January: A Month of Tea and Books

Tuesday, January 5, 2010 |
So, did you know that January is both National Hobby Month and the month of Hot Tea? These two categories happen to fall under my favorite things. I love reading with a mug of tea nearby. As a matter of fact, my favorite tea is Bigelow's Early Grey. Delicious.

And, besides reading and blogging, I really enjoy playing the piano (I'm an amateur, but it's fun all the same,) and I'm a tap dancer. I also like to bake, and I would even consider my obsession with Gilmore Girls a hobby. ;)

So, my questions for you this week are:

1)Do you enjoy tea? While reading?
2)What other hobbies do you have besides reading/blogging?

Have a wonderful day!
<3 Cate

What a fun post...I love drinking hot tea...my favorite is Joy made by Tazo......
hmmm besides reading....I love collecting old vintage jewelry, not that I wear all of it, but finding an old piece worn 100 years ago is fun!

I enjoy tea, though I can't tolerate the caffeine. So it's herbal tea for me. Not while I'm reading, though. Since I read while lying down in bed, that would be a bit awkward.

Aside from reading & blogging, I enjoy playing The Sims 2. I also love genealogy.

1. I think I've drank about 3 cups of tea in my whole life. :-) When I really like a book, I just curl up on my bed without any distractions.

2. I play piano as well! I'm also on the varsity tennis team and the math team.

Hello! I just came across your blog and have been reading it for a few days.

I felt compelled to comment because I LOVE drinking tea during reading - and just in general. I'm kind of addicted to it in the wintertime. My favorite right now is Lipton mandarin oragne green tea.

I used to play the piano too (for 13 years actually) but not so much anymore.

Now my hobbies are writing, scrapbooking, traveling, and reading (of course).

1. I normally not thrink tea while I'm reading. Somethimes hot chocolate or just a cool drink.
2. Besides reading I love to go shop, hunt for more books, traveling, going to the theatre and also the cinema!

You play the piano? I'm so jealous! I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano!

I used to enjoy tea, a long time ago. I made it all of the time. Now I don't like it so much. Or coffee. Hot chocolate is good though. I don't necessarily drink tea/coffee/hot chocolate while I'm reading, but once in a while I do. :)

Well, besides reading, I like to ride horses (not sure if this counts as a hobby :P), do a random craft that I'm into at the moment and sometimes write.

Wow, I'm so surprised at the number of responses! Thanks for sharing with me, everyone! Maybe I'll do this every month, just to get to know the readers. :)

Earl grey or green tea with honey is preferable. I'm a Bigelow fan also. Thank you for the Hot Tea month alert, now I have all the more reason to drink it!

I can't really stand drinking tea unless I pour a bunch of sugar in it, which kind of defeats the purpose. Lately, I've been drinking lots and lots.

I play the piano too! It's a lot of fun, is it not?

I do like to have tea while I'm reading. I'm disabled so reading and book blogging are my only hobbies. There's a wonderful meme I sometimes do that might interest you. Thursday Tea combines a few thoughts about the tea you're are drinking and the book you're currently reading:
