Tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world and in India, it is even regarded as a culture. People can be found sipping a hot cuppa of the beverage almost anywhere and anytime. We celebrated International Tea Day on May 21. The United Nations General Assembly in the year 2019 marked May 21 as International Tea Day in a bid to promote the production and consumption of tea and create awareness about its significance in fighting poverty and hunger. From modest 'chai tapris' to the most sophisticated cafes, tea and tea enthusiasts can be found in every corner of the world.
Traditional teas are made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, such as Green Tea, Black Tea, and Oolong Tea. Herbal teas, on the other hand, are flavoured with fruits, herbs, spices and flowers and are available in a variety of flavours and tastes.
