January: National Hot Tea Month

January is National Hot Tea Month and most of us have already made resolutions of one sort or another. Those that are simple to incorporate into our lives are the ones we are most likely to keep past January. Make tea a part of your daily routine and lifestyle.

Research states that, tea is one way to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Maybe being healthier is one of your most important health resolutions for the New Year? Why not incorporate tea into your drink options and a little less of other types of drinks.

For those who are looking to shed a few holiday pounds. A study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that substances in tea may even promote weight loss by increasing the amount of energy spent by the body. The theory is that green tea, because of the catechin (pronounced "cat E kins") content, has thermogenic properties that promote fat oxidation, may work together with other chemicals to increase weight loss.

This antioxidant, nutrient-rich beverage has also been credited with protecting against and helping to lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol.

So do your happy dance and get your teapots steamed up for a cup your favorite Praise Tea. Tea lovers rejoice!

Wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with Tea and Good Health,
