National Hot Tea Month
January - is National Hot Tea Month - a perfect time to enjoy the warmth and satisfaction of a perfectly brewed pot of tea. As the weather gets colder and the days turn quickly into nights, take time to prepare some loose leaf tea, and enjoy the flavorful brew. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season behind us, it is quite enjoyable to sit with a pot of tea and savor the moment. Whether it's simply quiet time for yourself, or surrounded by family as you relax and enjoy a good book or pleasant movie, take time for tea during National Hot Tea Month. There are so many wonderful varieties of tea to sample, that you shouldn't limit yourself to the same old flavor. Although I personally enjoy a hearty plain black such as an Assam, we find that the flavored teas are quite popular in the tea room. Blue Lady, our most popular blend, is a black tea base that has been blended with coconut, strawberry and kiwi flavors. Our second most popular flavored tea is French Caramel Creme Brulee - the only way to describe it is 'ooh la la', it's just that good! In the later evening hours, I enjoy a cup of Rosemary's Relaxing Tea, an herbal tisane that simply helps me to relax. So, whether you are enjoying a true tea from the Camellia sinensis plant, flavored or not, or a tisane; an infusion made from herbs and therefor naturally caffeine free, just be certain to celebrate National Hot Tea Month.
