This review is all about the Slimming Tea from Cha Tale which will be from the FLAVOR stand point only and NOT any actual slimming results, claims, etc. The reason I decided to review Slimming Tea from Cha Tale is because of the ingredients they used, the look of the dry contents prior to steeping, and the flavor after I infused them.
Slimming Tea from Cha Tale contains Chrysanthemum, Corn Silk, Dried Orange Peel, smoked plum according to the product description but I also see other ingredients including rock sugar, dried apples and/or Jujube, and I THINK Cassia Seed because I know Cha Tale uses Cassia Seed in their Detox Tea and it looks similar. The ingredients are HUGE and they seemed to infuse perfectly! All of the dried ingredients re-hydrated amazingly plump!
Now for the taste of Slimming Tea from Cha Tale…
I infused this using my Grosche Infuser. The 1st infusion at 5 minutes revealed a sugary, fruity, sweet flavor in my mouth and a aroma of a corn field in my nose! I felt like I was sitting in the middle of a corn field sniffing the fresh corn on the cob and the corn silk that comes along with it! There was an aroma of hay, too!
After another 5 minutes I sampled another small cup of the same infusion. The flavor was multiplied! Slimming Tea from Cha Tale – after 10 minutes infusing – was POPPING with flavor! I could taste tart and plump plum, citrus, apple, grain, and a pleasant sourness to it. Maybe what I thought was Jujube was actually dried cherries?? Not sure…but I LIKE IT!
After another 5 minutes which was the end of the infusion liquor in my infuser device of this Slimming Tea from Cha Tale I noticed the color of the infused tisane to be one of the most vibrant, golden colors I have seen in a long time! With this sip I could taste sweet and creamy notes along with berry and orange. Believe it or not I could pick up on the Corn Silk, too!
Slimming Tea from Cha Tale was an overly memorable tisane and I hardly – if ever – say that about an herbal! After looking at what was left in my infuser I noticed at least 1 – if not 3 – sliced dried (and re-hydrated) strawberries in the blend. I guess one could say I was completely fascinated by this herbal! And the taste was YUMMY, too! WOW! Something to remember that is for sure!
Here’s the scoop!

I hope that you write a follow-up in a few months about whether it slimmed you down.
Just kidding. Those claims actually infuriate me. I kind of wish the FDA would step in (like they do with actual foods and drugs, but not teas/supplements) and shut that down. Consumers don’t deserve to be conned by stuff like that.
Or maybe the tea actually IS slimming, in which case that’d be super-nice to have a double-blind test FINALLY giving me the antidote to eating cheesecake and not exercising much.
