Best Tea Houses in Orlando
Where did tea come from?
A tea house, from the name itself, is a place in which people go when they want to have a cup of tea, sometimes even combine it with other activities such as eating and watching events. Culture is a big factor in how these tea houses are designed and even for their general purpose. As different kinds of teas became popular through time, they slowly started to get bigger than just a drink to order with your meal. Slowly a whole culture began to form around tea itself, and so were the tea houses born. And as tea started to get consumed more and more, people started to build more and more tea houses.
Their shape and form differ considerably, as do the occasions on which you drink tea. This is mainly observed between different cultures. In some places such as Japan, tea is used in formal ceremonies, while in other places such as England, it is often served with a snack to relax from a long day at work or shopping. The difference between cultures can also be observed in the different kinds of buildings that are used as tea houses in each of these places.
