Tea has been a long-time complement to a relaxing spa experience. So, it’s no surprise that many spas are introducing innovative ways to incorporate it into a variety of offerings. At The Ballantyne (Charlotte, NC), the Rare Tea Company’s teas are a staple of the hotel’s Tea Program, which includes afternoon tea service, handcrafted tea cocktails, and more.

The teas are also available for retail at the The Spa at Ballantyne, which features a welcome tea ritual with the company’s jasmine white tea. Spa-goers who really want the full tea experience can also enjoy the Matcha Detox Massage ($180, 80 minutes), which involves a medium- to deep-pressure massage with hot stones, a warming cocoon wrap to promote circulation, and a soothing cup of the spa’s signature matcha tea.

At Sunrise Springs Spa Resort (Santa Fe, NM), guests can now take advantage of Tea Talks with Dr. Sally. The property’s onsite medical director, Sally Fisher, M.D., hosts an intimate discussion on the latest wellness topics, such as The Floating Brain and Breathing Heart, which explores approaches to reduce the effects of stress and related hormones on the body and brain. Whether it be in a soothing cup to enjoy or a treatment incorporating the antioxidant-rich ingredient, tea provides spas with the perfect excuse for the ultimate healthy infusion.
