During 1101-1125 the Chinese Emperor Hui Tsung became very obsessed with tea and wrote about the best tea-whisking methods.

He then started holding tea-tasting tournaments in the court.

In fact apparently he was so obsessed with “tea”,that he didn’t even notice the Mongol take over of his empire.

Also during this time Teahouses in garden settings, were popping up around China.

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.
