Tea is the most popular manufactured drink consumed in the world, equaling all others, including coffee, chocolate, soft drinks, and alcohol combined with India being the world's largest tea drinking nation.
Most of us associate tea with the British, and for good reason. In the United Kingdom, tea is considered one of Britain's cultural beverages, with most offering it to their guests soon after their arrival, with afternoon tea and cakes on fine porcelain being a cultural stereotype.
Tea ceremonies have arisen in different cultures, such as the Chinese and Japanese traditions, which each have their own techniques and ritualised protocol of brewing and serving tea for enjoyment in refined settings.
Becoming more popular is loose tea. This tea must be individually measured for use, allowing individuals control over the flavour. To use loose tea, you will need to use one of the following, a strainer, a tea ball, a tea press, a filtered teapot, all of which will prevent the loose leaves from floating in the tea and over brewing.
