Tea, beverage produced by steeping in freshly boiled water the young leaves and leaf buds of the tea plant.
From green tea to hibiscus, from white tea to chamomile, teas are chock full of flavonoids and other healthy goodies.
Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub (bush) native to East Asia. After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world.
There are many different types of tea; some, like Darjeeling and Chinese greens, have a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavour, while others have vastly different profiles that include sweet, nutty, floral or grassy notes. Tea has a stimulating effect on humans primarily due to its caffeine content.
