This Lotus Leaf-Cassia seed blend is the one we most recommend for those looking to control their body weight. (Please see our customer reviews for the effectiveness of this tea by clicking on the 'product review' tab next to the 'Description' tab.) It is made of 100% herbs and contains no man made laxatives. It achieves its results through alternating appetite towards low energy foods, reducing energy absorption in the digestive system and increasing body metabolism rates and energy expenditure.
The botanic name of the Lotus plant is Nelumbo Nucifera. It is also known as sacred lotus in China and India. All parts of this plant have been used in traditional Chinese medicines for various therapeutic functions. Recent attention however has been focusing on the anti-obesity effects of its leaves: “The lotus leaf, mixed with common tea leaves, and made into tea, is a potent concoction for preventing heatstroke, lowering blood lipid levels and treating obesity.”
Some published research reports are listed below:
Not suitable for pregnant women or during menstruation.
For pregnancy: it is a principle of practice in medicine that pregnancies should be ‘drug free’ if possible, including the very mild agents such as caffeine or herbs. In addition, we discourage attempts to lose weight during pregnancy as this is the period that both the mother and the foetus require sufficient amount of energy and nutrients.
For menstruation period: Lotus leaf has a ‘cooling’ effect and has a potential to reduce blood flow. According Chinese medicine, women’s blood should flow smoothly during their menstruation periods, otherwise cramps may occur.

1 tea bag per cup, 2-3 per teapot. Add freshly boiled water and serve after 2-3 minutes. The delicate flavour is best appreciated without addition of milk or sugar.
Awesome tea, always look forward to my tea. Been having a cup before each meal and in between and have lost weight and less appertite. I am now off my diabetic tablets as it has been normal since after drinking the tea. Always make sure I have extra in stock. Thank you for a great tea.
Light pleasant tasting tea, have never been a huge fan of some tea\'s but find I really look forward to having my cuppa now. I have 1 before each meal and 1 at night and have definitely felt less bloated. Thanks also for the great service you provide.\r\n\r\nDeanne\r\nMon 31st Aug 2009
Fabulous tea. I can\'t get enough of it. I put a single jasmine pearl with it and it is delicious. I have 4-5 bags per day and since i started using this tea regularly I have lost 10 kg - that\'s since 26/09/08. I have more energy and can do more excercise as a result. I don\'t feel like I\'m dragging my heels under a puffy bloated body. The taste is wonderful. An excellent tea. Thank you.
