For more than 5,000 years tea has refreshed and invigorated, as it calmed and soothed. Originally cultivated in China, tea is now produced throughout
Asia and around the world: from India and Sri Lanka, to Africa and Japan, and more recently in Hawaii and England. There are thousands of varieties
and flavours, and there is a tea for every occasion and taste.
Many people are enjoying tea as part of a healthy lifestyle. Tea is rich in antioxidant properties, and according to an increasing number of research
studies, this may indicate that tea is of potential benefit in reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers.
