Tea is a soothing, comforting, and delicious beverage. You can drink it hot or cold, day or night, and there are thousands of varieties. Not sure how it could ever be proven, but some say that after water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. In some areas of the world, drinking tea is an art form, where calculated steps are performed in a specific order to produce the “perfect cup”.
