SkinnyMint Morning Boost Tea Summary

SkinnyMint Morning Boost Tea contains green tea in their blend but not oolong tea. Both green tea and oolong tea are considered two of the best for weight loss.

It also contains dandelion, which is a light diuretic. While some users really liked the taste of this tea, others didn’t.

When to take this tea:

Take this tea every morning during the length of your detox.

Taste:

According to the company, this tea tastes “fresh, tropical and fruity.” However, some reviewers expressed not liking the taste, saying it had a bitter aftertaste.

Easy to Use?

Yes – SkinnyMint tea comes in teabag form so all you have to do is steep the teabag in your cup before drinking.

Side Effects?

Though the company states that you can use this tea even after you finish your 14 day or 28 day detox program, the tea contains dandelion, a light laxative.

This ingredient could cause you to use the bathroom more throughout the day, and may cause light cramping.

Their nighttime tea includes senna, a harsh laxative tea, which could cause those same side effects but at a more intense level.

Disclaimers

The product page includes the following disclaimers:

Ingredients

Includes Green Tea but Not Oolong:

SkinnyMint Morning Boost tea includes green tea, which is one of the best teas to help you lose weight, according to studies.2

The bioactive substances in green tea (including caffeine and EGCG, a potent antioxidant), help to boost your metabolism and burn fat.3

The company also makes it clear just how much of the tea is in each serving (1,230mg) which is a good amount for weight loss, according to one study.4

But even though this tea has green tea in the blend, it does not have oolong, which along with green tea is one of the top two teas to help with weight loss.

Studies using oolong tea have shown that the ingredient not only helps to burn fat, but it also is able to prevent that fat from coming back.5 In a 2009 study, 70% of severely obese subjects who consumed oolong tea showed a decrease of more than 1 kg in body weight, and 22% lost more than 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) after regular consumption of this tea.6

Some Beneficial Ingredients & One Lacking Evidence:

SkinnyMint tea also includes guarana seed, yerba mate and nettle leaf.

Yerba mate and guarana seed are both well-chosen ingredients with research showing they can help with weight loss.

While yerba mate can help you to feel full and cause you not to overeat7, guarana is a stimulant that can powerfully suppress your appetite and reduce calorie intake.8

Nettle leaf, on the other hand, may help to boost metabolism, but there are not enough studies done on this ingredient to prove that it would help you drop pounds.9

Positives and Negatives of Dandelion:

SkinnyMint Morning Boost tea also includes dandelion leaf which is a diuretic that helps to cleanse your body by flushing out water. It does this by stimulating more urine production, and causing excess fluid to leave your body tissues.10

Even though dandelion is helpful to lose some water weight, it may come with some potential side effects. Dandelion can potentially have a negative effect on your digestive system, leading to diarrhea, heartburn and stomach inflammation.11

Price and Money Back Guarantee

Price: $29.90 for 28 servings ($1.07 per serving)

Money Back Guarantee?: No

SkinnyMint Morning Boost Tea is a good price for a weight loss tea, at about $1.07 per serving.

However, the company does not offer a money back guarantee. You can return your order within 60 days of purchase for a full refund, but only if the product is unopened and in the original packaging.

Therefore, if you try this tea and you don’t like it or it doesn’t help you lose weight, you cannot return it.

SkinnyMint Morning Boost Tea Conclusion

Though SkinnyMint Morning Boost Tea includes one of the best teas for weight loss (green tea) in a beneficial amount that was proven in one study to drop pounds, it does not include oolong tea, another proven tea for weight loss.

This tea blend also includes dandelion, which is a light laxative ingredient, which may help you lose water weight but may also cause unpleasant side effects.

Some people liked the taste of this tea while others did not, but it is a good price for a detox tea. Finally, this company does not offer a money back guarantee on the product, so although it may be a good choice for a weight loss tea, you may want to compare it with other brands on our website to see how it measures up.
