I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting #MC for Starbucks. I received a promotional item and a gift card to facilitate my review. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it is such a great time to tell mom how much we love and appreciate her. For adult daughters, it is also a time to re-connect with our moms. When we move away from the nest and have families of our own, it becomes more difficult to find time to hang out with our moms. If this sounds familiar, here are just a few ideas to let you take mom out and catch up with your busy selves!
3 Ways You Can Spend More Time With Mom
- Take A Spa Day: What a great way to spend quality time with mom than with a relaxing massage and beauty treatment. While you are getting your massage, you can catch up and see what is going on in each other’s lives.
- Take A Class: This is a fun way to not only spend time with your mom but to learn something new as well. You can take a photography, cooking, gardening or perhaps a painting class together.
- Take Her Out: If you just have an hour or two to spend, take mom out for coffee or tea. With the new Teavana Oprah Chai Tea at Starbucks, you and mom can catch up over a delicious cup of tea and soothe your souls at the same time!
I recently had the chance to spend some quality time with my mom and grandma. We went out together for some tea time and were able to try the new Teavana® Oprah Chai Tea. This tea has a deliciously bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, which are blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos. The ritual of drinking tea has given people all over the world time to reflect and relax for centuries.
People have been participating in this ritual at Starbucks since 1971, when Starbucks Coffee, Tea and Spices was founded. Oprah and Starbucks have a shared love of tea as well as giving back, so when these two came together to create this tea, it was magical. This is a first collaboration of its kind between Oprah and Teavana, who had their leading teaologists to personally develop this tea just for her!
This product is sold at Teavana and Starbucks locations to provide educational opportunities for youth through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. To learn more about this wonderful opportunity for these children, you can visit the Steep Your Soul website. You can get this amazing tea in either the handmade latte at Starbucks, or you can take the loose tea and brew it at home. The Teavana® Oprah Chai Small Gift Box, which retails for $50 at Starbucks, is a beautiful small gift box which includes a 2 oz. tea plus a double wall glass
tumbler and stainless steel filter. The Teavana® Oprah Chai Pre-Packaged Loose Leaf reusable storage tin, offers 2 oz. of the loose-leaf tea for $15.

The Teavana® Oprah Chai Large Gift Box makes a great gift for mom with 8oz. of tea, two cups and a tea pot and is available at Teavana stores for $120.
