Tea

Tea, an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis, an evergreen shrub native to Asia. After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world. There are many different types of tea; some teas, like Darjeeling and Chinese greens, have a cooling, slightly bitter, and astringent flavour, while others have vastly different profiles that include sweet, nutty, floral or grassy notes.


Tea plants are native to East Asia, and probably originated around the meeting points of the lands of north Burma and southwest China. During 2737B.C., the king of China, Shennong went through some villages and set under a tree to take rest. Near that tree, some water were boiling on a mud pot. Some tree leafs poured automatically on those boiling water flown by wind . With in some time, an attractive smell came from that boiling water pot, which attracts the king the most. From those water, the king drunk a little and felt more comfortable. After that he loved to drink that mixture water. During that time, some were using those leafs as medicine. Gradually those were using as daily drinks by common people.



When someone feels tired, he may drink tea to feel relax or to gain some extra energy. When we get up, we take this to fit with our environment. More number of people drink this regularly and some drink for some pleasure.
