One place I wouldn't expect to find my new favorite tea is my hair salon. But that's what happened last time I stopped in for a trim. And as it turns out, it's no supermarket variety tea blend. Aveda salons and stores always have tea brewing. At first taste, I was surprised at the light flavor and sweet aftertaste. However, when I asked what the shop sweetened their tea with they told me it was a natural taste from the herbal blend and that the tea was unsweetened. Usually drawn to darker, heavily caffeinated teas, Aveda's blend turned me on to a light refreshing way to drink herbal (and decaffeinated!) tea. Sold by the bottle or a pack of sachets, I think the key is to brew it at double strength. This tea blend contains licorice root, which explains the sweet flavor. It also packs a light peppermint flavor, enhanced with sweet fennel, and basil. Have you tried Aveda's tea? • Find it: Aveda Comforting Tea, $26 for a 4.9 ounce jar at Aveda Related: Eating Light: Drink Herbal Tea Instead of Snacking (Images: Stephanie Barlow)
