Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water. It is renowned for its health benefits and has become an intrinsic part of many cultures all around the world. It is no wonder then that people are constantly searching for the best tea in the world and are interested in the art and craft of tea. Tea is part of our history and culture.
The story of how tea was taken from the fields of China to be cultivated in India is fascinating. For All the Tea in China is a wonderful book that tells this remarkable story in a very engaging way. Reading this book was a major inspiration for me deciding to create the World Tea Directory. Now tea is grown in India and Sri Lanka (Ceylon), in Iran (Persia) and Kenya, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, Turkey, Argentina, and even in the UK and the USA as well as a host of other countries all around the world.
Tea was, and remains, an important part of world trade. The story of how it spread along the trade routes of the world to be enjoyed by so many people is another important part of its historical importance.
There are many brands of tea and even more types of tea. From green tea, Oolong tea, red or black tea to white tea. People use other plants to create herbal teas. People serve it in many different ways using tea bags, adding tapioca to create bubble teas and using tea infusers, tea pots and tea strainers to brew loose leaf teas.
In short the world of tea goes beyond just its fabulous, refreshing taste and its wonderful health benefits. It is a massively important part of the economies, and therefore the welfare, of millions of people and countries around the world.
