25 Sep Win Tetley Tea!
Tea is a common beverage consumed in my house (and the second most consumed beverage around the world, after water). I especially love a hot cup of tea on a cool crisp morning or over ice on a hot summer afternoon. Black tea is my favorite type and I’m excited to give away a box to one lucky commenter!
Tea Around the World
Tea is enjoyed in countries all over the world, especially in the top winning countries in this summer’s Olympic games. Tetley took a look at the important role tea plays in the cultures of these countries including The United States, China and Russia to see if tea could be their secret weapon for success. Tetley Tea shares their findings below:
- United States: The U.S. had a solid showing in swimming and the women’s gymnastics team was able to keep their cool to reclaim the top title. As it happens, in the US, 85% of tea is consumed over ice – which is quite different from the rest of the world. So tea- hot and iced is still a popular beverage throughout the country.
- China: With top honors in sports like swimming and diving, China was a dominant force this summer. Tea happens to be one of the most important parts of any meal or social gathering in China and is had with almost every meal.
- Russia: Russia not only came with top honors on the mat with gymnastics but also dominated on the Track & Field events. Russia was part of the most dramatic battle against the American gymnast for first place. Tea is a traditional beverage in Russia and it is consumed by more than 90% of Russian citizens and is a very important part of hospitality and hosting guests.
While we can’t know for sure whether or not tea played a role in acquiring gold medals, it does give us amateur athletes another reason to sip on our favorite variety of tea.
