Just as golf balls are intended to go into a hole, so too, tea when consumed is intended to go through one's face-hole.

They both come around in April? Others have already made the "tea" and "tee" connection...

Wow, I have to say, you have all given verrrrry good, insightful, imaginative, brisk answers that could easily be the correct answer as they were quite to the point in the straight and narrow ... and rippled my dimpled face. But in today's warming climate ... sadly they were cold. And not the answer to the riddle. And unfortunately I do not have enough bonus tees ... er teas to give out 12 bonus tea samples.

There is a clue here somewhere ... and a bunch of misdirections in this round.
