January is Hot Tea Month

Time to celebrate Hot Tea Month. You may be thinking: Why January?

Well during the beginning of the year, you probably see plenty of people going crazy with gym memberships, diet pills, and making other weight-loss or heath-related resolutions.

Little do people know the potential benefits of adding tea to their daily diet. Or how simple and cheap it is.

Lose weight.

Several studies show that drinking green tea every day helps speed up your metabolism and provide energy for people to complete and recover from their workouts. Why spend hundreds of dollars on supplements? Purchase loose-leaf tea that will last you a few months and save money.

I highly recommend checking out teavana.com or republicoftea.com as places to order yourself a good amount of  loose-leaf tea. My preferences are something with a fruity or minty blend. The flavor can then be heightened when you add a bit of sugar-free sweetener. Yummy!

Fight the flu-bug.

Research has shown that tea drinkers have more ability to fight off viral infections like the cold or flu than non-tea drinkers can. I recommend black tea or oolong tea help strengthen your immune system because they are loaded with antioxidants.
