Chateau Rouge launches ‘The Lovers’ speciality tea gift box to get the passion brewing again this Valentines. It's incredible to believe that while 165 million cups of tea are drunk daily in the UK, women still get invited back to their date's apartment for coffee, and then choose to drink tea? Is 'coming back for coffee' antiquated and so 1990's, or is 'coffee' really code for something else, and is it really fashionable to be serving tea again?

There may be nothing more alluring and seductive than the process of preparing and enjoying a fine tea. Like a fine wine, a good tea can’t be rushed - I can think of nothing nicer than a special tea to finish off a wonderful evening

Chateau Rouge launches ‘The Lovers’ speciality tea gift box to get the passion brewing again this Valentines.

According to Seán Farrell, a tea enthusiast and avid traveller, it is becoming more fashionable to invite someone back to your apartment for tea. "I think speciality tea is back in fashion again. In many ways it's much more exotic to invite someone back to your place for a cup of tea. In Paris, where I lived for a few years it is perfectly normal to invite someone date back to your apartment for a tisane or herbal tea"

Seán Farrell, founder of Chateau Rouge speciality teas, created the his and hers 'The Lovers' gift box complete with the sensationally seductive Jasmine Downy Pearls green tea and Imperial Earl Grey black tea - to get the passion brewing again.

"I think the whole process of preparing loose leaf tea is a really nice experience, and in many ways as seductive as a wonderful glass of wine. It may take longer to prepare a pot of leaf tea but like wine that improves when it is allowed to breath; the extra effort is well worth it in the end", says Seán.

With an estimated 1,500 different types of tea in the world, there is no excuse not to turn your front room into a romantic boudoir and inviting your nearest and dearest onto the sofa for tea, not coffee, this Valentine's Day. The question may well not be if your date will drink tea, but rather, which tea will she likely want to drink?

Seán Farrell is the founder and owner of the recently launched London based speciality tea brand, Chateau Rouge. A self confessed foodie and traveller, he attributes his love of tea to the different countries he has visited for the last 15 years. Chateau Rouge Teas are sold online and through selected high end retailers like Harvey Nichols in London.
