As a tea shop owner, Valentine’s Day should not go unnoticed. 

This day is more than just a cultural celebration. It’s an unmissable opportunity to increase sales and offer unique experiences by spreading love in tea shape.


Valentine's Day: Origins and the sale of tea as a gift

While some consider this date a creation of marketing, its origin dates back to the 3rd century AD in Rome. Valentine, a brave priest, defied Emperor Claudius II’s prohibitions by secretly marrying young lovers.

His act of love and rebellion led to his death sentence on 14 February 269 AD, turning him into “the saint of love”; that is why we celebrate this special day.

Today, millions express their love through gifts that go beyond the conventional. Flowers, chocolates, and jewelry are traditional, but tea has emerged as a classic choice in recent years.

Far from other gifts, tea is highly healthy, while offering an extraordinary sensory experience. By selling tea as a Valentine’s Day gift, you are offering care and attention to the health of your customers’ loved ones.

By giving tea as a gift, you are giving more than a beverage; you are offering care and attention to the health of your loved ones.
