Total Tea Gentle Detox Tea Review & Giveaway!

I have something to admit.  I have a problem.  An addiction to tea.  I seriously have a mad love for tea.  I do like coffee but when it comes down to it, I always have been and always will be a tea fanatic.  My daughter is a tea fan too.  She loves her iced decaf tea!  So when presented with the opportunity to try new teas, it is always a definitely YES for me!

I had never heard of Total Tea before I tried their Gentle Detox tea.  I have had digestive issues for most of my life.  My stomach is always unsettled among other things.  I've had some success calming my stomach with essential oils but I love to sooth an upset stomach with tea.  And this Gentle Detox tea is great for getting things working properly in the digestive department.  The first thing I did was read the label.  That's the first thing I look at when it comes to teas.  You wouldn't expect teas to have unnatural ingredients in them but surprisingly, many do.  Which completely ruins the whole purpose of tea.  But to my delight, Total Tea is all natural ingredients!   Some of the goodness in this gentle detox includes chamomile, hibiscus, cinnamon, papaya, ginger, peppermint and rosehips. No preservatives and no artificial ingredients.  Its an awesome combination.  I love the flavor, hot and cold.  And its naturally caffeine free and gluten free too!

I brewed this tea over the weekend when I was under some intense stress.  My stomach was in knots.  My toddler had fallen out of her crib for the first time and we spent the night getting xrays of her foot and ankle.  Turned out to be just a bad sprain but having a 2 year old in pain is awful.  My anxiety was through the roof!   BUT....then.....the following morning was hit number 2.  After spending the night in the ER with the kiddo, I was feeling tired and clumsy and ended up falling down our stairs.  And that meant trip number 2 to the ER for xrays.  Wasn't a good 24 hours that's for sure.  Thankfully neither of us had any broken bones.  But I had badly sprained both ankles.  Talk about stress!  So I needed something to sooth my nervous gut and calm me a bit too.  We've had dreary, raining weather so some warm tea was perfect.  I loved this.  It calmed my stomach and my mind.  And it tastes fantastic, especially with a bit of honey.  The nice thing is that this detox tea is a combination of things that will help with digestive issues, acid reflux, gas, lose stools and constipation.  Its also calming and soothing too so its great to enjoy under stress, while you are sick or just needed to give your digestive system and once over.  And its great for immune system support!
