A little fact you might have not known: January is, in fact, National Hot Tea Month. I must say, I’ve traipsed around, completely oblivious to this national observance, but I’m making up for it now by posting about these dear leaves and drinking an afternoon cup.
Tea has a long history, with a recorded consumption dating back to 1000 BC in China. Besides its place in history, tea is known for its medicinal uses and its seer-like leaves left in the bottom of a cup, waiting to be read.
In honor of National Hot Tea Month, steep yourself a cup, curl up with a library book, and sip away!
