All About Tea

Jan 15, 2013

Tea is a favorite warm (and cold!) beverage across the globe. Whether you prefer it black or green, everyone can agree on its soothing, healing qualities. And since January is Hot Tea Month, it’s the perfect time to learn more about this delicious drink!

History

Tea plants originally come from East and South Asia, with the earliest records of tea drinking going back to the 10th Century BC. Because of its delicious taste and healing properties, tea was eventually imported to Europe and other parts of the world. Britain, which is known for its daily afternoon tea time, fell in love with the beverage early in the 19th Century.

Types of Tea

There are many different varieties of tea. Some of these include black, green, oolong, white, herbal, chai and rooibos. Black tea is what we commonly find in the grocery store by brands like Tetley. Some examples are Earl Grey and English Breakfast. Herbal teas are also very popular for their intense, often fruity flavors. Herbals teas do not contain any caffeine and come in flavors like lemon, apple cinnamon, peach, strawberry and more!

Ice Tea

In North America, it is very popular to drink cold tea. But, make sure you order the right drink! In America, if you order an ice tea you will get a steeped tea that has been cooled. But, if you want it to be sweeter (with sugar), you should order a sweet tea instead!

I'm an older sister to a 13 year old brother. Neither of us really agree on much, either. I prefer this, he prefers that. I prefer that, he prefers this. It's natural regarding age differences. Even just a years worth can hold plenty. It's best to meet in the middle with things. Like, my brother and I for instance don't really agree on anything. But, it's good to meet somewhere with things to do together whether its agreeing on a movie to watch or playing a video-game together. Even drawing or helping each other out with something. Just keep in mind, when it comes to this, you won't always want to do what they want.

I understand this situation. Personally, you can tell your sister if you're completely sure on what happen. But, make sure she stays quiet about it until you both come to an agreement on when you should confront your parents about what you saw.

Here's something to think about @IlikeGUYS20, I can say this about myself, and I'm sure, from this post, you'd agree. I'd love to have a girlfriend, and I'd also love to have a boyfriend. I'd be open to date any gender that my romantic partner would claim. We should just see what makes us happy before we label ourselves. Thanks! :)Have a wonderful day!:rainbow ❤

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.
