Some Tea History

According to ancient textual evidence through the third century A.D., cha was prescribed to increase alertness, improve depression, and reduce nervousness and digestive issues.

Whole loose leaves compressed into bricks were used as a form of currency prior to the Ming Dynasty in ancient China. It has also served as a form of currency in Mongolia, Siberia, Tibet, and Russia.

The traditional Eastern beverage was introduced to the West about 400 years ago, yet it has been consumed in the East for over 4,500 years.

In 1904, an iced version of the traditional hot brew was popularized at the World’s Fair in St. Louis. Because of the summer heat, people sought alternatives to hot beverages.
