Lina herbal teas have become a popular source of herbal tea in the U.S. thanks to their distinctive taste and aroma.

In a new book, author and former New York City bartender Maria LaRose explores the many uses of herbal teases, which include tea party cocktails, Asian inspired cocktails, and more.

The tea was named the Best Asian Tea of the Year by the American Tea Society in 2012, and now Lina has launched an online shop where customers can purchase tea accessories for their tea parties and other gatherings.

LaRose started the book The Best of Tea with her husband and her two sons, and she shares a personal story about how she first discovered her love for tea.

Her book features stories of people all over the world who use tea as a social lubricant and as a tool to get their thoughts and feelings out.
