We like to think of detoxing as a series of swapsies and thanks to Teapigs, we’re making a detox easier; allowing you to take in less calories, feel healthier and more smug. Basically, you need Teapigs in your life. Whether it’s for detox reasons or just to show off by drinking posh, leafy blends, these teas are going to hydrate your January in a way it’s never been hydrated before. Here at the Bowgie Inn, Crantock, we have a tempting selection of Teapigs teas that will help add the ‘de’ to your ‘tox’.
We’ve put together a few simple detoxing Teapigs swaps for you… which one do you fancy?
1. Swap ‘a chocolate flake’ for ‘Chocolate Flake Tea’.
Calories in a Chocolate flake tea – 5.
Calories in a chocolate flake – 170.
That means you can enjoy a little chocolate fix for just 3% of the calories. To match the calories, you’d have to drink 34 cups and from experience, it becomes a bit of a struggle after 4.
2. Swap a red wine for a Red Bush.
We aren’t being rude – it’s a tea – and a really nice one at that!
Less than 5 calories (there’s about 125 in a glass of red wine) and zilcho alcohol – that’s two ticks on your detox chart. See? This lark is pretty easy.
3. Swap sweets for a Liquorice and Peppermint Tea.
In need of a sweet treat ? Don’t reach for that Christmas tub of jelly babies – all the red ones have gone anyway and it’s just the green ones left. A liquorice and peppermint tea will really hit the spot and will save several hundred calories. Each jelly baby is about 20 calories…and no one ever has just one!!
4. Swap a Juice Drink for a Jasmine Pearls Tea.
Juice is better than alcohol but it’s still full of sugar. Jasmine Pearls tea is just as refreshing and actually makes you look intellectual, it’s like drinking ancient oriental wisdom. Is that a tick on the detox chart? We think so and it’s probably worth an extra tick for making you clevererer….
5. Swap a Cider for a Super fruits Tea.
We agree cider is basically just apples so is almost a super fruit but you have to admit, it’s not as detoxy as a cuppa. Teapigs have put all the good stuff from berries (like antioxidants and magic) and put it in a teabag. So all you have to do is drink and you could be giving yourself a little boost. Brilliant.
After all this tea you’ll be ready to take on the world…
Right, now we’re off to put the kettle on!
