The Best Teas to Drink in the Morning, Afternoon & Evening

Drink

There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea to start your morning—or maybe you’re all about an iced hibiscus on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Whether you’re just craving chamomile or are looking to ditch your coffee dependency, here’s our go-to guide on incorporating a few new teas into your daily routine! 


Morning Ritual // 9:00 AM

Want that extra morning energy without the caffeine jitters? Switch out your morning mug of coffee for a warm, energizing cup of earl grey. Serve as is or stir in some milk and honey for extra coziness. If you want to spice things up, try chai tea instead! The combination of cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger smells amazing and gives you that nice little flavor kick to start your day off right.

 

Mid-day Boost // 2:00 PM

If you’re feeling a little sluggish post-lunch, beat the afternoon slump with some lemon ginger green tea. Green tea can be a great alternative to coffee in the afternoon when you want that little boost of energy. An added benefit: lemon and ginger work together to aid digestion which is especially helpful after lunch. 

If you’re not into hot drinks, opt-in for a fruity iced green tea instead. Steep some honeydew or peach green tea in hot water for a few minutes and then pour over ice until it’s nice and cool. Enjoy with a slice of lemon, and you’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle any task. 

 

Evening Calm // 8:00 PM

Slip on some fuzzy socks, light your favorite candles, and fire up the kettle—it’s time to wind down after a long day. Grab yourself a soothing cup of lavender chamomile tea and indulge in some well-deserved self-love. 

 

Bonus sip // Any time of day!

Two words: peppermint tea. Perfect for all hours, peppermint tea is not only good for your immune system, but it can also support healthy digestion so you’ll be feeling great, no matter where you go or what you do.

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
