A TED-Ed video on "The history of tea"

I've been looking up online tea videos, and I was surprised that I'd never come across this TED-Ed talk on "The history of tea."

The video is just about five minutes long, and it's a nice introduction to tea history. If you're like me, you know so much tea history and even trivia by now that it's sometimes hard to whittle down the topic when someone asks you about tea. This was a good reminder of the basics, and I will return to this video the next time I'm planning a speech about tea and need to make bullet points about tea history. 

There are some additional resources accompanying the video (under the headings Watch, Think, Dig Deeper, and Discuss) that may be of interest to some of you as well. If you've seen any good tea videos yourself, please feel free to leave a link in the comments!


  1. Thank you! That's a nice little video on tea--short and sweet.

  2. Hi Angela, Another place to find the "greatest hits" of info about tea is in the little 2019 book, The Philosophy of Tea by Tony Gebely.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
