The Importance of Tea

Tea is not just a beverage, but an integral part of our nation’s being. It is a symbol of hospitality and respect. Being served at every and any occasion – from a short meeting, to a large gathering, in transport and at hospitals – tea is a social lubricant. Hence, the phrase “share the tea”!

But here, we shall not be indulging in “tea” but rather discuss the benefits of black tea – the base of our best-selling Plum + Roses Brew!
