"For Every Tea A Season" - Ancient Chinese Tea Farmers Working Over Time

    • History

We’re riding the time machine straight back to Ancient China, to discuss the origins and evolution of one of the world’s oldest industries: Tea. Today’s show is all about the work of ancient Chinese tea farmers, guided by Dr. Justin Hill - author, historian, and tea aficionado (Writer; Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny & The Drink and Dream Teahouse). We’ll cover what was - and still is - required to source and prepare a dizzying array of tea varieties. And we’ll explore the origins of the world’s first global commodity, and its continued cultural importance in China, and around the world. So - grab a nice warm cup of your favorite infusion, sit back, and enjoy our ancient tales of tea. (recorded over zoom)
