Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over curled leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis .After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavour that many people enjoy.
Tea originated in China as a medicinal drink. It was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in China during the 16th century. Drinking tea became popular in Britain during the 17th century. The British introduced it to India, in order to compete with the Chinese monopoly on the product.
Black tea grades are primarily used to classify the size of the tea leaf. The size can range from whole leaf (Pekoe) to dust (used in tea bags). The number of grades can be overwhelming to a casual tea observer. Pekoe, for example, has many variations such as Orange Pekoe (a tea leaf between 8 and 15 cm long), Broken Orange Pekoe (BOP), and Broken Pekoe (BP).
