Sometime during the past few months, I came across an article about tea ceremonies in different parts of the world (you can find the link at the bottom of post). While I did find it to be an enjoyable read, it bothered me that the author began by stating “America doesn’t really have what you’d call a tea drinking culture, save for the sweet tea sipping crowd down South.” Well, this got stuck in my head and kept on nagging me. I don’t agree with that statement. We may be a young country in comparison to the rest of the world, but to say that we don’t have a tea drinking culture, hmm? Nope… I think America’s tea culture is alive and well!
