Cha Dao: The Way of Tea - HamletHub (press release) (registration) (blog)

Using the art of tea to create an atmosphere of tranquility and peace. Tea in Chinese culture is to Wine in Western culture. The origin of Tea as a beverage is one of legend, for the story goes that it was discovered by Shen Nong, a legendry emperor and father of Chinese medicine who lived over 5000 years ago. Shen Nong created a fire under a tree to boil some water, for he was parched and tired from searching for herbs. Shen Nong was allured by the aroma, and curious about the taste, so he drank it. Immediately he felt refreshed, as if all of his exhaustion had left his body. This made tea an herb used in medicine, however. it grew in great popularity in the courts of emperors, for people who could not stomach wine were given tea, and it eventually became the beverage of choice by the Sung Dynasty (A. D. 960). . The method used to cultivate tea was developed during... During this period, the Chinese did extensive research on tea. They studied where and how it grew, which soil, climate, and leaves were the best. They also studied when to pick and how to treat the leaves. From different regions, came different styles of brewing, serving, drinking. One of the most famous characters in the history of tea is Lo Yu. He devoted his life to tea, and wrote the Classic of tea, which was the 1 authorative book on tea. He investigated not only the tea, but the water, fire, and teapot. He is recognized as the Sage of Tea. There are 6 subdivisions of tea: White, Yellow, Light Green, Green, Red, and Black. Most Westerners are familiar with and drink red and black teas. All teas flavor are based on region, climate, soil, sunlight, and water. a green tea from the south will be different from a green tea in the north. Also the time the leaf is picked, and in what season it was picked will make a difference as well. There are actual schools where you can learn everything about tea, including the cha dao for each type of tea. The health benefits of tea depend on the type of tea itself, and also the quality of the tea. Green tea is the most known of all the teas in China, Oolong tea will have very similar health benefits. Its health benefits include: its rich in polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants can reduce the formation of free radicals, which play a role in inflammation, aging, and diseases in the body. Studies have also shown that catechins can kill bacteria and inhibit viruses like the influenza virus, potentially lowering your risk of infections. Catechins also can improve your dental health by killing bacteria that causes tooth decay. Green tea also contains L-theanine, which increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which has anti-anxiety effects. The combination of the two is particularly potent at improving brain function. Green tea has been shown to boost the metabolic rate and increase fat burning in the short term, reduce insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels. It also has been shown to lower total and LDL cholesterol, as well as protect the LDL particles from oxidation. Oolong tea, more specifically Tie Guan Yin, provides Potassium, Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Iron, Manganese, Phosphorus, Fluorine and Vitamin C. It has been known to prevent cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis. It slows the cellular aging process, improves metabolism, relieves stress, and promotes energy. Oolong tea improves digestion, protects the body from cardiovascular atherosclerosis, reduces body fat, and improves gallbladder function. Like all Chinese teas, Oolong is brimming with antioxidants. Puerh tea has been shown to lower cholesterol, treat metabolic syndrome by improving obesity, beneficially adjusting blood lipids, lowering blood sugar and preventing oxidation of cholesterol plaque. Researchers recently discovered that puerh tea inhibited tumor growth through a variety of mechanisms, and has a similar amount of antioxidants as green tea, and oolong tea. Puerh tea is fermented and contains a microorganism called Aspergillus Niger. It also contains Saccharomyces, which also helps prevent the growth of bad bacteria in the body.
