Hot, Spicy, or Sweet? Valentine's Day helps us beat the cold by offering a day we can snuggle up to someone we love. These Valentine Teas have just the right balance of heat, spice, and sweetness to warm you (and your Valentine!) up in the last winter month of the season. Here's the inside scoop on some of our favorite Valentine teas, and some twists on how to enjoy them for yourself, and with somebody you love.
HOT CINNAMON Sips by HARNEY & SONS TEA
Ok, this tea makes us think of the candy Red Hots (and we love it!). It has a natural sweetness, and a definite cinnamon kick. We think this tea stands just fine on it's own, but we also created a fun Tea Toddy cocktail recipe you can make - just because, for Superbowl Sunday (per our recommendation!) - or to fight off any last minute winter colds that come your way. Read the Tea Toddy cocktail recipe here.
MASALA CHAI Sips by RISHI TEA
Three words: GROWN-UP. HOT. CHOCOLATE. RISHI's Masala Chai is SO spicy, and SO good. This blend, in particular, is intended to be made the traditional way: stove top, with milk. Serve it hot, with any food that pairs well with cinnamon, clove, cardamom, or ginger. We like ours in the morning with cinnamon rolls.
RASPBERRY PECAN ROOIBOS Sips by ZHI TEA
This blend is aromatic, seductive, rich and flavorful. We loved the subtle sweetness and nutty flavor of this tea created by the organic pecan pieces, organic raspberry extract, and red rooibos. It makes for a caffeine-free and healthy treat that is so addicting - and perfect to impress your Valentine!
CHOCOLATE MINT Sips by PINKY UP
We get that drinking tea is not the same as eating ice cream, but try and tell that to your nose and taste buds. Pour yourself a mug of this chocolatey, refreshing concoction and you may just leave that ice cream in the freezer. Perfect as a stand-alone bedtime snack, or pairs with Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies (jussayin).
