Chocolates, candies, and flowers tend to be go-to gifts for Valentine’s Day. If your beau loves tea as much as they love you, you might want to forego the candy hearts for Camellia sinensis this year. Of course, you can still give tea without skimping out on flowers. In fact, you can give tea that is full of flowers or a tea that even becomes a flower. Step up the romance and brew up some love this Valentine’s Day with these perfect gifts.
The easiest way to include flowers in your gift to that somebody special is through a floral tea. Our favorite for Valentine’s Day is our wedding tea, Now & Forever. Green and oolong teas form the base of this beautiful tea, with Jasmine flowers and rose petals to give this tea a brilliant bouquet.
There’s a reason we once called our Tuscany blend “Amore.” The romantic mix of mint, Silver Needle, and rose petals creates a delicate drink your sweetheart will love. Pair this tea with chocolate covered strawberries for the perfect gift.
If you want to look through all of our floral teas, you can search by tasting note by selecting the “floral” tasting note filter on the left side of the page.
Why give a single red rose when you can give several blossoming flowers that deliver beauty and flavor? (Last we checked, you couldn’t eat roses.) Blooming teas are a great gift for a few reasons. For starters, they’re a novelty. There isn’t another tea that delivers the fascination and entertainment that you get from a blooming tea. One of these bulbs will deliver a whimsical performance when dropped in a clear vessel full of warm water.
Unlike loose leaf teas, blooming teas come in a larger, single orb. When dropped in hot water, the tea leaves in the orb begin to unfurl, exposing a surprise flower inside. We suggest Blooming Bliss if your significant other likes green tea. For the angel in your life who prefers white tea, Halo is a wonderful option.
Of course, sometimes we forget about Valentine’s Day and we have to scramble at the last minute. If you order a Tea of the Month for your Valentine before February 12th, you’ll still get the February shipment. Finding yourself in hot water and looking for a gift on the 13th or 14th? We suggest treating your sweetie to an Art of Tea gift card so they can treat themselves later.
