January marks the start of the new year and food-centered events, including National Oat Month and National Hot Tea Month. What better way to kick the winter blues than with a cup of piping hot tea this month?
Tea and honey are the perfect combinations 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.
