Words of Advice

While searching through your cabinets for hot tea packets, avoid the boxes that say "Super Dieter's Tea."


The effects really aren't very pleasant. I came "home" from my show Friday night in dire need of hot tea. My throat was tired. And since I was tired, my search led me to the only box that said "caffeine free." The box also said "Super Dieter's Tea," but I didn't pay much attention to that because I didn't know what it meant.

Um....after Saturday morning, I know what it means.

Do you what that means?

The box also said to let the tea steep for only 1 minute, and avoid pressing on the tea packet while it steeped. I didn't read that part, either.

Are you saying that you found Saturday... um... reLAXing?

FancyPants said...

HAHA!

So...reLAXing that drugs, two doses actually, were needed to de-LAX me.

It was awful.

I try never to consume any product with the word "diet" attached, but thanks for the heads up.

Ha, ha, ha That was worst than my dramamine, ha, ha

I can see how you would make that mistake. The web site for that tea is steeped in euphemisms and flowery words, but no real mention of the main "business" they promote.

A treasury of warm childhood memories.

That sounds like tea for the anorexic. I can't believe they actually sell s#$% like that under the "diet" label.

True, well don't start with this product!

Julio, WAY worse!! Thank God I was cured by show time.

C-Ham, your link is GROSS!!!

MB, no kidding. I can't believe people actually diet that way. Maybe if you take it the right way, it's supposed to work like coffee? The box did say if certain symptoms occur, ahem...such as in my case...stop taking it. I just let the darn bag sit in the hot water forever and I pressed it up against my mug to get as much flavor out of it as possible. BAD idea.

I can't believe I'm talking about this with you people!!

Fancy - now you know why there remained a whole bag of those tea bags to choose from!! Just think of it as Activia Yogurt on steroids.

Chaotic Hammer said...

I can't believe I'm talking about this with you people!!

Uh-huh. Right, Mrs. Married-To-Seth. We believe you. No, really. We do. :-)

Julio said...

Is it similar to a drink call MATE from southamerica??
I remember drinking MATE in Argentina (everybody does it) it's a nice drink, he, he

FancyPants said...

Super Churchlady, more like Taco Bell on steroids.

C-Ham, hey. Just because my husband likes to talk about gross things doesn't mean I do. This is a very exceptional case.

Julio, I don't know. Does MATE make your intestines feel like they're being yanked out of your body?

I'm sorry, people. Really, I am. You really just have to know about this product. Stay away!!

This Southern Belle said...

Oh, gosh. I wouldn't have thought twice about the name of the product either. Thanks for the tip!
