17 reasons why we drink tea

In my first post, I explained to you why I’m so passionate about tea. But as autumn settles in and I find myself craving hot drinks even more than usual, I’ve started thinking more about the role tea plays in our life. I’m probably biased, but I really do think that no other drink in the world has such an important and universal role, across cultures and countries.
