Tea is a drink made from the leaves (and sometimes other parts) of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are processed in different ways, and then are brewed into a beverage by steeping them in hot water. The different methods of processing lead to different types of tea, including green tea, black tea, oolong tea, white tea, pu-erh, and other varieties. Tea originated in China and India, and is consumed worldwide.

Other beverages also bear the name "tea", including herbal teas such as mint tea, chamomile tea, hibiscus tea, and many others. These are technically not true teas as they do not contain the tea plant. The term "herbal tea" encompasses hot water infusions made from any plant(s) other than the tea plant.
