Is coffee becoming more popular than tea worldwide? We enjoyed learning a bit about the history of these two beverages.
“It’s an ongoing battle: do the world’s people prefer coffee or tea? China and India, countries whose billions of citizens comprise a hefty percentage of the global population, lead the way in tea consumption. Now, however, that tradition might be changing. Coffee is not only the second most traded commodity globally (oil is the number one), it’s being brought into many Third World countries under famous American labels, such as Starbuck’s and Seattle’s Best as a ready-to-drink product.”
