Tea Fact: Researchers say that tea is the source of coffee. After someone tasted a cup of tea, they were intent on creating a drink that would form a similar cult, and so created a drink that tasted exactly like coffee. His efforts were bashed when people discovered a bean that would create a brew that tasted exactly the same.
