Valentine’s 20 minute Surprise Date

February 9, 2012

This Valentine’s Day date doesn’t cost a lot of money or even involve a lot of time, but it’s something you probably have never thought of or done, and trust me, this little gesture will go a long way.

The Surprise ‘Coffee Break Date’

This year Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday so why not take a little bit of time out of your day and surprise your loved one with an impromptu 20 minute coffee date.

And do I have the perfect treat for you to take them!

Over at Teaopia, located in CORE Shopping in Calgary and DT in most major cities, they have the most delicious tea based drink called the “Red Velvet Latte” ($6)

The drink is made from steeped Vanilla Rooibos Tea, a few shots of flavored syrup with a choice of steamed milk.

This drink is a little piece of heaven that will have you love birds on cloud 9.

This small gesture will be appreciated 10 fold by your lover and the rest of the office will be so envious!

Don’t let some other spouse or partner beat you to the punch on this one or you’ll never hear the end of it.

To make your impromptu tea date a little more special, take them a perfect card from Papyrus located steps away from Teaopia in Core Shopping.

Just make a comment below telling me what is your other favorite beverage you’d love for them to show up with and I’ll pick 2 winners.


  1. I wouldn’t cry if the BF showed up with a pina colada…and I work in theatre, so alcohol in the middle of the day isn’t frowned upon, it’s encouraged!

Looking forward to reading your comments!
