Posh spice Pur-erh tea trial

By Aisling | November 25 2006 | 19 Comments

I’ve purchased a box of Victoria Beckham’s fave slimming product, Pur-erh Tea and the kettle’s boiling for my first cup! 1lb a day weight loss? This tea promises much – but does it deliver? It’s supposed to:

  • stimulate digestion
  • reduce hunger
  • detoxify
  • purify the blood
  • reduce cholesterol
  • strengthen the immune system
  • and reduce bodyfat! Phew!

I know it’s usually expensive (apparently if you hunt around in Chinese markets etc you can get it for much less). Tales of its limited availability are greatly exaggerated though – I got mine in Hickey’s (€18 for 20 teabags).

You use each bag three times. Bit sceptical, but, we’ll see. I’ll let you know how I get on in a couple of weeks …

    So that’s what’s wrong with poor Posh and the awful cross way she has of looking at you! A good cup of Barry’s is what she needs!

  • glittergirl says:

    Well what I imagine ass tastes like anyway…………

    It tastes like fish! Fish tea! I bought three packets of pu-erh compressed black tea in a tea shop in Covent Garden a few months ago – it was 2.30sterling per pack – we are being robbed in Ireland…that said, as it tastes like fish, I only had about five cups. Ho hum.

    smells like fish and arse! well that would put you off your food alright!

  • Scarlett says:

    NOOOOO!!! Silly girls! Ok, I was gonna do the unthinkable & pay 20squid for it after hearing first hand from a friend who went down a dress size after three weeks taking it & not changing her diet in any other way – it’s a great sell – but instead decided to check the asia market first. 3.90 for 20 tea bags! It’s a different brand but the same smelly stuff!

  • Admin says:

    Which Asian market? I need to get me some of this stuff pronto.

  • glittergirl says:

    The one on Abbey Street has it

  • Scarlett says:

    I went to the one behind george’s Street arcade but I’m sure you can get it in most of them!

    Everyone in Ireland I would like to inform you that you can buy Robert Roberts Pur-erh Tea in Dunnes. It costs around €3.75 for a packet of 40 tea bags.
