Oolong tea steeping in a small Yixing teapot
January is National Hot Tea Month, and I have a challenge for you! My goal is for your to try a new style of tea this month. If you drink tea bags, invest in a nice loose leaf. If you only drink black tea, try an oolong, green or white. If you've had all of those, try a new style of brewing - in a gaiwan, for example. If you've never had bubble tea, now is the time! Or check out the 31 ways to explore tea offered by Lindsey in her About.com post.
Happy tea explorations! I hope you'll share your adventures, and let me know if you have any questions about types of tea, its preparation, etc. If I don't know the answer, I'll attempt to find someone who does. Cheers!
