ONE FOR THE POT •





2.5 million tons of tea is produced annually in more than 40 countries, most in Asia, as well as Africa and South America


Only the plant’s bud and two young leaves are processed for tea


Woburn Abbey. Her habit of tucking in to afternoon tea soon caught on, with high-society women pulling on gowns, gloves and hats for the occasion. The afternoon pick-me-up came at a time when only breakfast and a late evening meal was served, and before long no one could resist sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon – moving the secretive snack from the bedroom to the drawing room of 19th century homes.


Today, while tourists imagine, as a nation, “at half past three, everything stops for tea”, it has become more of


a luxury, enjoyed in the colder months, before a roaring fire, and – like, in its heyday - after a brisk walk. As the world’s second biggest tea drinking nation, behind Ireland, afternoon tea has become a firm favourite, making it onto the menu at a growing number of venues across Kent, from country homes to hotels, cafes and coffee shops, to restaurants and pubs. So, with your little finger poised get ready to pour!


SPECIAL BREW


Until the 5th century AD, Green tea was primarily used as a remedy, because of the medicinal benefits attributed to it. While it has been suggested that tea may help reduce blood pressure, toothache, cancer, clogging of the arteries and cholesterol, most use it as a pick-me-up, owing to its caffeine content and stimulant theophylline.


• White tea, Green tea, Oolong tea and Black tea are produced from the same plant species, Camellia Sinensis. Their distinguishing features come from the different drying and processing techniques.


BAGS OF FUN


The invention of tea bags at the beginning of the 20th century by New Yorker Thomas Sullivan led to the rise in tea consumption. The tea merchant developed the idea after sending tea samples in white silk bags to his customers.
