~I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starbucks. I received a promotional item and a gift card to facilitate my review.~
Since I was little I remember sitting across the table from my Mom while she sipped her coffee and talked about life. I grew up at that table and later joined her in steamy cups with vanilla cream. It became something special for us, these conversations. What began as Mother and child became Mother and Mother; the steam of coffee encompassing our friendship.
I introduced my Mom to Starbucks when she came to visit me in Seattle years ago when I’d ran away to the Northwest. She got a little stuck on White Chocolate Mocha’s and never did get around to trying anything else. This Mother’s Day I’m really excited to share with my best friend, my mom, something new! I’ve already snuck away and tried the Teavana Oprah Chai Tea on opening day and I know she’ll absolutely love it! It’s a bold black spiced tea with roobios, a popular South African herb rich in antioxidants. The warmth of the chai gets under your skin like spicy foods and you can’t help but feel comforted by it.
What is also special about the Teavana Oprah Chai Tea is that for each purchase a donation is made to benefit educational opportunities for youth through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. You know how important education for children is to me, so purchasing a delicious drink that will help a child build their future is a wonderful gift. So whilst you are out and about tomorrow treating your favorite Mom, you can not only get a Buy One Get One Free Teavana Oprah Chai Tea, but you also give a gift to a child’s educational future.
You can also purchase the tea to take home! I have the loose leaf at home version and oh my goodness, there is nothing better at the end of the day! It’s best to steep the tea and then add warm milk with a little honey. That’s how I personally melt all the stress.
I was really glad I got to take my Mom out for an Oprah Chai. It’s been a long week for both of us and we don’t get a lot of time away from the kids to spend together. These moments of conversation over steaming cups may be few and far between, but they carry on in us forever. I can only hope with my whole heart that my children one day find spending a few hours with me at Starbucks with a cup of tea to mean just as much.
Take your special Mom out to Starbucks for the BOGO Teavana Oprah Chai Tea, give her the gift of your time. At an era when text has taken over our spoken words, conversation is a priceless gift.
