Dear Tess and Ravi,
The Chinese have been drinking tea for thousand years. Nowadays, there are still many people drink tea all the time. Usually, we don't drink with milk or sugar. We don't pick some tea leaves from caddy to throw in a tea pot or a big cup and then pour in boiling water. We don't use tea bag often because people think the tea should store in a sealed container to keep it freshing. There are lots kinds of tea in China. Green tea, red tea, Tie Guanyin and oolong tea etc.
