Every January 12th is National Hot Tea Day.
Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the United States, behind only coffee. A cold January day (and night) is a great time to enjoy a steaming hot cup of tea. To most of us, tea is a delicious and relaxing drink. Drinking tea is healthy for you. With these things in mind, it is only fitting that today is National Hot Tea Day.
Tea has been consumed for almost 5,000 years. It's origin dates back to ancient China. The year was 2,737 B.C., during the Tang Dynasty. According to legend, some tea leaves fell into a pot of water that was being boiled for Chinese emperor Shen-Nung. He drank the brew, finding it delicious and relaxing. Legend also says that he only drank tea after this day. Tea became popular in Chinese and Asian culture and cuisine. But, it wasn't until the 1600s A.D., that tea was brought to Europe and became popular.
Colonists to the Americas, brought tea with them. By the mid 1770s, Britain was taxing all sorts of imports to America. The British "Tea Act" of May 10, 1773 proved the boiling point. American colonists strongly objected to the taxes. It led to the biggest tea party ever held. On December 16, 1773, the colonists boarded a ship loaded with tea being imported by the British East Indies Company. Yelling "No taxation without representation", they dumped the entire shipment into the Boston harbor.
Let's use today, to begin consuming healthy tea, or increasing consumption, if you already drink it. Tea is good for your health. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It settles the nervous system, helping you to relax. It is very soothing. Perhaps that's why over 85% of Millennials drink tea. Tea has flavonoids and antioxidants. It is low in caffeine, has no sodium, fat or sugar. And, tea has zero calories. It's medicinal value is supported in many studies. It contributes to good health in many ways, including lowering the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer and diabetes. If this isn't good reasons to celebrate National Hot Tea Day, I don't know what is.
