Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Chai Tea

Masala Chai – Hindi for "spiced tea" – has long been served by chaiwalas as a traditional Indian street drink. Tea was only later added during the British Raj, but the essential blend of spices and hot milk remained the same.
