Summary

Tea originated in China, and not only is it the national beverage of the country, it is one of the most popular beverages in the world.

There are six categories of Chinese tea; green tea, black tea, yellow tea, dark tea, white tea and oolong tea. Its many beneficial ingredients, such as polyphenols and vitamin C, help to keep the human body healthy, giving due weight to the traditional Chinese saying that "tea is the medicine of ten thousand ailments." Tea Therapy is a perfect combination of the six kinds of teas with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), maintaining the original flavor and function of each tea and providing effective TCM remedies at the same time. This is a good way to alleviate the symptoms of various ailments and illnesses.

This book is divided into two parts. The first part is a detailed and systematic interpretation of several aspects of tea; the history of tea culture, the efficacy, the medicinal history and the ingredients, as well as the usage of tea as therapy. The second part classifies diseases into different sorts and lists more than 180 easy to make tea treatments. Readers can find the most suitable remedies for their conditions.
