Tea is a popular drink that people around the world enjoy every day.
Believe it or not, tea actually comes from the leaves of a special type of bush called the Camellia sinensis.
The story of tea starts in ancient China – over 5,000 years ago and was used for medicinal purposes before it became a hot drink.
As time went on, people discovered they could make different types of tea, we have green, black, white, and oolong tea, by changing how they processed the tea leaves.
What’s awesome about tea is that you not only drink it for its delicious taste, you can also drink it for its health benefits.
Tea is packed with substances called antioxidants, which can help your body stay healthy by fighting off harmful chemicals in your body called free radicals.
However, it’s not just good for the inside of your body; it’s good for the outside too.
