Valentine's Tea Gift Ideas? Input Is Appreciated.

With Valentine’s day coming up, I really want to give my girlfriend a loose-leaf tea gift of some kind. I’ve seen Adagio’s “Love Petals” gift set, but to be honest I’m not too impressed. I’ve also considered making a custom blend on Adagio, but when I tried to do that I found that the choices of teas were very limited and tended to be lower-end teas in their inventory. Does anybody know of any good, high quality Valentine’s gift sets out there? Or even just a place where you can make a custom, personalized set or blend? Thanks.

I’ve never had the tea, I think it has chocolate and rosebuds in it

You could always get something cheaper that’s Valentine’s themed (make a custom blend like you mentioned) but also get her something higher quality.

OR have fun and make your own valentine’s label and stick it on whatever you get- just print it on a laser printer.

ORR buy a few different tea’s you know are decent quality, a container, and blend yourself or make your own personalized set.

ORRR Ovation teas offers custom blending with quite a few options, and I think people have been generally pleased about the quality of their blends. http://www.ovationteas.com/

If my husband were getting me a tea-themed Valentine gift, this is what I’d want: a tin of Tea from Mariage Freres (maybe the “Love” tea?) and a box of tea-infused chocolates. You can find both here:

I’ve ordered from this company before; it is reputable.

For valentines, I just bought myself the gift box from Davidstea— the sweet indulgence sampler http://www.davidstea.com/tea-kits-and-gifts/tea-samplers/sweet-indulgence (because I’ve been married 17 years…)

That looks great! It’s reasonably priced, as well.
