As you read this 165 million cups of tea will have been drunk in the United Kingdom in the last 24 hours. As a drink tea is easy to make, bang a bag in a cup and add hot water.
But are we doing this great drink justice?
The majority of these cups will have been a morning brew as we rush to prepare ourselves for the day, or to be guzzled down during that five minute work break. All with minimal thought and effort being made n the key components for making a cup of tea. Is this how the chinese poets will have envisioned this once magical elixir hat inspired them so?
I find myself using tea more and more as a refuge, taking pleasure in the time taken to brew that perfect cup of tea. Looking back to when tea was a pleasure not a convenience.
To enhance the consumption of tea by making users more aware of the complexities in tea - how they brew it and ow they drink it, by using modern technologies and traditional ideals.
