Chinese Tea Culture

China is the cradle of tea and tea culture. Tea is the national beverage of China. It is an important iconic identity of Chinese people. Different from other introductions to tea classifications and tea culture online, we regionally focus on them, exactly in East China – Jiangsu province, Anhui province, Zhejiang province and Jiangxi province. Tea traditionally is one of seven musts for daily life (Firewood, Rice, Oil, Salt, Sauce, Vinegar and Tea). Before it was systemized and theorized by Lu Yu in his classic work entitled The Classic of Tea, tea had been steeped into the daily life of people. It is a symbol of Chinese culture, and a specific embodiment of Chinese literature, painting, calligraphy, religion, medicine and spirituality. The tea culture only exists in China, represented by the Unique Cha Dao Ceremony, which has been taken as a major in some universities of China like Zhejiang Agriculture & Forestry University headquartered in Lin’an, Hangzhou. Traditionally, ten top teas of China consist of Dragon Well Tea, Spring Snail Tea, Yellow Mountain Fur Peak Tea, Mount Jun Silver Needle Tea, Qi Men Red Tea, Big Red Robe Tea, Melon Seed Tea, Iron Goddess Tea, Houkui Tea and Maojian Tea.
