fourth gift of tea: cultural inclusion

It’s the second most widely consumed beverage in the world so what a great way to create a bond with people from different cultures.  Tea is a primary household and workplace beverage in China, India, Japan, Canada, countries of the Middle East, Britain, various regions of Germany, Denmark, Russia, Australia and many more.  Each of these cultures has rituals and traditions around how they enjoy tea and it’s an easy question for someone of any language to answer:  what kind of tea do you like? 

Tea is not religion, it’s not politics, it’s a simple beverage that delights so many people whether there are words spoken or not. 

As we become more global and work with a diverse world of people, tea can be a source of common bond, respect and connection.
