Terrific Teas for your Valentine's Day Teatime

Terrific Teas for your Valentine's Day Teatime

Valentine’s Day is a significant day in everyone’s calendar, as it is a day in which people appreciate the love and kindness of their friends, family, and partners. While it is a custom to gift something that is appreciated, it is without doubt that the avid tea drinker will be very happy to be given some specialty tea with some unique flavours. And what better way to celebrate, other than with Dilmah’s many terrific teas and tea gifts to go with it? Here are just three flavours we recommend that certainly make for the perfect mood to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Rose Tea

A cup of black tea infused with the aromatic elements of Rose and French vanilla, adds a unique take on our Rose with Fresh Vanilla tea. Offering the unique flavours of rose and French villa, it’s the perfect tea to enjoy with your significant other.

How To Brew Rose Tea

Preparing the Rose with French Vanilla Tea is not a difficult task, regardless of whether you choose from the Exceptional Selection or the t-Series Gourmet Selection.

  • Boil fresh spring water to a temperature of around 95˚C-100˚C
  • One teabag or one teaspoon (2.5g) of tea leaves in a cup
  • Add 220ml of boiled water per person
  • Let it brew for 3-5 minutes
  • Serve with a rose petal as garnish

Gifts, accompaniments, and other recipes with Rose Tea

There are many things that go well with this specific tea that would please your significant other. The easiest accompaniment would be to accompany the beverage with some light cakes that you have freshly baked, or even some berry fruits to show that you care. If you do want to take it up a notch, you do not even have to make the tea at all, but use a special rose tea recipe from Dilmah that uses its leaves and other ingredients to create the sensational Rose with French Vanilla Cosmopolitan cocktail.

Make the shared moment even more special by accompanying with an afternoon tea gift, such as double wall glasses, or even some Dilmah branded cups and saucers to enjoy the moment of flavourful tea.

Italian Almond Tea

Combine the finest Ceylon Gourmet Black Tea with the aromatic flavour of Italian and almond, and you have got yourself a blend of bittersweet symphony in your palettes, all made possible with pure Ceylon Tea. Having a sip of this exquisite beverage with your significant other, or even your close friends and family, will certainly make Valentine’s Day all the more special.

How To Brew Italian Almond Tea

Brewing our Italian Almond Tea, be it from the Dilmah t-Series Gourmet Selection or the Exceptional Selection is easy to do;

  • Boil fresh spring water to a temperature of around 95˚C-100˚C
  • One teabag or one teaspoon (2.5g) of tea leaves in a cup
  • Add 220ml of boiled water per person
  • Let it brew for 3-5 minutes
  • Serve straight without any additives

Of course, if you and your significant other are interested in the traditional manner of how tea is served, then drinking it straight would be the ideal option, however, there are other inventive ways to make Valentine’s even more special with this unique variant.

Gifts, accompaniments and other recipes with Italian Almond Tea

If both of you do opt to drink this beverage straight, make sure it is accompanied with some sweet cakes and pastries, as the flavour and aroma give a sense of calmness & comfort with each other. Make it even more special by referring to our specialty recipes to make your very own Cucumber and Italian Almond Tea jelly, or Italian Almond t-Ice Cream.

Of course, it would not be complete without a gift too. A set of fine Dilmah cups, saucers, or even a teapot would come as a good gift with the tea.

Vanilla Ceylon Tea

Made from the best of Ceylon Single Region Tea, the creamy and rich aroma of vanilla makes the beverage all the more special, especially if it is shared by you and your lifelong partner, as the balanced combination is a perfect reflection of marriage and its tenets.

  • One teabag or one teaspoon (2.5g) of tea leaves in a cup
  • Add 220ml of boiled water per person
  • Let it brew for 3-5 minutes

While drinking this beverage straight is a unique experience in itself for the both of you, accompanying it with a few snacks and gifts make it all the more special on a day like Valentine’s Day.

Gifts, accompaniments and other recipes with Vanilla Ceylon Tea

As this is an exquisite tea beverage that is made with the finest of tea leaves in the highlands of Ceylon, the tea should be accompanied with cheddar cheese, scones, and marzipan cakes.
