On the Second Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me
two turtle doves, of course!
Symbol of Love, but perhaps a bit predictable, as suggested by this:
Known as a symbol of love because of its tender mating song and faithfulness, the turtle dove is also a creature of habit: its daily feeding routine runs like clockwork.
I guess faithfulness and predictability may go hand in hand, but still, an unexpected romantic tea by candlelight definitely has its charm.
And what better tea to serve than one with a name evoking romance and the warm, sunny happiness of love: Summer Romance.
This luscious fruit tea is a mixture of apple, rose hips, hibiscus blossoms, elderberries, strawberry, raspberry, strawberry leaves, and vanilla, which means it is naturally caffeine free.
The tea brews into an intense deep red cup brimming with fruit flavors, a balance of sweet and tangy.
Share this loving blend of sweet fruit with a special friend, no matter what the season!
And perhaps spare a thought for those gentle Turtle Doves.
Illustrated here as a pair, perhaps referring to their habit of mating for life, they are a picture of fidelity and domesticity. It’s up to the male to decide where to build the nest, but both male and female build it. They also share the responsibilities of feeding their babies.
The happily matched doves remind us of tenderness, love, faithfulness—everyday joys that we wish for our true love and for all those we love.
Summer Romance is available at TeaHaus.
