Lyfe Tea is a product that says it is going to boost your metabolism, help you lose weight, improve your mental clarity, and aid in your digestion. Their website is rather spotty, and looks cheaper than most tea companies on the market which already makes me question their business practices. They heavily market the fact that they use celebrity endorsements on their website, but this is simply because these celebrities are getting paid to endorse it.

Lyfe Tea is a product that says it is going to boost your metabolism, help you lose weight, improve your mental clarity, and aid in your digestion. Their website is rather spotty, and looks cheaper than most tea companies on the market which already makes me question their business practices. They heavily market the fact that they use celebrity endorsements on their website, but this is simply because these celebrities are getting paid to endorse it. The ‘About Us’ section is rather shallow, with little to no information about who they are and why they are make the teas. While they offer a contact page with an e-mail and phone number, this company seems like it is more about getting you in and out the door rather than educated you on their products. Their contact information is (931) 854-9439 [email protected]

Lyfe Tea Claims
Right on the website they will tell you: “This product may produce a laxative effect and can be toxic in high doses. Strictly follow our specific guideline enclosed in your pack unless otherwise recommended by your healthcare professional.”
They warn that their morning tea should not be used for the long term: “Our Evening Detox Tea should only be used for the short term as recommended on the packaging and the website.”
Their refund policy contradicts itself: “We understand that our teas are not suitable for everyone and that all bodies are different. Therefore, we do not offer refunds if the tea does not perform the way you desire.”
Later on in the text they say, “We accept returns only for damaged goods that are not opened. Due to worldwide TGA and FDA regulations, we cannot accept any returns of open packages.” My question here is how would you try the product out to see if it works with your body, if it becomes unreturnable once opened? All of the risk lies on the customer at this point.
Lyfe Tea Scientific Backing
I did not see any scientific backing on the website, nor did they offer any insight to clinical trials that have been done in the past to prove that this product helps you lose weight. The site was very inconsistent overall so it does not surprise me that there were no medical, or professional studies present when looking into this.
Is Lyfe Tea Effective?
There were many outside references for customer review, and many said that the teas did nothing at all for them. Other stated that it gave them bad stomach aches, and gas which always goes back to the controversial ingredient “Senna” which is a laxative. This ingredient has been known to cause issues with many people, hence making the reviews of the product extremely inconsistent. There were others that stated they liked the taste of it, but it will clean your body out (due to the laxative effect of the night tea). While this is good at first, it is not a healthy way to maintain weight loss since it is merely water weight.
Does Lyfe Tea Have Side Effects?
Due to the laxatives found in the night tea, you may experience a side effect such as having a lot of time spent in the bathroom. Many people have reported stomach aches, headaches, dehydration, and gas while taking Lyfe Teas. Other than that, the effects will be completely reliant on how your body reacts to the ingredients listed. Always stop taking the teas if you are feeling dizzy, nauseous, or have a hard time breathing.
What Is Lyfe Tea Support Like?
As mentioned above they offer two forms of support: phone (931) 854-9439 and [email protected] Which is a great sign, as many companies only offer an e-mail (or snail mail) as I call it. When calling into their support line someone answered (hooray!) and they were friendly. However, they did break the news to me that I had only 30 days to change my mind and send back unopened teas back for a refund. I am still scratching my head to how this works? Maybe the bag itself can be opened? They were not clear about it. You can pretty much guarantee you are not getting a full refund if you open anything you order which already is a disappointment. Overall they offering a line of support to their customers so they are doing better than most companies on the market today. Finally, they do not offer any backing to why they chose the ingredients, which has me worried because this product is not approved by the FDA. Save your money on Lyfe Teas, and find a more reputable, risk free tea option! Your wallet will thank you, and your stomach will too!
The Bottom Line
The ingredients in the night time tea are controversial, and contain a laxative. I do not like the side effects it can cause, as well as the dehydration it causes. To top it all off their return policy is weak, and you are taking more risk trying out their product than you should have to. The customer reviews were not strong enough to make me believe this tea actually works in the long term, so I see this as a poor investment as you will most likely not get your money back if it does not work for you.
