History of Tea From Buddhist monks using it in their religious ceremonies to American revolutionaries tossing it in to Boston Harbor, tea has become more than a beverage; it has become an event. For nearly 5,000 years this drink has been a source of medicine, meditation, piracy, political upheaval, social order, congregation, and superstition. While the roles tea has played in Eastern and Western civilization are abundant, it is derived from a plant native to Central and Eastern Asia. Botanically, the tea they drink is of the genus camellia and the species sinesis. This temperamental plant, which is greatly affected by variations of soil, elevation, and climate, originated in Central Asia and can be separated into three basic types: black, green, and oolong. The process used to prepare the leaves establishes the tea's classification, while oxidation determines its color, body, and flavor. With black teas, the leaves are withered, rolled, sifted, and fermented, delivering a hearty flavor and rich amber color.
