Tea In The 1940’s

I guess I’m on a tea kick today!

I was watching this video and couldn’t help but wonder what was happening in the 1940’s in other parts of the world. Were they discovering tea for the first time? Were they burning their leaves and wishing there was some video to give them tips on how to make the perfect cup of tea? Think about places like China, Japan or India, they would have probably thought this video was hilarious, even in the 40’s. Let’s think about indigenous populations like the Kichwa people of Ecuador. They probably knew how to steep the perfect pot of tea  before anyone!

I think the one thing that has remained the same, through the years and across the continents, is that tea has been a catalyst to bring together families, friends and communities. That will never change.

 Enjoy this video. And please, Don’t put your teas near disinfectants! :)
