TEA....The old-fashioned beverage of the future


Tea,the world's most popular beverage after water, cames entirely from a single species of evergreen shrub, Camellia sinensis, a relative of the flowering Camellia. Man has been cultivating this particuler tea Camellia for over 2000 years for both medicinal and beverage purposes. The modern cultivation of tea began about 150 years ago and, based on growing conditions and processing, a variety of different tasting teas emerged. Eventually,"Iced Tea" was introduced in 1904 at the St. Louis world's fair and became an immediate hit.Today,iced tea consumption worldwide exceeds 2 billion gallons per year and represents one of the fastest growing segments of the enormous beverage market.
