I just finished a five-day tea cleanse with Iaso Tea (http://5in5healthchallenge.com/). If you order the tea, there is a free gift!
The cleanse was very easy. You could just eat as you usually do drink eight ounces with lunch and dinner. The tea is delicious, reminding me a bit of a green tea. I had no side effects (though some who are not as healthy as I am might have diarrhea). After five days I lost 2.5 pounds. But the real good news is, I’ve been sleeping a lot better. The tea is naturally relaxing and I feel really great all day!
