Thanks for the query.

The ideal weight in kgs = height in cms-100.
Body mass index should be between 19 to 24.
If according to these you are over weight then you can try to decrease the weight.
The manufacturers of Dr.Tea are telling that it will decrease the weight without causing any side effects.
But there are no any scientific evidences or proved studies regarding this.
Probably it may decrease the appetite there by limit the intake of food leading to decreased weight.
Usually herbal tea like XXXXXXX tea etc are said to healthier but we have to remember that just by drinking tea our problem will not solve completely.
Along with that you have to maintain strict diet chart, should do exercises for 30 to 45 minutes in a day, 5 days in a week.
You can join any gym or take help of professional person in doing exercises or can do yoga, walking etc at home which will surely help.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

According to your height your weight should be around 55kgs.
And your BMI is 27.
So you can continue the exercises and diet management.
According to the manufactures Dr.Tea contains natural herbs and XXXXXXX tea.
The natural herbs they mentioned, Nagarmotha, Sonti, Triphala Extract,Tagar etc are in general good for health.
So though the actual purpose of decreasing the weight is doubtful, this tea may not cause any harm to general health as it is having only herbal ingredients.
So you can try it, but if any problem occurs better to stop taking.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
