National Hot Tea Month

January marks the start of a lot of events-the new year, making and breaking resolutions and several food centered events, including National Oat Month and National Hot Tea month. What better way to kick the winter blues to the curb than with a cup of piping hot tea this month!

Tea and honey are the perfect combination for staying warm this winter. Herbal teas can bring you relief from sleepless nights, stuffy noses, and upset stomachs. The little jolt of caffeine from black tea wakes you up, while green teas provide antioxidants. Mixing a spoonful of honey into your tea sweetens the cup just enough, without adding a load of processed sugar. And, honey even provides trace minerals and enzymes that can be beneficial to your health.

Celebrate National Hot Tea Month with these Recipes

So, warm up a pot of water and get cozy, because hot and cold, we have some good brew(s) for you to try!

Dr. Feelgood Tea

If you’re feeling under the weather this season, try a cup of Dr. Feelgood Tea. This hot tea is made with ginger, lemon, and our Raw Linden Basswood honey, which imparts a mild herbal flavor to the brew. Clears up a stuffy head in no time.

Eastern Shore Hot Toddy

Hot Toddy with Honey

A good old fashioned Eastern Shore Hot Toddy can also help you to beat a cold. A toddy was traditionally used as a before-bedtime cocktail that would ease the stuffiness and sleeplessness that comes with illness. Sweetened with our Eastern Shore Honey, this toddy is warm, soothing, and relaxing.

Ginger Tea for National Hot Tea Month

Ginger tea in the making

This Ginger Tea can be kept hot in a thermos or crockpot all day long, or made iced in a pitcher. As it makes a large pitcher, you can either cut the recipe in half, or go all out to have tea to last you for a few days. Just refrigerate anything that you don’t use after a few hours, or keep it hot and sealed in a thermos. Ginger has some surprising health benefits, and is a spicy addition to any cup of hot tea.

Lavender Chamomile Tea

This Lavender Chamomile Tea is sure to quench your thirst.

This tea was originally made to be iced, but just omit the chilling period to have yourself a good warm cup of Lavender Chamomile Tea. Make a big batch of this, and you can keep it warm in a thermos all day long. Lavender is equally good for your insides as it is for your outsides, so try this Lavender Tonic as a refreshing toner.
