How to Show You Care on Valentine’s Day
The run-up to the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day, maybe a little hectic for partners all around the world. You’re probably scouring your kitchen for a crispy white or a full-bodied red wine, along with a tantalizing home-cooked meal to surprise your partner. However, it pays to try something different every year.
This year, give your partner the healthy gift of tea. There’s a reason why philosophers coined the catchphrase, ‘tea for two.’ Choose from a selection of sophisticated and luxurious offerings that will make your better half feel even more special. Or better yet, impress him or her with a surprise breakfast and lunch set up with fine Darjeeling teas that will captivate them with an impressive taste profile. Darjeeling tea leaves are a result of years of hard work and tea craft that is only possible due to the local climate, altitude, soil conditions, and meticulous work of tea growers.
In fact, it isn’t unheard of for Darjeeling tea from the same tea estate to taste different depending on which year it was harvested. These are known as flushes, the most popular of which include first flush, second flush, and third flush.
Which Tea Should You Choose?
You could brew a delicious batch of Darjeeling tea varieties, including first flush, second flush and third flush, to spice things up. The idea is to explore as much of the musky-sweet tasting notes of Darjeeling tea as possible. Some people also describe Darjeeling descriptors that include fruity, mossy, and even citrus flavors.
Golden Tips Tea gives you unparalleled access to ultra-rare teas to help you make Valentine’s Day just a tad bit more special. Your afternoon menu could be savory sweets and tasty crustless quiches to tantalize your loved one’s taste buds.
At the heart of the Golden Tips Tea range is Darjeeling First Flush - a beautiful beverage that originates from the legendary tea estates in Darjeeling.
Brewing Darjeeling tea requires some patience though.
- Start by boiling up water in a kettle. Do not microwave the water because it will affect the brewing process.
- Use 1 tbsp of tea for each cup into the teapot.
- Once the water has started to boil, carefully pour it into the teapot.
- Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes.
- Now pour the tea into the cups through a strainer.
If you do everything right, you’ll enjoy a tantalizing elixir that will make your day memorable. Darjeeling is interesting because it tastes more like wine than other types of tea. Even if your better half isn’t a tea connoisseur, they will notice the difference. There’s so much more to Darjeeling that’s worth sipping.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to explore this versatile drink as you cozy up together for a hot meal. But if you’ve got the time – and the right ingredients – on your hands, there are a variety of tea cocktails that you can try out. Make this day more memorable with surprising gift ideas with Golden Tips Tea.
