January is National Hot Tea Month, and a time when eating and drinking healthy is on everyone’s mind.

It was first used as a medicinal beverage, and grew into a beverage of choice.

Tea is all-natural and free of calories and preservatives. It contains B, C, and E vitamins, and the minerals folic acid, magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, fluoride, and carotene.

The most important substances in loose tea are the caffeine, essential oils and polyphenols (found in flavonoids in tea).
