India, which is one of the largest producers, exporters, and consumers of tea today in the world, had apparently not even learned how to drink it, until the late 1800s, although references to tea emerge from the Ramayana (750-500 BCE).

 

During the 1800s, and until much afterwards, America largely consumed green tea. Later, by the end of the nineteenth century, it was time for iced tea to rule hotel menus, railway platforms, and fairs. It was only during the World War II when the United States began facing shortage of its green tea resources, when black tea was imported from India.

Meanwhile, India, which is one of the largest producers, exporters, and consumers of tea today in the world, had apparently not even learned how to drink it, until the late 1800s. Although references to tea emerge from the Ramayana (750-500 BCE), India got a taste of its own crop only with the establishment of the Assam tea Company (1841) and the Indian Tea Association (1881).
