Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world just after water. It is normally prepared with hot water, poured on tea leaves. Originally from China, tea is thought to have many health benefits.
The most common types of tea are the yellow, white, green and black. Some variation with additives include bergamot (Earl Grey), vanilla and caramel. The name herbal tea is confusing as it is made of herbs or fruits but does not actually contain tea. Better names for it are tisane or herbal infusion. Tea is widely consumed including at social events like after tea and tea party.
