Where Does Tea Come From?
Tea has been around for a very long time. It originated from China, and the
locals believe that it was first used in 2737 B.C.E. for its medicinal
properties. It was only introduced to the west when Portuguese priests visited
China in the 16th century. It arrived in England by 1660, but only became
popular in the 18th century. Tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia
Sinensis plant, typically grown in plantations. While most people might not
associate tea with any particular natural beauty, it is, in fact, the opposite!
Tea plantations are remarkable; their green, endless beauty can make the mind
soar, and the heart sing.
