History Of Tea TEA! All tea comes from the Camillia Sinesis plant and the bushes are best grown at altitudes of 3,000-6,000 ft. The bush lasts for several years, and is kept to a growing height of 3-5 feet for easier harvesting and increased yields. Tea is native only to China, India and Ceylon. However, it is now grown as far apart as Russia, Argentina, Japan and Australia. From this one plant the leaves are plucked and fermented (customary term used, but actually it is oxidation, not fermenting that is occurring).

There is so much to tell about tea, so in the months to come I will write a feature story about a specific tea. I will be breaking each segment down and giving information in Let’s Talk Tea Digital Magazine. Black Tea will be the feature for the next issue. I will write about the origin, health aspects and share food pairings. So until then here’s to tea, Brenda

White tea is from China and consists of new growth buds from a special varietal tea bush called Narcissus or Chai-cha bushes. Also it is from the White Peony bush. The leaves are naturally withered and dried in the sun almost immediately after harvesting.

Featured Author of “Of Roots, Shoes and Rhymes” & “Uncommon Bond”

C.L. Gillmore Novelist & Poet

About the Author C. L. Gillmore was born and raised in Muscatine, Iowa and now resides in Surprise, Arizona. She was a special education teacher for 25 years and gave everything to her passion for teaching. She apparently didn’t get the memo that retirement is the time for relaxation and reflection on time well-spent in her recently completed career. Instead, she set out to excel in her other passion: writing romance novels and poetry. Her first novel and accompanying book of poetry have garnered prizes and high acclaim. She is working on the sequel to Uncommon Bond, taking us on the continuing journey of haunted characters who reconnected via Facebook 40 years after the last time they kissed. A Friend Request will tell the rest of the story for Rose and Jake in poignant poetry and prose.

“A page turned...New Chapters begin. The sequel yet to unfold. Never forgotten and never to end. Images etched on each soul.” from “Of Roots, Shoes and Rhymes by C.L. Gillmore Published by Discover the Region.com, llc™ Print & Digital www.discovertheregion.com Copyright 2013
