Tea is one of the most drunk beverages in the world, somewhere behind coffee and, of course, water, and so naturally has a place of prominence in many cultures, especially those of China, England, and Japan.
The first records of tea being drunk for pleasure as well as a part of social ritual were in China, one of the few countries to which the tea plant is native. Records as far back as the 8th century describe the widespread drinking of tea among both the upper- and lower-classes. Later, tea was exported from China to Japan where it became just as popular a beverage as well as a cultural fixture, leading to the development of the complex and serene Japanese tea ritual. Tea was introduced to England in the 17th century where it was so well-loved that the British had to set up their own plantations to help cope with their demand.
There's little wonder as to the popularity of tea across such a broad range of cultures. Tea is first of all an aromatic and pleasant drink with a wide range of flavours and is considered by many to be a much healthier alternative to coffee, containing anti-oxidants as well as bound caffeine.
Tea is sold either in cafés or coffee shops, or even what are called "tea rooms," as an alternative to coffee, or you can buy all you need to make and enjoy tea in your own home from any local tea shop or online tea shop. A good tea shop will offer a wide selections of tea leaves, tea bags, tea steepers, tea cups, tea pots; in short, everything a tea afficianado could ever need. So go shopping now at any tea shop pleases you and bring a little culture and relaxation into your mornings and days.
