Janurary National Hot Tea Month

Did you know that January is 
National Hot Tea Month!

I looked up National Hot Tea Month on the 
internet and it said " Tea is the second most 
popular beverage in the world next to water."
Yes, in the WORLD!
You can read about all the good that tea does
for you HERE

The article said that Tea flavonoids may help increase metabolism and fat oxidation. Now
that may help us with our New Years Resolution to lose weight.

Other than strengthening our metabolism and fat oxidation it helps maintain hydration and so much more.
I have always enjoyed a cup of hot tea, now I know it does so much more for me than warm me up inside on a cold winter's day.

Maybe it is Time to have a cup!

Sylvia, I like the pictures of you enjoying a cup of tea with one of your blessings. :):) I bought a big box of tea bags this fall and split it with two of my daughters and myself. I still have a few bags left, now I may go more. Blessings to you, stay warm and safe. xoxo, Susie

So I'm heading to the kitchen now to make a cup of matcha tea... for weight loss and relaxation! Such a pretty foto of you! Thank you so much for sharing! Hope you have a great weekend... stay warm!

Cathy said...

I wish I liked tea, but I never have. Maybe I need to try some different flavors. Love the pictures of your tea very cute!

Have a great weekend!

Sandi said...

That sounds good. I think I'll have a cup!

Tea was the highlight of Christmas gifts I gave this past year to the (hopeful) daughters in law. One girl prefers loose leaf tea, the other prefers single serving bags. As a tea lover myself, I had fun shopping for just the right flavors, and cups to enjoy them!

Mary Hutchins said...

Thank you Sylvia, I think I will have a Tea-lightful day and enjoy a cup of hot tea. I just happen to have some that a dear friend sent to me. Hope you're staying warm and cozy, we have a high of 70 forecast for Sunday. WoW, crazy weather.

I am actually having a cup of tea right now while I read your post! Yes, I agree with all of the above you said about it. A cup of hot tea not only warms me up, but it cheers me up and calms me down. It just helps me to relax and contemplate what God is saying to me each day. And it is such a delightful way to visit with friends and "sisters in the Lord". Thank you for this interesting and "TEAlightful" post today! You know I'm a big fan!!

Happy New Year! I look forward to visiting more in the new year.
Great tea post-I think every month is hot tea month for me. :)
I like your photos from tea time. Going out to afternoon tea or hosting at my house is such a meaningful experience. Love your Royal Albert January teacup. I would love to collect all twelve of them.

I didn't know that January was tea month. I think that's great. I love tea but stopped drinking a lot of it due to it having the capacity to keep me awake more than coffee does. But I still love my cuppa. These days I drink a lot of rooibus tea from South Africa. Very good for you and also decaf. I enjoyed all your photos in this beautiful post.

Sylvia, I'm enjoying a mug of mint tea right now. I didn't know this was national tea month. Lol. God bless you!

Billie Jo said...

I had no idea!
I shared this with Madison, my daughter. She loves tea~
I need to replace one of my coffees with tea.
I enjoy it....I just have to drink it more.
Thank you for sharing.
Have a cozy evening!

Oh my, I didn't know January was National Hot Tea Month. I'm sipping on my orange spice tea right now while visiting my favorite blogs. You look darling in your hat and gloves, Sylvia. Enjoy this month of tea.


Lisa said...

I have never been a fan of hot tea but I wish I liked it. I can see where tea would be relaxing though.
Im a big fan of coffee. I love my coffee every morning. My tea has to be cold and sweet.

Fun photos at the end :) I am just having a hot cup of tea before heading off to bed. I like to start my day with two cups of tea at breakfast and again in the evenings and coffee in between - usually.


Margie said...

I echo Nora's comment: every month is tea time for us tea lovers! January is my birth month so I'm loving your pretty RA January teacup.

God's Grace Overflows said...

Huh, now who would of thought?! January Tea! I think I can do that and enjoy all the benefits of having my tea!
Cute photos!!

Have a delightful January, Sylvia!
Hugs, Amy

I think we drank Sweet Iced Tea every day growing up in Georgia. Now I enjoy a cup of hot tea during this cold weather in Indiana. I like your photos!

Fun post, Sylvia. Reminds me I need to get my January teacup out of the bottom of the China cabinet.
