Our Detox Tea Ingredients
We’ve tested dozens of ingredients and countless combinations of natural fruits, herbs and leaves in order to get the best results. Our Sleeptox tea contains Senna and we know that too much Senna can give stomach cramps and is not good for the body. This is why, unlike other teatox companies, we only us 0.4 grams of Senna in each teabag for a gentle and subtle affect.
Our detox tea is blended and bagged in the UK at a facility that is part of the UK Tea Council and is also Ethical Tea Partnership certified. We also have ISO9001 certification. Please see below for the list of 100% natural ingredients, where they come from and what they can do for your body’s well being.

We have included Ginger root for its ability to help soothe the digestive system due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

It’s one of our favourite ingredients, and it also adds a zingy flavour to put a spring in your step.
