True to the British stereotype, I’m an avid tea drinker, which usually amuses all my American friends here in New York. Not a day goes by without drinking a cup of tea and I find it to be incredibly relaxing. I have my own fancy tea cup and usually put the kettle on in the morning, before bed and whenever I return home from running errands.
There’s something quite ritualistic about drinking tea and I’m quite partial to the whole afternoon tea experience, complete with scones, finger sandwiches and mini cakes. I’m always on the lookout for new tea blends and recently I had the chance to try out ReadySlim, which makes two different tea blends designed for people who want to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Read on for my full review…
What is ReadySlim?
ReadySlim creates high quality cleansing and keto products for people who want to live a healthier lifestyle and kickstart their health and fitness routines.
The company makes organic tea blends packed with natural botanicals, designed to promote healthy weight management, reduce bloating and improve digestion.You can buy ReadySlim products online at https://readyslim.com/
ReadySlim makes two cleansing teas; Wakey Wakey Tea and Snoozzzy Tea.
Wakey Wakey Tea
Since I’m caffeine intolerant I can’t drink the Wakey Wakey Tea because one of the ingredients is organic yerba mate, which contains caffeine. However, I did have a little sip to taste it.
The tea has a passion fruit flavor to give it a tropical twist, as well as a variety of 8 other organic herbs ingredients meant to reduce bloating, improve glucose regulation and boost your metabolism.
Ingredients of the Wakey Wakey Tea:
Organic Yerba mate – known for its power to boost energy, reduce fatigue and curb appetite.Organic Green Rooibos – packed with antioxidants, rooibos can protect against cancer, heart disease and stroke. It also boosts metabolism and digestion. Organic Apple – rich in Vitamin C, which helps strengthen your immune system.

Organic Nettle Leaf – Nettle is packed with vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B4, and B5, which strengthen the immune system. Organic Milk Thistle – helps improve digestion and protects the liver. It can also help regulate blood sugar levels.
I can however drink the Snoozzzy Tea, which is caffeine free and is meant to relieve bloating and boost your metabolism while you sleep.
This soothing tea blend is also designed to help calm the mind so you can enjoy a deep, restful sleep.
Ingredients of the Snoozzzy Tea:

Organic Valerian Root – a natural sedative that helps improve sleep, promote relaxation and reduce anxiety.
How to Prepare ReadySlim Tea
Preparing the ReadySlim tea is pretty easy since the tea is already individually bagged. The tea bags come in a slim resealable pouch, which takes up less space in the cupboard and helps the herbs stay fresh. I much prefer this type of packaging to the boxes and I like that the tea comes in high quality bags and not the flimsy paper ones.
Here’s how to use it:
Put the kettle on and boil some waterTake 1 tea bag and steep with 8oz of near-boiling water for 5-7 minutes.Enjoy Snoozzzy hot or cold – you can enjoy it at any temperature.
Pretty simple! ReadySlim recommends two tea bags daily, one Wakey Wakey and one Snoozzzy. You can drink Wakey Wakey in the morning and Snoozzzy 1-2 hours before you go to bed.
A Final Word…
I love the taste of the ReadySlim Snoozzzy Tea tea – it’s very aromatic and fragrant and definitely makes me feel healthy. This one has been my go-to tea for a few weeks now. While I’m not dieting or trying to lose weight, I do appreciate that it helps to relieve bloating.
If you’re on a keto diet you’ll be pleased to know the tea is 100% keto-friendly and the ingredients should help curb cravings. Many detox teas use senna leaf, which has a laxative effect, but ReadySlim is laxative-free.
If you’re looking to lose weight, ReadySlim recommends adopting a healthy, clean diet with minimal processed food as well as a regular exercise routine.
This tea is not a quick-fix for weight loss but it can be helpful when accompanied with a balanced diet and a proper exercise regimen. If you want to try out both of the teas, you can order their Cleansing Tea Kit, which costs $69 or you can save 20% with a monthly subscription.
