In brief: Ballerina Tea

I looked up ballerina tea and it contains two ingredients: malva verticillata and cassia angustifolia which are known as Chinese mallow and senna.
They are both powerful laxitives and diuretics. So I would have to say NO! It is not safe to drink for you. Any weight you lose will come right back and you will probably lose your milk.
