Relax, it’s tea time. {Teavana Giveaway: 5/6/13}


Shhh. Listen. What do you hear? The sweet sound of rich foliage rustling with the breeze, in a Jamaican mountain way up high. You sway side to side, swaddled in your hammocked bliss. Tea steeping on the side table.

You wake up, and realize it’s a dream.

The photo above was taken during the Yoga & Wellness retreat I attended in 2011. The events may not be as fresh in my mind as they were when I returned from the retreat, but I am still able to somehow rejuvenate when I think about the awesome time I had.

Of course we can’t all make a mad dash to our favorite destination, but as moms, we need to retreat, even if it’s just a few scattered moments throughout the day. I like to spend quiet time on Pinterest and Bloglovin’, lurking reading blogs for inspiration. Drinking tea plays a huge role in my relaxation time too. I honestly drink it all day long. It’s a small way of retreating, while still being present.


Teavana Tea Party

Teavana wants to celebrate MOM by offering a Sophistishe reader a tea party set including these yummy goodies:

· Cherry Blossoms Japanese Cast Iron Teapot in Silver-Pink

· Berry Kiwi Colada: Loaded with mango, kiwi, prickly pear, pineapple, and strawberry with a hint of coconut

· Fig Rose: Fig slices, apple, and pineapple flourish with rose, hibiscus and a touch of almond

· Dragonfruit Devotional Herbal Tea: Sweet fruit notes from guava, strawberry and dragonfruit with a floral finish from rose and magnolia

· Youthberry White Tea: Refreshing sweet pineapple and fruity acai berry infusion with subtle floral finish

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Blueberry Mojito sounds great. I’m drinking Strawberry Rose Champagne & Peach Tranquility. :)

    I love their teas, especially the Blueberry Mojito that I bought for iced tea last summer. I’m going to enter!
