hot stuff!As many of my readers know, January is not only special because it marks a fresh start to a new year, but it also celebrates our favorite beverage in its most traditional form.

That’s right, January is National Hot Tea Month!

And while I can’t proclaim with any kind of conviction that Shen Nung, the legendary Father of Tea, first sipped his tea in this wintry month, the legend does clearly state that the first cup was indeed hot.

With a new year just beginning and so many choices out there for hot teas, I encourage all to step out of their tea-comfort zone and try something new…you’ll never know what amazing and exciting discoveries may be made!
