  3. Serve the Love at First Sip Collection: A Valentine’s party isn’t complete without these six delectable teas. From Cinnamon Hearts Pu’erh to Maraschino Cherry, this limited time collection is the perfect sample to this themed party.
  4. Offer tea and chocolate pairings: Who says you have to choose between tea and chocolate? Let’s make it both; we think these two are meant to be together! Party goers can enjoy the pairing of Pu’erh and dark chocolate, Oolong and milk chocolate, Earl Grey de la Crème and fruit filled chocolate, or Green tea with white chocolate. These are just a few ideas, so get creative! The pairings can really bring out the flavors of each.
  5. Serve heart-shaped treats: Tonia’s Perfect Scone Mix makes a traditional treat. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to turn them into a lovely snack. Add fruit into the mix or use Strawberry Rhubarb Jam for fresh flavor.
