There are many varieties of teas. Kashmiri tea, Ginger Tea, Tulsi Tea, Masala Tea, Cardamom Tea, Limbu Tea, Green Tea, etc. are some that must be tasted at least once. After water, tea is the second most consumed beverage in India.

Tea is an aromatic beverage in high demand in the global market. Tea is an important part of some people’s lives because they feel it provides a rhythm to their lives.

The scientific name of this versatile plant is Camellia sinensis (which actually refers to the beautiful camellia flowers found in botanical gardens and landscapes). Camellia sinensis is a sub-tropical, evergreen plant native to Asia but now grown worldwide. The tea plant thrives in loose, deep soils, in highlands and in subtropical climates. So in short, “tea” is derived from the Camellia sinensis plant.

It is known by other names like tea, chai, and chaha and is loved by many people. Many have the habit of drinking tea immediately after waking up in the morning after having lunch and snacks. They often drink tea while working.

About 80 per cent of the total tea produced in India is consumed by Indians.
