Did You Know These Cool Facts About Tea?

January 21, 2016 1:32 pm

There are few things more relaxing than kicking back after a long day with a hot mug of tea, but how much do you really know about the brew that you’re sipping? From its numerous health benefits to its rich, global history, there’s a whole lot to learn about this fascinating beverage!

  • Tea bags were originally designed in the early 1800s. They were created to hold samples of tea brought to America from India. Today, tea bags are much more commonly used than loose-leaf varieties.
  • Darjeeling tea is the world’s rarest tea. It gets its name because it's grown in the Indian region of Darjeeling. While many types of teas are labeled Darjeeling, only 1/4 are actually from the region!
  • While tea styles like black, green, white, and oolong taste very distinct, they all come from the same Camellia sinensis plant. It's the way the leaves are harvested and treated that determines their color and variety.
  • Herbal teas are not really teas at all. Rather, they're infused fruits, flowers, plants, and herbs.
  • China is the world’s largest tea producer. The country supplies 29% of the tea in the world. India comes in a close second.
  • The Chinese are not the world’s largest tea consumers. That title belongs to the United Arab Emirates!
