A little bit of History about tea from 1422-1502.

The Japanese tea ceremony emerges onto the scene. First created by a Zen priest named Murata Shuko, the ceremony is called Cha-no-yu, literally meaning “hot water tea” and celebrates the mundane aspects of everyday life.

Tea’s status elevates to an art form and almost a religion.

In 1484 Japan’s shogun Yoshimasa encourages tea ceremonies, painting, and drama.

 “Tea is the elixir of life.” – Eisai, Kissa Yojoki

Eisai, the father of Japanese tea, was a Buddhist monk who brought Zen Buddhism and tea from China in the late 12th century.

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.
