The Best Tea Ever

Sip this to fight cravings

I am currently in the middle of Catalyst‘s five-day juice and raw foods cleanse (which I will tell you all much more about soon!), but I simply couldn’t wait to share the only thing that’s kept me from breaking down and raiding the fridge throughout this entire no-caffeine, no-chewing (the first three days were all juice!) experience: Mighty Leaf Organic African Nectar tea. It’s one of the best—if not the best—tea I’ve ever had, and I’ve been amazed that, in addition to completely enjoying it, I haven’t really missed my Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, which has been a morning ritual during the workweek for years. Another plus: I probably cut out close to 100 calories by using lemon to sweeten my tea in lieu of cream in my coffee.

I discovered the tea at Marathon, but you can also find the Mighty Leaf brand at a bunch of local spots, including Whole Foods, Grocery and Wegmans. Two of my co-workers just told me they’re addicted to the Vanilla Bean and Spring Jasmine, and that this tea has helped them slowly wean themselves off of caffeine.
