Tea Culture

Tea takes part in dailylife of people all over the world: in Asia, in North-Africa, in Middle-East people make tea to welcome a guest, drink tea while bargaining at the marketplace, to keep in good health, to quench one's thirst... Tea is drunk plain or mixed with spices, butter, rice, milk, candy sugar, mint leaves; according to different customs tea is whipped, boiled, infused and even eaten.
People drink tea on train, at home, at school,in restaurant, at work, in the monastery... But although an everyday drink, tea drinking sometimes developes into a rite, a ceremony, a veritable art.
