Chinese Green Tea 1st choice

Chinese Green Tea 1st choice

Chinese green tea, derived from the Camellia sinensis L. plant, has a fascinating and ancient history. According to legend, tea was first cultivated in China during the reign of Emperor Shen Nung, around 2737 BC .

The tea plant then arrived in Japan in the 8th century AD, where it was initially considered exclusively as a medicinal herb, before becoming a very widespread and appreciated drink

Over the centuries, tea cultivation has spread throughout the world. One of the first tea camellias to come to Europe belonged to Linnaeus, who received it from Captain Eckbert in 1763 and cultivated it in the Botanical Gardens of Uppsala. At the end of the nineteenth century, the director of the Botanical Garden of Pavia, Giovanni Briosi, experimented with the cultivation of tea, but only in the 1920s did Gino Pollacci manage to acclimatise the plant to the cold of northern Italy without the need for any coverage during the winter, thus giving rise to a new variety: Camellia sinensis ticinensis.

Today, Chinese green tea is appreciated throughout the world for its unique taste and beneficial properties. It is a symbol of culture, history and tradition, which continues to delight palates and promote health.
