Tea Culture and Tea Traditions of North America
Tea Drinking Culture
in North America
North America consists of the United States of America (USA), Canada and Mexico. These countries are known for its coffee culture rather than tea. But it doesn't mean that they don't have a tea culture. After the initial introduction of tea, by the Dutch settlers in 1600s, tea has been a permanent presence and a symbol of revolution as signaled by the Boston Tea party. It has gained momentum in new fashionable lifestyles of the younger generation as well as appealing to the taste of the old.
