Cornelia Slimming Tea - Review

A Pleasant Cleanser

Cornelia Slimming Tea

You may have already raised a glass to the new year on January 1st, but you can keep your weight loss resolutions by continuing to lift cup to lips — if that cup is filled with Cornelia Slimming Tea, that is. Tea's natural diuretic qualities are harnessed and enhanced by this blend of dandelion root, corn silk and European white birch; the inclusion of senna leaves, meanwhile, helps to gently stimulate and cleanse the bowels. According to the company, just two cups a day will help flush excess body fluids, eliminating water weight and toxins and giving you a natural leg up on slimming down. We didn't try the tea for long enough to really start seeing the pounds slipping off, but we did find it surprisingly pleasant-tasting for a cleansing tea—you won't need a spoonful of sugar to help this medicine go down. That alone is enough to fill anyone with "Cheers!"
