During this time Chinese tea drinking was on the rise, as were elegant teahouses and teacups carefully crafted from porcelain and pottery.

Also at this time drinking powdered and frothed tea or tea scented with flowers was widespread while other earlier flavourings were not being enjoyed any more.

It was at the same time as Zen Buddhism was caught on in Japan, via China which brought with it tea-drinking temple rituals.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
