What Is Ballerina Tea?

Ballerina Tea is the name of a dieter's tea with an extreme laxative effect. It is an all-natural, caffeine-free green tea used by both men and women to lose weight.

Because of its laxative properties, Ballerina Tea typically causes stomach cramps and loose bowels. Users should expect extra bowel movements during the first two days of using Ballerina Tea. Steeping it for longer periods of time increases the laxative effects and discomforts; to lessen these, the tea is brewed at a lower concentration. Ballerina Tea is used twice daily for dramatic weight loss and decreased to one cup daily for maintenance.
