The girls and I love tea parties. There’s something special about catching up over yummy tea sandwiches, pastries, and hot tea. It can be as fancy and girlie as we want, or it can also be comfortable and casual. As a Fox Home Ent Insider, we received a fun Valentine’s package to help us this time which included “The Best of Me” in Blu-ray, a Teavana Perfectea Maker, Teavana’s limited edition “First Blush Tea”, a tin of Rock Sugar, themed mason jar mugs, and candles.
Sample Tea Party Menu
We served a simple menu which included a variety of tea sandwiches (cucumber, chicken salad, egg salad), and heart shaped cookies. Note: Cucumber Sandwiches is one of the easiest sandwiches you can make. I only used 4 ingredients (cucumber, butter, sliced bread, and a dash of salt). The hardest part was cutting off the crust – so easy!
Serving Loose Leaf Tea
Teavana’s limited edition “First Blush Tea” is designed for Valentine’s Day, and it smells wonderful! Our brew featured the loose leaf tea which had a special blend of Jasmine green tea, floral orchid oolong, strawberries, rhubarb, and bubbly rosé. It not only tasted exotic and delicious, it smelled romantic!
Easy Brew Instructions:
- Measure 1.5 teaspoons of “First Blush Tea” per each 8 oz. serving.
- Steep in 175 degree water for 2 minutes.
Serve with rock sugar and enjoy! For more brewing instructions including how to brew iced tea, please visit Teavana’s website at www.teavana.com/tea-info/how-to-make-tea.
It’s hard for my girlfriends and I to get together all the time, but when we do, we always have fun. Thanks, Fox Home Ent Insiders and Teavana, for a fun night with friends! “The Best of Me” is now out on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD. Have tissues ready!
