Tea is one of the world's most popular beverages and is widely drunk even in coffee-drinking countries. In many regions, tea is a much more popular beverage in the home than in the restaurant. Part of the difference may be due to mishandling in the restaurant and indifference on the part of restaurateurs.
Food service professionals would do well to pay more attention to tea. First of all, it is much less expensive than coffee to serve. One pound (500 g) of tea yields 200 servings, as compared with 40 servings from 1 pound (500 g) of coffee. Moreover, tea is one of the simplest of beverages to serve and does not require the equipment or the labor of coffee service.
