Steeped in Beauty invites guests to indulge in an afternoon of tea and natural skin care through interactive cooking demonstrations and workshop sessions that highlight the impact of tea and natural beauty on health and wellness. This event will be lead by two Philadelphia residents passionate about wellness: Jolene Hart, a certified Beauty & Health Coach, natural beauty expert and freelance writer (, and Alexis Siemons, a tea consultant, freelance writer/creative business consultant, and the founder of teaspoons & petals (

At Steeped in Beauty, guests will taste their way through the world of tea with a variety of expertly-steeped sips of premium tea prepared and served by Alexis. In addition to exploring the proper tea making process, Alexis will demonstrate how to craft homemade herbal blends and infuse tea into healthy and creative dishes, such as a white chai smoothie, tea scones and lavender simple syrup. Alexis will take a closer look at tea basics, health benefits and even offer tips about hosting an imaginative tea party.

The afternoon continues with a discussion of the most important reasons to choose natural and organic beauty products, including essential tips for buying safe cosmetics and the critical link between nutrition and beauty, with special emphasis on the beauty benefits of tea. Guests will learn how to incorporate natural products into their current beauty routines and how to prepare their own soothing Green Tea Chamomile Hydrating Mist and purifying Green Tea & Honey Clay Mask, using recipes easy enough to recreate at home.

Beyond the tea and healthy treats prepared during the interactive cooking demos, guests will sample treats provided by Sweet Freedom, Philadelphia’s first and only completely gluten-free, vegan, allergen-friendly bakery. The lovely flower shop, Poppy, will be sharing a few of their delicate arrangements with us (one will even be nestled in a tea pot! hooray!).

Gift bags with our recipes, natural beauty samples, Rishi’s white detox tea/green oolong tea and other goodies are included. All guests will be entered to win one of several raffle prizes, including a personal health and beauty coaching session with Jolene, a tea party consultation with me, a haiku teacup from teaspoons & petals, a pint of Nectarine-Lime jam from Marisa McClellan from Food In Jars, gift certificates to Tbar, a tea & tea documentary film package from The Meaning Of Tea, and a wellness vacation consultation session with professional travel planner, Maya Northen.

Steeped In Beauty is the first in a series of tea and natural beauty workshops that will be held in the Philadelphia area throughout the year. The Steeped in Beauty series can be customized for private events.
