Hey everyone, since we will be doing tea reviews here thought it might be good to just do a quick def on what tea is.
Tea is an aromatic beverage prepared by pouring boiling hot water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The term also refers to the plant itself. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, astringent flavour which many people enjoy. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea
So there that is the def. Now from what I understand tea is the kind of plant that veries in taste alot depending on where it is grown. Kind of like grapes for wine. That is the reason we have so many different kinds of tea is because they are grown in different places. Also similar to wine you can process the raw plant in alot of different ways. Which has lead to all the great flavors we have today. Do you think anyone will ever create some new kinds of teas or way to process them that we havent seen yet, I cant see why it couldnt happen especially with the improvemtn of technology.
