Quit Tea Product Review from an Ex-Smoker’s Perspective

Are you trying to stop smoking and thinking of using Quit Tea? Have you heard about this product from different people and wonder if it really works? Worried it might be a scam?

If you are answering yes to any of the above, you’ve come to the right place. You see, at one time I used to smoke cigarettes. And not just a few. I’m talking as many as two packs a day!

I know exactly what it is like to try and stop smoking. Let’s be real – it’s rough!

This is particularly true if you’ve been hooked on nicotine for a long time and struggle with withdrawal.

I know that was true for me. I smoked on and off for over 20 years.

When I tried to stop in the past, I’d always fail. The cravings would get so bad I couldn’t handle it. Like a wave, they’d wash over me and take my quit with it. Mind you, these cravings happened even when I was wearing a nicotine patch.

Tired of relapsing over and over, I decided to look for something natural to help me get through the hard moments.

That’s when I learned about Quit Tea from word of mouth. After using it for the past year, I’d like to share my experiences with you. What you are about to read is real. I’m a person who is naturally skeptical of hyped up products  – so keep this in mind as you read.

So, you are probably wondering: Does Quit Tea work and is it worth the money?

In my experience and speaking only for myself, I have to say the product was helpful. I’ve been off the cigs for over a year now and I don’t think I could have made it this far without the tea.

What I like about the product is its smooth taste and interesting smell. I’ll reveal what’s inside in a moment because I’m sure you are curious.

The important thing I communicate right now is this – I’m confident there is something about this tea’s aroma that helped crush my urges. I wish I could explain to you exactly what or why.

It smells like a cross between a cooked Thanksgiving turkey and black pepper. Not exactly the most attractive scent I suppose. But at the end of the day, I guess it doesn’t really matter.

Here’s how I’m using it.

Whenever a craving strikes, I boil water in a kettle. Then, I grab a packet of the tea and extract a bag. I plop it into a cup, pour in the hot water and let it steep for 30-seconds.

If the spirit moves me, I’ll even toss in a sliced lemon.

Once I start sipping on the tea, my urge starts to fade. I’m not saying it completely goes away. It doesn’t. But the intensity of my craving diminishes considerably.

Typically, I pay approximately $10.00-$11.00 for a box of 20 that I get from an online outlet. You can do a Google search and find several places that carry. Given the cost of cigarettes in Cook County, Illinois, the price is completely worth it – at least to me.

Now let’s talk about the ingredients because I’m sure you want to know what’s inside. All I can do is share what’s written on the box.

  • Valerian Root
  • Sarsaparilla
  • St. John’s Wort
  • Red Clover
  • Licorice
  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Burdock Flower
  • Cloves
  • Oregano
  • Fennel
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Black Pepper

Now I need to say that I don’t use the product nearly as much as I used to. That’s not because I grew tired of the tea. The truth is the cravings just don’t hit me as powerfully as they once did.

Wondering why? It’s simple. Once you stop smoking, nicotine cravings lessen in both frequency and intensity as time goes by. See this Smoke-Free page from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to learn more about withdrawal.

You may read other reviews on the web where people say the product is a rip off because cheaper teas provide the same experience.

In fact, I’ve even seen some reviews where it has been suggested that Quit Tea is nothing more than a powerful somatic hoax involving psychological trickery.

All I can say is this has not been my experience. If you are wondering the cost of Quit Tea, you can head over to Amazon to check prices.

Plus, even if the tea is all about the power of suggestion, I really wouldn’t care. When it comes right down to it, I need something that is natural and works.

Well, there you have it. My quick review of Quit Tea. Remember, I used this product a lot when I first quit and on the patch. I have no idea how effective it is as a standalone smoking cessation device.

You may be wondering if I still drink the tea and if so, how much? The answer is yes, I’m still using it.  But instead of downing 3-4 cups a day, I’m only drinking two (give or take) a week.
