How to prepare your Detox Tea
It couldn’t be easier to prepare the Örtte Detox Tea! To get started, simply take a tea bag from the pack and place it in your favourite mug or travel infuser. Add nearly boiling water and let the tea bag infuse for approximately 5 minutes - we recommend no longer for the best taste and effect. After that your tea is ready to drink. If preferred, you can also add healthy extras to your tea such as lemon or honey. Each day drink 1 morning tea and every other day 1 evening tea. A single pack of Detox Tea contains 28 morning tea bags and 14 evening tea bags, which is a complete 28 day supply.
Just like all Örtte products, their Detox Tea is made using natural ingredients so therefore is safe to use with no known negative side effects. If using for the first time, as with any new product, we always recommend reading through the entire ingredients list for any personal allergens it may contain. If you are pregnant or on medication, consult your doctor before use.
