This is officially my weekday note and not a weekend one. Today, at the Arabian Travel Market the Taiwanese kiosk had an interactive segment for the tea lovers. Me being an ardent coffee lover, what attracted me to the counter was the number of ingredients that was on display while the sign board said they were preparing tea.
Lei Cha or ground tea is not the same as Taiwanese tea. This thick, delicious and aromatic tea has originated from the Hakka people in the Hakka regions of Taiwan.
This tea is considered to be one of the most healthiest drinks and has a history dating back to the era of Three kingdoms. Apparently troops of General Zhang Fei fell ill due to plague before they were out capturing Chengdu. Their doctor prescribed a herbal mixture which miraculously cured the men.
