I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starbucks. I received a promotional item and a gift card to facilitate my review.
Today I am excited to be talking about the special women in my life in honor of Mother’s Day and my love for tea!
My Mom, Sisters and I at my Sister’s wedding.
You guys have heard me talk about my Mom who has been a big influence in my life, whether it is cooking or being a great Mom, she has always inspired me. I recently visited her in Tennessee and got to spend some quality time playing with my kids and cooking up some new recipes. One thing I realized about my Mom while visiting is her love for tea. When I was visiting we took time out of each day to have a cup of tea. Tea is also a big part of my life at home and is something I drink one or two times a day.
My favorites are green and chai tea…
and I especially love steeping loose leaf tea.
Not only is tea good for your health, it offers a chance to sit down and take a break from the daily grind. Around the world, the ritual of steeping tea provides a time to pause and reflect each day and this is something I have also incorporated into my day.
I recently was given the opportunity to try Oprah’s new Teavana Oprah Chai Tea beverage at Starbucks and share it with a special woman in my life. Since my Mom lives 11 hours away I figured this was a good time to take a break from my crazy life as a Mom of two young children and reconnect with one of my close girlfriends. My friend Kristin is also a Mom to an 8 month old so she likes an excuse to get away for a little girl time. Of course most of our conversations are about our kids but it is great to connect and get a few minutes to ourselves!
We both sipped on a warm Teavana Oprah Chai Tea beverage and really enjoyed it. This chai has a little extra spice and really warms you up. It is a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos. It comes in an iced chai form or hot for those living in warmer climates.
This Mother’s Day, Starbucks will be offering a Buy One Get One Free Teavana Oprah Chai Tea beverage so you can try one for yourself and treat your Mom or another special woman in your life!
And in addition Starbucks will be making a donation for each Teavana Oprah Chai product sold to benefit educational opportunities for youth through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. You can’t beat that–supporting a great cause and treating your Mom to a yummy Chai Tea!
