Strip Teas are produced by the Satori Tea Company (STC), a Saratoga-based company that sells wholesale and retail tea blends, as well as running a tea room in Saratoga offering afternoon tea experiences. According to the company information, The Strip Tea range is a “tea based regime to aid in weight management and digestive health.”
Strip Teas 28-Day Detox is a 28-day detox plan that comprises of three different teas that you drink morning, afternoon, and before you go to bed. The claims are that doing this will improve weight management and your digestive health but in truth, you are more likely to experience side effects such as diarrhoea and dehydration. There is no evidence to prove the claims of detoxing; this practice is dangerous according to doctors and dieticians but because it is fashionable and popular, this craze is unlikely to go away soon. The Satori company has obviously jumped on this lucrative bandwagon with this overpriced detox program which appears to be an “add-on” to their normal business of selling tea wholesale and running a tea room in California.
Potential side effects may include diarrhoea, stomach pains, abdominal cramps, uterine contractions, reduced potassium levels, headaches, sweating, and insomnia.
Taking laxatives and diuretics can lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include thirst, dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness, heart palpitations, confusion, fainting, inability to sweat or urinate, weight loss, and high temperature.
Strip Teas 28-Day Detox contains Slippery Elm, once taken in the form of tea in order to bring about abortion.
Medical advice is to use Senna for no longer than 7 days.
Strip Teas 28-Day Detox is very expensive. You can only buy it via the Strip Teas website where it costs $65.00 for the kit. This comprises of a 28-day supply of AM Loose Tea and Afternoon Loose Tea and a 14-day supply of the PM Tea also called Bedtime Cleanse or Night Time Cleanse. The company don’t seem to be able to make their mind up over the name!
Shipping is calculated at the point of sale.
We are not impressed with Strip Teas 28-Day Detox. This overpriced detox program will cause adverse effects in users and although all that bathroom time may make you feel like you are losing weight, the truth is that you will be losing body fluids and running the risk of dehydration and laxative dependency.
Even if you believe in detoxing for health as some people do, taking this teatox for 28 days is far too long. All medical advice is to take Senna only for a maximum of 7 days in cases of constipation, yet you are supposed to drink the Night Time Cleanse tea for a full 14 days. Even worse, the product information advises you can take 2 teatoxes one after the other for a whopping 56 days. All we can say if you do this, good luck and let’s hope your bathroom is in good order. You are going to be spending a lot of time in it!
We actually liked the look of the Satori tea room, the Tipping Teapot, located in Saratoga California. But we certainly do not like this Detox plan and would never approve anything so useless and potentially dangerous. Overall, we do not recommend Strip Teas 28-Day Detox Kit to the Watchdog readers.

When we were asked to look into Strip Teas, we quickly noticed that there are quite a few detox teas on the market that have the same or at least very similar name.
There is Strip Tea from a company called ActiLabs that seems to originate from Paris. There is also a British company called Strip Teas UK that still shows up in searches but since 2015 does not seem to be still in business. There may be more, and we can imagine how pleased each of these companies were at coming up with such an original name! We had a little chuckle over it we admit because it is a good one.
Strip Teas 28-Day Detox comes from the Satori Tea Company, a US company. The Strip Teas range looks like an add-on to their usual business which is focused on wholesale and retail tea, and a tea room in Saratoga California called the Tipping Teapot, where you can enjoy afternoon teas with cakes.
According to the “about us” information, Strip Teas was devised as a healthy weight loss program to help you achieve optimal health. The Strip Tea range is sold via a separate website.
The Detox program consists of three tea blends. The teas are in loose leaf form, rather than tea bags, and are designed to be taken morning, afternoon, and before bedtime.
The AM Tea contains green tea and other healthy ingredients such as Goji berries. There are also diuretics, substances to make you pee more, dandelion, and nettle extract. Causing increased urination is often seen as a way to lose water weight and remove bloating, so can make you look and feel temporarily slimmer. AM Tea also contains milk thistle which is known for its laxative effect.
The Afternoon tea is a blend of teas plus coffee bean and cacao nibs, so it may help give you an afternoon lift. This formula also contains dandelion root so again this is a diuretic.
PM Tea, also called Bedtime Cleanse, comes with the most concerns. This is the strongest tea in the range and contains laxatives including Senna, plus a blend of herbal ingredients including hibiscus leaf, hawthorn and slippery elm. Because of the risk of potential side effects, you are advised to use this tea every other night.

According to the Satori Tea Company,
Strip Teas is a unique tea detox program designed to cleanse and nourish the body in order to achieve optimal health. Specifically formulated to “strip” the body of unwanted toxins, our deep detox supports weight control, balances digestion, and stabilizes energy.
The benefits of the three teas are explained:
No. There is not a shred of evidence that will prove that taking this 28-Day Detox will work in the way as described.
Detox teas or teatoxes are fashionable right now, especially with younger women and celebs but there is zero evidence that they work in the way as described. They are billed as a healthy but medical opinion does not agree, and this practice does come with many health concerns especially around the use of the laxative Senna.
Although Senna is an approved herbal remedy for constipation, it should not be taken on a regular basis as with the detox teas and doctors are extremely concerned about the side effects. Check out our investigation into why detox teas are bad for your health.
In addition, this supplement contains ingredients to make you pee. Losing so-called water weight can help you look thinner but this is only temporary. Taking diuretics can lead to dehydration and to avoid this you need to ensure you drink plenty of water. So you may as well just save time and stay as you are and avoid taking diuretics in the first place.
All that said, we believe that the real tea used in this supplement, such as Oolong, Shou Pu’er, and Green Tea is probably good quality. But the addition of all those herbal ingredients is much more likely to lead to side effects than anything else.
It is important to know that the only way that Detox teas work is by causing your body to lose water and to increase your bowel movements. It can feel that doing this is making you thinner, but it is not a way to help you lose fat and it does lead to side effects.
This is a 28-day program. There are three blends of loose tea packed in sachets. You just open the sachet and add to hot water.
The teas may seem like healthy and harmless, but side effects could be an issue.
Potential side effects may include:
Taking laxatives and diuretics can lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include:
Take laxatives too long and it can cause dependency, where your bowels cannot open without the help of a laxative.
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant, breast feeding or trying to conceive. Discontinue use if you experience side effects and seek medical advice. Drink plenty of water in order to avoid dehydration.
