Raise a cup to tea
Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water.
In fact, on any given day, more than 158 million Americans drink tea.
Approximately 85 percent of tea consumed in America is iced, but the soothing and refreshing flavors of tea can also infuse fresh and unexpected character into a wide range of dishes, from desserts to popular finger foods like chicken wings.
What’s more, tea has been shown to have significant health benefits.
As green, black, oolong and white teas all come from the Camellia sinensis plant, tea drinkers can reap the health benefits from whichever tea they prefer.
