History of Green Tea

Written by greenteahealth.org

The green tea history is a very interesting one. The popularity of the green tea as a health drink is rooted thousands of years back then. Before it actually mingled into the mainstream of the western market, the green tea has first existed as a common drink among the Japanese and Chinese people. It took at least several centuries then before it was actually exported from the Asian continent. Moreover, if not for the clear proofs as stressed out by the scientific studies regarding the health benefits that the green tea exudes, it may not have gained a wide popularity.

The green tea history came from different countries all over the globe. Nobody can exactly figure out when the fame of green tea was amplified in China although most tea aficionados claim that it was approximately 3,000 years ago. A legend notes that its history started out in 2730 BC when Emperor Shen Nung mistakenly dropped the Camellia sinensis leaves into a boiling water. Regardless of its exact date, what is most important is that this drink has become really well known all over the world. Portugal started marketing green tea in the early phase of the 1500s, the Venetians during the latter phase of the century, while London sold it around 1650s.

Green tea is derived from the plant known as the Camellia sinensis. It comes from the same source as that of the black tea only that the green tea is organically processed therefore the beneficial ingredients are never stripped off during the method. The nutrients and chlorophyll components are likewise retained that is why it maintains its natural flavoring and coloring. The European and North American markets have patronized green tea in the recent years because of the medical findings that have hit the public. In the coming years, the green tea is foreseen to become more popular, even possibly to become a major drink in most households. The green tea history is as vibrant as the tea itself.

About Mammoth Art Guild

This post is from the site mammothartguild.com before content.

Mammoth Art Guild is now Mono Council for the Arts! The Council works in partnership with many organizations in Mono and Inyo Counties to provide greater access to the arts in this isolated rural Eastern Sierra Corridor. To do this, the arts council will launch the “Trail of the Trout” in the Summer of 2008 where six foot fiberglass sculptures of Trout decorated by local artists and sponsored by local businesses and organizations, will be placed along 150 miles of Highway 395 from Lone Pine to Bridgeport. This endeavor will have its debut at the Labor Day Festival of the Arts, held in conjunction with Million Dollar Troutstock, and will serve to bring together all the organizations along the Eastern Sierra Corridor and unite them though art. In the fall of 2008, the Trout sculptures will be auctioned and revenues generated will go towards funding the new arts council and arts in education in Inyo and Mono Counties.
