VALENTINE GIFT: Rose Tea, Black & Herbal

For someone who’s counting calories and doesn’t want box of Valentine chocolate, how about some calorie-free rose petal tea?

Consider these limited edition offerings from Republic Of Tea:

  • Rose Petal Black Full-Leaf Tea: This blend combines the light spice of delicate, young rose buds and rose petals with the sweet fullness of China black tea. A Victorian tradition, it was served in fine porcelain cups to kings and queens. A 2.8-ounce tin, certified gluten free, makes 50-60 cups of tea; $11.50.
  • Russian Rose Caravan Tea: This blend was created to celebrate the recent film Anna Karenina. The tea has a profile like Anna’s: bold, passionate, beautiful and elegant. The blend tea pairs the rich wood-smoke signature of fine black teas from the Russian caravans (China black tea, India black teas, Lapsang souchong smoked tea) with rose petals and aromatic rose flavor. A tin of 50 tea bags is $9.50.

  • Raspberry Rose Hibiscus Tea Bags (herbal): Raise a cup of this romantic, caffeine-free blend, with its base of flavorful, healthful Nigerian hibiscus petals, sweet dried raspberries and delicate rose petals. The fruity and floral notes are spot-on for Valentine’s Day. Tin of 36 tea bags, $11.50; also available in bulk.
    There‘s also a caffeine-free Valentine Gift Tea Set: a tin of Cuppa Chocolate Strawberry Chocolate Tea (rooibos herbal tea with chocolate and strawberry) and one of Raspberry Rose Hibiscus Tea, $23.95. The teas are packed in an attractive, reusable gift box with a gold foil-embossed red lid. We couldn’t find it using the website’s search box on the site, so use the link above.

    For those who say “hold the roses, just give me chocolate,” there’s a Cuppa Chocolate Tea Sampler Cube, $23.95, with calorie-free, chocolate herb tea bags in:

  • Banana Chocolate
  • Coconut Cocoa
  • Peppermint Chocolate
  • Red Velvet Chocolate
  • Strawberry Chocolate
    Champagne is lovely, but tea is the best way to drink to your health on Valentine’s Day.
