Spain is another country that seems to prefer coffee to tea. Coffee shops were popular hangouts for men to gather, drink coffee, and discuss politics. Tea was introduced by Queen Victoria Eugenia, the daughter of Queen Victoria. Because it was introduced by the Queen from her native Britain to her court, tea was considered a drink of high society. Despite this, they do offer several different teas. One of these teas is Pu-erh, or Te Rojo.
Curiously, while Pu-erh is a black tea, in China it is known as a red tea.
To celebrate, today I am drinking a nice Pu-erh tea.
