Coming to Tea'sTea is probably one of the most consumed non-alcoholic beverages in the world. And with its ever-gaining popularity, introduction of many blends is only a small start. The history of tea dates back thousands of years to China where it all began. It is believed that the Chinese were the first to use tea as a medicinal plant. But it did not start with boiling or brewing the leaves, instead by chewing the leaves like most Asian cultures where beetle leaf chewing is common.
Although the Chinese did realize its medicinal benefits, it was only later that processing of the green leaves started to produce tea, the beverage we know today. With early trade done by exchange of products and commodities, tea slowly found its way around the world. From Asia, the Middle East and Europe through the silk route to now the North and South America.
Tea is gaining popularity in the Americas too because until recently they were more of a coffee drinking nation. Although coffee still captures over half of the American market, tea is also enjoyed by much of the population.
It’s an assortment of two or more herbs blended to make a herbal drink. The ingredients of the blend promote health benefits that can be accompanied by a healthy diet plan. A herbal tea blend can include tea (white, green or oolong) or just the herbs or edible flowers. More on herbal flower teas in upcoming blogs.
