Black Leaves is a tea company created after the owners took a trip to Thailand. After his mentor Anong helped his mum with her weight problem, Anthony was inspired to assist other people.
The company was created to provide high quality products to assist with balance your fitness goals, assist with healthy eating and promote an overall sense of wellbeing.
The instructions on how to use the teas are on the back on the packaging. Generally, you’ll place a teaspoon of tea in a cup of water at 80 to 85 degrees from 3-4 minutes. You’ll need to use a tea strainer or infuser. You can drink the beverages hot or cold.
Here are the teas I tried:
New Me 28 Day Teatox
A 28 day program containing a range of teas to alternative. Each tea has a handy number on it, so when you follow the program, you know which one to drink. The teas included are:
The Goji Berries Collection is aromatic mix of hibiscus, goji berries, lemongrass, chamomile, peppermint, liquorice root, elderberries, ginger root and safflower.
The Delices Des Abeilles is an appetite suppressant tea containing organic apple, hibiscus flowers, fennel seeds, currants, chamomile flowers, cornflower petals, jujube, and liquorice root.
Berry bay is a fruity tea containing organic blackcurrants, hibiscus flowers, rosehip shell, elderberries, bilberries, currants, cranberries, cornflower and blueberries.
Weight Loss Tea – Milk Oolong
The milk oolong from Taiwan is called Jin Xuan tea. You might be surprised at how large the tea leaves swell out to become. This was my favourite everyday tea.
Butterfly Pea Tea – organic
A lovely unique tea that is blue until you add something acidic, like lemon or lime juice. Then it changes to a purple colour. This tea helps to accelerate skin rejuvenation, banish dry skin, reduce redness and irritation and assist in regaining a youthful complexion.
Look out for the Beauty Me 28 day program to help you look fantastic.
About Black Leaves
Anthony Loggia created his first herbal blend inspired by the challenges his mother faced during her life.
When Mary was 37, she started to have health problems, caused by long working hours, stress and pressure, which led her to consume an excessive amount of coffee and unhealthy snacks.
In only 12 months, she gained over 20 kilos. Going from 65kg to 85kg, Mary started to feel self-conscious about her appearance and avoided going out, neglecting the most important things in her life: love, family and friends.
She spent the following ten years trying to lose weight, trialing many different diets, without achieving any real results.
Then, one day, during a trip in Thailand, Anthony had an argument with his girlfriend and he jumped on his motorbike and left. While he was driving around without a clear destination, he saw a local guide who was attempting to replace a flat tyre on the side of the road. He decided to stop and help her, and while they were chatting, the lady (whose name is Anong) noticed how frustrated Anthony was. She started to explain to him the negative effects accumulated toxins can have in the body. To thank him for his help, she offered him a pack of tea, a calming herbal blend. As they said goodbye, Anthony promised her that he would try it out…And try it out he did!
It was the first time in years that Anthony felt so relaxed and light-hearted. He started to wonder whether there were other herbs that could be used to help his mum get back into shape. With the guidance of his mentor Anong, he designed his first unique weight loss blend that, in only six months, brought his mum back to her original weight.
Impressed by the power that the right food and beverage can have on someone’s mental and physical health, Anthony started to research the ways in which herbs can improve overall health and wellbeing. After all, herbs have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, and for good reason!
By researching different varieties, they created a selection of blends to help others resolve their health issues such as unwanted weight or obesity, stress and anxiety and lack of energy. For example, their NewMe 28 program includes a perfect combination of herbs to maximise weight loss.
Since then, more and more women around Australia have been using these blends to turn their lives around, making Black Leaves one of the most loved boutique tea-sellers in Australia.
Anthony and the Black Leaves team couldn’t be happier that their carefully-curated products are making such a positive difference in people’s lives.
