Tea is a comfort drink that is pretty much work on any given day or with any mood. When it's chilly out and you are in need of a way to warm you up, when you want to feel like you're being hugged, when you're sick, and especially as a way to let off some steam on a hot day as iced tea. 

According to Chinese culture, Emperor Shen Nong accidentally discovered tea in 2737 B.C.E. While he was boiling water in his garden, a tea leaf fell into his pot creating the first tea cup. He loved it so much and decided to start further researching the newly discovered drink and its medicinal power.

Why use instant tea when you can just pick up a little baggy from your pantry? The answer is just that! Save yourself the trouble of worrying about where you last put your tea bags or the string that keeps falling in, and turn to instant tea. In addition, researchers at McGill University in Canada found out that a "single tea bag can leak billions of pieces of microplastic into your brew."

How do you make instant tea?

Take a little tea powder out of the long-lasting bag with a spoon (the recommended serving size is 1/8 tsp) and combine with 8-10fl oz hot or cold water. Stir and enjoy!
