Tea and Wine

I attended a bridal shower this afternoon. It was a wine and cheese shower. Each guest brought 2 bottles of the same wine - one was opened and shared, and the other was put in a wine rack for the bride-to-be to take home. Among others, there were Bourdeaux and Burgundy wines from France, and Chianti from Italy (Tuscany).

Did you know that like wines, teas are often named for the areas where they are grown? Here are some examples:

Ceylon (Sri Lanka)
Assam (India)
Darjeeling (India)
Kenya (Africa)
Yunnan (China)
Formosa Oolong (Taiwan)
