Perfect cup of tea

Extracts from this document...


Perfect cup of tea William Gladstone once said:" If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you." Today tea is one of the most widely used beverages in the world. The origins of Tea were eastern countries like China, India, Korea, Sri-lanka.
