Recently, I enjoyed getting fancy for a wedding at an Aveda salon in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was Halloween and all the employees were dressed up to celebrate the holiday. The Carolina cheerleader who checked me in for my appointment asked if I would like to have a cup of Aveda Tea. She told me it was made of licorice, fennel, basil, and peppermint. Now, I would not have thought of combining all those flavors together at once, and yet I still said, “I’d love to try a cup.” And I’m glad I did. It was calming and refreshing. It didn’t taste like any other tea I’ve enjoyed. It was a perfect complement to a relaxing day at the spa.
