Unlike most other teatoxes, Burnfatea Teatox does not contain the powerful laxative Senna so looks healthier than many others on the market.
We take an in depth look at Burnfatea Teatox to find out more
Burnfatea Teatox is a teatox that claims to detoxify your body, reduce cellulite, get rid of bloating and restore balance.
It is a two step programme. You drink the Day teatox tea every morning and the Night teatox tea every night.
The Day teatox contains a blend of tea varieties including Oolong tea and Jasmine green tea.
It also contains Yerba Mate – a stimulating tea that contains caffeine and is popular in South America as an alternative to coffee and tea. There is some evidence that Yerba Mate may delay gastric emptying so it can help you feel fuller and avoid sugar cravings.
Other ingredients include Siberian Ginseng, a plant extract that is not actually related to ginseng but is a plant extract called Eleuthero, which is often taken as a depression remedy. It is an adaptogen, which means that it can improve general health and wellbeing, but it can sometimes cause side effects.
The rest of the tea blend is comprised of some herbal ingredients such as hibiscus, lemon grass and spearmint, which will give the tea a minty taste. It also contains Acai berry extract a superfruit high in antioxidants and Guarana – a South American bean that is similar to the coffee bean.
We can see that taking this tea in the morning may give you an energy boost and may help set you up for the day. It contains ingredients that may help support weight loss too.
The Night Tea is to be taken every evening. With most teatoxes, the evening blends contain strong laxatives so the advice is to use every other night. Burnfatea Night tea looks fairly gentle compared to these.
The Night tea blend contains Rooibos – a South African tea that is caffeine free, chamomile flowers – well known for causing a sleepy effect, star anise, and cinnamon, which will add to the taste. However, it does contain some diuretic ingredients including dandelion and nettle so it will increase your urine output. It also contains Burdock a mild laxative. This seems to be unnecessary just before you go to bed. Could it mean that it gets you up in the night for the bathroom?
Burnfatea Teatox is produced by British company Burnfatea.com who are based in Enfield London. They are transparent about their contact details and although there is no customer help line, you can contact the company via email.
The detox packages come in 7 days, 14 days or 28 days supply.
You can also buy the 14-day Crave Buster teatox – designed to help you avoid snacking and support weight loss. Crave Buster comes in various flavours including Cherry, Blackberry, Blueberry and Rhubarb/Strawberry.
We have featured many teatox supplements in previous reviews including Bootea
and Skinny Mint
This teatox does not come with very much product information and does not explain exactly how and when you take this tea. However, we advise first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
Just add boiling water to the teabag in a cup and take black. You can add honey or Stevia according to taste. Burnfatea Teatox does not come with any advice or weight loss tips.
According to the product information
The 2 Step Programme consists of a stimulating Morning Teatox (with an uplifting lemongrass, mint taste) and a relaxing, cleansing Evening Teatox (with a bold aniseed cough candy taste).
Burnfatea Teatox is formulated to aid:
- Weight loss
- Burning Fat
It “contains powerful botanicals including our tri blend mix”
However there is no explanation about how these ingredients will work together to achieve these claims and despite mentioning a “tri blend mix” there is no further information about this feature.
What you do get from the Burnfatea Teatox advertising are plenty of images of gorgeous women on beaches, plus customer comments left via tweets such as “Teatox arrived excited to try this! #burnfatea”
Burnfatea Teatox is a two-part detox tea programme.
Ingredient quantities per teabag are not specified.
It is hard to see how this teatox programme will really live up to the claims in the advertising. However, it contains some reasonable ingredients especially the tea varieties and we can see that the Day Tea may perk you up. It contains caffeine and some of the ingredients are known for containing lots of antioxidants.
However, we are slightly concerned about the laxatives and diuretics that are present in both formulas.
There is no reason why you should take these for health or weight loss and it can lead to dehydration. Losing water weight can show up as weight loss on the scales temporarily but unless you are a jockey or a boxer who needs to keep below a certain weight for competition, there is no reason in normal life.
That said many of the laxatives here, like burdock, could be described as gentle so this teatox seems to be one of the safer supplements on the market. You will need to ensure you drink plenty of water to avoid the dehydrating effects of the diuretics and laxatives.
Burnfatea Teatox does come with a disclaimer, although a more visible warning to customers would have been preferable.
If you experience any unwanted symptoms such as nausea & vomiting, cease use of the product and consult your doctor
Other side effects may include:
The product disclaimer advises:
“Please do not use these products if you are under 18 or pregnant or breast-feeding.
It is your responsibility to consult your doctor before starting a detox program should you feel you have any specific medical conditions / taking any medication
There are no real customer reviews for Burnfatea Teatox. The company sell via the product website and although they have used social media messages as part of the advertising, most of the comments are along the lines of:
#teatox #burnfatea #weightlosstea #14dayteatox
Burnfatea Teatox is also marketed via eBay. Most customer comments are positive but mainly relate to the speed of delivery and packaging.
One woman wrote a review in a blog after receiving 2 weeks free supply. She enjoyed the tea but said,
in all honesty I don’t feel any difference in the way I feel…
We cannot see it living up to the claims in the advertising. In addition, there is little point to taking even mild laxatives and diuretics for weight loss.
This whole idea of detoxing is fashionable but there is no benefit to health or weight loss according to dieticians and medical professionals. It can cause more problems than it solves and can lead to side effects such as dehydration.
Although the advertising touts detoxing for health, it can be potentially dangerous.
That said Burnfatea Teatox looks to be one of the safer teatoxes on the market. We like that it does not contain Senna and some of the ingredients may help you feel fit and healthy.
You will not lose lots of weight by just adding two cups of tea to your daily routine, but at least this teatox should not cause too many side effects for most people.

Burnfatea Teatox is not covered by a guarantee.
Burnfatea Teatox has some good points. For a teatox supplement, it looks pretty safe and it doesn’t contain Senna or any other harsh laxatives. However, the tea blends do contain some laxative and diuretic ingredients so you may find that you experience extra time in the bathroom as well as other side effects. There are some stimulants in the Day tea including caffeine so this will not suit everyone either.
We are unimpressed with the lack of information provided by Burnfatea. There are many claims made in the advertising but these are just not backed up with any evidence. Instead, the website displays pictures of fabulous bodies on the beach and it is all very stylish but short on proof.
Drinking this tea twice a day will not get you one of these fit looking bodies, however much you want to believe in it. If it did, we would be the first to be buying it!
Burnfatea Teatox is better than many other teatoxes on the market. It looks safer and compared to others, the price is not too bad and you may enjoy the taste.
However, “not too bad” is not good enough to add to our approved list so we have no other option but to reject Burnfatea Teatox.
