“Tea should be taken in solitude.”

A milk drink other than coffee. Instant tea is a powder added in order to be called a cup of tea. Dehydrated flavor, aroma, and color compounds are found in tea with milk and boiled water or the tea is iced. Other ingredients can be added, such as sugar for taste, citric acid and other flavors that would not normally be found in tea leaves. Tea bags is the first thing I associate with tea.

According to legend the origin of tea has been known in China since 2700BCE. Then it was used as a medicinal beverage. In the 3rd century is when it became the daily milk drink of choice by people. There is two different kinds of calories in instant tea that is unsweetened. Roughly 74% carbs and 26% protein. Unsweetened instant tea with lemon is the healthier option then having tea with artificial sweeteners.

Coffee is better than Tea. Tea is good for a  quick alternative if there is no coffee. There is a study that proves that it limits increases in blood sugar. Instant tea is very high in fluoride so its good for your teeth. There is over 3000 varieties of tea and some say its the most consumed beverage in the world after water. I need to try more types of teas to find the best top 10 tea flavors. I recommend instant tea to Australians because a study in 2016 said 1 and 2 people living in Australia drink tea at least once a week.
