You guys! I have exciting news today! Extraordinarily Nice has partnered with Vine n Hop to bring you an amazing Valentine’s Day Tea Party Giveaway. I was lucky enough to try a couple of Pinky Up’s teas, provided by Vine n Hop, and I can’t wait for you to get to try them, too!
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I got together with one of my girlfriends to celebrate Galentine’s Day! You know all about Galentine’s Day, right? It’s Leslie Knope’s favorite holiday! Galentine’s Day is traditionally celebrated on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day, and it’s a celebration of your girlfriends – your true soul mates.
HOW WE CELEBRATED GALENTINE’S DAY
My girlfriend and I got together on Saturday to enjoy the afternoon together and indulge in a couple sweet treats. We had cake balls, macaroons, truffles and of course Pinky Up Tea. Our celebration was nothing more than a grown-up tea party – and it was perfect.
WHAT IS PINKY UP?
Pinky Up tea is a scrumptious and guilt-free indulgence. At our celebration, I served the tiramisu dessert tea and it was a huge hit! The flavor is rich and full, and there are literally zero calories. (I mean, we made up for it by eating cake balls, but whatever!)
Pinky Up was started in 2016 by a group of women who didn’t relate to the stuffy brands that were on the market at that time. It’s the ultimate #girlboss story and I’m excited to share it for Galentine’s Day.
LET’S TALK FLAVORS
There are currently 12 flavors of Pinky Up tea. I’ve tried nearly all of them, and we’re giving away my favorite four flavors for you to enjoy guilt-free. As an added bonus, three of the teas are flowering, or blooming, teas!
Have you ever seen a flowering tea? It’s stunning. Flowering tea bulbs are made by wrapping tea leaves around a dried flower center. As the bulb is steeped, it blooms into a beautiful flower. And what I think is even cooler about Pinky Up is that each flavor looks different!
I’m on my third tin of Crème Brulee, and I’m not ashamed! This was the first tea I tried, and I was immediately addicted. Do you know that moment around 2:00pm when you get a little sleepy and start craving sweets? This is the answer. With zero calories and up to 70 mg of caffeine, you get the taste of the crème brulee without the guilt.
You guys, even before you taste this tea, you are going to love this. I’m already on my second tin and sometimes, I just open it to enjoy the beautiful fragrance. It smells like a pina colada! (Surprise!) Personally, I enjoy this tea cold; I use one bloom to make an entire pot and chill. Let’s make #teaandchill happen.
I tried this tea in early January and fell in love immediately. It tastes like fall and winter. With hints of cinnamon and cloves, this tea is perfect for curling up on the couch with a fire blazing away. And! When it blooms, the flower is a beautiful red-orange.
This is the flavor I served for Galentine’s Day, and it was perfection. Pinky Up touts this as a dessert black tea, and it really does taste like dessert. Plus, because it’s loose tea, you can really appreciate how beautiful it is as you scoop! There are actual coffee beans and chocolate right in the mix!
At my Galentine’s Day celebration, I used the Pinky Up Ceramic Teapot in red and a couple mugs, one of which was the Ceramic Tea Mug & Infuser also in red, because I served loose tea. I love that the teapots and mugs come with an infuser because if I’m being honest, I didn’t own an infuser previously, and I was too intimidated to wander into a retail store and purchase one.
Extraordinarily Nice is partnering with Vine n Hop to bring you an awesome giveaway just in time for Valentine’s Day! One lucky reader will win a tin each of my four favorite flavors plus a gorgeous glass teapot and infuser by Pinky Up!
