The Story of Tea (Chinese History)


Today, tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water. But did you know that tea was originally eaten as a vegetable and cooked with green porridge 6,000 years ago? It was only consumed as a beverage (aka matcha) 1,500 years ago. What I found rather interesting is this... 1. Tea actually sold for 10 times the price of coffee in Europe in 1700. 2. The Opium War was started all because of tea.
