  1. Tea is consumed by more people and in greater
  2. amounts than any other beverage in the world, with
  3. the exception of water. The tea plant, from whose
  4. leaves tea is made, is native to India, China,
  5. and Japan and was first cultivated for use by the
  6. Chinese in prehistoric times. The plant, which is
  7. characterized as an evergreen, can reach a height of
  8. about thirty feet but is usually pruned down to
  9. three or four feet for cultivation. It has dark green
  10. leaves and cream-colored, fragrant blossoms.
  11. Cultivation of the tea plant requires a great deal
  12. of effort. The plant must grow in a warm, wet
  13. climate in a carefully protected, well-drained area.
  14. Its leaves must be picked by hand. (Cultivation in
  15. North America has been attempted, but was found
  16. to be impractical because of a shortage of cheap
  17. labor.) Today, the plant is cultivated in the lands to
  18. which it is native, as well as in Sri Lanka, Indonesia,
  19. Taiwan, and South America.
  20. Tea was probably first used as a vegetable relish
  21. and for medicinal purposes. In the 1400s Chinese
  22. and Japanese Buddhists developed a semireligious
  23. ceremony surrounding tea drinking. It was not
  24. until after 1700, however, that tea was first imported
  25. into Europe. Today, the United Kingdom
  26. imports more tea than does any other nation—
  27. almost one-third of the world’s production. The
  28. United States is also a large importer, but
  29. Americans have seemed to prefer coffee ever since
  30. the famous Boston Tea Party in 1773.
