Stop By & Get Your Steep On: It’s Hot Tea Month!

January is Hot Tea Month and we’ve got everything you need to craft the perfect cup. According to the Tea Association of the USA, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world (next to water) and can be found in almost 80% of all U.S. households. It is one of the only beverages commonly served hot or iced, anytime, anywhere, for any occasion.

The Co-op also carries a variety of boxed tea, including Yogi (organic), Tazo, Equal Exchange (organic & fair trade), Numi (organic), and Traditional Medicinals (organic & non-GMO).

Some people like to drink their tea plain, but many tea drinkers add honey, lemon, milk, or sugar (or a combination) to their cup. Why not pick up a jar of local honey from Hendrycks Apiaries or Ames Farm, which comes in several flavors from different pollen sources? The Co-op also offers a variety of milks and creamers, including non-dairy alternatives such as Almond Dream (almond milk) and Oatly (oat milk). In addition to regular sugars, we have sugar alternatives like stevia and monk fruit.

Happy sipping!
