History of tea in the U.S.

WhatsCookingAmerica.net has an interesting history of tea in the United States.


Did you know, for instance, that in the 1800s


English and American cookbooks shows us that tea has been served cold at least since the early nineteenth century, when cold green tea punches, that were heavily spiked with liquor, were popularized.

So remember, if you're enjoying, say, a nice ginger green tea hot toddy, you're carrying on an old American tradition.
