Winter in Cleveland: Hot Tea Essentials

It takes a particular person to survive winter in Cleveland. Gritty is how we are described, and I take that as a compliment. However tough the outside world may think we are, there are a few tools that are necessary to stay remotely warm and for that matter, sane, during these bitter grey days.

Many businesswomen can be seen downtown bent into the wind wearing a full-blown arctic style parka. We have no shame; this isn’t about looks people, this is about survival. Our tall boots emerge in October along with a full array of scarves. Men in a total face mask type ski cap don’t scare us; they aren’t robbing a bank, but just trying to prevent frostbite.

All of that apparel is great for confronting old man winter but, I have a secret weapon: hot tea. Hot tea as a winter drink doesn’t exactly fit the tough as nails image I painted above, but I am telling you it is the only thing that warms me from the inside out. I drink several cups throughout the day and the cozy mug in my hands alone works warming wonders. As soon as the hot water for tea gets poured into the mug, you begin to feel relief from the cold.

The key to winter drinks is to have the proper tea brewing supplies that allow for quick, easy (and stylish) tea making. I am a fan of loose-leaf tea or homemade varieties so that I can control the strength and ingredients. There are a variety of options for preparing loose leaf tea that will leave you with a single cup, a mug on the go, or an entire pot. All of the alternatives require instant hot water of course which, is most easily obtained from a water cooler with a hot spigot. Having a convenient way to get instant hot water for tea can make all of the difference for professionals on the go.
