Greetings! My name is Micaela Lacy and I'm the new girl here at Daily Infographic. Since this is my very first post, why not start things off right with a nice cup of tea?
Tea has been an obsession of many for thousands of years. Discovered in Ancient China, the art of making the perfect cup of tea continues to be debated to this day. Even the great George Orwell chimed in with his own tea wisdom, in a detailed essay instructing the masses on how to prepare a proper cup of tea.
The health benefits alone are reason enough to break out the mugs. Increased metabolism rates, cancer fighting antioxidants, and better moods have all been associated with this world-renowned beverage.
Personally, I don't discriminate when it comes to this drink. Black, green, caffeine-free, every type warms and comforts. But no matter what your preference is, I think you will find that this infographic has a similar effect. It's got a little of everything. Nutrition facts, history, and those oh-so-important steeping times. I may love all tea equally, but different teas require different types of love.
Who knows, some of the world's greatest problems might just be solved over nothing more than a decent cup of tea. [Via]
