January is National Hot Tea Month!  Take the opportunity to enjoy fresh, hot tea every day in January, even if you are busy away from home.  Here are some tips to help make it happen!

Ten Ways to Enjoy Tea When Away from Home

1. take a thermos of hot water and tea bags with you in a tote

2. brew your favorite hot tea, then chill and place in a water bottle

3. keep a portable hot pot that plugs into a cigarette lighter and brew tea in your car

4. tuck a tea bag in your pocket and make tea at the convenience store by using their hot water dispense and hot beverage cups

5. stop at Starbucks or your favorite coffee shop and ask them to brew you a cup of black tea

6. learn about courtesy cups of tea available at places you visit (tire store; beauty shop; hardware store)

7. keep a hot pot by your desk at work and brew up a cup at a time

8. make a local tea room a part of your weekly routine; you can skip the food and go right for the hot cup of tea
