FAQ

How do I make the tea?

To make your Tea, simply add a full glass of hot water to the tea bag and let it seep for 5-10 minutes. That simple.

What do the teas look like?

The Teas look like basic tea bags, all hand made in NYC out of the highest quality traditional Chinese herbs. Normally, Chinese herbs need to be boiled and drunk as a warm, thick liquid. We at I.AM.YOU. know you do not have time for that, and can’t be seen drinking something weird and smelly at work. So we package the herbs as any other tea bag, straight up and simple with no frills, thus merging East & West, tradition and modernity. We ensure that what is inside is of the highest quality and value, but provide it for you in a way you can easily relate to.

What do the teas taste like?

The Teas taste like tea. Real tea that is doing something to help your insides better. They have scents and flavors of the flowers, land, and sea around you. Some you may love and wish to sip on all day long. Others you may just find o.k., but all of them are tasting unbelievable to your poor organs in need.

What is in the teas?

Each Tea is a handmade proprietary blend of Traditional Chinese Herbs, three different herbs per tea. There is one recipe, or blend, for each major digestive organ of the body. Combined these three recipes make up the DETOX to RETOX programs.

What can I eat while I’m on the cleanse?

Almost everything! There is no way to get healthy without real, whole food, after all. Your accompanying meal plan includes three meals a day and two snacks, all consisting of normal, solid food that you may or may not incorporate in your diet already. The key to the food and Menu Plan is the precise combination of foods we have created, together and throughout the day, and the way they combine with the Teas.

What is the difference between the 3 DAY, 7 DAY and 4 WEEK cleanse programs?

A 3 Day cleanse is three days. 72 hours. 3 teas a day. 9 teas total. It is perfect to pick you up and make you feel better when you have no time to stop, plan, or think. It is 100% focused on the liver, the body’s most important digestive and metabolic organ. Think of it as the quick fix to leave you lighter, more energetic, and more vibrant in shortest amount of time possible.

A 7 Day cleanse is seven days. One week. 3 teas a day. 21 teas total. It goes a little deeper and more thoroughly into the workings of your organs, without being painful. You just need to be ok with skipping the martinis at the Saturday night rager for its full effects. Two teas a day are liver focused, and the third is either for your kidneys or stomach and spleen. Think of it like a week at the spa for your organs.

A 4 Week cleanse is the most thorough DETOX to RETOX program. Week one focuses on your liver. Week two on your stomach and spleen. Week three on your kidneys. Week four on your liver again as it is considered the most important organ in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is longer, but it is stronger, and will leave you feeling like new. Think of this as a retreat for your inner workings.

How do I know which cleanse is right for me?

The cleanse that is right for you is the one that you want to do. If you are wary and impatient do the 3 Day. If you are able to follow a program for a bit more, go for the 7 Day. If you want a complete overhaul, go for the 4 week.

Are the teas safe for consumption?
