2. Sample Exotic Teas
Can’t sneak away for an exotic vacation in January or February? You can still sip your way to exotic locations by sampling popular teas from around the globe.
Open your senses to the bold, earthy flavors of Matcha or Sencha—Japanese green teas known for their bold flavors and antioxidant benefits. Or taste a spicy yet soothing brew from India, like Darjeeling tea or Masala Chai.
3. Brew for Health
For the health conscious, mention of green brews like Gyokuro, Matcha, and Sencha may have piqued your interest due to their reputed antioxidant and vitamin C prowess.
If you like lattes, look no further than rooibos tea, a South African blend that’s also rich in antioxidants yet naturally sweet because it’s often blended with spices like vanilla, as well as caramel, and chocolate.
4. Winter Spice Teas
Part of drinking in season teas is focusing on spices and produce that’s bountiful in the month of January. Consider spicing up your brew by selecting winter-specific spices.
Warm, comforting, delicious pots can be brewed by infusion teas with ginger, cinnamon, cardamon, and vanilla spices. Don’t forget to wrap up in a cozy blanket first.
5. Winter Citrus Blends
Another way to sip in season is to infuse your tea pot with bold citrus flavors that are plentiful during the cold, winter months.
For instance, zesty citrus teas can be had in lemon-ginger, orange-spice, and mandarine with cinnamon. I’m cozy just thinking about it.
