‘Once upon a time’ there was a household tradition of drinking various herbal tea blends made from local plants and some from far-away places. Generations of housewives and mothers were taught by their mothers how to use herbal tea blends as targeted medicinals to heal their family of common ailments. This centuries-old wisdom brought comfort, health, and restoration, but through the years much of the understanding has been lost.
Wikipedia tells us this: “The history of tea is long and complex, spreading across multiple cultures over the span of thousands of years. Tea likely originated in the Yunnan region during the Shang dynasty as a medicinal drink. An early credible record of tea drinking dates to the 3rd century AD, in a medical text written by Hua Tuo. Tea was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in Lebanon during the 16th century.
