When it comes to making a statement, tea has a history of taking center stage. From getting tossed into the Boston harbor circa 1773 to being used as an idiom for catching up on the latest drama—tea (and the spilling of it) has always seemed to create quite the stir when it comes to a conversation starter.
Whether you’re looking for a more energized start to your day or a cozy way to wind down, tea can also provide the best hug in a mug for your mind on many levels.
