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!

Umm...If she is the kind of girl that likes to talk a lot and tells everybody what is going on then the whole school will know when she finds out you like her.  I say who cares if the whole school knows you like her.  I like it if a boy tells me he likes me and ask me out.  I don't like boys trying to be sneaky coz they stink at it and end up looking stupid.  If you want to be sneaky about it you can ask her if she can help you with your homework or ask her if she wants to hang with you and your friends at the mall or you can look at her and smile and see if she smiles back at you.

well, as a girl i know that i like it when boys are up front with there feelings. girls like to know that they can trust you to tell them the truth no matter who's watching you.  that may show that you really do like her. if you need to do it privately, then mabey if you do any after school activities and she does then ask her then. jojo(:
