Tea! This subreddit is for discussion of beverages made from soaking Camellia sinensis leaves (or twigs) in water, and, to a lesser extent, herbal infusions, yerba mate, and other tisanes. Talk about your favorite place to buy tea, the growers and farms, processing methods, vendors, or equipment. There's a whole world of tea out there beyond the humble (yet handy) bag, and this is a great place to learn!

If you are having trouble getting started, the r/tea FAQ includes many topics that may help.

Also, check out The Non-Judgmental Guide to Tea.
