Tea or "chá" in mandarin is an ancient medicinal beverage consisting of water poured over the leaves & buds of the plant Camellia sinensis, a sacred tree and plant teacher that has inspired the Taoists for health, longevity and meditation. Tea originated in a region situated on the frontier between Laos, China and Myanmar, known today as Yunnan. To trace its origin, Chinese are placing the “discovery” of tea from a 4000 years old legend. Later on Tea became an important subject of study, was prescribed by apothecaries for its medicinal properties and used in temple during sessions of meditation. It also became an important political and economical element of trade across Asia. Tea is now cultivated and drink extensively across the world. 
With 10 years of experiences studying, exploring and practicing with the plant Camellia Sinensis, it is a precious honor for Jade to be facilitate this course for you, if you are feeling the call to deepen and explore.
