How to Host a Mother's Day Tea Party Thursday, May 01 2014

 

Whether you’re looking for a new way to gather the women in your family together for Mother’s Day, or just want to have Mom over for a little quality mother-daughter time, try hosting a tea party.


Many tea-drinkers know that savoring that first sip of their favorite beverage evokes feelings of well-being and comfort. It gives us a sense of belonging and a reason to slow down, savor the simple things in life and connect with ourselves and good company - in this case, your favorite females!


Tips for Your Mother’s Day Tea Party

1. Consider springtime decor to set a festive tone. Think floral centerpieces (with an aroma that won’t overpower the tea) and whimsical accessories.


2. Create a tea menu that appeals to your guests’ taste buds. Here are some suggestions that would perfectly suit a Mother’s Day party:


- Organic Love White Tea

- Organic Sweet Strawberry Oolong Tea

- Organic Orange Blossom Rooibos Tea

- Organic Vanilla Chocolate Delight Pu-erh Tea


3. Pull out your best teacups and teapots. Warmers will help keep your tea warm throughout the afternoon.


4. Use separate teapots to brew each tea and follow brewing instructions closely. Take a look at our basic tea brewing guide for suggested brewing instructions.


5. Don’t forget the finger foods and desserts. To best experience each tea’s flavor, wait until you’ve sampled each blend before fully indulging in your favorite cuppa and snack. For a sweet treat, we recommend either our Organic Raspberry Rooibos 60% Dark Chocolate, Organic Lavender Vanilla 60% Dark Chocolate or Organic Honeybush Caramel Milk Chocolate.


Most importantly, have fun! Savor your day, tea and good company.
