It occurred to me to ask this when I was talking with my friend about green tea and they asked if Jews have any teas in their ancient traditions like the Chinese.
It got me thinking, do we? Do any Jewish traditions involve tea, chai, coffee, or even cacao or carab? Some kind of stimulating drink, or perhaps a food like chocolate?
Did we invent or use coffee, tea, chai, chocolate or carab in ancient times? Or anything similar?
I know we got the wine traditions (lol) but I’m curious about the other side of things!
