Instant Tea[edit]

Suggesting that a separate article is made that goes more in depth into this topic.

As for what to put in that article: brief history, processing, and composition. The processing section should have a bulk of the physical chemistry involved in making instant tea.

If not, edits could be made to the subsection of the existing tea article, but there's definitely enough information to make a separate article.

Semi-protected edit request on 8 March 2017[edit]

Black tea and red tea are different in tea system. It is better to add Red Tea, including Pu-erh Tea and Jinjunmei in the Red tea list. JqZ (talk) 19:22, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Second most consumed beverage[edit]

Considering the recent growth of coffee and the decline in tea sales, I question the statement that tea surpasses coffee in consumption. I looked at many sources that indicate coffee consumption is now larger worldwide.
