Tea the name itself has become synonymous as being a soothing beverage. Sure it is a pleasant drink and refreshes us when we are tired and thirsty; but it also stimulates the body and boosts the metabolism among its many health benefits. Regarded for thousands of years in the East as a key to good health, happiness, and wisdom, it has caught the attention of researchers in the West, who are discovering the many health benefits of different types of tea. Studies have found that some types of tea may help with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes; green tea encourages weight loss; lower cholesterol; and bring about mental alertness. Lemon tea serves as a refreshment beverage especially if served cold. It also appears to have antimicrobial qualities.
Tea plant is a low green bush. It first originated from China and then in India many years ago, both countries today being the one of biggest producers. The beverage is concocted from the dried leaves of the plant. The leaves are gathered by the workers from the bushes four times a year. These leaves are then dried first in the sun. Next they are rolled and roasted in iron pots and dried again over charcoal fires. In this process the leaves become black. Afterwards they are broken up and crushed into tea powder. It is prepared for drinking by adding tea powder or leaves to boiling water. After some time the water becomes brown and tea is ready to drink. Different cultures have different variations of preparing tea. Indians take tea with milk and sugar. The Russians mix lemon juice. English and the Chinese drink it without any additions.
