easy to understand that the more you break the leaf and left it in contact with air, more the tea is oxidized. More the tea is oxidized, more it is black. If the leaf is not broken and not in contact with air, it will not be oxidized. And we obtain white teas.
In the case of Oolong tea, oxidation depends on the producers ( from 15 % up to about 75%). In our case, oxidation is intermediate.

The leaves are dried in order to stop the oxidation

To stop the oxidation phenomenon, the tea leaves are then dried.


The leaves are then rolled and dried several times to give them their final form but also to permanently stop oxidation.

This operation can take place dozens of times. The photo below with the tea ball is specific to Oolong tea production. The steps for oolong tea production are slightly more numerous than in the case of a traditional teas.

The leaves are finally sorted to ensure quality

At the end of the process, the leaves are sorted but they can also be rolled manually to ensure a desired characteristic shape.

Oolong tea benefits

Oolong tea is particularly recognized in China but also in the rest of the world for its effects on digestion and for its ability to promote weight loss and thinness.

  Oolong tea is a strong antioxidant
  Oolong tea lowers Cholesterol
  Oolong tea promotes fat burning
  Oolong tea lowers sugar levels in the blood
  Oolong tea reduces stress and has a relaxing effect
 Oolong tea cuts hunger

Oolong Tea : Taste and flavour

Oolong tea gives rise to a blue/green liqueur with very characteristic aromas and flavours. It is a mild tea with flower aromas and sweet notes which can often remind caramel.
For your information, this tea is also quite low in caffeine.
Find Oolong tea in our  Detox teas Happy Detox Tea! As always, we want to offer you detox and slimming teas with taste and pleasant aromas. This is the main commitment of the Happy Detox Tea team.

For the record, note that the selected producer you can see in this article, is the one which tea had been selected to make a gift to Barack Obama during his last visit to China. It was then a Oolong Organic Fujian flavored with honey produced within the tea gardens. And I will not deny that it is excellent!

Launch of the Anti-Aging and Energy Boost teas from Happy Detox Tea

Anti-Aging tea Happy Detox Tea

The exercise programmes are suitable both for beginners and those more accustomed to doing sport: they offer daily 15-minute sessions of exercises that will work the main muscle groups and thus promote tonus and vitality, whilst also contributing to toning up the body.

These infusions have been created exclusively for Happy Detox Tea by a Chinese professor who is an expert in the tea from the town of Xiamen (Fujian – China).

7 Top-Ernährungstipps für einen gesunden Winter

Im Winter sind die Tage kürzer, das Wetter ist oft schlecht und der Urlaub fühlt sich immer viel zu weit weg an... Es gibt viele Faktoren, die uns dazu führen, Komfort in anderen Dingen zu suchen, und dabei bleibt unsere Ernährung oft auf der Strecke und wir nehmen ein paar Pfunde zu, die wir vor dem nächsten Frühling wieder verlieren müssen!

Es ist aber möglich, Erkältungen und Gewichtszunahmen zu vermeiden und stattdessen einen positiven Ausblick zu behalten und die Saison sogar zu genießen! Hier sind die besten 7 Ernährungstipps, denen du folgen solltest um einen gesunden Winter zu erleben.

Iss viel Obst, das reich an Vitamin C ist

Und wie praktisch, es ist sogar die Saison dieser Früchte! Orangen, Clementinen, Mandarinen, Zitronen, Kiwis – Egal was du dir aussuchst und egal ob du sie ist oder als Saft trinkst, genieße sie einfach!

Bei Säften solltest du sie natürlich selbst machen und direkt nach dem Pressen der Früchte trinken, ansonsten gehen viele der Vitamine verloren.

Durch Säfte kannst du sehr einfach bis zu vier Portionen Obst pro Tag zu dir nehmen. Du kannst auch einige exotische Früchte wie Mangos, Ananas oder Passionsfrucht dazu mischen. Sie sind köstlich, verbessern deine Laune und bringen ein bisschen Sonne in dein Leben!

Diese Früchte geben dir deine tägliche Dosis Vitamin C, mit der du die Erkältungen und Ermüdungserscheinungen des Winters vermeiden kannst.


Vitamine C et bien-etre

Iss Fisch, vor allem den mit viel Fett, um deine Dosis Vitamin D zu bekommen

Wir nennen Vitamin D oft das „Sonnenschein-Vitamin“, weil es in unseren Körpern durch Sonneneinstrahlung produziert wird. Wenn ultraviolette Strahlung (UVBs) unsere nackte Haut treffen, dann löst dies die Produktion von Vitamin D aus. Daher fehlt uns dieses Vitamin auch oft im Winter! Normalerweise liefert uns unsere Ernährung höchsten ein Drittel unseres Vitamin D-Bedarfs. Aber diese kleine Menge ist im Winter extrem wichtig!

Daher empfehlen wir dir, gekochten Lachs, eingelegten Hering, gekochte Makrele, Sardinen in Öl und sogar Austern zu essen. Wer es mag kann auch Dorschleber und dessen Öl zu sich nehmen, da diese besonders reich an Vitamin D sind. Wir empfehlen, dass du diese Art von Nahrungsmitteln mindestens 4 Mal pro Woche isst.


Falls dir diese Nahrungsmittel nicht schmecken könnte es nötig sein, einige Vitamin D-Präparate zu dir zu nehmen. Du kannst diesbezüglich auch deinen Arzt oder Apotheker fragen.

Iss reichlich saisonales Gemüse, um deinen Bedarf an Ballaststoffen, Vitaminen und Mineralstoffen zu decken

Die Natur hat ihren Job gut gemacht: Wintergemüse ist besonders reich an Ballaststoffen, Vitaminen und Mineralstoffen, die dein Körper während dieser Saison alle braucht!

Diese Dinge findest du im Winter in den Regalen:

- Wurzelgemüse : Von der traditionelleren orangen Karotte und seinen älteren gelben, violetten und weißen Cousins und den violetten oder goldenen Steckrüben und der roten Bette, bis zu weniger bekannten Gemüsesorten wie der Pastinake, der Kohlrübe und der Topinambur...

- Kohl in allen Formen, Größen und Farben!

- Nicht zu vergessen die leckeren Kürbisse und Butternusskürbise!

All diese köstlichen Gemüsesorten können in Suppen, Eintöpfen und Gemüsepfannen sowie auch gedämpft oder geschmort genossen werden. Einige von ihnen eignen sich auch zur Herstellungen von Detox-Säften!

Wir empfehlen dir, einige dieser Gemüsesorten zu jeder Mahlzeit zu essen: Mindestens zwei Arten pro Mahlzeit wird dich mit all den Ballaststoffen, Vitaminen und Mineralstoffen versorgen die du brauchst!

Ein toller Tipp ist, immer frische Produkte zu essen: Kein Essen aus Dosen, keine Fertiggerichte und keine Tiefkühlgerichte! Hochwertige, frische Nahrungsmittel zu kaufen dauert nicht länger und sie sind besser für dich, deine Familie, die Hersteller und den Planeten! Aber das weißt du wahrscheinlich bereits. Außerdem kann es viel Spaß machen, deinen Liebsten eine gute Mahlzeit zuzubereiten und einen Moment Entspannung zu genießen und die Probleme des Alltags dabei zu vergessen!

Deck deinen Bedarf an Ballaststoffen und Minderalien durch Vollkorngetreide

Vollkorngetreide ist toll für deine Verdauung und dein Herz. Zusammen mit getrocknetem Gemüse ist es vor allem für seinen Gehalt an Ballaststoffen bekannt, aber es enthält auch große Mengen an Mineralien, vor allem Zink.

Vollkorngetreide kann in alltäglichen Nahrungsmitteln wie Brot, Reis, Weizen und Quinoa gefunden werden. Stell auf jeden Fall sicher, dass es immer Vollkorn ist und verwechsle es nicht vermahlenen Körnern.


