On drinking tea & journaling


So, now that universal letter writing week has ended, it’s time to find something new to celebrate. Why not “national hot tea month“?

Growing up I remember hot tea as a special treat. I’d have a cup with my mother or one of my grandmothers and we’d talk about who knows what. Probably my favorite color, or snow, or school, or toys. I can only imagine the conversations that 10-year-old me could hold.

In those days, I took my tea just like I took my conversation—light and sweet. Today however, I’m open to talking about almost anything and I’m stepping up my tea game too. I now take my tea almost as unfiltered as I take my conversation. And I’ll drink the black, the green, the white… whatever you throw my way.

For national hot tea month, I’ve cracked open a new journal (a gift) and at the same time extended the holidays with Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea

For starters, those polar bears with the candy canes. Super cute. And while it’s no longer “the holidays,” this peppermint tea still hits the spot for a cold January day.


My go-to hot tea is usually black, strong and unsweetened. But, as I whip through the pages of this journal (and three other journals I’ve recently received as gifts) I’m open to sipping new brews. Let me know your favorite in the comments so we can celebrate for the second half of national hot tea month.

I was not paid to write this post, however, Influenster did send this Celestial Seasonings Tea to me to taste test for free. Join Influenster now if you’d like to share your opinions (on free product samples) too.
