Food and Drink History : The Evolution of Tea

With regard to the evolution of tea, we all know (or most of us are in agreement) that the Chinese invented tea. That was the beginning. :)



But did you also know that, in the beginning, before there were loose tea leaves, there were tea bricks; and these bricks were deemed so valuable that they could be used as currency.
In addition, there is a legend passed down through the ages (for about 5000 years) which credits a Chinese emperor named Shennong with the discovery of how to make a tea infusion. Yah! It seems the emperor was added to an extensive list of discoverers who discovered how stuff works by accident! :)
Fortunately, the rest of the world benefits and we can all enjoy cups of wonderful brewed tea.

The preceding paragraphs above are a brief summary of her post which discusses the evolution of tea.  My discovery of her blog was also accidental. But what an awesome find!  :)

Foodie Friday ~ Immune-boosting Smoothie ~ Order at Starbucks | Well Good

Lucky me. Years ago, had a friend who worked for Starbucks, but also worked with me at a temp job. One of his perks for being a Starbucks employee was getting a free of bag of coffee. At our temp job he would bring it in and let us brew a pot. What a friend huh??

However ... do you only go to Starbucks for the coffee? OK. It's true. They do have great coffee! But that's not all they've got!
