Uptown Tea Shop — January Is Hot Tea Month!

As we end the month of January, I hope you've been celebrating Hot Tea Month like we've been doing here at the shop.

We've been telling people it's as simple as grabbing your favorite mug and brewing your favorite tea.

Then sit back and enjoy your cuppa either by yourself or with friends.

Organic Teas

We've been savoring all the varieties and not playing favorites.

Every day, we pick a category and have been rotating through Black, Oolong, Green, White, Decaf, Rooibos, and Herbal Teas.

It's been great fun because we all have different teas we like.

Connoisseur Teas

Each day, someone picks the tea for that day and shares it with all the rest of us. It gets you out of your comfort zone and reminds you of the many flavors you can enjoy.

In fact, there are literally thousands of varieties of teas out there. I can't carry them all, but I'm proud to say I have over 160 different types of loose-leaf tea for you to sample.

Green Teas

Besides being the best-tasting beverage you can drink — in my humble opinion, of course — tea is also loaded with good things for you, like antioxidants, catechins, polyphenols, and flavonoids, I know, big, fancy words.

As additional benefits, tea can also relieve stress and has stroke-reducing and heart-healthy properties, to name a few.

Black Teas

I also thought I'd share a bit of fun tea trivia from the Tea Association of the U.S.A., Inc.

"Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water and can be found in almost 80% of all U.S. households. It is the only beverage commonly served hot or iced anytime, anywhere, for any occasion. On any given day, over 159 million Americans are drinking tea."

Herbal/Tisane Teas

"Annual Consumption: In 2021, Americans consumed almost 85 billion servings of tea or more than 3.9 billion gallons. About 84% of all tea consumed was black tea, and 15% was green tea. The small remaining amount was divided between oolong, white, and dark tea…"

Oolong Teas

"Daily Consumption: On any given day, more than one-half of the American population drinks tea. On a regional basis, the South and Northeast have the greatest concentration of tea drinkers."

White Teas

So, as we close out National Hot Tea Month, all of us at Uptown Tea Shop hope you're staying warm, enjoying lots of hot tea, and starting a year of good health with tea.
