A question I am often asked is whether or not tea is mentioned in the Bible.

Although there are Chinese tales of tea dating back to at least 2700 B.C., the events portrayed in the Bible took place in a very different region of the world. They did drink some herbal teas, such as olive leaf or pomegranate, but it’s likely that most people in that region of the world did not yet have access to Chinese tea leaves.

Is Drinking Tea a Sin?

Most people consider it perfectly acceptable to drink tea, but if this is something you are worried about, than perhaps you should talk to your local pastor to ease your mind.
