Tea is prepared by pouring boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub native to Asia. After water it is the most widely consumed drink in the world. Tea originated in the southwest of China and was used as a medicinal drink. It became a popular drink throughout China during the Tang dynasty and soon tea drinking spread to other East Asian countries. Portuguese priests and merchants introduced it to the West during the 16th century. During the 17th century, drinking tea became fashionable among Britons, who started large-scale production and commercialization of the plant in India to bypass a Chinese monopoly at that time.

Coffee is prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant. Coffee plants are cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, India, and Africa. The two most commonly grown are the highly regarded Arabica, and the less sophisticated but stronger and more hardy Robusta. The latter is resistant to the coffee leaf rust Hemileia vastatrix but has a more bitter taste. Once ripe, coffee beans are picked, processed, and dried. Green (unroasted) coffee beans are one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world
