January is again National Hot Tea so I will of course be drinking lots of hot tea this month.
But, then again that is a normal month 🙂
I especially enjoy drinking hot tea during the colder months. Especially if it is a good quality tea like this oolong tea from Taiwan. See: Taiwan Tea
Recently most of my hot teas are full leaf teas. Some have been gifts from friends or colleagues and others have been sought out while traveling.The purchase of a special tee cup in Germany also started a collection of tea accessories like infusers and storage containers.
I also have some tea items that belonged to some of my ancestors, but they will be subjects of future posts.
I also had to get A New Tea Kettle as some teas require different temperatures for the water.
Many of the teas that I have bring back memories as I drink them.
- Where did I buy the tea?
- Who gave me the tea?
- Who did I buy the same tea for?
- Visits to the country where the tea is from.
- Memories triggered by the taste or aroma of the tea.
So, put on the kettle and enjoy some nice hot tea this month.
