We honor a season of love and giving in the month of February. Whether you are spoiling a special someone or showing yourself some extra care, tea is always a great gift. Put on a pot of water and get ready to choose a blend that is calling to you for Valentine’s Day, a date night, or a gift to give to your partner or to treat yourself.
Why gift someone with cinnamon tea this time of year? Cinnamon is a naturally warming spice. It’s known to be used in many culinary dishes, both sweet and savory, and its aroma is recognized as rich and welcoming. Cinnamon can help to energetically open our hearts and connect us with our inner wisdom.
Another wonderful herb in this tea blend is Calendula. Calendula is known for its healing properties such as soothing and aiding digestion. Like cinnamon, it can provide warming and drying energy, which can feel super supportive in the depths of winter months. It is a flower of happiness, joy, and warmth, and pairs perfectly with cinnamon.
Enjoying a hot cup of this gently nourishing tea can bring a calm awareness to the body and soul. Sharing it in love with a friend or partner can invite a deep bond of connection.
There’s no denying this cinnamon tea is perfect for this season of gratitude. Treat yourself or your loved one to a hot cup of this uncomplicated and nourishing black tea, sweetened with a little raw honey, if desired.
Calendula is featured again here in the Sweet Spot Black Tea. This time it is accompanied by cacao nibs.
Cacao is considered a complex superfood, rich in flavanols which support heart health. It is also known throughout ancient cultures as an energetic heart opener - perfect for connecting with your sweetheart (and your own heart!).
Rose hips are another wonderful companion to this blend as they are also high in antioxidants, and have a sweet energy to them that both tone and soothe. It is a beloved cold-season herb to employ for overall wellness and vitality.
This tea blend is infused with the essence of vanilla and butterscotch, which makes it reminiscent of a butterscotch blondie. Chocolate, vanilla, and sweet notes definitely hit the "sweet spot" without being over-the-top sugary. Try it with a splash of organic cream or non-dairy milk.
One of the best ways to spoil your sweetheart or really treat yourself is to create space for some “me time”. Consider drawing a warm bath, sprinkled with bath salts and essential oils that are grounding, such as rose, eucalyptus, or vetiver (a super woodsy scent).
Prepare a loving cup of Self herbal tea to enjoy for the bath or simply cozy up with it next to a rainy window, or carry it with you in a travel mug on a healing nature walk.
This lovely herbal tea features elderberries which are outright phenomenal when it comes to self-care. The Elder Tree is referred to as the Tree of Life, and all parts of it have been used for magic and healing over the centuries; it is revered for its medicinal properties.
Packed with antioxidants and vitamins, elderberries support the immune system, help reduce stress, and protect the heart. It has long been used for safeguarding love, home blessings, and natural healing.
The Self Care herbal blend also boasts cheery Marigold. Marigold represents auspiciousness and the divine. The bright colors signify the warmth of the sun and its energy, as well as passion and creativity.
This Plum Deluxe fan favorite is a honeybush blend that pairs the tart, refreshing notes of elderberry with crisp, sweet apricots, peaches, and apple pieces. You and your loved ones will feel the stress of the day melt away with every sip.
Tea is an absolutely perfect gift to celebrate love. Seemingly humble ingredients, tea offers its complex and kind energy to us when we need it. Sip slowly and intentionally, and welcome the gratitude and joy for each and every moment, shared with loved ones, or on your own.
