Why you should end your year with a tea detox

Why you should end your year with a tea detox


The demands of day-to-day life often lead us to make decisions that aren’t great for our health or wellbeing. If you want to eliminate processed foods, added sugar, and caffeine from your diet in the new year. A tea detox might be a great way for you to press the reset button on your mind and body.
Tea detoxing doesn't mean you will only drink tea and nothing else for days on end, we simply ask you to be mindful and intentional with your beverage choices throughout the day.

The Benefits of Tea Detox

1. It Improves your Metabolism

All polyphenols in black tea, oolong tea, and green tea have been shown to increase calorie consumption and reduce body fat. Interestingly, tea actually promotes a type of fat called brown fat. This type of fat is more metabolically active than white fat and is rich in mitochondria. That is, brown fat can actually burn calories and improve metabolism.

In a review of 15 studies, it was found that those who consumed two to six cups of green tea a day for longer than 12 weeks had lower body fat and body weight than those who did not.

2. Supports Mental Health

Regular tea intake is associated with a reduced risk of neuropathy and a reduced level of stress. Ingestion of green tea is also promising in preventing  cognitive decline associated with brain disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. Tea relieves stress and provides a natural soothing effect that helps to relax after a busy day. 

Tea contains antioxidants that help prevent oxidative stress, which can damage healthy cells. Antioxidants in tea eliminate free radicals caused by contamination and other factors that can cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is associated with dementia and depression. Antioxidants also help cleanse the body of toxins that can cause mental health problems. For those who drink tea, regular intake has been shown to reduce stress levels and improve overall health.

3. It’s Hydrating

Many used to believe that tea is dehydrating, but the myth has been debunked. Tea is just hydrating as water 


Tea detox regime 

In The Morning

The best time to drink tea is in the morning. A cup of hot/cold tea starts off your morning with a revitalized digestive system, a boost of energy, and a calm outlook which allows you to start the day feeling mindful, clear-headed, and that often leads to a more productive day. 


At mid-morning, you often find yourself transitioning to the next task of the day, and tea is the perfect beverage to enjoy as you transition between tasks because it not only provides a more sustained boost in energy unlike coffee, it also brings a sense of calm and clarity as you complete on thing and transition to the next. You won’t get the coffee jitter and it leaves you with better breath!  


Green tea is great for afternoon tea breaks. Green tea contains 20-200 milligrams of caffeine, which gives it  a slight increase in energy. Like white tea, green tea contains an amino acid called L-theanine, which has been reported to help brain function, making it the perfect drink to stay productive throughout the afternoon.

Before Bed

Chamomile Tea is famous for its calming effects, and many people swear by it as a sleeping aid. It has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to help ease stomach discomfort and anxiety. This is because chamomile contains an antioxidant called apigenin, which binds to receptors in the brain. This helps to decrease anxiety, slow the breath, and ultimately helps the body to fall asleep.

Post Workout

RIZO Iced tea also makes the perfect post workout drink! Each bottle contains 5g marine collagen which makes it optimal post-exercise nutrition that rapidly absorbs and can quickly work to help repair and replenish proteins broken down during exercise.
The importance of health and wellness is firmly rooted in the foundation of physical and mental health and resilience. Carrying out a tea detox, together with eating clean, may help you feel more relaxed, have more clarity, and eliminate toxic chemicals from your body. As long as you're incorporating one more two types of tea in a day, you're sure to reap the health benefits of this delightful elixir.
