Let me spill the tea on Fit Tea.
If you’re one of the millions of people who follow the Kardashians on social media, you’ve *PROBABLY* seen one of their Instagram posts where they’re clutching a bag of Fit Tea in one of their assorted Calabasas mansions:
They usually caption their picture with something about how they couldn’t survive without the beverage, but — SURPRISE — they’re getting paid to sponsor the product!
OK, so the Kardashians LOVE shilling for Fit Tea. But how trustworthy is a fitness tea endorsed by Kris Jenner’s spawn — could it possibly work, or is it 21st-century snake oil?
The ingredients listed on Fit Tea's packaging are rooibos, green tea, ginger, oolong, pomegranate, stevia, guarana, citric acid, sea salt, lemon juice, honey, matcha green tea, and garcinia cambogia extract. A full explanation of what each of these ingredients does according to Fit Tea can be found here. On its packaging, Fit Tea also advertises as a « blend of all natural ingredients » that « promotes fat burning & weight loss, » while it also « improves your immune system » and « soothes & cleans your digestive system. » So there's a lot going on here.
