Looking for more energy and an easy way to cut your sugar intake? Swapping your daily tea intake for something herbal can give you a sustained energy boost and also encourage the body to detox. Penny Lancaster Stewart recommends Cho-Yung Tea.
A herbal tea swap is particularly ideal for busy mums. Penny gave birth to her second son Alistair in February and has been slowly and steadily regaining her pre-pregnancy figure with a combination of a healthy balanced diet, exercise and a cup or two of tea.
Based on a 400 year old Chinese recipe, Cho-Yung Tea is made from natural ingredients including Lotus Leaf to optimise digestion, Alisma to reduce bloating, and Cassia seeds and Poria. Each individual tea bag also contains Jiaogulan (or Southern Ginseng) a plant indigenous to Japan, China and Southern Korea. This ingredient, often referred to as 'the immortality herb' is unique to the Cho-Yung blend and has a calming effect to help regulate the digestive system.
“My slimming secret is drinking lots of fluids including Cho Yung tea. This helps detox the body, and the tea’s natural ingredients help me maintain my healthy lifestyle,” she said. Priced at £39.99 for 30 teabags, Cho-Yung Tea is available from Holland & Barrett.
