Winter has finally arrived in NYC, and tea is going to be super easy to add to your daily food and drink intake. You have to stay warm so, enjoy your cup of joe in the am, then switch to any of the following teas for the rest of the day. Skip the afternoon coffee, unless you actually want wrinkles.