Nahrungsmittel aus Vollkorngetreide sind reich an Ballaststoffen und Mineralien und geben dir ein längeres Sättigungsgefühl. Wenn es draußen kalt ist und du daher Energie konservieren musst, vor allem um die richtige Körpertemperatur zu halten, dann sind diese kohlenhydratereichen Nahrungsmittel mit einem niedrigen glykämischen Index sogar noch wichtiger.

Wir empfehlen, dass du diese Arten von Nahrungsmitteln 3 bis 4 Mal die Woche konsumierst.


Decke deinen vegetarischen Proteinbedarf mit getrocknetem Gemüse (Hülsenfrüchte)

Getrocknetes Gemüse ist wichtiges, weil es besonders hohe Mengen an vegetarischem Protein, Ballaststoffen, Vitaminen und Mineralien und dabei wenig Fett enthält.

Die vegetarischen Proteine (außer Soja) haben oft nur geringe Mengen an Aminosäuren, daher ist es wichtig, Hülsenfrüchte zusätzlich zu Vollkorngetreide zu essen, damit dein Bedarf an Aminosäuren auf jeden Fall gedeckt wird.

Tatsächlich kann bereits ein Mangel an einer Aminosäure deine Proteinaufnahme insgesamt beeinträchtigen. Hülsenfrüchte wie Bohnen, Erbsen und Linsen sind reich an Lysin, einer Aminosäure die nicht in Getreide gefunden werden kann, die dagegen reich an Methionin sind. Wenn du daher beides konsumierst bekommst du alle essentiellen Aminosäuren.

Wir empfehlen, dass du diese Nahrungsmittel 3 bis 4 Mal in der Woche konsumierst.


Trink immer ausreichen Flüssigkeiten, um Erkältungen vorzubeugen

Wir denken eher im Sommer daran viel zu trinken weil es dann heiß ist, aber im Winter vergessen wir dies oft. Daher leiden viele Menschen im Winter an Dehydrierung, vor allem Kinder und ältere Menschen. Die trockenen Kälte ist einer der Hauptgründe dafür, aber Heizungen zuhause und auf der Arbeit können den selben Effekt haben.


Damit dein Körper so funktioniert wie er es soll ist Hydration essentiell. Unsere Körper bestehen zu 65% aus Wasser, und der Wassergehalt ist je nach Organ unterschiedlich. Das Blut besteht zu 83% aus Wasser; bei Fettgewebe sind es 10%. Das Gehirn hat 70% Wasser, genau wie die Muskeln. Wasser ist daher essentiell dafür, unsere physiologischen Funktionen aufrecht zu erhalten, vor allem weil wir es ständig verlieren. Wir fühlen uns bereits durstig, wenn wir nur 1% des Wassers in unserem Körper verlieren, und dies hat sofortige Auswirkungen auf unsere intellektuelle und physische Leistungsfähigkeit!

Daher empfehlen wir dir, ausreichend Säfte, Suppen und natürlich auch Tee zu trinken! Limitiere aber deinen Konsum an Kaffee und Alkohol!


Nutze den Winter als Möglichkeit, ein Detox-Programm anzufangen – und warum nicht gleich ein Tee-basiertes Detox?

Was genau ist eigentlich ein Detox-Programm? Dabei werden dem Körper Giftstoffe entzogen und er bekommt gleichzeitig Ruhe.

Der Ursprung des Detox kommt aus der Naturheilkunde. Tatsächlich werden bei einem Detox sämtliche Giftstoffe aus dem Körper geschwemmt, und das auf natürliche Art und Weise.

Dabei werden die Organe stimuliert, die Giftstoffe aus dem Körper befördern, so wie die Poren, die Leber, der Darm und die Nieren, damit der Körper komplett gereinigt werden kann.

Ein Detox auf Tee-Basis funktioniert langfristig und setzt dem Körper nicht zu sehr zu. Es ist ein sanftes Programm und extrem vorteilhaft für den Körper. Die Ursprünge kommen aus der traditionellen chinesischen Medizin.

Detox-Tee nutzt verschiedene Teile von Pflanzen, so wie Blätter, Holz, Rinde, Samen und Wurzeln. Diese Teile werden nach verschiedenen Klassifikationen gewählt, die über hunderte von Jahren von Professoren der chinesischen Medizin erstellt wurden.


Um die besten Resultate zu erhalten empfehlen wir, dass du ein Tee-Detox-Programm für mindestens 4 oder noch besser 8 Wochen verfolgst: Detox-Tee 4 oder 8 Wochen. .



Ein Detox auf Tee-Basis ist eines der besten Dinge, die du für deinen Körper tun kannst. Es ist nicht nur ein natürlicher Weg, Giftstoffe aus deinem Körper zu befördern, sondern fördert auch dein Wohlergehen und deine Vitalität und sorgt dafür, dass du fit bleibst!

Why you should start a detox regime as autumn approaches

Autumn and detox regimes

The concept of a detox regime is just as original as it is appealing in terms of the benefits it offers. A detox is one of the most natural ways of refreshing and restoring your body), leaving you slim, detoxified and glowing inside and out.

What exactly is a detox regime?

Today, detox regimes are extremely fashionable, especially in the USA. Indeed, almost all the big names in Hollywood are full of praise for them. The principle behind a detox regime is simple: to remove all the toxins found in the body, whilst giving the body a break at the same time.

Where do toxins come from, and how can we get rid of them?

The body can become clogged up and accumulate waste. Over time, waste products can harm and disrupt the functioning of the body. This can then have results such as fatigue, irritability, a dull complexion, hair loss, reduced resistance to infections, and various other problems which may have a serious impact on your health.

We may note that our diet has changed significantly over recent decades. Around 80% of the foods we eat every day are factory-produced, meaning everything is processed and, above all, made unnatural. These foods may contain ingredients which can be harmful to the body, such as acidifiers, colourings, pesticides or texturising agents.

Toxins may also be produced by the environment. We all know that the world we live in today is a polluted one, its atmosphere saturated with greenhouse gases. But that’s not all – tobacco and alcohol, as well as the consumption of certain medicaments, can also overload the body with toxins.

The origins of detox regimes lie in the principles of naturopathy. Indeed, a detox gets rid of all that is toxic and unnatural in the body, and does so in a natural way.

The most important thing to do during a detox is to control one’s diet, favouring fruit, fresh vegetables and fluids. A detox both helps and stimulates the organs that deal with waste disposal, like the pores, the liver, the intestines and the kidneys, in order to get rid of the toxins found in the body.

What benefits can you expect from a detox regime, and why should you start one as autumn approaches?

The reason why detox regimes are enjoying huge popularity today is because many people have obtained noticeable results from them. After all, when you start a regime like this, you always expect to get benefits from it, don’t you? After following a detox programme for just a few days, you will find yourself feeling as if your body has been renewed and restored from the inside, and more alive than ever before.

A detox allows you to regain energy and to be more resistant to the stress you come up against on a daily basis. By following a detox regime, you will soon find yourself sleeping like a baby once more.

Studies show that the intestine contains hundreds of pathogens such as viruses and bacteria, amongst others. Our body does have a means of protecting itself, that is the gut. However, if the food we eat contains too much sugar, fat or omega 6, this may cause the intestine to deteriorate, as well as provoking inflammatory reactions. Because of this, the intestine is vulnerable. The pathogens migrate towards other systems in the body, and produce harmful effects which impact our health, such as allergies and urine infections.

By starting a detox, you can regain a healthy intestinal ecosystem. Your cells will regenerate in just a matter of days. With a detox regime, you will always get out of the right side of bed! The interaction between neurotransmitters like cortisol, dopamine and serotonin will ensure you are in a good mood every day. And your morale will never be low!

