5 Reasons Why Tea Dates are the Best Dates

Not everyone was made for the dance floor and the high densities of people and socializing that is part of every party. This is especially true if you want to be able to hear what your date has to say. While a party has its own charm, the party night just doesn’t hold a candle to a tea date and here’s why.

  1. Clear, meaningful conversation

    Parties are incredibly distracting. You have to mind your feet and make sure not to step on anyone’s shoes while also paying attention to whoever you’re with. At a tea date, all you have to do is sit down and sip your tea without making a slurping noise. You can talk about things small and large without worrying too much about what is going on around you.  This is especially important if you are going on a first date.

  2. Set the tone

    Not only is it quieter, you can also take your pick from the wide range of ambiences available for tea. Most bars and clubs have a similar atmosphere, no matter how much they try to differentiate themselves. With a tea date, you can visit a bright cafe by the shore or a tea lounge on a rooftop and share some food together.

  3. Takes the pressure off

    Another advantage you have when you meet someone for tea is that there are usually a lot more props for conversation starters than you would normally find at a club. You can talk about the decorations, the items on the menu and the artwork on display, making it easier for you to carry things forward.

  4. More dates

    If you’ve got a job, then party nights aren’t possible on most days. If you want to see your date and make sure you’re going to be able to wake up on time, a tea date is probably a way better choice for you. Also, morning tea dates can be a great idea if you’re both fond of an early start. Conversation, tea and breakfast? Sounds like a formula for a strong connection.

  5. Perfect for introverts

    If you don’t know your date that well, it might be a bad idea to take them out to a club in the first place. Take them out to a cafe and try to understand their personality a bit first. If they do have even a slightly introverted side to them, then they will be very grateful. A cup of tea is much less demanding and brings a sense of comfort that makes for a nice, happy date.
