Say it With Tea This Galentine's Day

Will you be my Galentine?

St. Valentine’s day marks February’s place in our Holiday Calendars. It is the day to celebrate our partners, shower them with gifts of all kinds – chocolates, flowers, Marks and Spencer’s ‘Love Sausages’… should you wish to – and essentially, tell them really how much you love and appreciate them. It is a day to go above and beyond for that special person in your life that is always there for you; for every high and every low; with a cuppa and hug ready when things don’t go exactly as you planned.

Now, I don’t know about you, but there are a certain group of people in my life that put up with just as much from me as my partner does. These are my close group of friends. I love my girls beyond belief, and we have certainly been through some ups and downs together and their support has never faltered. I have always wanted a day where I can specifically celebrate them and tell them exactly how much I love and appreciate them. I have been known to buy my girls Valentine’s day cards, and I am pretty certain I still have the silk rose my friend Jenn gave me about 5 years ago, but it’s just not the same – is it?

**Enter onto the scene Galentine’s Day**

Wait a minute, you’re telling me there is a specific day for me to celebrate my girls? This is perfect!

Starting as a brainchild of the writers of Parks and Recreation, the episode 'Galentine’s Day' aired in 2010, and shows Leslie throwing her annual Galentine’s Day party to celebrate her girl friends. This idea has transcended the sitcom world and is now practised in the United States and the United Kingdom on the 13th of February every year. How has this been passing me by for the last 11 years?!

So, to celebrate her girls Leslie throws a brunch party - great idea. But do you know what I think would be a quintessentially British way to celebrate this holiday? Afternoon Tea!

But we face a huge challenge this Galentine’s Day, we can’t go out for Afternoon Tea with our girls! We have got to protect them and others and stay at home. This breaks my heart. But don’t worry, I got you. How about sending them luxury artisan teas from SaChasi? They meet all of our afternoon tea criteria: indulgent; inspired by baked goods; excellent tea… what could be better suited?

SaChasi has some incredible blends that perfectly fit that Galentine’s theme, let’s check them out together:

Red Velvet Cupcake

A luxurious black tea, made with a super nutritious combination of carob & cacao

“Straight from the patisserie! Crimson crumb sprinkles decorate a buttercream frosting, placed atop a rubied chocolate sponge. This iconic treat has been reborn as a nourishing Ceylon black tea. Share with the one you love, or simply enjoy as a special treat to yourself – absolutely guilt-free!”

Super Berry Brownies

A warming fruity green tea, infused with the mighty adaptogenic Schisandra berry

“Bite into a soft chocolate sponge with a fruit-filled gooey centre and succumb to a taste experience like never before. These famous fudgy squares have been recaptured as a refreshing green tea, bursting with wild berries and blended with decadent swirls of cacao.”

Raspberry Rose Friands

A marzipan-esque black tea, blended with skin-supporting rosehip powder

“Inspired by the French creation, these bitesize nutty cakes are filled with fresh raspberries, a delicate floral syrup and a scattering of flaked almonds. Take a break with this reimagined tiny treat and infuse yourself a daydream of Paris with every sip.”

Don’t those just sound amazing? So, all we need to do now is get our orders in and, on the 13th of February, jump on video chat with our besties. You could maybe have a catch-up, maybe play a game, maybe even just put on a film and relax together.

Take some time for you and your girls this Galentine’s Day, because do you know what? It’s not all about Valentine’s Day this February, and we deserve it.
