Why was your original Cleanse taken off the market?
Regulations here in New Zealand now require any product containing ANY AMOUNT of senna to be sold either in a pharmacy, or for the manufacturing company to apply for a pharmaceutical licence. Along with all the other health food companies selling teas that included senna, we were unaware of this.
Was your Cleanse Tea harmful?
NO. Unlike many other cleanse or detox teas available in New Zealand, our tea was NOT senna-based. In fact senna leaf was by far the smallest component of the tea, representing only 10% of the product.
Tell me about your new Cleanse Detox
We consulted with a naturopath and a Chinese herbalist to find a new formula that would still give the same great benefits without using senna leaf. We've added rhubarb root to our formula which has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to help with digestive issues including bloating.
Do I need a tea infuser?
Yes , it's a loose leaf herbal infusion. We have a range of super cute infusers available for purchase on our website.
Does Cleanse Detox expire or 'go off'?
Tea does not expire, it's always safe to drink. However, we advise that you use the tea when it's fresh as not only will it taste better, the benefits will be greater too.
What's in the Cleanse Detoxtea?
Hawthorn , Senna Leaf, Dandelion Leaf, Raspberry Leaf , Gingko leaf & Fennel seeds
Where is it made?
Here in New Zealand.
Is the Cleanse caffeine free?
Can men use Cleanse Tea too?
Of course! Loads of men use our Cleanse Tea too!
How old do I have to be?
We recommend our Cleanse Tea for people aged 18 years and over.
Are there any side-effects from using the Cleanse Tea?
The only side-effects that may come from the use of our Cleanse Tea are those associated with the laxative effect from the Senna Leaf, however all people react differently to different things. If you have any allergies we recommend you look at our ingredients and check with your health professional BEFORE using our Cleanse Tea. If you are allergic to any Senna-based product or any of our Cleanse Tea ingredients, DO NOT USE THIS TEA.
Can I take Cleanse Tea if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
No, do not take our Cleanse Tea while pregnant or breastfeeding.
How long can I take the Cleanse Tea for ?
Because our tea is not Senna leaf-based and has less than a third of the recommended daily dosage in each cup, I have this tea every night - and have not had any problems or ill effects. Many of our customers have Cleanse Tea for one month, and then have a month off. But just to be safe, I would recommend that you talk to your health professional and get their advice.
