Tea (Camellia sinensis) is one of the widely consumed beverages in India and across the globe. From the archaeological evidence, the plant is originated in China and India (Assam region) around 6000 years ago. Then the tea travelled to Japan to Great Britain to all over the world. Tea is the second highest beverage consumed after water. It has been imbibed in cultures of various countries and is consumed in different forms. Previously, tea was used for culinary purpose; people used to chew the tea leaves and consume it with food grains. However, around 1500 years ago, it has been consumed as a beverage. In China, tea bricks were used instead of tea powder in early years. People used to break the required quantity of the brick and use it with hot water to drink.
