I LOVE TEA.
& lately, for some reason…I’VE BEEN A REAL TEA DRINKER.
My champagne consumption has decreased lately ( needed a little break! ) so I’ve been loading up on the TEA ( basically the holidays have ended & alcohol hasn’t really been around too much ).
Anyway, I’m very, VERY specific about which teas I drink. So when I discovered Celestial Seasonings Strawberry Champagne tea, I nearly fainted.
Well the reasons are endless: Valentine’s Day is next week…so UH DUH, the perfect tea for V-Day, right?! And it’s champagne (!!!) tea without the guilt. LOVE.
Oh, & it’s delicious iced OR hot. YUMMM.
Seriously though, this Strawberry Champagne black tea is kinda like a full dessert without the cals.
But let’s get real here: you can’t give me Strawberry Champagne tea & expect me to never actually add the champagne. Since I needed to ‘test’ recipes for Valentine’s Day, I made this quick, easy sweet tea recipe.
♡ The Skinny Confidential’s Pink Sweet Tea ♡
1 strawberry/champagne tea bag
1 cup champagne
1/2 cup strawberries, muddled
Directions: grab a glass & add ice and champagne. Add 1-2 tea bags to champagne. Let sit for five minutes. Muddle strawberries with lemon juice. Add to champagne ‘tea’. Remove tea bag. Garnish with lemon. Cheers!
By the way, if you’re looking for a Valentine’s tea, these teas also come in Red Velvet Rooibos ( YUMMM!! ) & Chocolate Carmel Herbal Tea ( << way to a man’s heart right here ) so add a little Bailey’s to either & thank me later. Plus, they come in super cute, festive containers that are adorable to use all year round ( or for birthdays/holidays/parties, not just V-Day ).
You can find these teas at your local Target ( I LOVVVVE Target, like really it’s the best store EVER ) but hurry – because they’re only available for a limited time!
What’s your favorite, flirty way to spice up V-Day?! Tell, tell.
Cheers! – Lauryn, xx
