I recently visited Vital Tea Leaf in the neighborhood of Chinatown in San Fransisco, California. There I started to discover that there was more to tea than just the simple package of leaves. I mean let’s be honest. How many of you have ever taken a break to contemplate the creation of tea?
So with my curiosity awakened, I went to the one place a broke college student can go to learn without a major price tag. The local library. I found a book that does a wonderful job capturing the complexity of the tea making processes, the benefits of tea, and how tea affects the world in various ways. The books was The Tea Book by Linda Gaylard. I was fascinated by what I learned so I am sharing it with you. Here are the top 10 cool factoids about tea that I learned.
