For a tea lover, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for a special gift: tea with rose petals.

Teas are not only delicious to drink, they have no calories and are high in antioxidants.

The photos show a two teas from one of our favorite artisan tea blenders, Tay Tea.

They, and the other teas listed below, have something “extra” that makes them lovely Valentine gifts: different varieties of flower petals, including roses.

Depending on variety, the teas are available in:

  • Loose leaf tea
  • Tea bags
  • Gift tins and jars
  • Paper packets
  •  
     
    BLACK, GREEN & HERBAL TEAS WITH FLOWERS

    Take a look at:

  • A Day In Provence, a floral and fruity rooibos herbal blend with lavender, rose petals, red and black currants and rose hips.
  • Azul, an herbal tea of butterfly pea flowers (that give it its blue color), lemon verbena and lemongrass.
  • Kyoto, a sencha green tea with cherry blossom and rose petals.
  • Marry Me Again, Ceylon black tea, violets and lavender with a sprinkling of purple cornflower petals.
  • Persian Rose, black Ceylon tea scented with bergamot and blended with rose petals, organic rose buds, green cardamom and borage.
  • Twiggy, an organic aged oolong with chrysanthemum flowers.
  • Wedding Tea, a blend of white and black teas, enhanced with pink rose buds and petals, cornflowers, vanilla and lemon verbena.
  • Wild Woman, An organic high-grown Ceylon tea with wild blueberries, black currants, hibiscus, elderberries and corn flower petals.
  •  
    And that’s not all.

    Any tea lover will enjoy perusing the site and relishing the many varieties created by Nini Ordoubadi, a third-generation tea blender.

    We’ve had perhaps a dozen of Tay Teas’ blends.

    All are delicious, and there are black, green and herbal teas aplenty; plus teaware and gift boxes.

    Here’s our review of Tay Tea.
