The Secret of...TEA

Tea (English)
Chai (Hindi)
Theaneer (Tamil)

World’s Favorite Drink:

Tea is said to have been discovered in 2737 BC by a Chinese emperor when some tea leaves accidentally blew into a pot of boiling water.

In 618 AD tea became China's national drink and the word ch'a was used to describe tea.

There are four main types of tea: green tea, black tea, oolong tea and white tea. All tea comes from the same plant. The specific variety of tea plant and the way the leaves are processed after harvesting determine the type of tea that is created

How it is Grown?

Tea plant is an evergreen plant which can grow as tall as 40 ft, but in cultivation it is kept down to a bush 4 ft high.

The young shoots and leaves are picked every five days.

Once plucked, the young leaves are spread out on shelves and allowed to dry in a current of air for 4–18 hours.

Black teas are crushed in rolling machines to release the essential oils, allowed to ferment, and then dried and graded. The fermentation gives them a blackish-brown color.

Green teas are steamed or heated and then rolled, dried, and finally graded. They are green or partly green in color. Oolong Tea is semi-fermented, falling between black and green.

Interesting Facts:

India is the world’s largest producer and exporter of tea.

Tea bags were invented around 1908. The first bags were made from silk.

Research shows that moderate amounts of caffeine, 300 mg per day (or 7 cups of tea!) are safe for most people.

The finest tea comes from regions at elevations 5,000 feet above sea level where the plant grows more slowly in the cooler air and produces a more complex leaf of better flavor.

A single pound of tea will yield about 180 cups of brewed tea!

'Chai Tea' is the latest trendy beverage in the world market which has tea, milk and other Indian species.

Goodness:

Vitamins & Minerals:

When taken with milk, four cups of tea a day can provide you with significant amounts of the following nutrients: approximately 17% of the recommended intake for calcium, 5% for zinc, 22% for Vitamin B2, 5% for folic acid, and Vitamins B1 and B6.

Green tea is rich in Vitamin C and low in caffeine.

Strong Teeth:

Both black and green teas contain fluoride and they appear to control bacterial growth by reducing plaque.

Refreshing Tonic:

Tea actually contains almost half the amount of caffeine when compared to Coffee which can give you a much needed lift and revitalize you for a demanding and tiring afternoon ahead.

Antioxidants:

There is eight times the amount of 'anti-oxidant power' in three cups of tea than there is in one apple that protects against heart disease, cancer and tumor growth.

No Calories:

Tea is a naturally refreshing drink and taken on its own it has no calories, so it's the perfect drink to keep you looking good and feeling fit.

How can you enjoy?

Drink tea with milk and sugar as 98% of the tea drinkers prefer.

Just boil green tea in hot water and it is good for body with no calories.

Enjoy tea with lemon and honey which is tasty and refreshing.

Tea cookies and scones are also available for Tea lovers.

Ice tea is a famous refreshing bottled drink available in the market.
