Tea and Men

Tea and Men

There are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, they drink tea.” –Gary Snyder

Tea is the second most consumed drink around the world (second only to water). However, sometimes tea can be perceived as a predominantly women's drink. Truth is, it has a long history of also benefiting men. Tea has been part of the masculine identity for ages. Back in the 15th century, it was a major part of Samurai culture and afterwards, the British soldiers used it as a pick me up for their fights during World War II. And somehow, the tea culture never developed in America even after having scientific proof that has a direct benefit in people’s health.

 

Why?

During the American Revolution, Great Britain controlled the shipping routes preventing the luxury goods and tea to have fair trade with America. Once the revolution stopped, everyone went back to drinking tea until the war of 1812 where the supply stopped, again. That’s when America decided to focus on a product with easier availability: coffee. With time, coffee became the go-to drink for Americans while leaving behind the healthier and more luxurious drink – tea.
