If February 14th was a gentle reminder that you don’t have a special somebody, perk up and get ready to celebrate. February 15th is, unofficially, Singles Awareness Day. We’re not sure if this means we should celebrate the unattached people in our life or if we should just be aware that being single is an option. Either way, we’re always down for an excuse to drink tea and celebrate!
If You’re Your Favorite Valentine
There’s no shame in making yourself your own Valentine. If February 14th was all about self-love and self-care, let it spill over to Singles Awareness Day and keep giving yourself the attention you deserve. If you want to indulge in chocolate without feeling guilty about buying yourself a giant box of confections, opt for Aztec Spice. This dark chocolate, Pu-Erh blend has a hint of cinnamon and chili flakes, so even if your love life isn’t spicy, your tea will be.
For the single who loves the finer things in life, try an appropriately-named single-origin tea. These teas are specially sourced from gardens and growers all over the globe and are known for their high quality and fantastic taste. We suggest ordering your favorite sushi takeout to enjoy with a cup of Uji Gyokoru. Or, if you’re really looking to spoil yourself, try the decadent Alishan Oolong, a premium Oolong with notes of apricot, nectar, and flowers.
If Yesterday Wasn’t the Easiest
Even though today’s celebrating those without a partner, we know yesterday could get a little tough. It’s never fun celebrating couples when you’re proudly flying solo. Take your mind off of single-dom and cheer yourself up with two teas that are almost guaranteed to brighten your mood. It’s no surprise Feel Better and Happy are two of our most popular Wellness blends. With exciting spicy and fruity flavors, Feel Better uses Ayurvedic principles to help lift your mood. Featuring various botanicals and raspberry bits, Feel Better will help you feel all warm and fuzzy, regardless of your relationship status.
From the moment you open a bag of Happy, your day will brighten. It smells that good. With hints of raspberry and strawberry, our Happy blend is sweet and delicious. You’ll also get a kick of energy from the Guayusa and Jasmine green tea base!
If You’re Planning to Celebrate with Cocktails
If you’re planning to celebrate Singles Awareness Day with cocktails, we can help with that. Tea is an amazing mixer. Not only is it calorie-free (which helps when you’re mixing with high-calorie alcohols), but it adds complex and elegant flavors. You can try using a tea with strong flavor notes, like Hibiscus Cooler, as a simple mixer, or you can try your hand at a sophisticated cocktail. Round up your fellow single friends and celebrate yourselves today. Make Iced Green Gin Tea or Iced Peach Bourbon Tea if the weather’s starting to warm up. If it’s still chilly where you live, keep things classic with a delicious, tea-infused Hot Toddy. If people in a relationship can throw a party on a Tuesday, you can certainly throw a party on a Wednesday.
There’s no reason people with a romantic partner should have all the fun. Love should be celebrated, even if your love is just for a good cup of tea. Celebrate your independence and your joie de vivre this Singles Awareness Day and forget February 14th even happened. After all, it’s just a date on the calendar!
