The Zen of Tea

tea is not only a fitting drink for relaxing and socializing, but also for helping to refocus one's mind, which is perfect for all of my fellow honors students, to whom this site is supposed to be devoted to.

Some Tea History...

the tea plant and brewing tradition began originated in china, where the first written record of tea dates back to 200 BC.  tea was orignially consumed as a type of soup until buddhist monks began consuming it as a beverage.  it was later introduced to the japanese in the 9th century and in the 15th century was introduced to the west by jesuits (making it a great drink for those of us at bc!)
