Love is in the air! Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and we’ve put together a curated list of beautiful tea gifts for that special tea lover in your life. This is the time to express love and affection to those closest to us, whether that be a significant other, family member, or friend. Here at Tea with Tae, we think the best way to show that love and affection is through the gift of tea. It not only makes for a warming and delightful drink, but, more importantly, it also provides a great way to spend time with someone special and create a moment of relaxation and intimacy.
When it comes to Valentine's Day and tea, there are many ways to incorporate the two. Here’s some ideas:
Valentine’s Tea Bento Box ($31.95 - $39.95 + FREE Shipping)
Our limited edition Valentine’s Day Tea Bento Box is a perfect Valentine’s gift for the tea-lover in your life. This limited edition Tea Bento Box comes with 4 or 6 mini tea tubes with 5 premium tea sachets in each. The 4-pack has 20 total tea sachets, and the 6-pack has 30 tea sachets. The tea blends included in the Valentine’s Tea Bento Box 4-pack include Fruit & Berry Oolong, Caramel Rooibos, Chocolate, and Spa Bliss. The 6-pack includes those same 4 tea blends plus Lavender Earl Grey and Jasmine Green Tea.
Plus, each Valentine’s Tea Bento comes with 2 chocolate bars of your choice - Tea Chocolate (made with black tea leaves), Mint Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and Lavender Chocolate.
To make your gift extra memorable and meaningful for your special someone, consider adding a Valentine’s card for only $5 extra. We will handwrite the card for you based on the message you include.
White Peony Loose Leaf + Chocolate Bundle ($19.95 + FREE Shipping)
Another excellent gift option that is even more budget friendly than our Valentine’s Tea Bento Box is our White Peony Loose Leaf Tea + Chocolate bundle. This is our first foray into the loose-leaf tea world, and we’re launching with none other than a famous white tea traditionally known as “Bai Mu Dan.” The tea has a delicate, toasty aroma with slightly sweet floral notes and a clean aftertaste. This is a must-have for any tea connoisseur.
This limited edition Valentine’s gift also comes with 2 chocolate bars of your choice - Tea, Mint, Dark, or Lavender. And of course, if you want to elevate and personalize your gift a bit more, consider adding on one of our Valentine’s Day cards for only an additional $5.
To fully enjoy the loose leaf White Peony, you will need proper steeping teaware. One of our favorite loose leaf tea pots is this sleek little teapot from Tealyra. You can buy it here on Amazon for under $30.
Large Tea Tube Bundle ($49.95)
Another great Valentine’s Day Gift option is our Large Tea Tube bundle, which boasts a selection of 6 of our bestselling lage tea tubes for only $49.95 (a $27+ savings vs. buying them individually). For the heavy tea drinkers in your life (maybe yourself?!), this is a wonderful gift. It comes with two of our bestselling herbal blends, Honella and Peppermint, and four of our bestselling caffeinated blends, Lavender Earl Grey, Jasmine Green, Bombay Chai, and Fruit & Berry Oolong.
Tea for Two (or more!)
Last but not least, one of our favorite tea gifts is, well, literally having tea! That’s the whole point, right? Tea is a wonderful beverage, but it’s truly the quality time and relationship-building over tea that mean the most. One of our favorite places to have afternoon tea in Denver, Colorado is the Brown Palace Hotel. They have an incredible Afternoon Tea experience, where the elegance of this English tradition is recreated between each sip of tea and bite of delicate sandwiches and pastries. The Afternoon Tea is held in the 130-year-old hotel’s lobby, a room that extends upward revealing eight floors of beautiful decorations culminating at a stained-glass ceiling. If you’re lucky, you’ll also be entertained by one of the talented virtuosos on the piano.
Valentine's Day and tea are a perfect match. The gift of tea is not only a thoughtful and unique gift, but it also provides an opportunity to create a special moment and share a relaxing and intimate experience with your loved one. This Valentine's Day, consider giving the gift of Tea with Tae and creating an unforgettable experience for your loved one.
