“The first thought or idea is credited to the fanciful Emperor Shennong, who was said to have experienced 5 000 years back. His far-located orders needed, in addition to other things, that all drinking water be bubbled as a hygienic safeguard”

“A story goes that, one late spring day, while going by a removed piece of his domain, he and the court halted to rest. As per his managing, the workers started to bubble water for the court to drink.”

“Yes……they dried leaves from a close-by bramble fell into the bubbling water, and a cocoa substance was mixed into the water.”

“As a researcher, the Emperor was keen on the new fluid, drank some, and thought that it was extremely reviving. Thus, as per legend, tea was made in 2737 BC.”

“Pretty amazing isn’t it?”

“The highest ambittea lore : Philosophy, ethics and morality are blended into tea activity. People cultivate their morality and mind, and savor life through tasting tea, thereby attaining joy of spirit.”

“Chinese tea lore is several hundred years, possibly even thousands of years, older than that of Japan. It is said that Chinese tea lore places an emphasis on spirit and makes light of form. Tea lore had different representations at different historical periods. Teas are also various, but all embody the tea spirit of “clearness, respect, joy and truthfulness”.

“Tea in the Chinese culture has been actually known to be a cure or rather a way to keep blood sugar  lower before it becomes any Stage and then into diabetes.”

“If we know we have a history………..say for example diabetes in our family, the tea explained here can be good and help us and could help ourselves by becoming knowledgeable about our family history.”

“Don’t we want to get well here in America?”

“Well……..we have been blessed and want to share the good news from different cultures who are interested in healing and actually healing with what Mother Nature has grown for us and we just need to use it and act like we want to have good well-being and improve our health ourselves.”

Pu’er tea, a wonder cure for diabetics

“A sip of Pu’er tea can be as helpful as drugs in lowering blood sugar and preventing diabetes, says a recent press briefing by the Pu’er city government. That is the finding of scientists at Jilin University and the Changchun Science and Technology University, after two years of studies organized by Pu’er city, Yunnan province.”

“The provincial government’s Science and Technology Department also organized a forum for health experts to discuss the health benefits of Pu’er.”

“Owing to Pu’er tea’s obvious effect in restraining some enzymes related to diabetes, the experts believe drinking the right amounts of Pu’er tea can help lower blood sugar levels and prevent diabetes to some extent,” says Sheng Jun, deputy mayor of Pu’er city.”

“The first phase of the study involved 20 genetically obese lab rats with very high blood sugar levels. Researchers fed 10 of them with regular amounts of mature Pu’er tea while the other 10 rats were not given any.”

“Only two rats of the group not fed any tea, survived after 11 months. The others became infected and had sores before dying,” says Sheng. “Meanwhile, all the 10 rats that drank Pu’er tea survived, and showed no trace of sores or infection.”

“This is totally amazing isn’t it……..and we could do further researching and actual studies here in the United States so that we can help cure and heal our country.”
