Did you know that January is National Hot Tea Month? I would like to take this time to properly thank the mastermind who created such a noble month. According to the weather reports, it’s currently a chilly 27 degrees Fahrenheit in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Add in the wind chill, and it feels like it’s only 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Now I’ve lived here my entire life, but I’d still say that that’s pretty cold! In honor of this magnificent month-long holiday, let’s check out the wonders of hot tea while we attempt to thaw out with a steaming glass of this cure-all beverage, tea.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, legend holds that the second emperor of China, Shen Nung, discovered the beverage we have come to know and love as tea. It’s said that wild tea leaves blew into his cup of hot water, making a refreshing hot beverage that eventually spread in popularity around the globe. The year was 2737 B.C. From then, tea has spiraled in popularity to the point of becoming the second most consumed beverage on the planet; second only to water. In fact, the American Health Foundation even recommends that we drink 5-6 cups of tea per day for its astounding health benefits!
There are four main types of tea: green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea. All tea begins from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. It’s all about the processing that determines the tea’s unique color, taste, and scent. Here at WEBstaurantStore.com, we have done all the work for you and offer a wide variety of ready-to-brew tea options for you to choose from.
