In 1101-1125, Chinese Emperor Hui Tsung became tea obsessed and wrote about the best tea-whisking methods and held tea tasting tournaments in court.

The story goes that he was so obsessed with tea that he didn’t notice the Mongol take over of his empire.

At this time tea houses in gardens started to pop up around China.

  1. I am addicted by tea. Ya, but not from Chinese tea. English tea, for example English Breakfast, English Tea No. 1 and early Grey Tea. I drink with milk and nothing else. 😉

    earl is grey and tastes with milk good. 😉
