Thanks to its history, tea is recognised as one of the world’s most refined and elegant beverages.
Once the mainstay of the aristocracy, it has gradually become enjoyed by people the world over. It is now enjoyed across the globe, drunk from morning to night.
The way in which it is taken, however, varies according to local customs. Tea is drunk variously piping hot or ice cold, with or without milk, sweet or bitter, strong or weak, from a small bowl or a china cup.
In short, tea is an ubiquitous beverage that can accommodate all tastes and fashions.
