Today is National Hot Tea Day

The Tea Council of the U.S.A. has announced the celebration of National Hot Tea Day for January 12, 2016. Tea fans are asked to honor tea as a special beverage in their lives. The day comes in the middle of what has already been recognized as National Hot Tea Month.

Not to mention, hot tea sales in the U.S. have increased more than 17% over the last five years. Whether you prefer green, black, oolong or white tea, there is something for every palate, and National Hot Tea Day is something everyone can enjoy and participate in.”
