Do you know what would make this cup of water 1000x more delicious? A powerful kettle and a sprinkle of the Earth’s finest leaves and flowers. Early tea drinkers were onto something. Whilst shivering in a cave centuries ago with a ceramic mug in their hands, they accidentally invented the most complex and varietal beverage known to man. Tea has transcended cultures, continents, and communities, binding humanity for a complimentary 10-minute activity that we can all enjoy. For those of us still enjoying tea to this day, there’s a high chance that we’ve become snobs about it. We’re particular about our tea vessels, we like our traditional techniques, and we certainly will never be caught dead in a Starbies.
