Why do Millennials Love Tea?
Think about your childhood. Consider how many times chocolate played a significant role in your favorite memories. That should have put a dreamy smile on your face. Consider your life as an adult. Consider how many evenings or late afternoons tea has helped you unwind. Isn't that another reason to smile? What if you could combine the pleasures of these two simple pleasures? No, it is not immature. It is, in fact, an exciting trend among tea connoisseurs.
Do you know who or what Millennials are?
Millennials, also known as Generation Y (or simply Gen Y), are the generation that comes after Generation X and before Generation Z. Researchers and the popular media use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years, with 1981 to 1996 being widely accepted as the generation's defining range. Millennials are probably no longer breaking news to you. You grew up with the Internet and social media, after all.
What do the Millennials drink?
It appears that the quality of their nutrition is important in their lives. From the yoghurt to the cup of tea, everything must be healthy, high-quality, and organic!
The millennials appear to be a little boring. They are not interested in learning about their parents' political and rebellious views. However, this does not imply that they have a "I don't care" attitude. Especially not when it comes to food – it's all about health.
The traditional cup of coffee has been replaced by a cup of tea, which has gone viral thanks to Millennials.
Should I drink tea or coffee? They want it to be more natural, fresher, healthier, and milder. These are the characteristics that millennials appreciate in tea and dislike in coffee. Tea is becoming a lifestyle drink and a real trend for this generation. A drink with which they identify and through which they express their outlook on life...
On social media, tea is trendy.
A photo of freshly cooked teas on Instagram, a pin on a new favorite tea recipe on Pinterest, a homemade black tea face mask: That is what millennials share with the rest of the world, what is important to them: a healthy lifestyle with a healthy body, high-quality, natural products.
Millennials are redefining tea as more than just a teabag.
Antibacterial and energizing, high in antioxidants and vitamins. This is only a brief overview of tea's health benefits. Everyone knows that chamomile tea relieves sore throats, but the specific and general benefits of various teas for the entire body are something that millennials are rediscovering for the sake of all of us.
They go online in search of new ways to use tea, whether as an alternative or addition to the hot steaming cup. This is how they make homemade iced tea , green tea smoothies, after-sun with black tea, and many other tea varieties! The DIY generation values creativity, individuality, and, most importantly, natural and organic products.
Tea is a small but vital part of your day, but its significance cannot be overstated. The same can be said for chocolate. So there's no need to overthink it – favorite chocolate meets favorite tea, and all is well with the world. So far, in my short time steeping with tea, I've learned a lot and am completely on board with this new trend and the millennial love of tea and all things related. Please let me know if you are a millennial and have this experience, and come see me if you want to try any of our wonderful teas! Have fun sipping!
