I thoroughly enjoy Aveda’s comforting tea.
Ever since I started as a student in the Alpha phase, I’ve been drinking a cup at home at least three times a week. It has this sweet root taste that soothes the throat and stomach.
The tea bags are licorice root and peppermint-infused. The licorice gives it that smooth earthy and smoky note, while the peppermint gives it a refreshing and cooler sensation, creating a perfect blend to calm me down.
The peppermint herb is known to be a great way to calm and sooth any stomach discomfort. Peppermint also has many immune system benefits, carrying multiple vital vitamins to the body. Sometimes I rub peppermint oil on my stomach or I’ll just use the herb in a tea bag to make a pure hot peppermint drink.
Licorice root has a long list of benefits. It helps menstrual cramps, gastric issues, and skin problems. Many Aveda skin products have licorice extract which helps with disorders such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. Licorice extract is anti-inflammatory, which can be especially helpful for treating skin rashes and swelling.
Anyone who feels stressed, or just needs a soothing drink, should definitely try this tea. It doesn’t just keep you cool, calm, and collected, but it also tastes really good!
