One more tea post...

I encourage you to drink tea daily!

Here is a great list from a great site.

Check out the site, too.


January is National Hot Tea Month – January is also a time to make some changes for the better.  Use National Hot Tea Month to learn more about tea and enjoy tea more, each and every day!
  1. Try something new to you. Visit a tea room or shop to purchase a new loose leaf tea. In most cases, you should be able to purchase a small amount to try.
  2. Freshen up your inventory. Clean out the cupboards! Get rid of that old stale tea in the back of the cabinet.
  3. Try adding your own healthy flavorings to your tea in place of sweeteners. Try a slice of lemon, or simply lemon zest.
  4. For black tea, try adding spices such as cardamom or cinnamon.
  5. Explore teas from different regions of origin.
  6. Explore teas of different methods of processing: white, green, oolong, black. Learn what makes each different.
  7. Make tea a healthy part of your daily fluid intake. Skip the milk and sweeteners!
  8. Learn to enjoy the taste of tea with nothing added. A quality loose leaf tea should be so delightful that you would never think to add anything to it.
  9. Learn how to brew different types of tea using different temperature water/brew time. No more bitter tea if you treat each type correctly.
  10. Store your tea in a dark, airtight container. Do not refrigerate (unless it is something unusual and suggested by your supplier), the condensation will ruin the tea every time you open it.
  11. Use quality water for brewing.
  12. Try cooking with tea, adding tea to food and beverage recipes.
  13. Take time for tea every day. Enjoy tea with family and friends and business associates too!
Just to clarify... the link above is where this list came from... I did not write this list but am inspired by it to enjoy more tea in 2013.  :)

A few more great sites...
