Three Ways to Stay Energized this Fall
As the seasons change and the days grow shorter, it can be hard to stay energized. Here are three ways to conquer jet lag and power through, for a fun-filled trip to Seattle.
Fresh Start: Start the day right in ART Restaurant with a custom blended juice with a variety of fresh and seasonal fruits. Each has its own benefit, like the Power Green Juice with apple, spinach and lemon. Add whey -soy protein powder to avocado and yogurt for some extra lift. Packed with essential vitamins and nutrients, your custom juice blend or smoothies can be the perfect way to keep energized throughout the day. Add a plate of baked egg whites with asparagus and hashbrowns or warm quinoa topped with market berries and you’re ready to take on travel plans.
Holistic: After a long day sightseeing, align the energies within your body with a Thai Energy Massage at The Spa. Influenced by yoga, ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, this blend of stretching and acupressure helps to adjust the skeletal structure, increase flexibility and relieve tension.
Energy On the Go: Catch freshly squeezed juice or a yogurt bar on wheels with Four Seasons Hotel Seattle’s Snack Bike. Have a pop-up energy bar sent to you anywhere in the hotel, just contact Concierge for details.
Four Seasons Hotel Seattle introduces premium, single-origin whole leaf tea from TeaVert. Sourced using eco-friendly cultivation practices, TeaVert’s Bai Hao Oolong, Mao Feng Green Tip, Adawatte Estate Pekoe and Herbal Infusion are available to the growing number of guests and visitors requesting premium tea service.
“While Seattle is known for amazing local coffee producers, we wanted to compliment that with a unique and authentic tea experience for our tea enthusiasts,” says Four Seasons Hotel Seattle Executive Chef Kerry Sear. “The fact that TeaVert is a Seattle-based company and they use sustainable harvesting practices and biodegradable products were even more reasons for us to partner with the company and be the first to introduce it.”
The tea is presented with an individually hand crafted single-use tea infuser, made and packaged in the USA from a fully biodegradable, FSC-certified white birch raw veneer. Each tea infuser is assembled utilizing a natural process without harmful use of chemical adhesives or staples.
Four tea blends are available in ART Restaurant and two through In-Room Bistro. The in-room menus are printed in English and Chinese.
