In honor of a man who wasn’t afraid to dream, Art of Tea is asking YOU what your dreams are. Martin Luther King Jr. taught us all that it is never the wrong time to stand up for what you believe in, and go after your dreams, no matter how big or daunting they may seem. Starting off in the new year, many of us made resolutions to make improvements in 2014. How are you sticking to your resolutions? If you feel like you may be dreaming big, but struggling with the execution, grab a cup of hot tea (the January tea of the month, 1896, is a delicious choice), a notebook and make a list of what you want to accomplish. Who knows where your brainstorm will take you. Here’s to making all of our dreams a reality in the new year!
Don’t forget to tag your #tea_moments on Instagram to show us how you are enjoying National Hot Tea Month!
To continue the celebration of National Hot Tea month, check out this delicious drink recipe and food pairing for you to enjoy while staying warm. All you need is a couple ingredients and an afternoon surrounded by family or friends. Show us how you try this recipe and pairing by using the hash tag #tea_moments.
We suggest pairing the 1896 Hot Cider with a delicious Gingerbread cookie. The spices from both the tea and the pastry compliment each other very well, and make for a delightful afternoon snack.

Before you run off and start your day, one final thought:
At the end of every year, many people find themselves reflecting on the good, bad and the happy things that have happened over the past 12 months. Often times, individuals will see areas that can be improved upon and set resolutions for themselves to try and be better in the new year. New Year’s resolutions can relate to one’s personal health, one’s personal life or their professional life. Resolutions can motivate us to make changes and better our lives in some way. However, sometimes we get so caught up in tangible and visible successes, we forget to just be. We forget to take time, to make moments and to appreciate what we have and where we are. We forget to be grateful for each and every day.
This year, Art of Tea challenges you to make “mindful resolutions.” To realize that a new year is a great time to set new goals in motion, but that every day is a gift and a chance to do something positive. Take time to slow down, appreciate the little things and have a cup of tea.
Happy New Year from all of us at Art of Tea.
