Your One - Stop Online Tea Shop
Tea, a word that immediately makes a person think about a refreshing experience, is certainly the second-most consumed beverage in the world. Right from being invented in 2737 BC in China to modern day online tea shop, tea has made its way from being herbal medicine to a sophisticated drink which even the Queen of England is fond of. Today, tea has become a necessity for almost 85% of the businessmen and working professionals. This is mainly because with each sip tea lovers are teleported from their busy schedule to a lush green tea garden that reminds them how beautiful the nature is and its gifts (Yes, we are talking about tea!).
