There is also a lot of information about the weather conditions in that place one wants to visit and there is also a lot of information about what they should be aware of when they arrive. The only thing left for people to do is to do their research and to have a lot of free time for traveling.
There are a lot of people who want to travel but just do not have the time to visit all the places in their to-go list. That is why they need to decide which places you need to see the most. They also should have in mind the things they want to see when they arrive at the destination.
Today we decided yo make a special list for people who like both traveling and tea. If you are one of the people who cannot imagine a day without a cup of tea, then you need to check out the list we have prepared for you today – destinations where you can find great tea.
When people think of Argentina, they think of the dance Tango and some of the most delicious kinds of steaks in the world. They would hardly think of tea as something iconic for the country. However, there is one hot and delicious drink which is said to be Argentina’s national drink. This is mate tea.
What is interesting about it is that cafes do not serve the drink. A place where you can try it out is a local person’s home. Another thing that is interesting about this tea is that it is a social drink. All the people drink from the same bowl made of gourd and they use a metal straw.
The experience is perfect for tourists who want to get in touch with the local culture.

India is a country that has rich culture and people are familiar with some of its special traditional dishes, like its spicy cuisine. People also know it as the country where cows are sacred. But it is not that often mention that tea industry in India is huge and that the country is one of the largest tea producers in the world.
