Interesting facts about Tea

There are a handful of interesting things when it comes to the History of Tea, starting from its origin and the very ritual of drinking. We will single out some of the more interesting ones.

  • The first Tea did not have many similarities with the Tea we know today, both in Appearance and in the Method of Preparation. The oldest Tea was in the form of cookies or briquettes. Before use, the briquettes were kept over a fire to soften, and then they were crumbled and boiled in water to which Rice, Ginger, Orange peel, Milk and some other spices were added. Such Tea was more like a kind of soup than a beverage.
  • The United Kingdom is most responsible for spreading the custom of drinking Tea around the world.
  • The popularity of Tea in Britain rose very fast, and demand for it was so great that in addition to its smuggling, Tea counterfeiting also took off. The leaves of other plants were dyed in Green Tea by some sellers – and sold as Green Tea, however, the dye they used was poisonous. Black Tea was harder to counterfeit, so the demand for it increased significantly.
  • It is believed that the famous British custom of “Five o’clock Tea” was invented by Anna, the seventh Countess of Bedford. On a long rainy English afternoon, she offered her guests some tea, sandwiches and cookies during a bridge party. This custom also had a great social significance because monotonous afternoons were turned into something interesting, pleasant and different.
  • As many as 2.5 billion cups of tea are drunk every day in the world.
  • Black, Green, Indian, Russian – these are just some of about 1500 different Tea tastes from the four basic tea groups: White Tea, Green Tea, Black and Oolong Tea.
  • In Serbia, especially in Belgrade, tea came into vogue only at the end of the 19th century, and the custom of gathering at Tea Parties was maintained with greater or lesser interruptions, until the Second World War. Following the example of Western Europe, richer families organized Tea Parties as a social event. People used to exert themselves not only that service and Tea Service were according to European standards, but they also took care of appropriate clothes, nice manners and appropriate conversation topics. Initially, Tea Parties were organized only during the early afternoon and were reserved exclusively for women’s company. Later, the custom of extending these gatherings until the evening hours became established, so the husbands also were able to take part in them after returning from work.

After the Second World War, Tea Parties as a form of gathering completely disappeared from the social scene in Serbia, and the return or re-arrival of tea in Serbia almost coincides with the beginning of the new millennium. It is only in the last ten years that interest in tea has re-emerged.

The right choice of tea for breakfast will allow you to wake up, and will also bring benefits to your body. Tea refreshes the mind and body while in the afternoon and evening, it calms, relaxes or also encourages calmer sleep.

Benefits of consuming tea in the morning:

  1. A drink rich in Antioxidants

After sleep, that is, during the night, your body can become dehydrated because you have not consumed any fluids for hours. When you wake up and feel sluggish, reaching for a cup of tea can help in many ways.

Although a cup of coffee in the morning is for many types of rituals, tea has much more to offer in terms of health benefits because it contains flavonoids – natural antioxidants.

  • Tea is a better source of Caffeine

Tea contains a small amount of Caffeine, which is enough to provide the energy needed in the morning. Low Caffeine content makes tea a better choice for people
trying to reduce their daily Caffeine intake. If you want a healthy coffee substitute that is not addictive, Black or Green Tea is recommended. As these two flavors come from the same plant – Camellia sinensis, their main difference is in the amount of Caffeine they possess. Longer fermentation of tea also means a higher amount of Caffeine in it. This is exactly the reason why people prefer Black Tea when they need Caffeine.

  • Boosts Your Metabolism

It is well known that tea is rich in antioxidants and that it works successfully during the process of reducing fat deposits. Tea substances can help healthier digestion and speed up metabolism. Green Tea stands out as a recommendation for a healthy drink that speeds up calorie burning because it contains Catechins. In addition, Green Tea contains Caffeine, which boosts metabolism, and thus stimulates fat burning.

  • Helps in recovery after exercise