The benefits of a detox do not solely apply to the inside of the body. You can also notice visible exterior effects. A detox will enhance your appearance and give you a fairer, more glowing complexion. It may also help you get back in shape. For overweight individuals, a detox can bring quite remarkable weight loss results.

Our body has been designed to clean itself, but sometimes it can do with a little help. The key is to set off on the right foot before the start of the new season that awaits. Speaking of seasons, summer is coming to an end and autumn is knocking on the door. The effects of the sun on our whole body start to diminish and the days start to get shorter, which impacts our sleeping pattern. The new season also signifies stress and a return to greater activity. We also often find ourselves having to take on new tasks and responsibilities. This is why it’s so important to start a detox once summer is over and as autumn begins.

The main types of detox regime

There are a vast amount of different detox regimes to choose from. Generally, some are based mainly on making modifications to your diet, whilst others are based on manipulation of the body.

Here are a few examples of different detox regimes:


Raw food detoxes, which involve a diet of raw foods only. This type of regime relies solely on living nutrients and enzymes.
“Fasting” detoxes, where solid foods are replaced with liquid nutrients
Protein rich detoxes, with foods that are rich in animal proteins (less than 24 hours in duration)
Micronutrition detoxes, with dietary supplements
Fasciatherapy detoxes, to massage and relieve pain in fibrous body tissues
Osteopathic detoxes, involving visceral osteopathy manipulation.

How long does a detox regime last?

The length of a detox regime can vary a lot. It can vary depending on the effects you are expecting, and how well your body tolerates the regime, but will last between a minimum of 1 day and 60 days at the very most. Some people are after a very quick programme that will last only a few days; others wish to follow a regime at a more leisurely pace, for one or two months. You must however be aware that a detox regime is not a slimming regime. Its primary purpose is to give you a break and to relax the body.

Detox regimes consisting of tea, physical exercise and a controlled diet

A tea-based detox is a type of detox which works on a long-term basis and does not have a harsh effect on the body.
Its target is long-term wellbeing. It’s a gentle regime and one that is extremely beneficial for the body. It originates from traditional Chinese medicine, which itself is more than 2500 years old and is based on five key cornerstones:

  • Qigong, or exercise
  • Dietary regime
  • Use of herbs and medicinal plants
  • Mssage
  • Acuponcture

The tea-based detox regimes offered by suppliers like Happy Detox Tea adopt three of the main aspects of Chinese medicine: exercise, dietary regime and use of herbs and medicinal plants.

Tea or infusion-based detoxes therefore originate from this Chinese medicine. The way they work is linked to the decoction of tea and plants, which allows the plants’ active and aromatic principles to be extracted, as the plants are dissolved in boiling water. All the different parts of plants can be used, such as the leaves, wood, bark, seeds and roots. These plants are chosen according to different classifications that have been drawn up over centuries by professors of Chinese medicine: they are classified by flavour, constitution, meridians and their specific qualities.

The range of detox teas offered by Happy Detox Tea is 100% natural, and all have been formulated by genuine professionals in medicinal plants.

We offer two lengths of detox regime 4-week or 8-week tea detox.

During your tea detox regime, drinking is not enough in itself; it is also vital that you exercise. This is why our teas come with an e-book containing an exercise regime. The regimes we’ve provided for you have been created by sports coaches, and are adapted to suit all ability levels. By doing sport, you speed up the process of eliminating toxins found in the body. It also enables you to strengthen your muscles (stomach, glutes, thighs…) and stimulate your blood vessels.

For a maximum energy level and a perfect detox, you must also follow a good diet and ensure you get all your vitamin and mineral needs. This is why our detox programmes also come with dietary regimes. Our professional coaches guarantee you will get the best results throughout the duration of your detox.

A tea-based detox is one of the best things you can do for your body. Not only is it a natural way of getting rid of toxins found in the body, but it also brings some very satisfying results. More and more people are enthusiastically partaking in detox regimes and thoroughly recommend that you do the same.
