ul> The History Of Tea
in southern India
As the beginning of the world is said to have begun in one location, the fertile crescent between the Tigris and Euprhrates rivers, tea also has a central area of origin. Tea became an important beverage where the lands of northeast India, North Myrnamar (then Burma), southwest China and Tibet meet. Yunnan Province in southwest China has been called by many tea historians, the birthplace of tea. It is home of the oldest cultivated tea tree which is said to be 3,200 years old.
Tea is the second most consumed drink in the world next to water. While tea is a world drink, most people, when they think of tea, often associate tea with China. The Chinese have consumed tea for thousands of years and during the Han Dynasty, tea was used for its healing properties.
The earliest written record of tea is from the 10th century B.C.
In the 6th century B.C., Laozi, a classical Chinese philosopher, called tea the elixir of life
The first written book on tea preparation was written by Wang Bao in 59 B.C.
The first book extolling the medicinal purposes of tea was written in 221 by physician and surgeon Hua Tuo.
During the Sui Dyanasty (589-618), Buddhist monks became the first tea evangelists, taking this elixir of life to Japan.
In the 12th century, during the Song Dynasty (960-1279), the traditional process of steaming tea was drastically changed into what is the typical preparation style used today. It was at this time, the Chinese began brewing tea.
Monkey’s harvesting tea
There was a tale told in China which originated hundreds of years ago of monkeys picking tea leaves. Still today, there are many brands featuring “Monkey picked tea.” Some of them are Red & Green Co., Teavana, dr. tea’s, FarLeaves, FooJoy and Island Teas.
Tea lovers should rejoice for China and its rich history of providing the world with a most wonderful beverage.
Tea has been used for its medicinal purposes for over 2000 years. Proponents claim tea can slow or help prevent cancers, have beneficial effects on the heart, help protect teeth from decay, help end insomnia, prevention of intestinal disorders, and reducing the risk of diabetes.
Caution should be taken before ingesting highly concentrated tea extracts. Consult your doctor before taking extracts to treat or prevent diseases. The best medicine for a healthy lifestyle is eating well, exercise and replacing sodas with tea couldn’t hurt either. And the old adage, “everything in moderation” would be good to follow when consuming tea, as well as any beverage.
