Tea is a drink that has been enjoyed by people for thousands of years. It is made by soaking tea leaves in hot water. This is referred to as steeping. Tea plants, or Camellia sinensis, grow in many places around the world. China is the country that grows the most tea.
There are three main types of tea. Most of the tea used in China is oolong tea. Green tea is popular in India. Black tea is the most common type in the U.S. The different types of tea are made by different drying methods. Tea can be enjoyed with a mix of herbs or spices like mint, lemon basil, cinnamon, or ginger. It can also have citrus, berries, or other fruit added. Some people add sweeteners like sugar, maple syrup, or honey to their tea before they drink it.
