Goes the dry days, burned skin and sweat,
Drizzling after summer makes the land wet.
Not jumping in the muddy ponds,
Gone are the old days and those bonds.
Age and this beautiful rain,
Makes me drink tea relieving all the pain.
Yes, of course, it is running outside the poet in me is awake and all I need is tea. Tea is a beverage that is widely consumed in Turkey, Ireland, and the UK. It has tons of flavors, addons, and variations.

Now let us know what’s up with the tea bags!
It is said that the USA was the one that invented tea bags first in 1908 by Thomas Sullivan. And another story claims that China itself invented tea bags to preserve the aroma of the tea in the Thang dynasty.
Is tea bags safe?
A single plastic tea bag can discharge 11.6 billion microplastic and 3.1 billion nano-plastic particles into the water, according to a study conducted by researchers at McGill University on four well-known brands of tea available in supermarkets. Though specialists are still unsure of the precise impact those substances have on our systems, drinking plastic hardly seems wise (or healthy).
The polypropylene that many manufacturers use to shut tea bags is where the particles originate from. Even though many meals and beverages (even water bottles) contain these microplastics, the study discovered that the levels produced by tea bags were thousands of times higher than those of other goods.
