Best Time to Drink Green Tea For Detox

The best time to drink this green tea detox drink is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

As for how often to drink detox tea, you should drink this beverage once a day for 7 consecutive days as a minimum.

You want to drink it for that long, so you give your body the chance to fully detoxify itself. 3 days is not enough.

If you are wondering how long detox tea takes to detox you, the answer is it varies. It varies from person to person.

Everybody is different, however, generally, you should start seeing results between 3 to 10 days. I personally started seeing results within the first week.

Other factors play a role in how well you detox. For example, if you eat a long of junk food alongside drinking detox tea, you won’t really get the results you want.
