AVEDA Comforting Tea
During one of my trips to my local Aveda salon, while I was waiting for my full-body deep tissue massage, Kim, brought me out a cup of Aveda’s Comforting Tea.
Now, I’m an avid coffee drinker. I can not function as a human in the morning without having a cup of freshly made coffee. My son, bless his heart, wakes up every weekday morning at 5:40 am to make me a cup before I wake up. Have a mentioned before that he’s only 10? He actually set an alarm on his phone to wake up and make me a cup. I couldn’t ask for a better son!
I also drink tea from time to time. I’m a southerner so we drink sweet tea, but once I sipped the Aveda Comforting Tea, I was shocked at how much I liked it. Kim explained how she made it. At the salon, she makes it in a coffee machine but at home she uses a french press. I knew that I had to get me some for my house.
I actually found a french press at a thrift store I went to and bought it. I’ve always wanted one because they look so fancy-like. Now I actually have a reason to purchase one. I have a 3-cup and 8-cup Bodum french press.
This tea is great especially if you don’t want to drink coffee late in the evening because it is caffeine-free.
I did some research online when I came home from my appointment and saw that Pinterest has some homemade DIY recipes, but I just don’t have time for all of that. It is nice to have those options though if you do have the energy to go out and purchase the ingredients and take the time to come up with your own concoction. But for this chic, I’m happy with just grabbing the original Aveda bottle full of it already made for me.
They have it stocked in a bottle of loose tea or the tea bags. I prefer the loose tea. I think cost wise for me, it’s a better deal. You’ll get way more cups out of the loose tea version.
This is a drink that you can cuddle on your couch with while reading a good book, catching up on my blog, or watching your favorite tv show or movie.
I make mine with my french press, so I boil 3 cups of water then transfer the water to my french press and add a teaspoon of the Aveda loose tea. Then I stir the tea in the hot water and let it settle in my french press for 3-5 minutes. Then I place the french press plunger on the top while I’m letting the tea steep. After the 3-5 minutes, I slowly glide the plunger down to make sure that all of the loose tea goes down to the bottom of the glass and none escapes to be able to make it in my cup when it’s time for me to pour it in my fancy Paris themed cup. (Yes, I bought a cup just for my tea drinking because I’m just a little extra like that. 😊) After the loose tea is all settled at the bottom, I pour the freshly made tea in my cup and enjoy!
Enjoy a cup of comforting tea after a meal to aid digestion, or to relax and de-stress anytime.
