8 Best Weight Loss Teas—For a Discount

Now through Monday, February 27, save up to 25 percent on your favorite slimming brews!

If you like to keep tea time interesting, you likely have a diverse collection of brews. Because each type of tea has its own distinct flavor and health benefits, that’s a good thing. But it can definitely drain your wallet. “Nutrient-rich varieties cost way more than a box of Lipton tea bags. In fact, some rare loose-leaf teas can cost thousands, and a small 1.6-ounce tin of culinary grade matcha can easily sell for $40 at your local grocery store,” says Kelly Choi, author of The 7-Day Flat-Belly Tea Cleanse.

To help you expand your infusion collection without breaking the bank, we’ve tracked down a wide variety of teas that are on sale now through Monday, February 27. Get ‘em while they’re hot (no pun intended) to start sipping your way to a slimmer, healthier you. And If you want to learn more about the better-body benefits of your favorites, don’t miss our report, The 22 Best Teas for Weight Loss.

Tazo Zen Green Tea

Researchers attribute the fat-burning properties of green tea to its EGCG content. The antioxidative compounds have the ability to rev the metabolism, increase the release of fat from fat cells, and speed the liver’s fat-burning capacity. This Tazo brew piqued our interest because it blends zingy lemongrass, lemon, and spearmint leaves with the traditional flavor of green tea. Not to mention, we dig the affordable cost!
