Burnfatea Teatox

Updated May 14, 2019.
Published Aug 6, 2015.

There are countless detox tea (or “teatox”) products on the market, and more often than not they are little more than a laxative in disguise. Burnfatea Teatox does include some laxative ingredients (along with diuretics and stimulants), but it doesn’t seem to be as bad as many of its competitors. There is a daytime blend and a nighttime blend included with this product, with 7-, 14, and 28-day teatoxes available. Even though it looks to be one of the better detox teas around, we still can’t bring ourselves to recommend such a product, as they never actually lead to real weight loss.


  • Better than many other teatoxes. Does not contain harsh laxatives.
  • Reasonably well priced.
  • Contains some good ingredients such as tea blends and Rooibos.


  • Will not live up to the claims of the advertising.
  • Although the laxatives are milder than usually contained in teatoxes, they may still cause side effects.
  • Lacks any real product information.
Burnfatea Teatox
Burnfatea Teatox is a teatox programme that comprises of two tea blends. The idea is that you drink one tea blend in the morning and the other you take before bedtime. 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 Overview

What you need to know about Burnfatea Teatox

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.

What are the side effects of Burnfatea Teatox?

You may experience some side effects as a result of the diuretic, laxative, and stimulant ingredients. Please see the Side Effects section below for a full list.

How much does Burnfatea Teatox cost?

The 7-Day teatox (7 day teabags and 7 night teabags) costs £7.99.
The 14-day teatox (14 day teabags and 14 night teabags) costs £12.99.
The 28-Day teatox (28 day teabags and 28 night teabags) costs £19.99.

Burnfatea Teatox Key Features

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.

Burnfatea Teatox Key Points

  • Burnfatea Teatox is a British company based in London.
  • Burnfatea Teatox is available on eBay
  • Glossy social media inspired product website.

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.

How to Take Burnfatea Teatox

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.

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 Concerns:

  • No clinical evidence to back up the claims of the advertising.
  • The composition of the teabags not provided. You don’t know how much of any one ingredient you are taking.
  • Some people believe teatox teas are beneficial for your health, but they can cause side effects.

Burnfatea Teatox is produced by British company, who are based in Enfield London. They are transparent about their contact details an although there is no customer help line, you can contact the company via email.

The detox packages come in 7-, 14- 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.

What does Burnfatea Teatox claim to do?

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
  • Bloating
  • Detoxing
  • Burning Fat
  • Cellulite

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”.

Does Burnfatea Teatox work?

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 Ingredients

Burnfatea Teatox is a two-part detox tea programme. Ingredient quantities per teabag are not specified.

Day Teatox:

  • Yerba Mate Tea: South American plant extract that contains high levels of caffeine as well as antioxidants. Often drunk as an alternative to coffee and has a very similar effect. Some evidence suggests that Yerba Mate may delay gastric emptying and so may help prevent hunger pangs. Early clinical testing shows that Yerba Mate may reduce cholesterol.
    Source :
  • Oolong Tea: This tea is partially fermented so retains more natural antioxidants than black tea but less than green tea, which undergoes minimal fermentation and processing. Oolong tea is dried in the sun and is prized for its taste. It is high in antioxidants called polyphenols. Contains caffeine which can promote energy and mental alertness.
  • Jasmine Green Tea: Green tea scented with Jasmine leaves. Green Tea is high in antioxidants and phenols. All tea – from PG Tips to Green Tea comes from the same plant Camilla Sinensis. The difference all comes down to how it is processed.
  • Spearmint Leaves: Minty taste that will add to flavour.
  • Lemon Grass: When taken in large enough quantities lemon grass can have a calming effect. Popular tea ingredient in many countries.
  • Hibiscus Leaves: Gentle laxative and diuretic that is often used as flavouring in tea. This natural plant extract may help reduce high blood pressure.
  • Rosehips: The seeds of the rose, located just below the petals. Rosehips are high in vitamin C.
  • Lemon Verbena: Herb known for its lemony taste and may have health benefits. High in antioxidants.
  • Siberian Ginseng: This natural plant is not actually related to ginseng but is a plant extract called Eleuthero, which is often taken in Russia for an OTC depression remedy. It is an adaptogen, which means that it can improve general health and wellbeing. However, there are some concerns around side effects. It can increase heart rate in some people.
  • Acai berry: Much touted superfruit that can provide a general support to health.
  • Guarana Seed: Caffeine rich bean similar to caffeine.

Night Teatox:

  • Red Rooibos Tea: Popular herbal tea from South Africa and not actually a tea from the Camilla Sinensis plant but derived from a plant that grows in South Africa called the Redbush. It is high in vitamin C, caffeiene free and contains polyphenol antioxidants.
  • Star anise: Familiar Chinese spice with an aniseed taste.
  • Cinnamon: Culinary spice that may have health benefits in high quantities. Probably present here solely as a flavouring.
  • Burdock Root: British medicinal herb that works a laxative.
  • Galangal Root: Often used in Asian cuisine, Galangal is very similar in taste and appearance to the better known ginger. It is a well known medicinal herb and used by herbalists for a range of conditions including respiratory and digestive problems. It may have a mild stimulant effect.
  • Dandelion Leaves: Commonplace garden weed in Europe and a well known diuretic. It may cause you to urinate more depending on quantities included in the tea (not given).
  • Nettle Leaves: Similar to dandelion, this common garden weed is also a diuretic.
  • Chamomile Flowers: Known for its calming effect, chamomile tea is a popular natural sleep aid.

Watchdog Verdict

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, 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.
