How many different types of tea are there in the world? Well according to UK Tea & Infusions Association there are approximately 1,500 different varieties of tea !!
They also say that Tea breaks are a tradition that have been with us for approximately 200 years, and by the mid 18th C tea replaced ale and gin as the drink of the masses to become Britain’s most popular beverage.
One thing I certainly did NOT know about tea is that it is a natural source of fluoride that can help protect against tooth decay and gum disease. I presumed wrongly that because it stained your teeth it couldn’t be good for them.
