What’s the catch, you might be asking? Absolutely nothing. So, what are you waiting for? Try out Vanilla Black Tea today and start losing weight.
The flavouring of tea; be it Black, Green, White, or Oolong; is far from a new phenomenon. In fact, it potentially dates back many thousands of years. The earliest examples of flavouring tea would have likely been with the use of Green Tea. A mixture of herbs and spices were not uncommon accompaniments during this time. Then, following the invention of Black Tea in the late 16th Century, tea producers began to experiment with even more different flavours.
Most famous of all is Earl Grey, which is flavoured with Bergamot oil. Other notable Black Teas are Chai Teas which originate from the Indian subcontinent and often vary in flavour depending on the recipe. Vanilla Black Tea has little in the way of a documented history, but when a brew tastes this good, does it really matter.

Health Benefits of Vanilla Tea: The time has come to explore the benefits of Vanilla Black Tea, and how it may have a positive impact on your waistline! This concept has long been supported by incredible scientific evidence. Although Green Tea has largely been in the spotlight recently regarding its weight loss properties, Black Tea; including, of course, Vanilla Black Tea; shares these very same properties despite being contrary to popular belief.
It should be noted, however, that Green Tea’s properties are likely stronger, but don’t let this put you off. In fact, two truly special antioxidants found in Black Tea known as theaflavin and thearubigin might be the answer to you losing those pesky pounds. When consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, the antioxidant strength of Black Tea can help boost the metabolism. This, in turn, helps the body to burn fat quicker, and far more efficiently.
