January. My friends in Florida love the cooler January temps during the day but not the ‘chill’ of nighttime temps or rainy days. Here in Northern New York a temp of 40* with sunshine gets us so excited we break out the grills for BBQ! But let’s face it no matter what part of the US you live in the days are much colder than you’d prefer!
BUT WAIT… once again TEA COMES TO OUR RESCUE!
With it’s warmth and endless variety TEA is truly the cuppa that will revive you!
While Americans drink more tea iced than hot– sipping a hot cup of tea on a cold winter day has many benefits. With winter’s dry air and cold/flu season, a hot cup(s) of tea hydrates, soothes, and heals your body due to it’s natural anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. So wonderful are these benefits you might want to drink a cup of tea no less than 3 times a day- black tea in the morning, a green tea for your afternoon pick-me-up and a soothing tisane like Harmony in the evening.
Health benefits aside- we really reach for a hot cup of tea in winter because it’s like ‘a hug in a cup’! A hot cup of tea in your hands melts away the cold, smells delicious, and brings out all the happy and cozy ‘feels’! Add a your favorite book, a warm blanket and some twinkle or candle light for a complete dose of Winter Time Hygge!
With all this magic in a cup of tea is it any wonder that January is National Hot Tea Month!
