It was only during the end of 18th century, with the reduction in taxes that tea became available to the public.

Italy and their coffee culture
Italy is a home of fashion, food and of course the Eiffel tower. But when it comes to beverages Italy is the true home of espresso. Serving a shot of espresso in any home has become a tradition in Italy which can be drunk at any time of the day.
Espresso in Italy is usually drunk only in the morning, often with sweet treats, like a croissant. This is because the milk in the cappuccino is considered part of a meal, which is why it is avoided at other times of day as it is too rich.
