Tea

Tea is, right after water, the most widely consumed beverage in the world!
"Tea" can either refer to the Chinese Camellia sinensis plant (or parts thereof), or the aromatic drink prepared from cured leaves and hot/boiling water. All teas are made from the same species of plant! The processing or growing method is what creates the varieties. The most common are: white, green, black & oolong.
