Tracy Stern's SALONTEA, The Natural Beauty Brew - Review

Rooibos with a Cinnamon Vanilla Twist

Tracy Stern's SALONTEA - The Natural Beauty Brew

With change as the resounding theme of the start of every new year, help bring about your own personal plan of action with a cup of a healthy brew. Tracy Stern's SALONTEA The Natural Beauty brew is said to help quench your body as well as your spirit. This slightly tart tea comes in a hot pink-colored canister that is hard to miss, and is loaded with a rooibos and cinnamon vanilla twist blend which also includes apple bits, orange peel, lemongrass, berries, cloves and star anise. Regular consumption of this caffeine-free brew is said to result in glowing skin, healthy hair and strong nails, as well as help with insomnia, irritability, headaches, hypertension and other ailments. Special ingredients like rose are said to soothe and calm nerves as well as assist with attaining a more relaxed state of mind.

Although we didn't try this tea for long enough to see our nails grow stronger or our hair become shiny, we did agree that it was a delicious change to our everyday routine. And isn't change exactly what the new year is all about?

Price: $17 for 5 oz. loose leaf tin.
