Chinese tea and culture dates back to the post-classical history era of 600 A.D. and, although tea was originally consumed for medicinal purposes to treat digestive and nervous conditions, people living in the interior part of China pressed tea into brick "currency" to barter with other tribes.
Throughout the ages, tea (and in particular, green tea) has become not only a beverage to be sipped and enjoyed but still has strong cultural roots around the world.
