I initially got this tea because I am trying to lose weight. One my first bag I timed it properly as per the instructions and made the mistake of squeezing the bag after I removed it from the cup and it was too strong --for my first cup--as the main ingredient is a natural Chinese laxative--it works but do as the instructions state and not as I did--increase the strength of the tea gradually and you will be happy with the results. Thanks WELL.CA!! :)
